I’d like to spend my time imagining

What life is all about and reason why

The Lord decided it was smart planning

And gave us choices to help make us try !

 

MAKE A CHOICE ( 2020 ) 2020/01/16

The  heart gets worn and  tired too

As  through our  lives  we’ve much to do

When  shall we find  one day to spare

How  can we make  the time to care ?

We  know that  God is on our side

That’s  brought about  through love  not pride

Lord  help us please  to understand

Show  us our pleasure  second-hand.

Grant  us the power to  make our choice

To use  our heads,  our hearts,  our voice

How  wonderful that it would  be

To  share in God’s  posterity !

 

 

 

 

HARMONY ( 2020 ) 2020/01/14

Trust  is the factor we each need

If  we’re  expecting to succeed

As  it’s required  to understand

We  clasp our hands  across the land

For we  can’t  work together if

Between  us still exists some  rift

Let’s  try once more,  learn to agree

Achieving  perfect  harmony !

Now  I’ve loved God  my whole life through

Without  my faith what  would I do ?

The  sum of all the good  one does

And   past visions of what once was

Are  the reasons to  carry on

When  it appears  all hope is gone

Let’s  take a chance  with  one last try

Before time  fades into  goodbye !

 

A PERFECT FIT ( 2019 ) 2019/12/10

I  waken to the  light  outside

It’s  pale and dull,  on the flat side

The  sun’s smile  has been hid away

By clouds above,  some sad and  grey.

Tomorrow  brings a better  chance

Of  love and joy  mixed with romance,

Our  lives are full of  ups and downs

With happy  smiles and  miles of frowns.

Let’s  spice it up,  just  for a bit

Perhaps,   we’ll  find  a perfect  fit !

 

 

 

 

WAIT OUR TURN ( 2019 ) 2019/12/05

This life is full of mix and match

Grab anything that you can catch

Hold on  because you never know

What  opportunities  will  show.

It  may not  seem to  be enough

Though often when the going’s tough

There  is a lesson we  need learn

That each of us must  wait our turn !

 

THE WINDS OF CHANCE ( 2019 ) 2019/11/17

Filed under: POEMS.....THOUGHTS.....MEMORIES — bogdanosclaire @ 2:06 am

The  sun  is rising  in the  sky

To peer o’er roofs  of homes nearby

And  shine a ray of bright  sunlight

To veil the darkness  of each night.

The winds of chance  are more  discreet

As  they blow  change across the  street

And  every single  breath we  breathe

Is  one  more  memory to  leave !

 

 

 

HIS WORLD ( 2019 ) 2019/11/09

The  earth is round  and full of strife

From sea to sea  it teems with life

It’s full of valleys,  mountains high

Where giant  peaks reach  for the sky.

Trillions of acres  garbed in green

Four hundred  billion birds are seen

Where eighty  billion souls  may be

Before  this life will  set us free

A world  of sound,  eclectic light

An  image  of God’s  Own insight !

 

 

 

FREE HEARTS TO TRY ( 2019 ) 2019/10/07

Slim  fingers of the  breaking  dawn

Are  shining  through the  window  pane

While  shadows  signal early  morn

And  capture  fractured light  again.

How  sad this  world that  has no chance

To  teach their  children how  to fly

Or  find some  path  to seek romance

Enticing  all free  hearts to  try !

 

 

 

NO GUARANTEES ( 2019 ) 2019/09/06

Filed under: POEMS.....THOUGHTS.....MEMORIES — bogdanosclaire @ 5:56 am

There  are no  guarantees in life

For mother,  child,  husband  or wife,

We all  have travelled  on life’s road

Unburdened  or with heavy load

There is no  crowd to cheer us on

No magic  words to lean upon

No tragic curse that  we’re aware

Or law that says  what must be fair.

We understand that on each path

There can be times of  doubt or wrath

Yet often  seems so  very sweet

When hope and joy  with love compete

I do not  know  the  why of it

And pray  most times that we shall fit !

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

WHAT CAN I DO ( 2019 ) 2019/09/05

What  is it  I can do for  you

Encouraging  each  wish comes true,

Seeking for you a  safer place

Increase the smile upon your face ?

How may I ease your weary day

Help chase your  fearful cares  away

Decrease the  lonely  burden  of

A  life’s  existence  without love ?

Is there  some  joy that  I may gift

Ensuring  you that  spirit’s  lift

And promise that I shall  try hard

To be there as you search for  God !

 

 

A NARRATIVE ( 2019 ) 2019/07/12

When I was young and words were few

Seems that I knew just what to do

I’d  “ape” the sounds  that I had heard

Turned out that each was but a word.

Soon I was there upon the stage

At rather quite an early age

With words and syllables to speak

Like some enchanted childhood freak.

I never thought  back in those days

That I’d wind up in high school  plays

I learned to sing and tap dance too

With  lessons from  the age of two.

Quite  long  I’d been an only child

Forever  charming and  beguiled

With discipline supplied on call

And kisses shared with every fall.

Today we miss what used to be

Safe childhood and security

Our faith is  great it’s  taught us this

All  lives were  meant to share God’s  bliss !

 

 

 

 

 

HEART AND HEAD ( 2019 ) 2019/07/04

I hear the whistle  on the track

It  seems to signal  “hurry  back”,

So  many  indications  sound

That help us to get all around

A  whistle blows,  a bell may ring

Birds  in the trees,  their voices sing

There is a  message  to be  heard

Tis  time to  treasure every  word

Be  ready to  accept the  call

We  know that  pride  precedes a fall

Take  care to  listen to  what’s said

And love  your God  with heart and head !

My dearest friend,  I miss you so

The depth far deeper than you know

The “used to be”, that is, once was

My heart was thrilled,  my days abuzz.

I still recall with no regret

Too many hours we shan’t forget

The little which we understand

Of all that lies in our command

Our tender days that ought to be,

Got lost within diversity !

THE NEW YEAR BEGINS ( 2018 ) 2018/12/31

The willows in the wood reach the ground

Stretching their branches down all around

The stars in the sky shimmer and shine

With greetings they bring to yours and mine.

This year’s ending with no alarm

Leaving us with past wealth and old charm

Let’s look ahead to days that soon come

Sharing with others a bit and some

Forgiving all our errors and sins

How wonderful each New Year begins !

 

 

YOUR LAST CHANCE ( 2018 ) 2018/12/14

One day you’re here and then you’re gone

While every other soul moves on

The time’s arrived when you are done

Tis soon an end to all begun.

There really is no second chance

Except for that last parting glance

So soak it up, the final perk

Tighten your belt and get to work !

 

 

EACH FRONT DOOR ( 2018 ) 2018/11/05

The early dawn creeps o’er the hill

The world about seems calm and still

Tis all this peace at breaking morn

When hopes and dreams must be reborn

The silence brings a short respite

Escaping most of night times fright

As aspirations rise once more

To knock again on each front door !

 

 

 

KEEP UP YOUR GUARD ( 2018 ) 2018/10/26

Tis true, tis true, all heaven knows

There is a feeling, grows and grows

We need You Lord, the night blows bold

Tis sad to think,  but youth gets old.

They too must trod this selfsame road

Perhaps bearing a greater load

Remember that each breath we take

Has many varied paths at stake.

Make sure each step is firmly gripped

Without a chance, footings have slipped

Take care secure one true regard

Think safety and keep  up your guard !

 

 

 

HOME OF THE FREE ( 2018 ) 2018/09/27

Our America had its birth you know

Over two hundred forty years ago

Through the thunder, lightning and fire we grew

Into this nation of red, white and blue

In the rockets great glare we won the fight

And created a star that shines so bright.

With welcoming heart and book in her hand

The Lady in Green in the harbor stands

As she holds the torch for all who will see

This home of the brave and land of the free !

 

 

THE STATE OF MAN ( 2018 ) 2018/09/18

Morning shades of drab tans and gray

Are always getting in the way

Of peach and golds to shocking pinks

That welcome most as sunrise sinks.

Oh what I’d give at last to see

The rainbow this world used to be

Where all felt a great need to share

With those who chanced to visit there.

I’ve often wished that I might find

A fairy wand, the magic kind,

To do the job tales tell it can

And much improve the state of man !

How little do we know of life

Its loss and gains, its joys and strife

How soon before we all must find

The courage to all fears unwind ?

 

DO NOT FORGET TODAY   9/11/2001.

 

FADE AWAY ( 2018 ) 2018/08/25

There’s little time for childish games

As now most face true adult aims

The chances lessen day by day

For those who choose a calmer stay.

More stamina is what we need

If all God’s values we pay heed

Remember life is here to stay

It’s only we who fade away !

 

ANTICIPATION ( 2018 ) 2018/07/17

There is this dream in which we’re caught

Wherein our hopes and fears are fraught

A place where passions that we knew

One day at last will follow through

To fold us in God’s circle of

His unabashed enduring love !

 

 

 

HEAVEN’S DOOR ( 2018 ) 2018/05/15

The world is dying all around

I sense a shaking of the ground

What is this that’s now happening

God’s prophecies awakening ?

Has time run out and left us here

To ruminate or shed a tear ?

What does this mean to all of us

And will it cause a giant fuss ?

I’m not sure of the sound it brings

Sometimes I think it’s angel’s wings

Perhaps that what I’m wishing for

Some path to open heaven’s door !

 

PERCHANCE ( 2018 ) 2018/04/06

Good morning Lord, this is another day

With all new miracles spreading our way

Among the olden dreams we still expect

Like fantasies perchance that we reject

Who knows what favor God will deign to show

Let’s give it time to spread and shed and grow !

 

I SEEK MY DESTINY ( 2018 ) 2018/04/05

I feel so empty deep inside

Like I’ve been on a rocket ride

Perhaps to Venus or to Mars

Out there in space among the stars.

Quite like the stranger  I’ve become

To find myself grown cold and numb

Will someone help explain to me

Where shall I seek my destiny ?

 

 

 

 

LIFE’S DEBRIS ( 2018 ) 2018/02/03

Tis true that I would like to know

Which way the busy winds do blow

And how steep will the waves all be

Crashing in the cold winter’s sea ?

Will the tide come rushing ashore

Just as the moon rises once more

To greet its eventide asea

Amidst life’s crisis and debris ?

 

INTERMISSION ( 2018 ) 2018/01/28

Filed under: POEMS.....THOUGHTS.....MEMORIES — bogdanosclaire @ 3:28 am

I feel somehow a pending urge

As all my fears and passions merge

The path  to seek a higher road

Henceforth to carry life’s great load

And find a place where each may rest

Before attempting life’s contest !
