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 !

Good morning Lord, this is another day

With all new miracles spreading our way

Among the olden dreams we still expect

Like fantasies perchance that we reject

Who knows what favor God will deign to show

Let’s give it time to spread and shed and grow !


OUTCOME IS A DREAM ( 2018 ) 2018/03/24

Today I trudged along the road

While packing quite a bulky load

My spirit crushed by all the stress

My soul in pain, under duress.

I wish I knew what I should do

To help myself and see this through

At times I feel the battle’s lost

Since I can’t count the total cost

I’ll keep on trying to hold fast

This effort will not be my last

Since God and me are like a team

Let’s pray the outcome is a dream !

Now through it all, the thick and thin

You’ve always known to count me in

I stand with God, I always will

Until this heart of mine lies still !

There is  a thought that comes to mind,

Beyond this place what shall I find

A world that’s known to God alone

Where all our sins have been atoned,

One path that leads to peace at last

Our worldliness is in the past

Here gentle lamb and lion lay

Close side by side, day after day !

On a lonely road in an empty place

When the bugle calls and a trumpet plays

And the wild wind blows o’er deserted plain

It stirs an old heart to revive again !


THE SYCAMORE ( 2018 ) 2018/03/01

My eyes observe huge sycamores entwined

Where branches, crowded, up to heaven wind

Quite barren now of leaves or other frill

This vision of the sky gives me a chill

There rises through that mass of jumbled limbs

A dazzle of congested psalms and whims.

I’ve never seen such turns and twists before

Wherein my memory could ever store

Massive as all these scattered arms may be

Seems they stretch out to touch infinity !

Not long ago in this same place

The last time that I saw her face,

Today’s the day that I recall

The darkness of death’s knell did fall.

How sad that we shall never greet

Or hug and kiss when e’er we meet

I am so sorry that you’ve gone

We’ll catchup soon, it won’t be long !
