CARPET OF FALLEN BLOOMS ( 2018 ) 2018/05/12

Sweet cherry blossoms filled the air

They fluttered frantic with despair

And twirled above the barren ground

As all their blooms were settling down.

Their color faded in the mist

Where raindrops and warm breezes kissed

Their crumbled blossoms ruled the street

Where silken ashes cushioned feet !

What parent would their obligation waive

To save their child from complications grave ?

An admonition we’ve known from the start

About what God holds sacred in His heart,

This father’s son asking for bits of bread

Would give his child a bit of stone instead ?

Sometimes the world is full of gloom

Its sadness darkens every room

The seasons change, they come and go

From springtime’s warmth to winter’s snow.

Days roll on by with no account

Midst tears and sighs in great amount

And justice finds it needs a place

To challenge evil’s false embrace.

What was has been and is no more

Once lost will never be restored

The saddest words that one can say

Oh Absalom, you’ve gone astray !

The night was dark and cool and clear

The air around was free of fear

As I recall it used to be

When life was happy and carefree.

We laughed and cried and fussed a lot

About what’s fair and what was not

Though not one person would declare

That their own treatment was unfair !

We lived and dreamed our lives away

Believing each, from day to day

This was our homeland, small or large

Where bullies never were in charge !

I’d like to think God’s on my side

When I begin to slip and slide

Perhaps e’en tumble down some hill

Like that famous pair, Jack  and Jill !

How wonderful that we may be

A part of Christ’s own victory

When good will triumph over all

And destiny will not be stalled

Let’s all standup and cheer aloud

Be grateful we have joined His crowd  !




NO COWARD IN VICTORY ( 2018 ) 2018/04/27

I sailed down mem’ry lane today

Reviewing things that we might say

And thought about it long and hard

I wonder, have you embraced God ?

Since you and I did not agree

On ways each handled destiny

I’d like to think we shared a view

Of all that would be right to do.

Now you’ve been gone for quite awhile

You earned your honor hero style

This is one lesson you’ve taught me

There’s  no coward in victory !


THIS IS HIS SHOT ( 2018 ) 2018/04/22

An early light knifes through the dark

The air is still and calmly stark

A silence rises from the ground

One can’t discern a single sound.

Before the morning does begin

There is a chill that settles in

Starting at toes, it makes the trip

To limbs and then to fingertips !

How much longer must all await

To learn the judgement of our fate

In truth we know what we have got

God is the Judge, this is His shot !
