BEAUTY OBSCENE ( 2020 ) 2020/06/04

Tis  the  time  of  year  when  sunshine  smiles

And  the  sky is  so clear  for  miles  and  miles,

When  the  birds  in  the branches  of  the  trees

Circulate  their  message  into  the  breeze

While  the gentle  wind  does  rustle  the  leaves

Now  playing  in  the  shadow  of  the eaves.

The  trees seem  to  yawn  and  stretch  in  the sun

As  spreading  shrubs  have  their  flowers  begun

So  it  is  that  our  world  of  growing  green

Paints  pictures  to  all  of  beauty  obscene  !

 

AMERICA, I LOVE YOU (2020 ) 2020/02/17

I  love America,  land of the free

I  love America,  tis home to me

As  she spreads  from the mountains  to the plains

Replete  with  thunder storms  and  summer rains.

From  her northern  tips to the  sandy shore

Cross  the valleys deep  and wide,  trees galore

The  beauty  of this  land  entices  all

Through  winter,  springtime, summer and  the fall !

A  tiny bit of heaven grows

In  secret places no one knows

Sometimes  a corner near a hedge

Or closeby at the garden’s edge

Under  a pine tree  by the fence

With smell of violets intense.

Around  a tree stump you can see

Peat  moss plays host to wild daisy

The  dandelions tramp all about

While peonies  their color flout,

Oh  such a sight for all to see

And  witness as God’s litany !

My heart  so full,  tis sure to pop

My brain’s  elated,  I can’t stop

I  view outside,  what do I see

This image God has  made for me.

There’s such rare  beauty to be found

From azure  sky with its surround

Like  all the joy  He’s gifted me

His heaven,  earth,  His  world to see !

Now I have  trod ten thousand miles

Up hills and  dales passed  country stiles

I’ve  climbed the steps  to reach the sky

Both  night and day as clouds rolled by.

I’ve dreamt  the way that  scholars do

Mindful  of all  that can  be true

My  heart and soul are  caught in it

Somehow  it  all just  seems to fit.

Let’s  thank the  Lord  for His great gifts

As  through  our lives  His beauty  sifts !

 

 

 

 

 

ASEA ( 2019 ) 2019/05/24

Our world is made of fantasy

Of wishes, dreams and ecstasy

Of worry, hope and dignity

With many other traits you’ll see

Despite how we may try agree

We are awash and blind asea !

 

HIS WORLD DECOR ( 2019 ) 2019/04/26

Red, fuscia, purple, lime and green

These are the colors to be seen

With yellow, orange, pink, white, blue

To celebrate the springlike view,

Around the corners, every shade

And tint of green the Lord has made.

A myriad of colors bright

To lighten up each local sight

How did the Lord know long before

The beauty of His world decor ?

We thank You, Lord, for this Your gift

You sure know how to spirits lift !

I look outside, what do I see

A field of violets smiles at me

While over in the corner there

Two lilacs do their blooms compare.

Hydrangeas all like spreading out

They love the space and so they shout

“Hey, look at me, I’m gussied up

My blossoms fill your largest cup !”

Consider all the dandelions

They are the brighest of all kinds

And when they grow close to the ground

They’re the best cover to be found.

I’d like to think that flowers know

How much we love them as they grow

And keep themselves sweet as they can

In tribute to God’s love of man !

 

 

HIS MAJESTY ( 2019) 2019/03/02

The world outside’s pristine and white

A sparkling, glistening joyous sight

There’s not a single moving thing

That to each surface snow won’t cling.

All silence shouts with one accord

Let’s take a moment to afford

God’s challenge that He brings to us

In life and times too glorious.

How little do we know or care

About this heritage we share

For all we love is there to see

The power of His majesty !

 

WINTER BEAUTY ( 2019 ) 2019/02/12

The snow has covered all the ground

There’s not another soul around

Our world of white is drowning in

A swirl of ice and sleet and wind.

There is no color anywhere

Except for trees whose limbs are bare

And evergreens both small and tall

Whose silouettes display it all.

This winter beauty that we see

Will fade away eventually !

 

VISITORS ( 2019 ) 2019/02/08

It occurs to me the world’s upside down

And instead of smiling it wears a frown

Now that’s not the way it was meant to be

With its splendid vistas and great beauty.

Stop for a moment and take a real look

There’s billions of photos filling each book

No one can create a new mountain peak

It’s those who try climbing of whom we speak.

The wisdom of God is beyond our reach

No matter how much or how hard they teach

The world is not ours, one we could not make

All have a short span to visit not break !

This world lies cloaked in veils of white

That floated down all through the night

The morning woke to wond’rous sight

All layered like ice cream delight.

The air so crisp, it filled each room

And chased away old winter’s gloom

Let’s pray the laughter will resume

As happy smiles begin to bloom !

 

 

GIFTS FROM YOU ( 2018 ) 2018/09/25

Whatever I am, dear Lord, I know

I owe it to You, You’ve made it so

You are the stars and the skies they’re in

With clouds above at Your every whim.

The rainbows we glimpse with color bright

A moon o’erhead on the starlit night

You are the dreams we are waiting for

The hopes and wishes and plans galore

That do fill our hearts and minds with glee

And create Your world this sight to see.

The birds and trees, the flowers that bloom

Assorted odors filling each room

The snow and rain, the wind as it blew

All of our treasures are gifts from You !

 

OUT OF CHAOS, ORDER.  AMEN.

 

 

 

 

THE STATE OF MAN ( 2018 ) 2018/09/18

Morning shades of drab tans and gray

Are always getting in the way

Of peach and golds to shocking pinks

That welcome most as sunrise sinks.

Oh what I’d give at last to see

The rainbow this world used to be

Where all felt a great need to share

With those who chanced to visit there.

I’ve often wished that I might find

A fairy wand, the magic kind,

To do the job tales tell it can

And much improve the state of man !

 

GOD’S ENTITY ( 2018 ) 2018/09/14

I see the rain now tumbling down

Like teardrops rushing to the ground

The Power it accompanies

Is Parent to all plants and trees.

How splendid is the light He brings

To all of this world’s living things

For even mountains rise with time

While valley levels will decline,

How wonderful it is to be

Creations of God’s Entity !

The eagle flies and tilts his wings

Into the wind as courage springs

The sight of which from earth below

Imprints his efforts in this show

Upon those seeking there aground

The eloquence that he has found

With visions of his grandeur high

He is the strength in God’s great sky !

 

WINTER WONDERLAND ( 2018 ) 2018/03/22

There is a sight that I can see

It is sheer wonderment to me

With April just around the bend

When will this winter ever end ?

Outside my window by the pane

I see the snow, it’s here again

The barren branches are all white

Three inches higher than last night !

The snow’s been falling to the ground

It doesn’t seem to make a sound

Warm here inside, I’m sure it’s grand

God’s brand new winter wonderland !

There stands an elm outside my door too scarred and old

A magnificent stanchion mighty to behold

This aged tree, true remnant of a long ago

Attests to all, the verity of what we know

God’s works are beauteous and marvelous to see

Enjoy it all for God alone can make a tree !

I love the pictures of the snow

Where e’er you look, where e’er you go

The skies are polka-dotted too

With snowflakes drifting over you

While here and there no space is bare

The snow’s piling up everywhere !

Observe the sky, today it’s gray

And changes colors day by day

But now is winter time and so

We can’t be sure what hues will show.

The golden glows of summertime

Do verge upon a scene sublime

I most prefer the plums and pinks

Especially as sundown sinks.

I wonder if the Lord can see

How glorious His sky must be

To all of us who looking up

Adore His overflowing cup ?

The stars that show in night time sky

Remind us all that God is nigh

Oh such great treasure we can see

That shines through all infinity.

The skies are ageless evermore

A world in which exists no door

There are no limits no restraints

This place where angels bide with saints !

The morn awakes and  yawns aloud

The sky is clear, there’s ne’er a cloud

A breeze o’erhead begins to blow

We’re in the midst of autumn’s show.

Her colors changing every day

Glow brighter still along the way

How wonderful God’s palette is

Creating pigments, He’s a whiz !

 

GOD’S RAINBOW COLORS ( 2017 ) 2017/09/29

Blossoms in the garden, how shall we bear their loss

Soon the winds of autumn will all their petals toss

How often in past summers and the springtimes too

That flowers smiled and waved most of each daytime through.

All the fragile magic and all the fragrant smells

Folded in those tiny buds resting in their shells

What would this world look like without the shades of green

Plus God’s rainbow colors and everything between ?

 

 

ROOFTOPS ( 2017 ) 2017/04/25

Filed under: POEMS.....THOUGHTS.....MEMORIES — bogdanosclaire @ 7:07 am
Tags: , , , , ,

As I look out o’er roofs and chimney top

There’s no place I can make my vision stop

That is not brick and mortar all alone

Accompanied by wood or tar or stone.

Now rooftops are a lonely barren place

Lacking enthusiasm to fill our space

They bring no beauty or accommodate

In any way the grace of man to date.

Of course they serve a purpose  that’s a must

Saving all from cold, wind, storm, rain or dust

But I would love to look across that span

Envisioning God’s beauty all I can !

 

 

ALL THE JOY ( 2017 ) 2017/04/02

Let’s thank the Lord for many things

Like sun and rain and April springs

Including all the birds that sing

And trees that host most everything,

The fields and valleys lush with life

Trails cut through forests like a knife

A night time sky that glows so bright

With stars and comets in their flight,

We thank You Lord for all these things

And all the joy Your loving brings !

I’m peering through a veil of white

That is this early morning’s sight

Watching the snowflakes filter down

In pirouettes close to the ground

They flutter, dance and swirl about

Their silent beauty spinning out !

The colors of the rainbow are

As glorious as evening star

That’s ringed by comets from afar

And shares their beauty near and far !

 

THROUGH THE DOOR ( 2017 ) 2017/02/04

I love the way the snowflakes fall

In their great rush to cover all

They land in heaps about knee high

And keep on swirling from the sky

This place is clouded in pure white

It sure is one dramatic sight.

Just feel the air it’s frosty cold

The snow’s a power to behold

It glitters bright for those who share

The magic and elusive glare.

I sure would love to greet the sun

Assured that soon the cold is done

Though we shall have to wait some more

Before this spring walks through the door !
