STILL ON MY FEET ( 2018 ) 2018/12/22

What’s that I hear upon my roof

Loud raindrops or a reindeer hoof

T’would be a very great mistake

If I some foolish error make.

There was a time that I recall

His bells were jingling in the hall

But that was oh, so long ago

How old was I,  bout five or so.

I spied the bells there on the floor

Outside of the old hallway door

Yet never caught a glimpse of him

Or of his jolly hairy chin.

I’m sure that he is very wise

Politely keeping his disguise

Perhaps next year we two may meet

If I am here still on my feet !

An icy sleet covers the ground

There’s no safe footing to be found

The winter’s menu slowly grows

Extending to some heavy snows

Alas this season seems to be

Arriving inconveniently !

We little know or can surmise

What fate will bring or life surprise

Each day begins with a clean slate

That offers chance upon its plate.

A new beginning one and all

The chips of life await the call

But who will win or who will lose

I do not know who gets to choose.

Enough to say I cannot bear

Too many times life is not fair !

 

ANOTHER DAY ( 2014 ) 2014/09/29

Sometimes I wake when it is dark

And lie abed with vision stark

I hear the creak each structure makes

As wind and rain the silence breaks !

I note how trees do bend and sway

It seems that dawn is on her way

The day begins its morning song

As silent we will join the throng !

The senses soon repeat the flow

Who knows where each new day will go

Because today may bring surprise

God hear my prayers before I rise !

 

 

PICNIC ( 2014 ) 2014/07/04

A bandana tied with simple knot

A small bouquet of forget-me-not

A beach blanket set upon the grass

Napkins, utensils and plastic glass !

What do we have here before our eyes

I think it could be picnic surprise

Oh, how romantic and ever sweet

What secret treats and what will we eat ?

I see a basket next to the tree

Must be luncheon meant for you and me

Is that bottled bubbly I can spy

To celebrate the Fourth of July !

 

MORNING MOON ( 2014 ) 2014/01/19

I looked outside into the sky

And in the west there shone this eye

So round and full and bright and white

Set in blue sky mid morning light.

I find it strange the two should meet

Like passing strangers on a street

I think that God employs surprise

Morning magic as we arise !

How much more ere we each depart

Will He reveal to trusting heart

To prove to us omnipotence

Is His alone in every sense ?
