The beauty of this nation that grows and flows and shows

From the heights of all its mountains o’er which our sun glows

To the depth of each valley and green of all the hills

That the heart may surely treasure as part of God’s thrills

Brings to us joyous pleasure with promises untold

Teaching simple lessons how life’s mysteries unfold !

Here from my window what do I spy

The clouds o’erhead as they float on by

Can it be the wind that makes them fly

Or our Engineer high in the sky ?

So many questions I’d like to ask

It truly is a cumbersome task

There’s too many things I need to know

Like trees and plants and flowers that grow

Or fruits and berries, all types of beans,

About life and death and what it means

There’s one more question I’ll put to you

Can you tell me why the sky is blue ?

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 LONELY PATH ( 2016 ) 2016/01/03

I have walked along a lonely path that leads I know not where

And found myself adrift upon a deserted thoroughfare

I have wandered in the empty fields abandoned by the flock

And trudged the way where bales of hay were stored for the winter’s stock

Now here I am alone at last close to my true destiny

And all I’ve learned and thought about is a mystery to me !

Oh Lancelot, dear Lancelot, where is it you have gone

What lost and lonely metaphor may we depend upon

Oh Lancelot, kind Lancelot, please help to make me smile

I would love to be a maiden for just a little while

And when my life is over and my fate has been resolved

I’d rise above the madness with no mystery unsolved !

 

OLD IMAGES ( 2015 ) 2015/12/11

There was a stranger that I’d met

I’ve often found hard to forget

A chubby chap with ruddy cheek

Whose laughing eyes through glasses peeked.

His outfit of bright red and white

Somehow escaped true fashion’s height

His wide black belt was extra length

His speech displayed great vocal strength.

I knew we’d met some place before

Perhaps in Macy’s New York store

Now that was long ago I’d bet

Some images you can’t forget !
