There is a faint sound that I hear

It keeps repeating in my ear

Is it a clock  ticking away

Counting the minutes of each day ?

If I were smart then I would find

Some way to make all time unwind

So I might salvage years to keep

Those that I love safe from last sleep !

 

 

 

 

REALITY ( 2016 ) 2016/06/16

Repeated for hundreds of years or more amongst ourselves

Are stories of the jinn and little folk, fairies and elves

Reminding us that the mystery of life is just that

Charming and enchanted tales recovered from life’s magic hat

Teaching us morals and lessons of what our lives could be

Without losing attachment to our God’s reality !

 

A SPECIAL HORSE ( 2016 ) 2016/05/24

Sometimes I wish I had a horse

Not one who races on the course

But wooden, painted, made by hand

By skilled craftsmen whose work is grand.

Carousel horses can be smart

Carved and sculpted right from the heart

With pony tail that flicks and flies

Plus eyelashes o’er bright glass eyes.

Oh what a thrill that it would be

To ride that swift painted pony,

I dream that one day I may find

That special horse my mind combined !

There are those days I wish that I

Could clip-on wings and learn to fly

Think how much fun that task would be

To soar across both land and sea.

I’d spread my wings like eagles bold

And head on south in winter’s cold

There would not be a need to pack

I’d wear a knapsack on my back.

That sure might be a funny sight

One old grandma on her first flight !

 

CHILDHOOD’S END ( 2016 ) 2016/03/20

Who knows where we’re going or where we’ve been

“Not I”, said the top who began to spin

While the jacks and the ball started to play

The electric clock tried to run away.

As the toys in the playroom danced about

Tin soldiers awoke and started to shout

Oh such fun it was to play let’s pretend

So sorry childhood must come to an end !

 

CELEBRATION ( 2015 ) 2015/12/16

My thoughts do turn to silly things

Like hugs and kisses and brass rings

Like elephants and tiger eyes

A world chock full of wild surprise

A heart that’s packed with joy and peace

And music that will never cease.

Ballet shoes made of satin white

That keep on dancing through the night,

The love of God and angels sweet

Who choose to walk with unclad feet

Chocolates and marshmallows too

To help our sweetest dreams come true !

 

LOOKING GLASS ( 2015 ) 2015/11/13

I feel the mist that covers all

While winding through the shades of fall

Seems life survives beneath this tent

Of autumn days that God has sent.

The leaves that fly along the street

Now dog the foosteps of our feet,

Ambitious winds that heave and sigh

Impatient now await goodbye.

The seasons come, the seasons go

This is the pattern that we know

So little changes as we pass

Our lives before God’s looking glass !
