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 !

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 !

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 !

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 !

 

MOMENTS OF CLARITY ( 2018 ) 2018/08/13

In age one learns to appreciate

God’s sweet pleasures as they meet our gait,

What was, has faded into the past

Leaving remnants to soften the last.

As time alone fast winnows away

Visions return to lighten the day

Although the picture’s not always clear

Moments of clarity do appear.

God in His wisdom which we may share

Guarantees all the depth of His care !

This heart of mine it hungers so

Too much to say before we go

The words don’t come so easy now

Caught in the throat, sometimes somehow.

A simple act of nature’s need

Bids all who dare, take care indeed

The changes come and fall away

Too soon we’ll meet that fInal day !
