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 !

Sometimes the world seems upside down

Sure makes it hard to get around

Sometimes we notice small mistakes

Let’s fix it fast before it breaks

Sometimes we find we’re not that smart

But we possess a giant heart !

Where the moon comes over the mountain

And the stars disappear in the sea

There’s a statue rains in a fountain

In a special place they call Trevi.

In the past I have been there often

It’s such a heavenly  place to be

As I remember how hearts soften

And the day I’ll return there to see !

 

GOD’S COMFORT AND GRACE ( 2018 ) 2018/10/16

We are walking our way back to God

O’er a path that’s rocky and oft hard

In a manner that would uphill wind

What e’er this discovery may find.

On a foreign road unknown and strange

We’ve tackled a job due for a change

Picking up the pieces of broken hearts

While trying to find all the lost parts.

It’s a worthwhile service that we’ve found

Attempting to get our lives unbound

Praying to reach a much finer place

Therein receive God’s comfort and grace !

 

 

THE RUNNER ( 2018 ) 2018/09/06

With all her hair piled on her head

Her cheeks so pink, her lips true red

Her running shorts cut at the thigh

With measured trot while passing by.

 

She is a picture of content

Angelic smile from heaven sent

As daily I observe her pass

From my front window’s pane of glass.

 

Her running shoes and steady pace

Are ne’er distracted by each race

She’s happy jogging every street

Controling life while on her feet !

 

 

THE SYCAMORE ( 2018 ) 2018/03/01

My eyes observe huge sycamores entwined

Where branches, crowded, up to heaven wind

Quite barren now of leaves or other frill

This vision of the sky gives me a chill

There rises through that mass of jumbled limbs

A dazzle of congested psalms and whims.

I’ve never seen such turns and twists before

Wherein my memory could ever store

Massive as all these scattered arms may be

Seems they stretch out to touch infinity !

 

 

SHARE A SMILE ( 2016 ) 2016/07/03

The sadness of this life I see

Is absence of one thing that’s free

No matter where it is I’m at

The world about is sad and flat.

Those faces that are all around

Are full of darkness or a frown

The answer’s simple and worthwhile

How lovely if they’d share a smile !
