MAKE OR BREAK ( 2018 ) 2018/04/23

A tender thought, a gentle kiss

Remembrance of the moment’s bliss

A kindly word, instant treasure

Memories of constant pleasure

These are results of many dreams

That culminate in joyous scenes.

Our world writhes in much angst and pain

It begs such effort to contain

We need more care to educate

And simple souls to formulate

A pattern of life’s give and take

As we weave through its make or break !

We are the home of heroes, every color, every size

But who are those now making this effort to minimize ?

It’s been our own courageous patriots who’ve built this land

A place where citizens can work together hand in hand

This homeland where the people have the freedom and the choice

To fly the flag, sing the song, say the pledge or raise their voice !

I love the spring I love the fall

I love God’s word above else all,

The mountains that do rise so high

With many that reach for the sky

 

The valleys that engender rain

The hills that stretch across the plain,

The oceans and the seas so deep

These are provisions we need keep

 

A sultry storm, the desert heat

Fields that produce the food we eat,

The forests that protect the home

Where creatures live and breed and roam

 

This is the world we can’t replace

God gifts to us our lives to grace,

Tis strange how oft we lose our way

Yet manage still to greet the day !

 

LOST THIS YEARS AGO, NEVER PUBLISHED BEFORE.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

DISABILITY ( 2016 ) 2016/02/04

Of all the things I miss the most

Those lengthy walks along the coast

Where one tred beaches on the shore

And climbed small dunes there by the score.

Wandering amongst seagrass plumes

While ocean roar veils salty spumes

To laugh and play upon each wave

And treasure all the joy it gave.

But that was oh, so long ago

Before the accident you know

Since then the ocean is taboo

Like hilly roads and hiking too.

I find myself confined a bit

There are those places I can’t fit

I still savour life to the core

Just not the same as life before !

Do you recall what it was like

When you were but a tiny tyke

And kids would play out in the rain

Barefooted, zooming like a plane ?

Or hopscotch on a city street

With concrete squares beneath your feet,

What’s happened to those days of joy

When children could be girl or boy ?

A game of tag or hide and seek

Just count to ten and do not peek,

Oh how much fun there used to be

When children were kept safe and free !

Have you seen all the shades of blue

That seem to range the ocean through

From azure light to dark blue green

With all the shades that lie between ?

From almost clear close to the shore

Or paler as you dip your oar

Reflecting rays of strong sunlight

Or midnight dark under starlight ?

Such a happy phenomenon

I sure would like to dwell upon

What all of this can mean to me,

I think  God loves diversity !

 

GREATNESS ( 2013 ) 2013/09/03

Of all the deeds that I have done

Like all the prizes I have won

They wither on life’s weather vine

And lose themselves in acts divine.

I’m most impressed by pelting rain

That crashes on my window pane

And storms that rage throughout the night

Or mornings drenched with precious sight.

A rose that grows without a thorn

Is natures wonder to be born

Such joys that man cannot command

To rule this life and breath at hand.

Seems fate has willed the final toss

On freedoms chains and wisdoms loss

There’s but one answer I can state

That man is small while God is great !
