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 !

There is a shaft of light just resting on my sill

Some mayhaps see it, others never can or will

Like sunlight in a garden when the leaves are still

Basking in the silence some hearts may sense a chill

There gleaming in the distance o’er each dale and hill

God’s gracious glow of love while gifting us a thrill !

There is this need I have to share

My joy, my love with those who care

My heart is full, impelled to say

God in His beauty crowns each day.

The sun that’s rising overhead

Now spreads his rays across my bed

His fingers skim my window pane

And cause my life to sing again !

Sometimes I believe that raindrops are tears

Falling from angel eyes

Reminding us that angels also have

Dreams not yet realized !

The world is full of lonliness

With dark amidst the emptiness

The only  light that still exists

Is that in which God’s love persists !

Nay, do not flail against the darkness

That is a battle you cannot win

There’s but one way to beat its starkness

Just use a candle to bring light in !

Dawn awakes with a lazy yawn

And signals that nighttime has gone

As each day does arrive on time

While life begins its daily climb.

At eventide the lights turn on

Like magic lasting until morn

The twinkling stars remain intact

All constellations are exact,

How wonderful it all must be

God’s master of astronomy !

The sky o’erhead is overcast

It’s great expanse is far too vast

We’ve elements for any taste

And all that air a shame to waste

Compared to when we are aground

Where lush hills circle all around.

There is no sound so sweet to hear

As cheeky birdsong on the ear

I’d like to think that when they sing

The bells in heaven start to ring

The angels echo their reply

They light the stars in darkened sky !

I wandered in the darkness while life was passing by

In my nomad-existence I never questioned why

And as those days expired I wondered what I should do

I asked my God to help me please, try to see me through

And from that day to this I have followed in His sight

I don’t reside in darkness, my life is full of light !


KIND AND TRUE ( 2016 ) 2016/05/20

To live a life of no regret

To dream until that last sunset

To know what one is waiting for

Or how to seek the proper door,

To find a light when it grows dark

Or follow pathways in the park

To lend a hand to all who need

Or understand when one must lead,

These are the things that men should learn

When time does come to be their turn.

Our God has writ what all must do

To be His servant kind and true !


CITY LIGHTS ( 2015 ) 2015/01/14

I’m standing by the window here

The city lights so seeming near

The sky above all black and grays

Now changing with the dawn’s first rays.

Her light moves slowly in the skies

Revealing morning’s bright surprise

Another day has come to stay

Don’t worry she’ll soon go away.

The city lights forever are

Like wind and rain and moon and star

These gifts of God from up above

Insuring His eternal love !

Of all the stars that shine at night

This pulsing orb shone ever bright

So far away that’s where you are

How vast is that, oh distant star ?

I’d often thought when older grown

That stars were made of ancient stone

No soul that lives will ever breach

The journey there, too far to reach.

I’d like to trust that I may grow

In times of peace not those of woe

Too high upon some mountain peak

Convene with angels as they speak.

Aware that I am not alone

Keep to the path with end unknown

Assured that God will still be there

To light my way no matter where !


GODS BRIGHT EYE ( 2013 ) 2013/08/25

Just as a single ray of Gods bright light rehearses dawn

And one single thought or moment full of love inspires morn

There is a way in which the sun glows brightly in the dark

To roll aside the shallow pall that hides in vision stark

And frees us from this sadly silent corner with His grace

When tears and fears and other losses beg to be replaced

Then shine within the depths of all the darkness of the mind

With Gods bright eye to light pathways to peace that you will find !
