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  !

Now  I  have climbed  the mountain high

And  struggled there to touch  the sky

I  dreamt of  visions I  had  seen

Somewhere  above and  in between

But  all that  time I  found instead

These  lofty thoughts  lived  in my  head !

Oh how I wish that I might spy

A comet streaking cross the sky

Or sight a rainbow shining through

When clouds appear misted with dew.

I want to know which way to go

As evening stars commence their show

Or what it takes to reach the moon

By rocket ship or space balloon.

How wonderful this world would be

If seen  with eyes of fantasy !

There are times when I think of the past

And all of my dreams that failed to  last

I recall quite well what used to be

When life held moments of ecstasy

And a precious love faithful and true

Along with that which was called virtue,

And I ask of myself what comes next

There’s no hope left for some grand pretext !



OUR REMEMBER WHEN ( 2017 ) 2017/11/25

Oh Santa Claus, dear Santa Claus

I’m writing to you just because

Christmas is coming round the bend

It’s time to share it with a friend

Though not so simple as it seems

As Christmas nears it fosters dreams.

It is a season to feel young

With Yuletide carols to be sung

It would be nice if we’d return

To days when candles would be burned

When children small were told the tales

Of magic sleighs that had no sails.


The reindeer were believed to fly

Across the reaches of the sky

But let’s pretend a moment more

That elves may work in Santa’s store

It’s true I’ve never seen an elf

Except ceramic on a shelf.

Well never mind, this too shall pass

Like Alice through her looking glass

Until next year, same time, same place

Anticipating your embrace

I pray I’m not too old by then

Forgetting our remember when !






REALITY ( 2016 ) 2016/06/16

Repeated for hundreds of years or more amongst ourselves

Are stories of the jinn and little folk, fairies and elves

Reminding us that the mystery of life is just that

Charming and enchanted tales recovered from life’s magic hat

Teaching us morals and lessons of what our lives could be

Without losing attachment to our God’s reality !

Lions and tigers in a row

And when they move where do they go

Into the jungles of the mind

Midst fantasies we yearn to find.

Camels and horses are there too

Waiting faithful for me and you

With rainbowed colors they all wear

In their wild flowing sculpted hair.

Seems right for us to ride away

When organ music pipes to play

As round in circles we must go

Until it’s time for life’s next show !

Long time ago and faraway

I dreamt a dream one special day

That someone real would come my way

And when it happened that we met

Twas such a thrill much like kismet

I felt we were on track and set !

Dreams may not be all that they seem

Perhaps pure fluff with lots of steam

I hoped we were on the same team,

Who knew what changes would be made

Or if some foolish game was played

Sad in the end when dreams just fade !
