Life is not strange nor is it cruel

It violates no golden rule

For in most seasons, young or old

The fields are plowed or bought or sold.

Some lie fallow while some are green

Others produce to the obscene

No two alike that is God’s way

As each creates his own display !

 

 

TAKE SUCH CARE ( 2019 ) 2019/03/25

Oh squirrel, squirrel on the wall

You are the greatest thief of all

I see you quickly moving in

And stand up tall as you begin

The slightest sound makes you flash freeze

You look as rigid as the trees.

You do not move one tiny bit

Your eyeballs glaze without a twit

I’ve tried quite hard but I can’t hold

A candle to your posture bold

Your garment fades into the fence

I guess that’s part of God’s defence.

You don’t seem big enough to eat

You are all fur with little meat

Oh frisky rodent you must play

Another role in God’s display

There must be other jobs you do

For God to take such care of you !

Regarding all life’s pain and ache

I’ve found my heart close to a break

Select a path which each must choose

And for this once walk in my shoes

The complex part aft all’s been done

Is sadness that does one o’ercome.

However long this life may be

There’s but one judge of thee and me.

Tis true for those who’ve gone away

There is no option leave or stay !

 

TO VICTORY ( 2018 ) 2018/05/30

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 !

 

 

 

BETRAY OUR DESTINY ( 2018 ) 2018/05/28

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 !

 

 

 

 

AMONGST THE LIES ( 2018 ) 2018/04/21

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 !
