REVERSE GEAR ( 2020 ) 2020/03/15

How  often is  it that we think

This  world of ours  is on the brink

That  maybe we’ll  fall off  the  ledge

Or  slip as  we sit on the edge

I’m  truly  stuck in reverse  gear

What happens  next can  hold no fear !

 

END TIME GOALS ( 2020 ) 2020/01/23

We do not know through all these years

A time so full of angst and fears

Is this the war from days of old

That ages have this story told

The one the prophets have declared

For which we now must be prepared.

Whomever dreamt that we would be

Faced by this great calamity,

May God have mercy on our souls

Help us secure our end time goals !

 

 

ALL YOU DO ( 2019 ) 2019/09/26

Oh precious Lamb, You are so sweet

This world is kneeling at Your feet

You are the world’s bright shining Star

All that we hope and dream You are.

The times we knew are fading fast

Have we the stamina to last,

What must we do to prove to You,

Praise God and honor all You do !

 

 

 

 

JOYOUS AND FREE ( 2019 ) 2019/09/19

A  little  bird there on the  wing

His pretty song did choose to sing

The notes did  travel on  the air

To lend the  hour a special  flair,

Oh  how I  wish  that  I could  be

So like  that bird,  joyous and free !

 

 

NO GUARANTEES ( 2019 ) 2019/09/06

There  are no  guarantees in life

For mother,  child,  husband  or wife,

We all  have travelled  on life’s road

Unburdened  or with heavy load

There is no  crowd to cheer us on

No magic  words to lean upon

No tragic curse that  we’re aware

Or law that says  what must be fair.

We understand that on each path

There can be times of  doubt or wrath

Yet often  seems so  very sweet

When hope and joy  with love compete

I do not  know  the  why of it

And pray  most times that we shall fit !

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

EVERY TURN ( 2019 ) 2019/09/02

Shimmering  stars are seen at night

Displaying  all their  brilliant light

Creating highways  in the sky

On  which explorers do  rely.

I wish  that we on earth  could know

The  magic that God’s sky does show

Of  life as is and  how we learn

To  choose our  path at every turn !

 

 

COME WHAT MAY ( 2019 ) 2019/08/10

Whatever war that has been fought

Tis one more lesson to be taught

For no one wins as each has lost

And every war does have great cost.

Sometimes it takes a lifetime long

To hear the ring of freedom’s song

There is a price that all must pay

To win the battle of the day.

Therefore when lives do meet their end

And each has chosen foe and friend

The choice one makes on that last day

Will stand forever,  come what may !

 

 

PROXIMITY ( 2019 ) 2019/05/23

I often think the Lord is there

In every garden that we share

With odors that o’ercome the air

And seize upon our senses rare.

A garden is this magic place

In which God lends to us the grace

That brings a smile to each one’s face

Engulfing us in His embrace.

I wish that I could always be

Involved with such an entity

Like plant or flower, vine and tree

Within our Lord’s proximity !

 

 

 

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 !

 

 

 

DISPLAY ( 2019 ) 2019/04/08

Life is not strange nor is it cruel

It violates no golden rule

For in most seasons, young or old

The fields are plowed or bought or sold.

Some lie fallow while some are green

Others produce to the obscene

No two alike that is God’s way

As each creates his own display !

 

 

SILENCE OR VOICE ( 2018 ) 2018/10/05

Filed under: POEMS.....THOUGHTS.....MEMORIES — bogdanosclaire @ 4:27 am
Tags: , , , , ,

There is a door that opens wide

To reveal secrets deep inside

Within life’s labyrinth of fears

Close to a hydrant full of tears.

This battle which abides within

Determines if we lose or win

As God alone does aid our choice

So each may choose silence or voice !

 

MAKE A CHOICE ( 2018 ) 2018/07/09

Filed under: POEMS.....THOUGHTS.....MEMORIES — bogdanosclaire @ 4:26 am
Tags: , , , , ,

There is a choice that one must make

About the path that each shall take

And of the road that lies ahead

With twists and gaps and bumps instead.

Our trail through life is seldom smoothed

It’s crammed with ruts and slightly grooved

Where we who struggle on alone

Will stumble o’er both rock and stone.

Tis best remembering to swerve

When we approach curve uopn curve

This course we’ve taken is intense

But God’s our Help and our Defense !

 

NO MATTER WHAT ( 2018 ) 2018/03/16

My dearest child what can I say

To get you through your darkest day,

Which words of peace may I impart

To help you ease your aching heart ?

With all the love time mayhaps bring

Like joyous songs we learn to sing,

The word of God is what we’ve got

To keep us safe, no matter what !

 

TO SUCCEED ( 2018 ) 2018/01/14

Filed under: POEMS.....THOUGHTS.....MEMORIES — bogdanosclaire @ 4:02 am
Tags: , , , , ,

There is one joy each day may bring

Your choice to laugh or dance and sing

To smile, enjoy or to correct

Some error made  or to expect

Perhaps a chance to walk with God

And tread the path our forebears trod.

To share a bit of helping hand

Pick up the pieces or expand

Then comprehend the value of

Undaunted courage laced with love

A time to aid when there is need

Or teach another to succeed !

 

 

 

 

IT’S POSSIBLE ( 2017 ) 2017/11/26

What is it that life offers all

The chance to shape what may befall

A hope to curb our every whim

Control those steps outside the rim

To spend our days pursueing peace

And from all powers find our release

For somehow time gets in the way

When love does steal the heart away !

 

USE YOUR VOICE ( 2017 ) 2017/09/03

Filed under: POEMS.....THOUGHTS.....MEMORIES — bogdanosclaire @ 8:15 am

Let us not make waste of all our days

By holding on to life’s former ways

Let us lift our heads and hearts besides

To stem the crush and the flood of tides.

Let’s make an effort to strive once more

To welcome the Lord through our front door

Time has come for us to make a choice

Stand up for faith, start using your voice !

 

 

SET US FREE ( 2017 ) 2017/05/24

The shifting sands of life do blow

Across our vision wide and slow

And changes all the views we see

As we seek out God’s harmony.

The winds of time have come and gone

And left our dreams both pale and wan

Escape, escape, that cannot be

For none but death shall set us free !

 

 

 

IN DARKNESS ( 2017 ) 2017/04/22

Filed under: POEMS.....THOUGHTS.....MEMORIES — bogdanosclaire @ 9:25 am

The pendulum moves side to side

It is a somewhat boring ride

And doesn’t variate a bit

When in the rut where it does fit

And that’s a lesson to be taught

About this web in which we’re caught.

Sometimes it may be truly fine

When one decides to tow the line

However that does not preclude

A change in venue or in mood

For each must have freedom of choice

So they may exercise their voice !

 

 

TO NEVER TRY ( 2017 ) 2017/04/20

Filed under: POEMS.....THOUGHTS.....MEMORIES — bogdanosclaire @ 7:30 am
Tags: , , , , ,

Is there a goal that one must seek

To make us stronger, not so weak,

A purpose that each one must find

To help escape a path unkind.

A babe is born most are the same

Except for color, sex and name

It’s left to them to win or lose

The way of life that each shall choose.

Some win, some fail, some others cry

And there are those who never try !

 

 

 

WINDING STAIR ( 2016 ) 2016/11/19

Filed under: POEMS.....THOUGHTS.....MEMORIES — bogdanosclaire @ 5:04 am

Some place there is a winding stair

Where does it go I do not know

I’m only sure it will be there

When ’tis the time for each to go !

But what direction shall one take

For stairs descend or rise above

You have a choice, make no mistake

The coward’s safety or God’s love  !

 

 

 

A CHOICE ( 2016 ) 2016/11/07

Filed under: POEMS.....THOUGHTS.....MEMORIES — bogdanosclaire @ 9:52 am
Tags: , , , , ,

I wish, I wish I had the words

To tell the crowd how to become

A connosieur of the absurd

Or prophecy of dumb and numb.

This world grows smaller day by day

And madness has now grown a voice

I wish that I could run away

Or help dear God to find a choice !

 

STAND UP ( 2016 ) 2016/10/29

Filed under: POEMS.....THOUGHTS.....MEMORIES — bogdanosclaire @ 3:22 am

The more I see the more I think

This world it totters on the brink

Seems no solution has appeared

The final outcome is quite clear

We’re on the eve of some attack

How shall we win our freedom back ?

I hear the sound of our retreat

We need to get back on our feet

Stand up for what you know is right

We can’t afford to lose this fight !

 

 

NO LONGER FREE ( 2016 ) 2016/09/06

Filed under: POEMS.....THOUGHTS.....MEMORIES — bogdanosclaire @ 4:37 am
Tags: , , , , ,

The winds of change bring no relief

At times they’re cruel, not often brief

What is it that we’re meant to learn

Or how address our next concern ?

Our nation flounders all alone

For what great sin must we atone,

The sadness of our lives may be

That we remain no longer free !

 

 

 

 

FAITH PERSISTS ( 2016 ) 2016/08/21

The seasons end is drawing near

Before you notice winter’s here

And once again the snow will call

When autumn leaves no longer fall.

Now life is  really much the same

For spring and summer start the game

Enjoy the view as colors fade

From bright sunlight to winter’s shade.

Sometimes it seems in life we lose

The power we had to pick or choose

Among those choices that exist

Believe our faith in God persists !

 

 

 

 

 

THE ONE I TRUST ( 2016 ) 2016/08/14

Filed under: POEMS.....THOUGHTS.....MEMORIES — bogdanosclaire @ 3:36 am
Tags: , , , , ,

I left my heart on foreign shore

So long ago, forevermore

Through all these years I’ve not forgot

All of those dreams that lingered not.

I turned my face to other deeds

And sacrificed to fill life’s needs

To all my values I’ve been true

My faith is strong and patient too.

While I believe my course is just

I’ve found that God’s the one I trust !

 

 

 

GOD IS THERE ( 2016 ) 2016/06/14

Filed under: POEMS.....THOUGHTS.....MEMORIES — bogdanosclaire @ 3:31 am
Tags: , , , ,

I believe that life has levels of

Concern and care, devotion and love

They are with us for a lifetime long

And range from the meek to ever strong.

Perhaps some require a stouter voice

To channel the option of their choice

One must not accept that all is lost

Or believe that failure is the cost,

Stand up and shout or cheer if you will

And know that your God is with you still !

 

 

DO THE BEST ( 2016 ) 2016/02/18

Days are flying like leaves in a storm

All tempest tossed so lost and forlorn

The winds of time move across the land

Like an army under God’s command.

Is anyone sure that we’re not alone

Or which role to assume on our own

How foolish it is to thump on our chest

It is but God who will do the best !

 

TO FLY ( 2016 ) 2016/02/14

Filed under: POEMS.....THOUGHTS.....MEMORIES — bogdanosclaire @ 2:04 am
Tags: , , , , ,

Quite clear to see

It’s only me

Lost and confused

Not much amused.

No will to fight

Far left or right

Great passion there

Full of despair.

A lonesome place

One dare not face

Too late to try

By chance to fly !
