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 !

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

WHERE WARMTH IS FREE ( 2019 ) 2019/11/13

The  cold slips in beneath the door

And  shimmies fast across the floor

Leaving  behind a lasting chill

As  icy  fingers  often will.

No  matter where it is I go

I  am no fan of frost or  snow

And wish I  had a  magic wand

To  shoo the cold  to places yon

What bliss  t’would be to bide  somewhere

That  warmth is  free and  everywhere  !

 

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!

 

 

 

 

SERENITY ( 2019 ) 2019/09/30

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 !

 

 

GIANT HEART ( 2019 ) 2019/04/13

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 !
