HAPPY CHANCE ( 2020 ) 2020/06/24

The  wind  blows  wild  and  plays  a  song

I’d  like  to  learn  to  hum  along,

It  isn’t  hard  to  sing  a  tune

With  words  that  rhyme  like  June  and  moon.

Such  mirth  it  brings  to  wonder  this

And  to  imagine  youth’s  first  kiss,

I  wish  that  I  might be  again

That  girl  I  was  away  back  when

The  thrill  of  love  and  sweet  romance

Could  offer  me   a   happy  chance  !

How  often is  it that we think

This  world of ours  is on the brink

That  maybe we’ll  fall off  the  ledge

Or  slip as  we sit on the edge

I’m  truly  stuck in reverse  gear

What happens  next can  hold no fear !

We do not know through all these years

A time so full of angst and fears

Is this the war from days of old

That ages have this story told

The one the prophets have declared

For which we now must be prepared.

Whomever dreamt that we would be

Faced by this great calamity,

May God have mercy on our souls

Help us secure our end time goals !

How  I wish our love of  Christmas cheer

Could  live through  each day of this  new year

Why  should its joy  come and go away

To  leave all  this space  for our display ?

 

Let’s  pray that  God has a  plan for all

That  will take  us there  from now  past fall

And  if we’re  lucky as  we can be

Opens  the door to  Eternity !

 

 

 

CONSISTENCY ( 2019 ) 2019/12/22

Can  you hear winter winds break through the trees

With  frozen breath and chill,  an instant freeze ?

I hear the crackling ice,  it falls away

Reminds us  weather changes day by day,

It  sort of  vacillates and jumps about

Exposing  purpose,  choice,  free will  and doubt.

So let us now  our precious  chances take

Pray  God  we’ve no  more branches  left to break !

 

 

GOD’S JUDGEMENT DAY ( 2019 ) 2019/09/11

How often is it  that  we think

This  world of ours  is on the brink ?

What  e’er occurs  within our  sight

No matter if it’s  left  or right

Should  savour all  despite  the fear

God’s  Judgement Day  moves  ever near !

 

 

 

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 !

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

EVERY TURN ( 2019 ) 2019/09/02

Shimmering  stars are seen at night

Displaying  all their  brilliant light

Creating highways  in the sky

On  which explorers do  rely.

I wish  that we on earth  could know

The  magic that God’s sky does show

Of  life as is and  how we learn

To  choose our  path at every turn !

 

 

OPTIONS ( 2019 ) 2019/08/03

Have you e’er pondered  over  angel  wings

How they  could get caught in our  worldly things

Such as  doors, windows and archways or screens

Or limbs of trees or in branches of greens ?

How do they manage to dress up each day

Looking so sweet in angelic display

I wonder if they wear stockings or boots

Do they prefer eating  ice cream  or fruits ?

Isn’t it strange that we know nothing more

Of where they’ve been until now and before

I’d sure like to find  some  lessons to use

To help me decide which pathway to choose !

 

DISPLAY ( 2019 ) 2019/04/08

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 !

 

 

NO CHOICES ( 2019 ) 2019/01/28

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 SWEET 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 !

 

 

 

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

Filed under: POEMS.....THOUGHTS.....MEMORIES — bogdanosclaire @ 8:01 am
Tags: , , , , ,

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 !

 

NARROW ROUTE ( 2017 ) 2017/08/21

Oh how I wish that I might find

A path that’s safe and does not wind

The straightest road without a curve

Is more a choice than I deserve

For narrow as the options be

It is the route that pleases me !

 

CHOOSE TO FOREGO ( 2017 ) 2017/07/02

My heart flies high on silvered wings

As I embrace rememberings

For all on earth I have not seen

And places that I haven’t been.

Like memories forever lost

It matters not whate’er the cost

Some visions I will never know

Are those that I choose to forego !

 

 

IN DARKNESS ( 2017 ) 2017/04/22

The pendulum moves side to side

It is a somewhat boring ride

And doesn’t variate a bit

When in the rut where it does fit

And that’s a lesson to be taught

About this web in which we’re caught.

Sometimes it may be truly fine

When one decides to tow the line

However that does not preclude

A change in venue or in mood

For each must have freedom of choice

So they may exercise their voice !

 

 

TO NEVER TRY ( 2017 ) 2017/04/20

Filed under: POEMS.....THOUGHTS.....MEMORIES — bogdanosclaire @ 7:30 am
Tags: , , , , ,

Is there a goal that one must seek

To make us stronger, not so weak,

A purpose that each one must find

To help escape a path unkind.

A babe is born most are the same

Except for color, sex and name

It’s left to them to win or lose

The way of life that each shall choose.

Some win, some fail, some others cry

And there are those who never try !

 

 

 

THE CHOICE IS YOURS ( 2017 ) 2017/04/09

This heart that now beats in my breast

Is old and tired like the rest

The times have come and they have gone

This life we know must carry on

No matter what we choose to do

Oh Lord, we leave that choice to You !

 

 

 

A CHOICE ( 2016 ) 2016/11/07

Filed under: POEMS.....THOUGHTS.....MEMORIES — bogdanosclaire @ 9:52 am
Tags: , , , , ,

I wish, I wish I had the words

To tell the crowd how to become

A connosieur of the absurd

Or prophecy of dumb and numb.

This world grows smaller day by day

And madness has now grown a voice

I wish that I could run away

Or help dear God to find a choice !

 

GOD IS THERE ( 2016 ) 2016/06/14

I believe that life has levels of

Concern and care, devotion and love

They are with us for a lifetime long

And range from the meek to ever strong.

Perhaps some require a stouter voice

To channel the option of their choice

One must not accept that all is lost

Or believe that failure is the cost,

Stand up and shout or cheer if you will

And know that your God is with you still !

 

 

THE GUY ( 2016 ) 2016/05/16

Tis sad that we who work so hard

Confirm our faith, believe in God,

Must shield ourselves from Satan’s might

Or cower under power’s fright.

It seems our world is threatened by

This league of rogues both low and high

Who bar the path that we must take

To save our values or forsake.

As for myself, I’ve one reply

I chose my God, He is the guy !

 

 

FATALITY ( 2016 ) 2016/05/05

The fog slips in and hugs the ground

The air is still there’s ne’er a sound

I feel the damp inside my bones

My feet can’t grasp the slipp’ry stones.

I sense the chill invade my space

Oh how I need escape this place,

Before my mind grows dim and old

And all I’ve known wanes dread and cold !

 

To Edward Pavlovich, an old friend who painted

my portrait in 1951,  I remember you ! Thanks !
