The thoughts they rise quick from the heart

So like a stream of stop and start

There is no way there is control

As words just start to roll and roll

Quite like the breeze or winds that blow

To keep recording with the flow

While from the mind this message send

T’would be alright if it should end !

There is a place we all yearn to be

It’s not across some far-widened sea

Nor over hills or great mountainsides

And not where malice or anger hides.

It’s not under trees that reach for sky

Or where the eagles and buzzards fly

It’s just a place around the last bend

Of a lonesome road that seeks its end,

To that spot where most lives got their start

And have left behind their lonely heart !

A misty morn does greet my eyes

The snow capped rooftops seem surprised

White carpet covers everywhere

The streets appear all stark and bare

This bleak facade that I now see

Lies still in ice cold harmony.

A likely thought that comes to mind

As winter winds have grown unkind

It’s time to host a fireside chat

‘Bout pleasant themes or this and that

There cuddled up in some huge chair

With warm and happy thoughts to share !

 

YESTERDAY ( 2014 ) 2014/07/23

Do you remember times gone by

When stardust sprinkled evening sky

And silence was a welcome friend

Who visited at each day’s end ?

When words were meant to carry us

Into the twilight’s quiet hush

With thoughts of what is yet to come

To comfort all and solace some ?

This simple task, a wistful one

Recalls how quickly life is done

While all we’ve known does go astray

Soon to become our yesterday !

 

ONE MORE CHANCE ( 2014 ) 2014/05/01

Sometimes I think that I am smart

Possessed of kind and loving heart

My timid soul has tried its best

To reach the goal or pass the test.

At times I fall and get up fast

While rapidly, brief moments pass

Swift hours go by and I wax old

My bones seem stiff, my feet are cold.

The winds of change have come and gone

I have retained my lexicon,

I think I’d like just one more chance

Before my last and final dance !

Forgotten things you’ve left behind,

Footsteps in sand as days unwind,

A trail of tears that time may find,

The scent of air amidst the pine.

As I waken the words just fill my head

I write them down as fast as they are said

The rhyme is simple and the words ring true

Simply cannot stop till the thought is through.

Don’t know if this process will ever cease

I’ve prayed hard to find a kind of release

To begin my day with another act

Like some worthy cause or related fact.
