BEAUTY OBSCENE ( 2020 ) 2020/06/04

Tis  the  time  of  year  when  sunshine  smiles

And  the  sky is  so clear  for  miles  and  miles,

When  the  birds  in  the branches  of  the  trees

Circulate  their  message  into  the  breeze

While  the gentle  wind  does  rustle  the  leaves

Now  playing  in  the  shadow  of  the eaves.

The  trees seem  to  yawn  and  stretch  in  the sun

As  spreading  shrubs  have  their  flowers  begun

So  it  is  that  our  world  of  growing  green

Paints  pictures  to  all  of  beauty  obscene  !

 

THE SONG OF BIRDS( 2020 ) 2020/05/25

There is this joy that mornings bring

The song of birds upon the wing

Their voices calling to their kin

An early morning checking in.

They chirp and croon familiar tunes

From breaking dawn through afternoons

Making each creature here belong

Though some are frail yet others strong

How wonderful that God’s so wise

He’s made His Own Bird Paradise !

The cattle low, the rooster crows

Tis quite early in the morning

The trees will bend, the wind it blows

Another day soon is dawning.

The squirrels hustle in the trees

Their booty they are defending

While pigeons roosting mongst the leaves

All their messages are sending !

 

THE SUMMER’S DONE ( 2019 ) 2019/10/25

I’m so sad  that the  summer’s done

It’s  leaves are falling one by one

The wind moves  slowly in the  breeze

While  sailing quiet  through the trees.

There  is a crispness in  the air

Relief  from heat  we’ve had to bear

Too  soon the winter  will  appear

To fill  the balance  of the  year.

Then  when the  dawn does  shine its light

That  emanates from  brilliant white

Reflected  there  in swirling  snow

You’ll  see the  season’s  icy show !

There is a noise I hear so clear

Of chaos ringing on my ear

Machinelike thumping banging round

External scraping on the ground,

The buzz of saws and screeching tires

A twisted mass of falling wires,

Oh what a sight this morn has brought

As city streets in storm are caught !

 

 

PROXIMITY ( 2019 ) 2019/05/23

I often think the Lord is there

In every garden that we share

With odors that o’ercome the air

And seize upon our senses rare.

A garden is this magic place

In which God lends to us the grace

That brings a smile to each one’s face

Engulfing us in His embrace.

I wish that I could always be

Involved with such an entity

Like plant or flower, vine and tree

Within our Lord’s proximity !

I look outside, what do I see

A field of violets smiles at me

While over in the corner there

Two lilacs do their blooms compare.

Hydrangeas all like spreading out

They love the space and so they shout

“Hey, look at me, I’m gussied up

My blossoms fill your largest cup !”

Consider all the dandelions

They are the brighest of all kinds

And when they grow close to the ground

They’re the best cover to be found.

I’d like to think that flowers know

How much we love them as they grow

And keep themselves sweet as they can

In tribute to God’s love of man !

 

 

CREATION SURVIVES ( 2019 ) 2019/04/04

I’m often amazed by facts I see

Of how our Lord helps both you and me

And thus He tends our world from up high

In heaven as He is passing by.

While the leaves do fall and dissipate

On ground beneath, there hover and wait

For rains to fall on assorted roots

Where the winds wake up the tender shoots.

Cycles of life going on and on

A method we all depend upon

Such glorious plans that He provides

Assuring all creation survives !

 

 

 

 

 

WINTER BEAUTY ( 2019 ) 2019/02/12

The snow has covered all the ground

There’s not another soul around

Our world of white is drowning in

A swirl of ice and sleet and wind.

There is no color anywhere

Except for trees whose limbs are bare

And evergreens both small and tall

Whose silouettes display it all.

This winter beauty that we see

Will fade away eventually !

This world lies cloaked in veils of white

That floated down all through the night

The morning woke to wond’rous sight

All layered like ice cream delight.

The air so crisp, it filled each room

And chased away old winter’s gloom

Let’s pray the laughter will resume

As happy smiles begin to bloom !

The sun it rises in the sky

Preparing to bid morn goodbye

The day progresses faster now

Soon twilight will appear somehow.

The sun does sink beyond the trees

The moon it rises with dark’s ease

The stars above sparkle and shout

Tis now the time for faith devout !

Mocking bird, mocking bird sing me a song

Keep me amused through this afternoon long

Oh sweetest of sounds, please show me the rest

Sing me those melodies I love the best !

 

DOES NATURE SPEAK ? ( 2018 ) 2018/11/25

I glanced out o’er my yard today

To watch leaves slowly drift away

As one by one they sailed on by

A gust of wind made each one fly.

It seemed as though they spoke to me

But silence is their destiny

There’s too much that I need to learn

The list is long, it’s turn by turn.

I often wonder what we’d do

If nature had a word or two

So you and I might understand

What is the message of the land !

The tender shoots have gone to bed

They chose to doze in spring instead

The cherry trees have gone to sleep

The willows now no longer weep !

All of God’s seeds are taking naps

Avoiding all the snowy traps

The season sure makes one big mess

With slosh and cold, I must confess.

Think of all the joy it will bring

When God appears in early spring

Returning treasures we had lost

To snow and ice and winter’s frost !

 

STANDS GUARD ( 2018 ) 2018/09/16

The sun peeks out from behind each cloud

A chorus of birds all sing aloud

While the air about still smells as sweet

The wind has mellowed and is discreet.

What a perfect day just fore the storm

Where life as we know it is quite norm

Let’s carry on as we have before

And pray the Lord stands Guard at our door !

 

 

GOD’S ENTITY ( 2018 ) 2018/09/14

I see the rain now tumbling down

Like teardrops rushing to the ground

The Power it accompanies

Is Parent to all plants and trees.

How splendid is the light He brings

To all of this world’s living things

For even mountains rise with time

While valley levels will decline,

How wonderful it is to be

Creations of God’s Entity !

 

SEE US THROUGH ( 2018 ) 2018/09/01

Throughout the world, before too long

Folks will count most eight billion strong

There’s no two that will be exact

Believe, because this is a fact.

While each must follow their own track

Sadly there is no turning back

So just keep going and perform

And try your best to rules conform.

There is no right, there is no wrong

We seem to land where we belong

The only Power we’re subject to

Is God above, He’ll see us through !

 

I CAN BUT DREAM ( 2018 ) 2018/08/23

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 !

The eagle flies and tilts his wings

Into the wind as courage springs

The sight of which from earth below

Imprints his efforts in this show

Upon those seeking there aground

The eloquence that he has found

With visions of his grandeur high

He is the strength in God’s great sky !

 

METAMORPHOSIS ( 2018 ) 2018/07/23


I wish, I wish that I could be

A butterfly that flutters free

I’d hop from flower to flower

Sipping nectar by the hour

And spend my days in company

That looks and sounds the same as me.

I know my lifespan cannot last

Thus all I do must happen fast

Since most bug life accelerates

There is no time for friendly dates

And so this beauty that we see

Too soon before one knows shall flee !

 

 

THE GROWING SOUND ( 2018 ) 2018/07/19

Do you hear the hum of the growing sound

As nature keeps expanding all around

Or feel the subtle tremors that rebound

From energies released in our surround ?

Can you smell the sweetness of this new ground

Where earth’s nutrients appear to abound

Breathing strength into gully, hill and mound

Producing plants and flowers brightly crowned ?

 

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 !

 

TEACH SOME MANNERS ( 2018 ) 2018/05/18

The dampness seeps inside the glass

And seems to weep along the pane

A labyrinth of life’s morass

Attacking all, again, again.

Oh would that we might rule the path

And currents that control the Main

With the power like our God hath

To teach some manners to the rain !

Oh Mother Earth where is your charm

That beauty we’re depending on

Falling snow and icicle balm

Creating scenes to wish upon.

While winter frost that melts in spring

Uncovers nature’s blossoming

So like a dream meandering

Will hear the forests gossiping !

The fog creeps in so silently

It slowly rises from the sea

The air is still with ne’er a breeze

There is no rustle in the trees.

I feel a chill upon my skin

What kind of chaos are we in

I cannot see in front of me

When will our world be trouble free ?

 

ALL THE JOY ( 2017 ) 2017/04/02

Let’s thank the Lord for many things

Like sun and rain and April springs

Including all the birds that sing

And trees that host most everything,

The fields and valleys lush with life

Trails cut through forests like a knife

A night time sky that glows so bright

With stars and comets in their flight,

We thank You Lord for all these things

And all the joy Your loving brings !

 

 

A WINDY DAY ( 2017 ) 2017/03/29

Can you hear the tumult of the wind

It whines aloud  that it be let in

The shutters tremble, the shingles roar

Can you feel the rattlng of the door ?

The mighty wind blows so fierce and loud

Where it gets caught bullying each cloud

Why won’t it move in a calmer way

And save its power for another day ?

 

 

SPINNING OUT ( 2017 ) 2017/03/15

I’m peering through a veil of white

That is this early morning’s sight

Watching the snowflakes filter down

In pirouettes close to the ground

They flutter, dance and swirl about

Their silent beauty spinning out !
