GOOD NIGHT ( 2020 ) 2020/05/31

Slowly the gathering dusk fills each hall

As shades of eventide begin night’s call

The darkness moves forward to welcome night

As heavy shadows cower every light.

There’s a sound in the passage you can hear

The echo of shuffles seeming so clear

With a cumbersome yawn, fall into bed

And pull all your covers over your head !

 

THANK YOU ( 2020 ) 2020/05/20

Each day begins with shades of gray

Before sky blue decides to stay

The clouds are neat all in a row

They start to gather, come and go

And fill the heavens with their fluff

We never seem to get enough.

Oh how I wish that I might see

Angels hop-scotching over me

I’d laugh and giggle right out loud

I do believe we’d have a crowd.

But just for now I promise you

I’d offer God a huge ” thank You ” !

Angels  from heaven  are tapping  on my door

I’m  not  upset  cause  I’ve heard  them tap  before

I  comprehend their  job  and  what must be done

I  sure could  use  hands on   with  some help for fun !

 

SNOW FREE ( 2020 ) 2020/03/03

The  winter winds  blow far and  near

I  hear the  sounds upon my ear

Windows  rattle,  panes gather frost

I  hope my  woolies won’t get lost.

The  icy branches  crackle so

Beware  to those who pass  below

The  limbs of trees all striking  bare

Does  leave  no warmth for all to share.

Oh  winter,  have you  come to stay

I’m  wishing  that you’ll go away

With  all  the troubles  that we see

Let’s  pray that  we remain snow  free !

 

 

 

ASK IT IN ( 2020 ) 2020/02/26

Can  you hear the  rain as it pelts down

Raining  so hard  all the worms may drown

Midst  streams of water  hitting the ground

Like  rivers pushing the leaves around ?

Oh,  what a day that today  has been

With  rain pouring down  windows and trim

There’s  a storm outside  we can’t let in

Lest  we raise the  sash to ask it in !

 

 

DISPARITY ( 2020 ) 2020/02/22

Oh  little cat with  four white boots

It’s  clear to see, we’re in  cahoots

Together you and I  will be

Two  partners  in  disparity.

Your  coat of striped grey’s thick and bright

Your neck  cowl is  so  furry white

Where do you go  when you leave here

Is  it too  far or  really  near

What will  you do when  fall has  done

And winter cold  too soon  has come ?

 

I’ll  miss you if you  go away

What  can  I do  to make you  stay

I’m  trying hard  to  comprehend

I’d  like our  friendship  not to  end !

 

 

WHATEVER PLEASES ME ( 2020 ) 2020/02/07

Oh  how I wish  that I might  be

An  apple on an  apple  tree

Or  strawberries  upon a plate

With  breakfast served by half past eight.

Perhaps a glass of  orange juice

Or  portion  of vanilla  mousse

Oh  how much fun  that  it would be

To  eat  whatever  pleases  me.

Now cookies,  cake  and things  like that

Go  pretty  far to add  some  fat

So  I’ll  abstain  best as I  can

But  I refuse to  give  up  flan !

 

GOD’S FINGER ( 2020 ) 2020/02/04

Life  dishes out  a lot of stuff

Before  too long  we’ve  had enough

The  tides of time,  sometimes too strong

Will  somehow carry  us along

To  events we have  never seen

Or  places  we have never been

I  believe  all  peace doth linger

At  the behest  of God’s  finger !

 

 

 

BUNDLED UP ( 2020 ) 2020/01/09

Here  I am bundled  up to the chin

While  the north wind  struggles to slip in

The  air is so cold,  it feels  like ice

Thank  God my boots  are so warm and nice.

I’m  not too fond  of old winter’s  chill

And  admit  it brings me  little thrill

I  pray we’ll  make it  straight  through to  spring

When  the world  around begins  to sing

And  all of life  does  rebirth anew

With  both  heart and soul  and  voices too

Let  us take  our  joy  where e’er  we may

And  live to  complain  another day !

 

 

CONSISTENCY ( 2019 ) 2019/12/22

Can  you hear winter winds break through the trees

With  frozen breath and chill,  an instant freeze ?

I hear the crackling ice,  it falls away

Reminds us  weather changes day by day,

It  sort of  vacillates and jumps about

Exposing  purpose,  choice,  free will  and doubt.

So let us now  our precious  chances take

Pray  God  we’ve no  more branches  left to break !

 

 

A PERFECT FIT ( 2019 ) 2019/12/10

I  waken to the  light  outside

It’s  pale and dull,  on the flat side

The  sun’s smile  has been hid away

By clouds above,  some sad and  grey.

Tomorrow  brings a better  chance

Of  love and joy  mixed with romance,

Our  lives are full of  ups and downs

With happy  smiles and  miles of frowns.

Let’s  spice it up,  just  for a bit

Perhaps,   we’ll  find  a perfect  fit !

 

 

 

 

MY CHOICE ( 2019 ) 2019/12/01

The  winter chill is  moving in

It’s  time to  take it  on the  chin

Unpack  your warmest   set  of clothes

Including  scarf,  gloves,  hat and hose.

Your  best  wool sweater  underneath

And  don’t forget the  holly  wreath

I  spy the  frost on  every bough

The  weather’s  truly  colder now.

Could   use   the warmth  that threatens all

As  per  our  latest  know- it- all

Somehow  I  think it is  a ruse

And  nothing  close to  what I ‘d choose !

 

 

 

 

EVERYTHING ENDS WITH A KISS ( 2019 ) 2019/11/27

My  life is strained and hard to bear

Too  many stories left to share

A   little up,   a  little down

A  happy smile,  a tiny frown.

Some  days are great and others sad

As  life is full of  good and bad

Tears  are there  in the midst  of bliss

Where  everything  ends with a kiss !

 

 

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!

 

 

 

 

GO WITH YOUR HEART ( 2019 ) 2019/10/01

Filed under: POEMS.....THOUGHTS.....MEMORIES — bogdanosclaire @ 5:14 am
Tags: , , , , ,

Long time ago, I remember well

There was a tale the old timers tell

Of a man  who rode this way one day

Just  passing through not meaning to stay

When a shy young beauty he did see

A sweet  image for his fantasy.

Well the story goes, they got on great

While the rest of it was left to fate

The two young folks seemed to fall in love

Quite like the wish each was  dreaming of

Remember when love has a good start

Most times it pays to follow the heart !

 

 

 

 

CALAMITY IS HERE ( 2019 ) 2019/09/22

Well  here we are at God’s front door

What is it  we are  waiting  for

An  invitation  to come in

A smile, a kiss, a foolish grin ?

We’ve  not much time,  let’s hurry up

And place  our futures  in  His cup

We  cannot  fail to  understand

Calamity  is  close at  hand.

The world  is crumbling  as we wait

For  destiny to  crash  this gate

Oh,  Lord above,  do heed our  plea

Open  our eyes  and set us free !

Have you e’er pondered  over  angel  wings

How they  could get caught in our  worldly things

Such as  doors, windows and archways or screens

Or limbs of trees or in branches of greens ?

How do they manage to dress up each day

Looking so sweet in angelic display

I wonder if they wear stockings or boots

Do they prefer eating  ice cream  or fruits ?

Isn’t it strange that we know nothing more

Of where they’ve been until now and before

I’d sure like to find  some  lessons to use

To help me decide which pathway to choose !

 

HOW MUCH I CARE ( 2019 ) 2019/07/20

A little bit of humor,  her smile to show she’d dare

The sound of laughter on our ears floating in the air

A tiny  piece of heaven for  every one to share

Today’s my mother’s birthday and oh, how much I care !

 

THE GOOD FAIRY ( 2019 ) 2019/07/13

If I were high up in the sky

What is it that my eyes would spy

Lots of rooftops affording space

To pigeons, gulls, all birds apace

With other havens to be found

Where they are safer than on ground.

I am so glad to be alive

And able to help birds survive

Supplying all those old stale buns,

Kitchen scraps along with bread crumbs

Tis how it is I’m known to be

Bird feeder and their good fairy !

 

 

EVERYTHING SHE SAID ( 2019 ) 2019/05/11

Tags: , , , , ,

Dear Lord, I’m glad that you are there

To hear my ever constant prayer

My mother told me long ago

That when I asked, take care to know

Because You answer each request

With what You deem to be the best

The answer will be “yes” or “no”,

“Wait for a little while or so”

“Or give us something else instead”

That covers everything she said !

 

AMEN !

 

 

 

 

SATAN’S MOB ( 2019 ) 2019/04/30

There is this silence that I hear

It rests so peaceful on my ear

My heart is quiet, all’s at rest

I find this part of day the best

The streets’ deserted, all is calm

Please welcome in the morning’s charm.

Another day, another chance

To perhaps take a second glance

Discover what the world needs now

Let’s do some good, some way, somehow

For if we don’t, who’ll fill the job

Some volunteer from Satan’s mob ?

When you look around what do you see

An exciting world that works for free

The sun that shines and a moon that glows

A tingling sensation, head to toes

With the awareness of who we are

And why we are ruled by one bright star

The miracle is we cling to earth

And treasure the pull for all we’re worth !

 

PIECE OF CAKE ( 2019 ) 2019/03/26

For God and Country, so it goes

How does it end, seems no one knows

We are a nation thus conceived

Of all the values we believed

We are a country young at heart

In which each one must play a part.

We can’t pretend that we are free

It must be with great certainty

The task at hand is guaranteed

To make us strong and to succeed

We shall not fail nor will we break

We’ll stay the course, God’s piece of cake !

 

THE JOYS OF SPRING ( 2019 ) 2019/03/19

The wind, it whispers in the breeze

And blows its breath into the trees

It sings a song of joyousness

That’s gathered in the robin’s breast.

The mockingbird sounds crisp and curt

He does not wish a songbird hurt

And mimics all he can,  but still

He stops short of the whip-poor-will,

You’ll hear the chorus of each bird

It is the best I’ve ever heard !

 

 

VALENTINE TEXT ( 2019 ) 2019/02/13

Today’s the day for hearts and flowers

Along with Cupid’s finest hours

You’ll get a posey, two or three

And have a pleasant day, you’ll see.

Saint Valentine has long been gone

Replaced by Walmart’s gift coupon

Tis silly thus to celebrate

If all is not to be first rate.

Let’s wait to learn what will come next

And pray it’s not some silly text !

 

HAPPINESS IS UP TO YOU ( 2019 ) 2019/01/23

Oh, how I wish that I had been

The apple on old Adam’s tree

I’d shake my leaves and tuck them in

To keep his idle hands off me.

I’d tell him not to take a bite

Before the troubles could begin

When he and Eve, out of some spite

Took Satan’s dare right on the chin.

Oh, sad the day man was denied,

Remembering in all you do

That God to us has never lied

Your happiness is up to you !

 

 

IF IT FITS ( 2019 ) 2019/01/06

The world outside is crass and cold

The air inside, both brash and bold

And takes time getting used to it

If we expect our lives to fit

Let’s make the best of what we’ve got

No matter if it fits or not !

 

LIFE WHIZZES BY ( 2018 ) 2018/12/24

I was a girl not long ago

Life whizzes by before you know

Today I’ve found I’m getting old

And really  suffer from the cold !

My sight’s okay,  bit fuzzy now

I see myself as the last bough

And at this stage I truly need

A hint of love, a little heed !

How quickly do the days fly by

Sometimes there is a need  to cry,

Or pause the clock to take a break

There’s just too much  of life at stake !
