Communion

11 September 2016

If we can escape

The frenetic cries,

The fanatics’ rhetoric,

The politicians’ machinations,

And find a place of peace,

We will hear the voice of God

As He speaks to us in silence –

Heart to heart.

The Moon

The Moon

Post No 938

.

The mist curls,
Unfurls
Across the face of the Moon.
Strands
Like skeleton hands
Reach out
Blocking the
Lunar light
And night falls silently.

Happy Birthday Richard

Post No. 937

There was such a variety of birds. I believe this is a lilac breasted roller.

In my mind’s eye
I picture you and me
Under a clear blue sky
Spending hours and hours
Running through fields of flowers,
Splashing in waves to our hearts’ content,
Dreams that are heaven-sent,
Dreams that will never end..

God’s Hand

Post No.936

20 August 2016

God’s Hand

Waving flowers like brilliant flags

Dispersing scents on the wind,

Pollen and seeds scattered in the breeze

Aided by the busy little bees.

We breathe in the fragrant air

And watch the bees at work –

Everything runs according to plan

Under the control of God’s guiding hand.

SILENCE

Post No. 935

18 August 2016

Silence

 

Silence is dark, weighs heavy as lead,

Not even a breeze will lighten the load,

Pressing ever downward the weight of my soul

Shading from black, fading to grey,

Tangle of Christ thorns pointing the way.

Missing

Missing

.

Silence blankets the air,

Lies heavily over the earth,

Only a lonely cricket can be heard –

Cr, cr, cr…

A Piet-my-vrou gives two soft calls,

Fading away…

I miss the morning chorus waking the world,

The birds impatiently waiting for the sun to open its eye

And the sky to lighten, brighten…

Greatness

Post No. 933

Greatness

.

Things beyond the pygmy minds of men,

Things we cannot fully comprehend,

Time and eternity,

Conscience and consciousness,

Abstractions, distractions,

Spirit, soul,

And, above all,

The greatness of God.

Thoughts

Hold on to the silver thread

As it winds through thickets of words;

Hold tight with all your might,

Keeping it always in sight

Lest the goal disappears in the mists.

Discontent

Discontent

.

Shepherds have sown the seeds of discontent

And are raising wolves in place of sheep –

Carnivores –

Whose appetites cannot be appeased,

Consumed by the flames of greed.

Live and let live:

The choice is yours,

Live and let live:

The voice is ours;

Do we sacrifice the innocents to pay the price?

Flux

Distant thunder in the north

Mumbling, grumbling…

Wind trumpeting tantrums

Like an actor on the stage,

Calm then rage,

A horse, a horse…

Fetlocks blowing,

Manes aflowing…

The world struggles ‘tween good and evil;

Cloud covers our eyes,

Our ears cannot hear

And nature pleads for calming seas

While rain pisses down on nature’s pleas.
