Sometimes I can’t help remembering

My great grandma’s house in early spring

Oh such joy those old visions bear

Of beaches, sand and the salty air.

The wonderment of childhood may be

The remembrance of past memory

And lifestyles that have all gone astray

With the pleasantries of yesterday.

I wish that I could capture the time

Instead of watch as our lives decline

So sad, dear Lord, what was meant to be

Got lost in this new posterity !

The sun, it filters through the leaves

Its shadows bouncing off the eaves

Upon the rooftops round about

Seagulls and pigeons thawing out.

The frosty chill of early morn

Gives rise to wishes yet unborn

That men and nature be discreet

Learn how to share, reject defeat !

 

 

THIS OR THAT ( 2017 ) 2017/06/03

There’s often a thought that I have had

That life’s not clearly all good or bad

And sometimes trauma gets in the way

Like visions we’ve had that go astray.

Tis foolish to think we’re of one mind

For this world consists of every kind

The short and tall or the lean and fat

Those who prefer either this or that,

Only time will tell where all this ends

We can be enemies or make friends !

 

YOUR CHOICE ( 2016 ) 2016/08/27

While in the land of make believe

Where fallen dreams perhaps collide,

When all the plans that you conceive

In shadows dim do there abide

Just stand erect and truth receive

Or from your future choose to hide !

 

 

IF WE FALL ( 2016 ) 2016/06/25

The dark descends upon my soul

I query if I’ve met my goal

I cannot know until the end

If I have been both foe and friend.

For in my passion I have found

At times we all may run aground

I never meant to lose my way

And I have nothing more to say,

Except that God is always there

In peace or war or bleak despair

And pray His grace be with us all

If we survive or if we fall !

The fog slips in and hugs the ground

The air is still there’s ne’er a sound

I feel the damp inside my bones

My feet can’t grasp the slipp’ry stones.

I sense the chill invade my space

Oh how I need escape this place,

Before my mind grows dim and old

And all I’ve known wanes dread and cold !

 

To Edward Pavlovich, an old friend who painted

my portrait in 1951,  I remember you ! Thanks !

 

 

 

HOME ( 2016 ) 2016/03/11

Now I have traveled long and far

By foot and train and hired car

I’ve searched across the world’s domain

By boat and mule and aeroplane

Where’er I’ve gone it’s clear to see

That home is still the place to be !
