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 !

Our aims got tangled and went adrift

The spirit’s drowning and needs a lift

While our dreams have somehow gone astray

Pray this confusion soon melts away.

At the root of all that we believe

And a part of ideas we conceive

May the love of God instill great peace

And from life’s distress grant all release !

There is a lesson I have learned

That all misfortune is not earned

And oftentimes is ill advised

By those who have been compromised.

Tis now the time for all to rise

And beg the  Power of the skies

To ease the pain and teach us ways

To seek fulfillment in our days !

What power on this earth enslaves

Their people from each birth to graves,

What ancient curse now here exists

With strengths increased and still persists ?

Oh Lamb of God when will it cease

How long must we thirst for Your peace,

Though blind we are and bullied too

Our faith remains steadfast and true !

 

THE GIFTS ( 2013 ) 2013/10/20

The springtime gales that fill the sails of vessels out at sea

And bring the rain that nourishes the farmlands that is free,

Summer winds that fill the air with odors of faint perfume

The breath of ocean breezes blowing cross a sunlit room,

How wild the call of autumn rolls complete with heavy scents

Of chimneys belching forth the smoke from warm hearthfires intense

The winter storm that carries Mother Natures ice cold sleet

Staccato sounds ring all around like heavy crunching feet,

These are the gifts that God has wrought to bring us happiness

And to our lives has added all the blessings we possess.

We thank you God and go our way believing that we’ll earn

Our daily bread, our prayers are said awaiting our new turn.
