A  tiny bit of heaven grows

In  secret places no one knows

Sometimes  a corner near a hedge

Or closeby at the garden’s edge

Under  a pine tree  by the fence

With smell of violets intense.

Around  a tree stump you can see

Peat  moss plays host to wild daisy

The  dandelions tramp all about

While peonies  their color flout,

Oh  such a sight for all to see

And  witness as God’s litany !

The  time for  dreaming is now done

Let’s  raise our glasses  one by one

To  give a toast and pledge  that we

Shall  make it to  eternity !

Oh  life that  was and  is no more

Has  tiptoed softly  out the  door

And  just as  peaceful  laid  to rest

Amidst  the  ages mongst  the best !

 

NO ALARM ( 2019 ) 2019/10/02

I  have never found myself depressed

Tis  like facing the world  half-dressed

I  have never understood the term

But  I  suppose I will have to learn.

A  foolish thought that I cannot shake

Oh days to come,  please give me a break

I  can’t  imagine time that is lost

As an exception,  what is the cost ?

I  pledge today I  shall do my best

To  laugh and smile  and pass every test

To keep my spirits  pleasant  and charmed

Present  no reason  to be alarmed!

The sky is blue  without a cloud

Hear all the birds  chirp out aloud

The air is fresh  and clearly sweet

There are no strangers  on the street,

A subtle breeze  blows all around

The leaves are  drifting to the ground

There is much  beauty  all may see

In  nature’s great  serenity  !

 

 

 

BLINKING LIGHTS ( 2019 ) 2019/09/07

I watch the stars fade in and out

So patiently,  night after night

And wonder why they’re so devout

And why they shine so clear and bright.

Sometimes I fear that cannot last

For even stars fall out of sight

Oh,  what an image they have cast

With their eternal  blinking light !

I used to think that I was strong

And knew therewith where I belonged

How sad to learn fate flew away

Ne’er to return e’er aft that day.

So long ago, that distant past

How foolish to believe t’would last

For dreams will keep us warm at night

But vanish with the morning light !
