The  sun peeks through the window blinds

As  morning light  exposure finds

Let’s welcome  in  this brand new day

Before  it too does fly  away.

The leaves have gone,  the trees are bare

The  smell of  snow now fills the air

As  winter creeps  upon its knees

The  earth  beneath  begins to freeze.

Too soon  the frost  will move on in

While  dark of night  shall  soon begin !

I  cannot  wait  for dawn  to show

From  whence  the sounds of life doth flow

The  darkness of the night  will fade

As  sunbeams from daylight  invade.

The  shadows that are  left behind

As  all  the early hours  unwind

Do  leave with us  this lucent sight

Escaping  emptiness  each  night !

There is a sound that fills the air

It seems to well from everywhere

And floods the skies with sweet surprise,

Assails the heart with joyous sighs.

Oh, what great hope new seasons bring

Anticipating  everything

The lure and charm of  “everydays”

That daily sing of God in praise,

The warmth and kindness and the love

Now emanates from God above !

There was a man that I used to know

He was my gardener long ago

A man of honor and good intent

Who said exactly just what he meant.

True, I knew he was a man of God

And back in those days that was not odd

He went about his work with great ease

His goal in life was to help and please.

A kindly man full of deep respect

Not an inch of ground did he neglect

His parting words I can still recall

They never changed, no not once at all.

He taught me a lesson that does survive

” See you tomorrow, if I be alive ” !

 

THANK YOU, JOHN ATANASIO !

 

 

 

I NAKED CAME ( 2019 ) 2019/01/20

All through my life these dreams I’ve had

Some good, some sad with others glad

Like wishes I have made before

That often slipped under the door

To get so lost that all forget

This life has had no ending yet !

The time is still to come my dear

With climax that conveys no fear

Into this world I naked came

And when I leave twill be the same !

 

 

THE RISING OF THE SUN ( 2018 ) 2018/12/18

Sometimes the words get in the way

Of all those thoughts we have to say

Like all the angels in the skies

Whose wings do bid us sweet goodbyes

Or shutters closed ‘gainst bitter cold

Burst open for each sunshine’s role

Like evening prayer before we sleep

Filled with our promises to keep

Our lives in order,  should He come

Before the rising of the sun !

 

 

BE SAFE SOMEHOW ( 2018 ) 2018/08/19

There’s so much sadness that I see

It hollows out the heart in me

Sometimes one can’t tell day from night

Or when the path turns left or right !

How does one question up or down

Or if it’s time to smile or frown

Just keep on easing forward now

Praying all will be safe somehow !
