IN THE BEGINNING ( 2020 ) 2020/02/03

Whenever  I think  of the  past

And  ships that  skimmed  o’er  oceans vast

They  traversed  round the world they knew

Adventurous,  historic  too.

Oh  how I wish  that I had known

This  world  before it was  all  grown

Think  what a hoot  it might  have  been

To  be there when  it did  begin !

This life is full of mix and match

Grab anything that you can catch

Hold on  because you never know

What  opportunities  will  show.

It  may not  seem to  be enough

Though often when the going’s tough

There  is a lesson we  need learn

That each of us must  wait our turn !

 

ADVENTURES ( 2019 ) 2019/07/29

Can you see the clouds all drifting by

While summer days, they do swiftly fly

The wings of time quickly fade away

Leaving shadows of lost yesterday

With those memories we shall recall

We have entered into shades of fall.

Past the windows of the mind we’ll see

Sweet beginnings of our victory

As the church bells toll for me and you

And the adventures we have been through

We shall face  tomorrow hand in hand

Prepared to enter Forever Land !

 

 

SIMPLE BEAUTY ( 2019 ) 2019/06/01

There is a simple beauty

In all that one ought to see

This world that’s wrapt about me

Exudes great alacrity

With every single instance

Of my entire existence

I have tried to understand

With the wisdom here at hand

An adventure to expand

All so elegant and grand

This monment full of pleasure

In life for all to measure !

 

I HEAR THE SOUNDS ( 2018 ) 2018/10/08

I feel the fury of the wind

That keeps on squealing, ” let me in ”

I hear the angry sounds that shout

I do not know what it’s about,

But I am not some trembling vine

Who operates without a spine

I’ve been around the block too long

You’ll note that I’m not weak but strong !

 

 

 

BRAND NEW START ( 2018 ) 2018/07/10

There are these words that fill my heart

And bring each day a brand new start

With joy and love and common good

Celebrating life as we should.

Oh blessed Lord teach us to find

A better way to help unwind

Confusion and the sadness of

A world that is devoid of love !

 

SCHEME AND DREAM ( 2018 ) 2018/04/25

Oh Santa Claus, dear Santa Claus

This is the wrong time of the year

However, I need ask because

Too soon the holidays are here.

We get so very bothered now

Just trying to keep up with life

It’s slipt away, I don’t know how

Between our courage and our strife.

I’d like to think that you and I

Perhaps could share the central theme

While knowing one day all shall die

Each needs accept both scheme and dream !

 

THE CLARION’S CALL ( 2017 ) 2017/05/31

We shall not run out of values at stake

That is an action that we will not take

For the facts are what this is all about

Either spoken gently or with a shout,

Only time can tell as each day rolls on

There is this thought that we depend upon.

When the winter’s young and the cold is new

We own the courage to make this come true

That as we age and experience mounts

There is the moment when true wisdom counts.

You may do your best making fools of all,

But who will stand at last clarion’s call ?

 

 

 

NOUGHT TO SAY ( 2017 ) 2017/05/25

There was a tree that I had seen

Quite lush and large and oh so green

When I was young and not so tall

The tree had barely grown at all.

I’ve watched it age through all the years

Some good, some bad, some full of fears

But always spreading out each limb

As if in thanks offered to Him.

The tree is old, well I am too

If truth be told, we’ve shared a view

Times are long past, we’ve had our day

So like that tree nought left to say !

 

THIS PLEASURE ( 2017 ) 2017/05/17

Once was a killer whale I saw afloat

He was much larger than a fishing boat.

Oh such a friendly whale I’ve never met

He’d roll and dive as close as he could get

And splattered ocean water everywhere

Upon the face and hands and in one’s hair.

Oh what a thrill I’ve had to watch him swim

And how I dreamt that I could splash with him,

But whales are far too big to play with me

Besides they live in waters deep asea.

I think that I shall have to be content

Thank God that You to me this pleasure sent !

There’s much to be said for a life well spent

More to be taught from what the years have lent !

 

NOSTALGIA ( 2016 ) 2016/07/29

Oh that yearning for times long past

Those youthful days that did not last

Where all our dreams began as hope

To bear no limits in their scope

For youth is that which knows no fear

Of obstacles both far and near.

Yet all too soon those days must pass

Like shadows in life’s looking glass

While time alone may leave its marks

As former youth on age embarks

There face anew another day

To pack their former life away !

 

JOURNEY ENDS ( 2016 ) 2016/07/09

I’ve lived my life, its time has come

Some times were bad, some others fun

I’ve lived in shadows and in sun

The good, the bad, done and undone.

And now tis time to make amends

To heal the fences, speak with friends

We tarry on this road that bends

Until too soon our journey ends !

 

THE LIGHT OF WISDOM ( 2015 ) 2015/11/27

There is a light that burns so bright

Its luminescence floods the night

It is the light that knowledge brings

Into our lives where freedom rings.

The song we hear is incomplete

Its notes sing out both clear and sweet

All promising that we shall learn

How to address one great concern.

Our safety lies within that glow

Where wisdom’s power does constant grow

Else who is left to keep the lights

Forever burning through our nights ?

 

 

MOVE ON ( 2015 ) 2015/06/11

To those days that were and are no more

With youth and beauty flown out the door

To leave us dreaming what used to be

When times were young and our lives carefree.

Oh to relive those elusive days

Where we thrived on love and hope and praise

Since all’s now past, chances diminished

The road is done, we’re almost finished !

 

TIN SOLDIERS ( 2015 ) 2015/03/06

I do remember very well

Tin soldiers and the tales they tell

So much of my own childhood play

Was spent imagining their day.

While soldiering was all the style

Accomplishments were well worthwhile

Real soldiers now make us take note

For soldiering can change the vote !

Most of our children have grown old

Served their nation with valor bold

The wars have come and slipt away

As mothers’ tears were in the way.

There is a lesson we need teach

The road to peace is in our reach

Tin soldiers are no longer seen

There’s Army, Navy and Marines !

 

THE CIRCLE ( 2014 ) 2014/03/15

Life is one living circle awaiting God’s commands

I do not know the reason it shrinks or it expands

But I know that we are here serving at His leisure

Whether it results in our pain or simple pleasure,

The happy thought we exist is an indication

He cares and watches all deeds in anticipation !

 

WIRELESS ( 2013 ) 2013/12/08

It pleases me to think that I

Can spread my wings and to you fly

Across the oceans great expanse

Perhaps to take another chance

To make new friends and socialize

In this strange world each occupies.

These  miracles that we have found

Did change our lives and still astound

Where will they lead us in the end

Beyond the keeping of a friend ?

These are the dreams that we’ve forgot

They’ll linger long or tarry not

Because we are all that we’ve got

This is our goal, our life, our lot !
