ONE BIG BLAST ( 2019 ) 2019/09/17

Though  I  am old,  I can recall

Those golden days  when  I was small

When  I was but a growing  tyke

With stuff  I liked or did  not like.

I  was not tall  nor  ego prone

Far  long  ere my ideas were  sown

I liked  to play quite by  myself

With  my  stuffed friends  upon the shelf.

Most lives  were so much  simpler then

We wrote  with  ink and  nib and pen

There  were few ways  we got about

While  horse and wagon  still stand  out.

We  learned to  treasure  moments past

Dear  God,  those years were one  big  blast !

Oh little lamb you are so sweet

God loves to smell your roasting meat

He’s rather fond of incense too

With scents of flowers red, pink, white, blue

And all the candles that we light

To chase  the darkness of the night.

How  simple  it can  be to show

The proper path  that we must go !

 

 

 

 

SPEAK SOFTLY ( 2019 ) 2019/03/15

I hear the wind, it stirs the trees

And whispers softly to the breeze

Please help me Lord because I’m lost

It matters not what e’er the cost

For I am old, prepared to die

And learning how to say goodbye !

The sun it rises in the sky

Preparing to bid morn goodbye

The day progresses faster now

Soon twilight will appear somehow.

The sun does sink beyond the trees

The moon it rises with dark’s ease

The stars above sparkle and shout

Tis now the time for faith devout !

 

 

 

A PRECIOUS ACT ( 2019 ) 2019/01/01

I feel the reach of freedom here

That calls so softly on my ear

Quite childlike in its innocence

To not accept, would make no sense.

Now freedom is a hopeful word

It means the best to us we’ve heard

And conjures up a special brand

Of lifestyle that comes close at hand

It treads on no one else’s space

Where each moves on at one’s own pace

A precious act protecting rights

Avoiding foolish, feckless frights !

 

BY CANDLELIGHT ( 2018 ) 2018/11/15

A simple meal by candlelight

To take the chill off winter’s night

A table set with antique lace

Warmed by the glow of an embrace.

The silence that accompanies

This sudden chill before the freeze

While God and man try to maintain

The quiet calm that shall remain !

Help us oh Lord, teach us to pray

Lend us the words we need to say

How much we shall appreciate

God’s loving care and power great !
