Oh wicked wind where have you been

What kind of trouble are you in

You’ve set your aim upon the waves

And sent great ships unto their graves.

You’ve damaged all the tallest sails

With wild velocity of gales

You’ve churned the sea into a broil

Unfit for gentleman or churl.

All islands are in fear of you

Because of ravages you do

The mountains cower under seige

Due to the damages you leave.

The sands of deserts crowd the air

Because your strength does tarry there

Where do you fit into God’s scheme

I do not know, I can but dream !

 

 

 

TAKE A STAND ( 2018 ) 2018/06/23

There is no way I can explain

The value of the sun or rain

Or birds that span this vast terrain

Like herds that roam life’s wild domain,

Or early dawn and morning dew

Like twilight’s glow before curfew

While oceans, lakes and rivers too

Are full of life that’s out of view.

Too much for us to understand

That exists under God’s command.

We need to learn what has been planned

So we know how to take a stand !

Before You grew to be quite tall

Sweet Jesus, when You were still small

What kind of life was it You led

When first arising from Your bed ?

We know at twelve You went to Shul

There questioned and reviewed God’s rule

To keep Your faith You did atone

Though in Your trial You stood alone.

Oh Son of God, You did not fail

Your life we shall forever hail

You are our Hero and our Friend

It shall be so until the end !

 

 

 

THE CONTEST ( 2018 ) 2018/01/23

The wind and trees communing near

Share a language that we can’t hear

The rustling leaves stand on their toes

Assured which way each breeze now blows

The tenure of the branches sway

Sending its message to clear the way

The smallest lift aft day is done

Displays to all a contest won !

 

 

A PRAYER OR TWO ( 2018 ) 2018/01/18

The storms of winter blow wet and wild

Enough to threaten both man and child

With the fury of weather’s power

Enough to caution both day and hour.

God’s creatures must hide or run away

As these conditions seem here to stay

There appears to be little to do

But sit back and say a prayer or two !

 

WORDS OF LOVE ( 2018 ) 2018/01/13

Across the miles of earth and sky

The days of man are flashing by

How long before this age has passed

And we receive its final  blast ?

Seems there’s no voice now reaching out

Explaining what it’s all about

We need a word, some sort of sign

Assuring us there still is time

A book of rules, instructions too

From experts on what we must do

To cover each iota of

God’s wisdom and His words of love !

 

THIS IS HIS SHOW ( 2017 ) 2017/10/04

There’s no time left, we’ve lost our way

We cannot fail, not one more day

As angels in the clouds above

Extend to all unending love

Our Lord on high is waiting there

He feels our pain and hears our prayer

For there is nothing He won’t know

The world forgets, this is His show !
