Have you e’er pondered  over  angel  wings

How they  could get caught in our  worldly things

Such as  doors, windows and archways or screens

Or limbs of trees or in branches of greens ?

How do they manage to dress up each day

Looking so sweet in angelic display

I wonder if they wear stockings or boots

Do they prefer eating  ice cream  or fruits ?

Isn’t it strange that we know nothing more

Of where they’ve been until now and before

I’d sure like to find  some  lessons to use

To help me decide which pathway to choose !

Oh blessed Lord, come live with me

Invade my heart eternally

Help me to keep my life in line

And with your aid, I will be fine.

Oh Lord God, hear my simple plea

There is no place I’d rather be

Than safe with You each day to rise

Forever more in Paradise !

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 !
