Waiting

Post No. 821

Waiting

.

Wrapped in blankets,

Morning air as cold as ice,

The queue not too long today,

Getting to know the price

Of rising late…

.

Here and there a baby grizzles

But seldom cries – snug

As a bug in the layered rug,

Wrapt against its mother’s breast.

Many have another –

A sister or a brother – holding

Tight, safe and sound on the ground.

.

The line shuffles forward,

Breath condensing, compressing,

And warming the air;

Five minutes more,

Another five minutes

Until they open the door…

History

.

History is a tree with many branches

Laid out by our Father for us to see

Just exactly where we stand,

Without being side-tracked

Or led astray on our way.

We should be meek as lambs,

Innocent and trusting as babes,

Basking in His love and grace,

No airs of arrogance, nor of dominance,

But full of humility;

No second-guessing, but accepting

His will for our lives.

When you gonna see (rap)

Edited

Hey, J-Zee
When you gonna see
Ed-u-cation is the key
We don’t all need
A D-gree
What we want
Is capa-city
To live a life
No strife
Don’t you see
Take our pride
Let us decide
Give us the tools
We not fools
Give us the chance
To sing and dance
Kanye West and Dr Dre
Will let us play
We B A for Away

Waiting for God

~~

In varying phases of readiness
Waiting for God

Adventurers and explorers
At different stages assorted ages
Waiting for God

Retired from this earth
Going to a new birth
Waiting for God

Leaving on a ghost train
Through the tunnel of love
Waiting for God

Travelling down the dark path
Into the bright light
Waiting for God

Diverse faiths some without
Some are weak others stout
Waiting for God

Hallelujah

~~

Waiting…

.

The world is waiting for what comes next;

Even the howling wind holds its breath.

The clouds are black across the sky

And I, with my eyes on the sea below

Watch it boil and recoil as the monster beneath

Twists and turns to escape the grip of the tide

Sucking, pulling, drawing him under,

While the men on deck look on as the sea

Plays its role in helping the whale to flee.

Waiting in the Wings

.

He is here

Waiting in the wings

Every eye shall see Him

And every ear shall hear

The glorious music of His coming

When the veil is peeled

And He is revealed

To the eyes of mortal man

He will descend

On the wings of a dove

Clothed in raiment of purest love

And at last we can

Prostrate ourselves before Him

In utter adoration

At the total liberation of our souls

.

Silver Spangled Dress

Beach Pictures, Images and Photos

Silver Spangled Dress

I dream of dancing
In a silver spangled dress,
The moonlight reflecting,
Holding me in its caress.

I dream of dancing
With the sunlight in my hair,
Splashing in the waves
Without a single care.

Running on the beach
With sand between my toes,
Living in the moment –
Alive, despite my woes.

‘Pride comes before a fall’,
But the fall got in my way;
One can seldom have it all –
Perhaps another day…
