Feelings

.

As fragile as a petal,
As treasured as a jewel,
As brittle as a crystal,
Feelings…

Wrapped in layers,
Protected from others,
Secreted in covers,
Feelings…

Shielded from harm,
Hopeful and warm
In the cold before dawn,
Feelings…

Faith

.

You and I ~

Earth and sky ~

We can fly

Higher than high…

To the mountain peak,

To the very top,

The roof of the sky,

Drift here and there

On the draughts of air,

Dance in the blue,

Me and You on the moon…

You lift me up

On the golden rays

Of the rising sun

You take my hand,

Make sure I understand,

That faith and trust are one.

Birdsong

.

I think there’s a link between the sunrise
and the blue skies and the birds’ cries.
When I lie in bed I can hear when the sky is clear…
The raucous cries of the larger birds tear me from my sleep,
while the smaller chirps and cheeps try their hardest to compete ~
all this in the darkest night before the sun even shows himself awake ~
but I know, I can tell, a beautiful day awaits.

In the same way, when the birdsong is muted
and the screams have lost their harshness,
I know, I can feel, that a gentle day is in the offing,
perhaps with showers and a softening in the air.

How can any deny our Father when the proof is always there
and nature sings His praises for all the world to hear?
Are we ‘accidental’ beings and our world a chance MIS-take?
It’s preposterous to think that this could be the case!

Escape

.

EsCAPE… exPLORE…

From time immemorial man

has been dissatisfied with the status quo,

but now… has he grown lazy,

too easily pacified, gratified, molified

with his executions of excursions

into the unknown from the planet he calls ‘home’?

Danger, has reared its ugly head. No flying in its face!

All carried out in unreal time, with bits and bytes.

No new frontiers that MATTER (or hard-ly).

When we are forced to vacate this home

where do we go and do we take with us

our selfish-ness, destructive-ness, vicious-ness

to contaminate the future?

If not, how do we leave it behind?

Change is OVERdue…

and if WE don’t/can’t make it ~~

who can?

New Year

.

Out with the old and in with the new

As 2014 comes into view;

Forget the existence of all our mistakes,

Let the past be gone and make a clean break.

But perhaps that’s not quite the way to go ~~

What better way to polish one’s skill

Than to learn from our lives as we travel uphill,

Climbing higher and higher t’wards God in His heaven,

To the lightness and brightness and joy ever after,

Where the air overflows with the music of laughter,

Where One is all and all is One

And we are united with Father and Son.

Beauty and the Beasts

* Edited

.

The camera imitates the eye

Focusing on our surrounds,

Storing for posterity

What we see…

Beauty and the beasts ~

All magnificent to me!

One day, if we don’t take care,

Faded foto’s are all there’ll be

To remind us of what we had ~

In our wonderful world…

Gone bad.

All’s Well?

.

Two a.m. and all’s well,

Christmas hies towards us

Ever faster year on year,

Shops are overflowing fit to burst

But many have no penny in their purse.

Insatiable greed has pushed the goods

Beyond the means of common folk

And many struggle to buy food

But look on helpless while others cream the fat

And steal the grub from out the mouths of babes,

God’s message to us all of love and faith

Forgotten in the struggle to survive.
