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

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 !
