THE TRUTH ( 2017 ) 2017/08/22

Circuitous is not my style

And never found to be worthwhile

Straight forward is my only choice

That’s where I opt to use my voice

I’ve learned with time that truth still pays

Thank God, it lightens all my days !

 

ROOFTOPS ( 2017 ) 2017/04/25

As I look out o’er rooves and chimney top

There’s no place I can make my vision stop

That is not brick and mortar all alone

Accompanied by wood or tar or stone.

Now rooftops are a lonely barren place

Lacking enthusiasm to fill our space

They bring no beauty or accommodate

In any way the grace of man to date.

Of course they serve a purpose  that’s a must

Saving all from cold, wind, storm, rain or dust

But I would love to look across that span

Envisioning God’s beauty all I can !

 

 

HE DOES NOT LIE ( 2017 ) 2017/04/06

Whatever is it that I spy

Is that a rainbow in the sky,

The colors are so crisp and clear

Is it the first for me this year ?

Those seven colors that I see

Bring such great joy to giddy me

Red, orange, yellow, green and blue

Indigo and violet too.

Quite a vision that all may share

I wish that I could fly up there

And touch that rainbow God did paint

To find out if it is or ain’t.

God left His mark there in the sky

Reminding us He does not lie !

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

RESPECT ( 2017 ) 2017/03/22

I’ve told you about my teddy bear

And all of the dreams we two did share

We’ve spoken of my Raggedy Ann

You know I was her favorite fan.

While my mom and dad who loved me so

Taught me my manners and how to show

Kindness and love to all that I greet

How to keep my faith and be discreet.

From my nana dear who was so wise

And my grandpop with those laughing eyes

I learned that life might be a great joy

If simple respect we would employ.

For whom in this world devoid of hope

Could manage to win or learn to cope

Without the aid of the God we know

And all the angels  we’ve met below ?

 

 

 

WHITEOUT ( 2017 ) 2017/03/14

One cannot hear a single sound

Silence has fallen all around

The world rests in its wrap of white

That covers all we have in sight.

There blinks above no lonely star

Nor other remnant from afar

No steeple bell or chime is heard

None dare to utter any word.

Too many hours the snowflakes fall

In their great haste to cover all

The moon’s been hid by swirling snows

That’s all to see where e’er one goes !

 

 

 

 

THROUGH THE DOOR ( 2017 ) 2017/02/04

I love the way the snowflakes fall

In their great rush to cover all

They land in heaps about knee high

And keep on swirling from the sky

This place is clouded in pure white

It sure is one dramatic sight.

Just feel the air it’s frosty cold

The snow’s a power to behold

It glitters bright for those who share

The magic and elusive glare.

I sure would love to greet the sun

Assured that soon the cold is done

Though we shall have to wait some more

Before this spring walks through the door !

 

 

 

 

LOVING CARE ( 2016 ) 2016/09/26

There are times I rest idly on my bed

While many visions spin around my head

And I am caught in pages of the past

Among those hopes and dreams that did not last.

Now I’m sure hopes are prayers we cannot say

And dreams must keep until a later day

Lose not your faith in all that is to come

This Power we trust is neither blind nor dumb

And all we ask is that  we may but share

The smallest bit of our God’s loving care !
