Can you see the clouds all drifting by

While summer days, they do swiftly fly

The wings of time quickly fade away

Leaving shadows of lost yesterday

With those memories we shall recall

We have entered into shades of fall.

Past the windows of the mind we’ll see

Sweet beginnings of our victory

As the church bells toll for me and you

And the adventures we have been through

We shall face  tomorrow hand in hand

Prepared to enter Forever Land !

 

 

INTO THE AIR ( 2016 ) 2016/12/19

When I was young I fell in love

What was it I was thinking of

New fallen snow and frosty air

What did I see that wasn’t there ?

 

I was in love with winter’s spell

Cozy firesides if truth can tell

And as it happened I was lost

In passion strong that took its course.

 

I really thought our dreams came true

That you and I shared the same view

The winter once more brought the snow

Those fields of white began to grow.

 

But snow like life does fade away

To make room for another day

So like that snowman shrinking there

Some love just melts into the air !

My advice to you my darling friend

Is take time to dream before the end

Do it now ere you have fully grown

It curries magic you have not known

Supplying cushions to fall upon

As life turns into a marathon !

 

TRANSITION: AN ENDING THAT IS A BEGINNING ( 1974 ) 2013/04/25

Wistful windows that long for strangers in the night,

Restless dreams lust to capture fantasy in flight,

Illusion contriving all rank of rebellion

And prowling, seeks other pastures hither and yon.

Restful spaces in which the heart can love again

Belong not just to imagery, vivid or plain,

When leaving love behind, one closes many doors

Breaching other vistas fair caprice explores.

To keep a steady grasp on sensibility

Frequently becomes a friendless calamity,

There are spans when fears rise, increase and terrify

And striving as we might, all judgement nullify,

Direction appears elusively to transit,

Then to find ourselves lost and in our grief expand it.

The gentle soul with sacrifice that seems insane,

The loving heart that begs consistency in vain,

Take heed, those apertures yawn widely in and out

We may overcome them, if we can conquer doubt.

Thus do not cry, venture bids one to try once more

And seeking, find that life and love, as was before.

Forsake thoughts that abide with mock serenity,

Visions of affairs that end in obscenity,

And travel in the realm of never-ending hope,

Of all the lessons taught, the best, learn how to cope.
