HELP FOR STORMY DAYS ( 2018 ) 2018/08/12

Dark storm clouds gather up on high

While shafts of light shoot cross the sky

The rain it tumults to the ground

And fills each crevice to be found.

The thunder and the lightning roar

As darkness creeps inside the door

The streets are full of glistening streams

That flow forever, so it seems.

All lives encounter stormy days

Both cold or sad in countless ways

With this exception each may take

God helps us up before we break !

I spy the remnants of my life

Surviving all its stress and strife

I sense the depth of my defense

While reaching out for recompense.

Where are the goals I thought I had

That separate good from the bad,

When will I learn to use my time

In aiding those who dare to climb ?

I find myself caught in the net

That seems to have no exit yet

Please show me, Lord the way to go

To help our lives and values grow !

 

 

DARLING CHILD ( 2018 ) 2018/07/12

Lord, You’re in charge of wrong and right

The sun by day, the stars by night

The winds that blow, the rains that fall

The light and dark, life overall.

You are the wisdom and the brains

The loss that memory retains

With dreams that we’re all guilty of

When all are young or bold in love.

The changes come, the changes go

Time flashes by the more you know

As God and all the angels smile

Because each is His darling child !

 

 

 

 

CRIMSON PLUMES ( 2018 ) 2018/05/26

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 !

 

 

IF WINTER COMES ( 2017 ) 2017/12/11

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 !
