In the distant fields, row on row

Where all the stalwart poppies grow

God’s crimson plumes wave in the breeze

Their masses reaching to the trees

Across the hills and o’er the plains

With multitudes of mounting aims,

Who’s heard the call both loud and clear

And knows the day of judgement’s near ?

 

THE FUTURE’S DEAD ( 2018 ) 2018/02/09

There was a time we all felt good

The way united people should

We worked together like a pack

I prayed we’d get our mojo back

But all this stress and anger too

Is something that we must pass through

I see no clear path straight ahead

Just seems as though the future’s dead !

 

INCONVENIENCE ( 2017 ) 2017/12/28

An icy sleet covers the ground

There’s no safe footing to be found

The winter’s menu slowly grows

Extending to some heavy snows

Alas this season seems to be

Arriving inconveniently !

The wind, it whips around the bend

How long before the winter’s end

The snow, the sleet, the icy road

That soon becomes a heavy load

But when the elements do flee

The spring arrives to comfort me.

I’d like to greet another day

With fragrant blossoms on the way

There is a line I can’t ignore

I’ve heard so many times before

If winter comes, it’s true you’ll find

That spring is never far behind !

 

 

 

NOT OUR FAULT ( 2017 ) 2017/12/08

Seems that our lives are changing day by day

While fleeting years keep getting in the way

They appear to have a mission or two

Since we are pressed for time, what shall we do ?

As the days get shorter and time speeds by

Too much to remember, harder to try

All of our efforts will keep us awake

Along with those chances we often take.

There’s a point in time when we’ll have to halt

Please understand this, it won’t be our fault !

 

 

LIFE’S LAST SLEEP ( 2017 ) 2017/12/05

There’s been so many friends along the way

That have gotten lost or have gone astray

While their faces blur and the names escape

Memories get caught in the charged landscape !

As the past rolls by and the time moves on

I will wait here like an old mastodon

In a silence that I would like to keep

Until I close my eyes in life’s last sleep !

 

 

 

YOU WILL BE THERE ( 2017 ) 2017/07/06

Of late the days all seem to fly

As leaves of time keep flashing by

There is so little I can grasp

I need a halt to take a gasp.

Sometimes I’m deaf and sometimes blind

I’m never sure what I shall find

How can my life just melt away

Without my having any say ?

I trust You Lord and know You care

That in my pain You will be there !
