A glow of orange floods each room

To banish all life’s doom and gloom

The sun’s rays bouncing off the cots

If they are filled or they are not.

The morning stirs, the day begins

We cannot know who’ll lose, who wins,

The halls are quiet like a mouse

There are few sounds about the house.

I hear tip-toes along the hall

A squeaky wheel, a pregnant stall

The silence drowns my every thought

Too sad this spot where some are brought !

The wind and trees communing near

Share a language that we can’t hear

The rustling leaves stand on their toes

Assured which way each breeze now blows

The tenure of the branches sway

Sending its message to clear the way

The smallest lift aft day is done

Displays to all a contest won !



NOUGHT TO SAY ( 2017 ) 2017/05/25

There was a tree that I had seen

Quite lush and large and oh so green

When I was young and not so tall

The tree had barely grown at all.

I’ve watched it age through all the years

Some good, some bad, some full of fears

But always spreading out each limb

As if in thanks offered to Him.

The tree is old, well I am too

If truth be told, we’ve shared a view

Times are long past, we’ve had our day

So like that tree nought left to say !

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 !



NEVER ENDING COLD ( 2017 ) 2017/01/19

I’ve trudged among the trees where winter breezes blow

Shuffled through the streets piled high with new fallen snow

Lingered in the shelter of tall buildings nearby

Silent as particles of snowflakes gently fly.

There is certain quiet that I appreciate

Appearing only after the hour has grown late

And so it is in winter we place dreams on hold

All’s impossible in this never ending cold !

So now my Lord, the curtain falls

It’s gently slipping down the walls

The silence flowing all around

Leaves ne’er a whisper to be found.

The light is dim it barely shows

Its shadows all seem to have froze

Tis time for us to catch our sleep

And conjure dreams that we may keep !


WIN, LOSE OR DRAW ( 2016 ) 2016/09/08

The air is still, no breeze at all

There is no sound, no lone bird call

The streets are silent, quiet, hushed

No barking dogs or frantic rush.

The silence permeates each room

Defining life’s tenacious gloom

Our God is there to keep the score

Controlling all win, lose or draw !
