GOD IS ALL ( 2020 ) 2020/07/10

Time keeps flying, like birds in flocks

Across the mountains, fields and rocks

O’er meadows wide midst giant hills

With rapid rivers, rushing rills

How wonderful to hear the sound

Of nature spreading all around

Be sure, our God is always there

To save each from this dark despair

Oh blesséd Lord, You do not fail

And with Your help, all will avail!

 

 

NOTHING GOOD ( 2020 ) 2020/06/28

Hypocrisy  is  all  around

It  emanates  up  from  the  ground

And  fills the  world  with  poison  air

To  propagate  our  great  despair

How  little  do  we  know  or  mind

Of  all  the  history  we  find  ?

The  whole  truth  is  what  all  should  crave

If  we  are  to  be  strong  and  brave

Can  we  survive  this  huge  attack

When  will  we  have  our  honor  back  ?

The  future’s  grim,   misunderstood

Without  God’s  love  there’s  nothing  good  !

 

 

 

FAVORS ASK ( 2020 ) 2020/06/23

Lord  help  us  to  remember  this

That  life  is  not  a  hit  or  miss

Its  purpose  has  been  clearly  known

And  pathways  have  been  rightly  shown.

The  way  ahead  may  seem  obscure

We  need  to know  that  road’s  secure

Before  we  take  our  dreams  to  task

And  of  our  God  all  favors  ask  !

 

REBUKE ( 2020 ) 2020/06/16

There  is  a  sound  that  I  can  hear

It  seems  to  whisper  in  the  ear

Is  it  the  wind  that  steals  about

With  soft  whispers  and  ne’er  a  shout  ?

What  must  I  do  to  make  it  clear

That  God’s  rebuke  is  all I  fear  ?

 

FEARS ( 2020 ) 2020/06/14

Filed under: POEMS.....THOUGHTS.....MEMORIES — bogdanosclaire @ 11:03 am
Tags: , , , , ,

The  wheels  of  time  turn  slowly  round

Wherein  the scale  of  life  is  found

The  hours  are counted  one  by  one

Until  each  lonely  day  has  done.

We’ll  dream  our  dreams  and  pray  that  we

Accept  the  rule,  freedom’s  not free

Oftimes  the  cost  goes  far  beyond

A  price  of  which  we  are  not  fond.

Since  discipline  is  what  it  takes

And  safety  is  the  rule  it  breaks

We’ll  try  again  to  make  it  clear

The  only thing  to  fear  is  fear  !

 

 

ON THE CHIN ( 2020 ) 2020/06/07

We  need  one  man  to  lead  us  now

We  need  this  special  sacred  cow

To  him  we’ll  give fidelity

He  is the one  who’ll  set us  free.

Let’s  raise  our  voices  to  thank  him

To  save  us  from a  future  dim

He  offers  us  another  choice

To  help  our people  and  rejoice.

We’ll  hail this  chief  and  pray  for  him

Because  he  takes  it  on  the  chin   !

 

 

HIS SHOW ( 2020 ) 2020/05/30

The tide flows in all swift and fleet

And almost knocks me off my feet

The water moves at a quick pace

And comes and goes with ne’er a trace

It makes no sound as it moves on

But silent, seeks its echelon.

For all we know, what do we see

One’s vision of sobriety

Hold on, hold on, do not let go

God’s beside us, this is His show !

 

AT LAST RELEASE ( 2020 ) 2020/03/11

Filed under: POEMS.....THOUGHTS.....MEMORIES — bogdanosclaire @ 3:49 pm

I’d  like to think  that  I recall

The  tender years  when I was small,

I  sat upon my  grandpa’s  knee

And  snuggled  while he read  to me.

There  was a story  I  loved best

Both  head and shoulders o’er  the rest

About  the night  our Christ  was born

And  how the world  rejoiced that  morn

As  angels sang  and skies  did glow

The  world did kneel  and honor show.

God  placed  His star  high in the sky

With  earth  to note its  passing by,

His  promise of  eternal  peace

And  from all  sin,  at last release !

AMEN.

 

 

 

THE TRUTH IS ( 2020 ) 2020/03/09

Half  hidden here  behind the eye

Of  all the  stress now whizzing  by

Many  events  do come and go

Disclose  or hide  facts  we need know.

Time  will invoke  the common sense

Grownups  require  in their  defense

However  will  the youth  now learn

The  value of  each truth  discerned  ?

For  without  truth how  shall one find

The  straightest  path to  help unwind

The  answer  is,  twill  always  be

The  truth alone  shall set us free  !

 

 

 

YESTERDAYS ( 2020 ) 2020/03/08

I  see the rooftops through  the trees

The  sun  now bouncing off  the eaves

The  sky is clear  and ever bright

I  do not  see a   bird  in sight

The  silence  echoes  in my ears

Allaying  all my  aged  fears

But  soon the sun  must fade away

To  morph  into  some yesterday

My  life continues  as  it goes

Just   on and on till  heaven  knows  !

 

 

OUR JOURNEY’S JUST BEGUN ( 2020 ) 2020/03/07

Man  cannot live  without a dream

Believing  elsewise  is  extreme

How  difficult  without  a cause

Our  lives  are dull  and lack  applause

There  is a vision  all do need

To  raise  each up,  to help succeed

We  have a God,  be  not afraid

He  is our Friend,  our Help,  our Aid

And  in the  end  when life seems  done

Tis  when our  journey’s  just begun   !

 

 

DISPARITY ( 2020 ) 2020/02/22

Oh  little cat with  four white boots

It’s  clear to see, we’re in  cahoots

Together you and I  will be

Two  partners  in  disparity.

Your  coat of striped grey’s thick and bright

Your neck  cowl is  so  furry white

Where do you go  when you leave here

Is  it too  far or  really  near

What will  you do when  fall has  done

And winter cold  too soon  has come ?

 

I’ll  miss you if you  go away

What  can  I do  to make you  stay

I’m  trying hard  to  comprehend

I’d  like our  friendship  not to  end !

 

 

WALK GOD’S WAY ( 2020 ) 2020/01/30

Oh  blessed Lord,  I am so sad that I

One  day will soon be forced  to bid goodbye

And  so to leave here with one fond farewell

Hence to the world our sad,  sad story tell.

While  all the dreams  one dares to dream are due

We’re  not without the help and  care from You

We  beg of You to trust each in this way

Thus  join our hands and walk  God’s path today !

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

HIS POWER ( 2020 ) 2020/01/27

Filed under: POEMS.....THOUGHTS.....MEMORIES — bogdanosclaire @ 4:28 am
Tags: , , , , ,

The  world  we’ve  known waits outside  the door

Where  it may be what  we’re  praying for

A  kindly  word or  a tender  heart

To  grace  the day with a healthy start.

Outside  the door  where true life exists

Common  sense should  forever persist

For  each needs  the strength to  carry on,

Passion  to follow when hope is gone,

Then  reach for the sky  to touch a cloud

Praising  the Lord and  his power aloud !

 

 

 

 

HARMONY ( 2020 ) 2020/01/14

Filed under: POEMS.....THOUGHTS.....MEMORIES — bogdanosclaire @ 7:45 am
Tags: , , , , ,

Trust  is the factor we each need

If  we’re  expecting to succeed

As  it’s required  to understand

We  clasp our hands  across the land

For we  can’t  work together if

Between  us still exists some  rift

Let’s  try once more,  learn to agree

Achieving  perfect  harmony !

 

 

EARN HIS TRUST ( 2020 ) 2020/01/04

Turn  on the lights,  the dark is here

It  is that dismal  time of year

After  the harvest  and the fall

Winter  becomes  the king of all.

Since  we are captive  to its power

Day  after day,  and hour by hour

To  learn the lesson  is a must

If  we are e’er  to earn His trust  !

 

 

 

SENSIBILITY ( 2019 ) 2019/12/30

My  heart’s so sad  I cannot bear

The  thought that I may never share

Or  see the end of all we’ve wrought

And what has been  or heard or taught.

The  dreams of all our yesterdays

That  in this life  do garner praise

Are kept quite safe  in memory

Reflecting  our  identity

For  dreaming is a part  of what

Life  is about,  like it  or not  !

 

 

CHRISTMAS JOY ( 2019 ) 2019/12/24

There  is a sound  I remember well

The  joyous peal  of our Christmas bell

Resting  there in its  lofty steeple

Reaching  out to all  of His people.

Granting each one love,  peace and surprise

On  Christmas morn  as all do arise

Thank  God for our blessings  great and small

May  the Lord above  gift hope to all !

 

THE RIGHT TRACK ( 2019 ) 2019/12/19

Filed under: POEMS.....THOUGHTS.....MEMORIES — bogdanosclaire @ 12:24 am

There’s been a moment I recall

A moment that came first of all

Before we challenged all the rules

And listened to the sound of fools

When sense was part of every day

And kindly words were ours to say

Tis time to get our values back

And keep us all on a right track !

 

DOUBTS AND FEARS ( 2019 ) 2019/11/30

Filed under: POEMS.....THOUGHTS.....MEMORIES — bogdanosclaire @ 1:28 am

Dreams  are part of each one’s life scheme

For  none exists  without  some dream

The  good,   the bad,  the  discontent

Have  dreamt  those that from God  are sent.

The  Good Book  tells  tale after  tale

Of  those  angels  that  are  regaled

The  simplest  babe  while fast  asleep

Reacts  to dreams  the while he  sleeps.

No  one  eludes  reality

Of  this  wide world  of  mystery

Through  which  all fears  do ever  wind,

The  place where  our doubts  are confined !

 

 

WHAT WE’VE SEEN ( 2019 ) 2019/11/24

Filed under: POEMS.....THOUGHTS.....MEMORIES — bogdanosclaire @ 7:26 am

Without  a word,  where would we be

If   this world  found it’s  harmony,

Ten  thousand years  seems time enough

To  figure out  the  going’s  rough.

I’ll  never  understand  the why

The  choice  is not  to live  or die,

But  can we hope or  chance to  dream

That  life holds  more than  what we’ve seen !

 

HIS WORD AND PSALMS ( 2019 ) 2019/11/23

This  heart of mine has grown so old

As  weather now turns wet and cold

The  spring is just too far away

To  ease the tensions of the day.

Perhaps  this winter will prove kind

And happiness we each shall find

Together  with the  peace and calm

We  garner from His  Word and Psalms !

 

 

ALONG THE WAY ( 2019 ) 2019/11/19

I  took the path  along the  way

Because  I knew I  would not stray

The  trail was long,  the road was straight

My  caution was  I must not  wait .

While  age and time  have much to share

About  the ways  in which we care

For  in the end  what e’er we do

Determines  what  and  where and who !

 

IMPROBABLE ( 2019 ) 2019/09/23

Because I was  and am  no more

Before all hope  slips out the door

And leaves  me here out  on my own

With what I fear is yet  unknown

I beg You,  Lord,  bide with  me still

Until  I’ve learned to  do His will !

 

I LOVE ANGELS ( 2019 ) 2019/08/21

Filed under: POEMS.....THOUGHTS.....MEMORIES — bogdanosclaire @ 6:10 am

I have  met an angel in  my dreams

Who’s more helpful than an angel seems

All shapes and sizes is how they come

Short and tall, while slim or stout are some.

An  angel is a  child  of the Lord

Whose aim is true and of God’s accord

I’d  love an angel for  my best friend

Cause they’ll be there till the very  end !

 

 

EVERY GIRL AND BOY ( 2019 ) 2019/06/27

A special bit of heaven came knocking on my door

And sounded so familiar, I’m sure we’d met before

Oh my dearest child, you are a wonderment to me

Please come visit me again whenever you are free

I pray that you will share all the laughter and the joy

That God does offer gladly to every girl and boy !

 

 

 

NOAH’S FAITH ( 2019 ) 2019/06/26

Filed under: POEMS.....THOUGHTS.....MEMORIES — bogdanosclaire @ 12:07 pm
Tags: , , , , ,

The storm,  it thunders all around

With ne’er a silence to  be found

The  light’ning   crashes in the  dark

Illuminating  all  in  spark

Its odor makes the air smell sweet

As rivers flood through every street

I  wonder if  old  Noah  feared

The wrath of God when it appeared,

Those moments when the clouds did burst

Do you  believe  that  he felt cursed

Or was his faith  in God so strong

He held no fear his whole life long ?

 

 

 

 

 

 

GOD’S COMMAND ( 2019 ) 2019/06/25

Filed under: POEMS.....THOUGHTS.....MEMORIES — bogdanosclaire @ 6:49 am
Tags: , , , , ,

Oh my dearest angel wherever you may be

My arms still long to hold  you ever close to me

The years may come and go and never shall we meet

Until the final day,  perhaps on  heaven’s  street

And if that  day can’t happen, I shall understand

That all I have prayed for falls under God’s command !

 

AMEN.
