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.

Struggle

.

Earth –

Beautiful flower of the universe

A veritable Garden of Eden

Poison ivy slithers in the undergrowth

Profuse and suffocating

A struggle to take breath

To hold onto life

Until death

Retaliation and vengeance

Will not save my soul

Only acceptance will keep me whole

Pavement Special

.

Soulful eyes don’t tell lies
Piteous pleading
Watching waiting
For a kick read my eyes
Poised to run on the turn
Cigarettes BuRN
I have learnt people hurt

Not all are cruel
They are fools
I will teach you how to trust
Feed you with love
So you can rest
I’ll be your guard
We’ll stand against
Our common foe
As one…

God Weeps

.

God weeps

At man’s inhumanity to man

As man cuts a bloody swathe across his own

Evil smiles at his devilish tricks

We must join hands for peace

Bond together to defeat

The evil one whose plans

Are under-hand and under-way

We must not sway from right

Not always easy to tell, but pray

For our Father to show us the path

And learn to harken to His voice

As He gives us the choice

‘Tween good and evil

‘Tween God and the Devil

Trust

.

My trust lies in the dust

trampled underfoot

my soul is exposed

as a worthless part of the heart

revealed as nothing more

and nothing less

than just another word…

I need another world

another space where faith

can teach me to trust again

and not barter trust

for a place in the sun

Beauty

 ~

 There is beauty

In even the most

God forsaken

Desolation

Beauty in

The cold stark lines

Desert sands

Rocks exposed

Rainbow coloured

Layered bands

His mark is there

His name engraved

Etched in time

Emblazoned

In the sky

With every sunrise

Sunset

Giving the lie

He does not forsake

Abandon nor disown

His creations

His works of art

His magnum opus

~

Trust

NEW BLOG AWARDS FROM JINGLE: See bottom of right hand column – Congratulations to all winners! Please help yourselves…

Trust

There can be no trust
Without openness and honesty.
There can be no trust
Without integrity.
*
Trust is the most critical
Element in any relationship.
In partnerships
We need to trust each other;
As citizens of a country
We need to trust our leadership.
When trust breaks down
Then what have we?
The potential for anarchy!
*
There can be no trust
Without openness and honesty.
There can be no trust
Without integrity.

What Happened?

What Happened?

What happened to the sweet innocence of youth?
Where did it go – that newly-opened bloom?
The trust we had has withered and died
And the faith we felt, eroded away with the sands of time.

Would that we could return to those simple years,
Would that we could go back to how we were…
But alas the tears we shed have dried
And our hearts have turned to stone.
