I  took the path  along the  way

Because  I knew I  would not stray

The  trail was long,  the road was straight

My  caution was  I must not  wait .

While  age and time  have much to share

About  the ways  in which we care

For  in the end  what e’er we do

Determines  what  and  where and who !

The snow has covered all the ground

There’s not another soul around

Our world of white is drowning in

A swirl of ice and sleet and wind.

There is no color anywhere

Except for trees whose limbs are bare

And evergreens both small and tall

Whose silouettes display it all.

This winter beauty that we see

Will fade away eventually !

There is a thought which fills my mind

That life has been both cruel and kind

Tis full of many ups and downs

Replete with smiles and a few frowns.

When all is well, rough storms appear

The weather, it’s not always clear

At times I’m sure we’ve been undone

When all seems cold and not much fun.

But wait a moment look about

The sun has opted to come out

To save us from catastrophe

Life is God’s true dichotomy !

The raindrops fall upon the sill

The clouds are now at overfill

And moving in their passive way

The rains await another day.

The sky is full of sweet surprise

Beginning with each new sunrise

The stars all twinkle through the night

Some to be hidden from our sight.

The wind that powers every breeze

Silent ripples midst natures frieze

While sounds of life are vibrant still

They carry on and always will !

 

“THE EARTH ABIDETH FOREVER”

 

 

LOOKING GLASS ( 2015 ) 2015/11/13

I feel the mist that covers all

While winding through the shades of fall

Seems life survives beneath this tent

Of autumn days that God has sent.

The leaves that fly along the street

Now dog the foosteps of our feet,

Ambitious winds that heave and sigh

Impatient now await goodbye.

The seasons come, the seasons go

This is the pattern that we know

So little changes as we pass

Our lives before God’s looking glass !

 

LIFE’S CYCLE ( 2015 ) 2015/06/01

The winds of March have ceased to blow

Spring blossoms have begun to show

Too soon the waves will breach the land

To plant their kisses in the sand.

The sun will warm us one and all

And gird us to prepare for fall

As on and on life’s cycle grows

Mornings wake as all evenings close !

 

FORBEARANCE ( 2014 ) 2014/12/29

If we could see into the past

Oh what deeds we’d discard fast

Words we wished were never spoken

Promises that we have broken.

Oh what challenge this world now shows

And watch just how our wisdom grows

With all the courage we can save

To keep us smart and safe and brave.

But we this gift not yet received

While in our lives too much deceived

We know at last it is too late

We’re not the owners of our fate !
