The sky is full of  bits of cloud

With some that  fairly shout aloud

They gather with each wind that blows

In shapes both  recognized or posed.

So like  an army  on the move

That does its best to heav’n improve

And  paints us  pictures way up high

To keep  us focused  on God’s sky !

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 !

Oh how I wish that I might spy

A comet streaking cross the sky

Or sight a rainbow shining through

When clouds appear misted with dew.

I want to know which way to go

As evening stars commence their show

Or what it takes to reach the moon

By rocket ship or space balloon.

How wonderful this world would be

If seen  with eyes of fantasy !

Tis true, tis true, all heaven knows

There is a feeling, grows and grows

We need You Lord, the night blows bold

Tis sad to think,  but youth gets old.

They too must trod this selfsame road

Perhaps bearing a greater load

Remember that each breath we take

Has many varied paths at stake.

Make sure each step is firmly gripped

Without a chance, footings have slipped

Take care secure one true regard

Think safety and keep  up your guard !

 

 

 

A PUZZLE ( 2018 ) 2018/08/20

Have you wondered what clouds must see

While floating o’erhead lazily

And what about the mountain’s heighths

With all its smells and sound delights ?

Do you believe that clouds can tell

If all below are doing well

Or when to rain or sail away

Perhaps return another day ?

God’s world is huge and ever wide

What do you think He keeps inside,

Seems it’s a deep dark mystery

A puzzle for eternity ?

 

AMONGST THE LIES ( 2018 ) 2018/04/21

When I look up into the sky

So full of creatures that do fly

Where images that catch my eye

May mix with clouds here passing by.

Imagination can’t restore

What it is we are searching for

That special something most adore

A secret gift behind each door.

The world is full of guile and guise

Beneath the sea, above the skies

We live in times of great disguise

Truth is hidden amongst the lies !

 

OUR REMEMBER WHEN ( 2017 ) 2017/11/25

Oh Santa Claus, dear Santa Claus

I’m writing to you just because

Christmas is coming round the bend

It’s time to share it with a friend

Though not so simple as it seems

As Christmas nears it fosters dreams.

It is a season to feel young

With Yuletide carols to be sung

It would be nice if we’d return

To days when candles would be burned

When children small were told the tales

Of magic sleighs that had no sails.

 

The reindeer were believed to fly

Across the reaches of the sky

But let’s pretend a moment more

That elves may work in Santa’s store

It’s true I’ve never seen an elf

Except ceramic on a shelf.

Well never mind, this too shall pass

Like Alice through her looking glass

Until next year, same time, same place

Anticipating your embrace

I pray I’m not too old by then

Forgetting our remember when !

 

ISN’T IT WONDERFUL TO SEE WITH THE HEART OF A CHILD ?
