We’ve seen the shadows on the wall

Heard echoes of the clarion’s call

The battle signals rang out clear

To fall at last on hollowed ear.

There’s no mistake upon the ground

Or impact of each magic sound

While trumpets blow and blare away

This message for the latter days

A change is coming, wait and see

To wing the way to victory !

To love our God and country too

Those are the things I chose to do.

To furnish aid to those in need

Encourage others to succeed

Grant help to many who deserve

To earn a chance to give and serve.

It’s true our nation must be saved

If we are to escape this grave

Of shattered dreams, distorted facts,

Repeated crimes and heartless acts.

Please rescue us and keep us free

Lest we betray our destiny !

When I look up into the sky

So full of creatures that do fly

Where images that catch my eye

May mix with clouds here passing by.

Imagination can’t restore

What it is we are searching for

That special something most adore

A secret gift behind each door.

The world is full of guile and guise

Beneath the sea, above the skies

We live in times of great disguise

Truth is hidden amongst the lies !

 

EMPTY CANVAS ( 2017 ) 2017/12/18

Lives are like the canvas all white and clear

That too soon begins to cloud up with fear

Add a hint of ochre as we all grow

With colors God paints into each rainbow

If circles or squares lapse into the breach

May they be beyond lost destinies reach.

 

As each canvas becomes part of the dream

Of what we’ve reached for or where we have been

Or the brushes get tired or weather worn

Take care we don’t all get tattered or torn !

 

 

 

REJECT DEFEAT ( 2017 ) 2017/11/12

The sun, it filters through the leaves

Its shadows bouncing off the eaves

Upon the rooftops round about

Seagulls and pigeons thawing out.

The frosty chill of early morn

Gives rise to wishes yet unborn

That men and nature be discreet

Learn how to share, reject defeat !

 

 

WHICH ERA ( 2017 ) 2017/11/10

It’s time for all to stop and think

Our world’s been trembling on the brink

The last thing that we need right now

Is someone else’s sacred cow

Another reason to resist

Or confrontation to exist.

We’re not so very far removed

From where our lives were unimproved

The horse and buggy were our ride

While sanitation was outside

And I’m not sure I can be pressed

To choose which era I like best !

 

MULTICOLORED WORLD ( 2017 ) 2017/10/31

I wish that I could tell you why

The grass is green and  blue’s the sky,

That clouds are white but sometimes gray

Which indicates a rainy day.

I really do not have a clue

If bluebirds all are colored blue

Or if a robin’s breast is red

What color could it be instead ?

I’d like to think there is a plan

That’s meant to help me understand

Why  colors are of such import

Among the many things we’re taught.

There are issues labeled  black and white

Does that mean everything’s alright ?

Imagine life as  colorless,

This world of ours would be a mess !
