Have you thought at all about the clouds

As they spread too wide across the sky

 

And wondered where have they been before

In that giant highway up so high?

 

Tell me may I join your entourage

Shining bright and white with glory’s glow

 

Following your celestial path

Will I see or can I get to know?

 

Far and wide just freely floating there

As they wend their way within my view

 

Overhead the image grows with hope

I shall spy the sun come peeking through !

 

 

THE JOURNEY ( 2013 )

I am consumed with a wonderment of God’s world

Its untold secrets hid, its banners left unfurled

The promise of its vision clear now soon to come

Not by the will of man or beast to welcome some

With open heart, love of God and uncluttered mind,

The courage to accept the treasure we may find

No sacrifice can be too large to comprehend

The great beauty we shall know at our journey’s end.

I guess that life may be a mix of good and bad

A challenge of courage with outcome sometimes sad,

While thinking about it in modest simple ways

Let’s pray that we should learn to balance all our days

With care and moderation, cautious as we try

Beware of foolish aims that scheme to reach too high.

We do not wish to fail the last and final test

For in the end who dreams to be just second best?

 

Keep to the path you’ve chosen and follow ev’ry  rule

Abide by all you trust and use each proper tool.

Near to the end be wise, accepting each new role

And thank those stars above you’ve earned your earthly goal.

We need to be reminded that God’s love is always there

Along some darkened corridor or up a lonely stair

Or else where on the precipice beyond all cautions call,

How can His help be summoned to protect us from a fall,

It’s with our faith and true repentance and His loving care

That we beg our steadfast God that His angels will be there !

 

MY NANA ( 1945 ) 2013/06/11


 

I’ve loved you God since I was small

Because my Nana told me so.

I loved you when I grew quite tall

And heard the stories I now know.

Because she said you did it all

With kindness and a loving heart

And meant the world to heed your call

To love each other from the start.

I wish I’d learned how not to stall

I’ve tried to follow where you go

The path is long most seem to fall

I know, my Nana told me so.

 

ANGER ( 1981 ) 2013/06/09


I stand upon some mountain’s peak

To gather words with which I’ll speak,

Inform the world that I have learned

What wisdom bought and patience earned.

Too oft I’ve seen and much too late

That human love is laced with hate

And chiding words while meaning well

Through futile waste and time dispel

An arrow that lays deeply bound

Into the breast that it has found.

And so it is that as I strayed

I heard the ache of those who preyed,

I saw the grief of those who need

Much loving care and special heed.

 

I turned away and tip-toed passed

My pulse beat loud, my breath came fast

I bowed my head with hidden shame

And damned the cause for which I came

Such weariness within my soul

One endless search for self-control.

Am I not bold to travel on

To seek this myth of Avalon?

 

FRAGMENTS ( 2013 ) 2013/06/07

There’s a single moment that I, at times regret

That’s now become a tarnished fragment of my life

In which I may remember or by chance forget

That somewhere in the past I was another’s wife.

I had another future, knew another dream

With  passions I recall seen only in the mist

Like visions in the clouds or ripples in the stream

By chance to recollect some long forgotten kiss.

It lingers in my mind, I cannot tell the why

The sadness of it all, it only comes in waves

It cowers in the dark and will not bid goodbye,

Then follows like a thief into our hidden graves.
