Some days the sun plays peek-a-boo with me

In and out, house to house, or tree to tree

Just when I think the sun is here to stay

How odd, that’s when it seems to slip away

Or hides behind a patch of clouds up high

Like some huge colony there in the sky.

I wonder how the clouds so quickly glide

And what I’d see if I could be inside

There are so many questions left to ask

It has become a never ending task !

The candle burns, its flame is bright

Lord help us to survive the night

It is no matter what we know

Or where it is that we shall go

Perhaps we’ll never meet again

Or share once more remember when !

The shadows drift down through the trees

And shimmer in the gentle breeze

The dried leaves crackle underfoot

The chimney’s belching smoke and soot

The nightfall moves in like a cat

With moments ripe to have a chat.

A chill is in the air it seems

Soon time for reverie and dreams

The quiet shifts into the past

I think the day now breathes its last !

The day grows short as twilight nears

Increasing all impending fears

The darkness moves in closer now

Casting its shadow cross the brow

Welcome to night time one and all

We’re making ready for the call

That detours each along the way

Before our lives just melt away !

Does man get lost in hopes that are not fair

While ever wanting to seek paradise,

As trees lift up their arms to God in prayer

Are men then left alone to their device ?

Life has a vast divide existing there

To reach in darkness feeling no alarm

For man’s oft judged by trappings he may wear

And so has learnt how to evade this harm ?

But still in God’s lost idyllic garden

Where fragrant roses will forever bloom

Lie shadows of those soon forgotten

Not unlike whispers in a silent room !

 

 

GREET THE DAY ( 2015 ) 2015/05/07

Another morning has begun

Tis grand to feel the warming sun

Its fingers slipping through the blind

Leaving the dark of night behind.

The lacy patterns on the wall

Keep spreading till they reach the hall

I can no longer laze away

Its time to rise and greet the day !

The terror of the night draws near

Keep still my heart it may not hear

A drama that each life endured

While hour to hour we are inured.

The smallest sound becomes a threat

We have not found our solace yet

Elusive peace where have you gone

Into the land that lies beyond ?

Say can you tell me what is there

Or will you guess how I shall fare

It matters not for who can know

What lies beyond each new shadow ?
