The Star of Christmas Day

You didn't have a home or bed
Your mother wasn't even wed
Your Father wasn't from this earth
And many wondered about your birth

Yet You came for all: You came to love
You weren't aloof though ranked Above
You came to live and walk our way
You are the Star of  Christmas Day

Your place of birth was not a home
You rested where the beasts would roam
The rumors flew from place to place
Your mother dealt with some disgrace

Yet You came for all: You came to love
You weren't aloof, though ranked Above
You came to live and walk our way
You are the Star of Christmas Day

The angels sang of You to all
But those who came were meek and small
The shepard boys the working class
Were the first: to see, to glance

Yet You came for all: You came to love..
You weren't aloof, though ranked Above
You came to live and walk our way
You are the Star of Christmas Day

The wisest kings: the magi clan
Were studing stars and saw God's plan
Opening up for all to see
These magi came and saw Royalty

Yet, You came for all: You came to love..
You weren't aloof, though ranked Above
You came to live and walk our way
You are the Star of Christmas Day

Today we sing and we celebrate
An old tradition, a memoable date
The day You came from Heaven above
To share Your life and give us Love

Yet, You came for all: You came to love..
You weren't aloof, though ranked Above
You came to live and walk our way
You are the Star of Christmas Day

And the hosannas rang out high

In a town not known to all
Lay a baby in a stall
Though He wasn't big or strong
He was adored by the angel throng

And the hosannas rang out high
In the Heavens and through the sky
Born for us: this Infant King
Would be for us: our Everything

Though His dwelling was so poor
And there wasn't a roof or a door
This Immortal warmed us all
By His presence in a stall

And the hosannas rang out high
In the Heavens and through the sky
Born for us: this Infant King
Would be for us: our Everything

Nothing great in Him was seen
Though His Mother kept things clean
Humble creatures warmed His feet
And simple shepards were first to greet

And the hosannas rang out high
In the Heavens and through the sky
Born for us: this Infant King
Would be for us: our Everything

A royal group from way out far
Sought out this Babe, with His own star
Exquisite gifts they all did bring
Offerings fitting for an Immortal King

And the hosannas rang out High
In the Heavens and through the sky 
Born for us: this infant King
Would be for us: our Everything

We are all invited to be
A precious part of this Mystery
Carrying on in our own way
The humble message of Christmas Day

And the hosannas ring out High
In the Heavens and through the sky 
Born for us: this infant King
Would be for us: our Everything

Like a freezer around us

An icy jacket is covering the ground
And an eery silence is echoing around
Crispy crunches are supporting my feet
While a chilling air holds a meet and greet

The birds aren't chirping so loudly today
And a movement of branches is giving them away
Nothing is actively greeting the dawn
But a slew of icycles come out of her yawn

Like a freezer around us the day will begin
Challenging our will power so deep within
Too cold to explore it...this chilliness outside
Yet the pup and I will enjoy the slippery slide.

The clouds above us are all awesomely grey
As they snuggle together to chill up the day
The wind with its might is alll blowing around
And singing how the winter is starting to sound...

So rise up this morning and sleep not too late
For the beauty of dawn has arranged you a date
Peek out of those windows and see all the white
Layered so thinly like a powdery delight..

Wintry wonder

Icy, icy sings the wind
Touching heart and soul within
Whispering secrets of the day
Wintry weather is on its way

Should we run or not at all
It's  too cold to be the Fall
All the trees are sparkling bright
With the sleet from overnight

Would it be so wrong to stay
Inside the warmth of home today
And admire from here inside
All the icy artwork  outside?

Listen carefully if you will
To these moments calm and still
Freezing weather we can hear
If we pause with open ear

When the coldness keeps us in
And our clothing feels too thin
Then we have to snuggle near
All the heat that we have here..

Take a look outside today
If you're in a colder state
And reflect on all you see
There is an  infinite flow of beauty

Changing weather

Tiny rain drops dance around
As the Autumn end does sound
Freezing rain will soon be here
A wintery voice is drawing near

Weather forecast says it's true
Icier weather before day's through
Twas a season warm and fair
Now the chill is in the air

Darker clouds are in the sky
Whispering in the drops that fly
Enjoy this weather before day's through
Temps will chill and challenge you

Signs of winter


Today the breeze is blowing strong
Leaves are floating all day long
Soaring from the trees tops high
Whispering words as they drop by

Sending seed pods everywhere
Dying flowers gladly share
Bidding bye to one and all
Spring will waken seeds that fall

Firm the ground that's under foot
Fireplace burns and feels so good
Wintery breezes sing their song
Time for shorter days not long

Mystic moments

Clouds are lowered all around
Like they're reaching for the ground
Mystic thoughts are quick to flow
How to describe it ... I don't know..

Like a scene from Heaven's gates
A cloudy mist here resonates
Leaving imprints on my mind:
Descriptive words are hard to find

So I ponder it.. here so still
And let its image move my will
To silent song and scenic thought
Till my words appear as ought

If you're willing and will look
Nature will instruct you like a book
Whispering secrets loud and clear
But your soul must lean to hear..

Wintry Rhyme

Golden leaves are covering up the shivering ground
Sounds of winter are whispering secrets all around
Breezes chill and freeze the earth and gazing plants
For it  the season for a wintry song and dance

So we see the earth dressed up in a shabbier brown
And there's a crispness in the grass upon the ground
All the earth is shivering beneath the changing ways
Yet we wil rejoice and give God His due and praise..

For whether it is raining, snowing, or just a simple shine
God is watching over your heart and also   mine
Giving beauty to this earth and everything that is
This what He does for everything exists..is truly His

Hey there lovely Christian...

Hey there lovely Christian you wear your cloak so very well
Yet you behave like someone who is going to the fiery pits of hell
You are preaching love and forgiveness and yet you close up your Christian heart
Hey there lovely Christain why aren't living out your noble part?

So be you fair now lovely Christian and see the world as big and great
Share those offerings and those gatherings:  with every person: for it is late
All the singing and all the shouting  will be as nothing before God's eyes
If the Hallelujahs are all tarnished with the prejudices you rules comprise..

Hey there, lovely Christain, I saw you out there the other day
You were laughing and you were scoffing.. as some people walked your way
There wasn't anything so very funny.. nothing really to draw such mirth
Yet you ridiculed the strange and different: people disfigured from their birth

So be you fair now lovely Christian and see the world as big and great
Share those offerings and those gatherings:  with every person: for it is late
All the singing and all the shouting  will be as nothing before God's eyes
If the Hallelujahs are all tarnished with the prejudices you rules comprise..

Hey there, lovely Christain, why is there such a price tag on your door
You are always collecting the money; yet around you: there are the poor
Who is it.. you are serving...  with alll the moneys you weekly collect
Tell me, tell me, if you're willing: who benefits from that hefty check..?

So be you fair now lovely Christain and see the world as big and great
Share those offerings and those gatherings:  with every person: for it is late
All the singing and all the shouting  will be as nothing before God's eyes
If the Hallelujiahs are all tarnished with the prejudices you rules comprise...

Hey there lovely Christian you're really rocking out, the Holy Word
But who is it you're really serving by all the melodies that get heard?
There are still so  many peoples, who don't get  inside your place
If you're living out your calling:  why doesn't everyone feel your grace

So be you fair now lovely Christian and see the world as big and great
Share those offerings and those gatherings:  with every person: for it is late
All the singing and all the shouting  will be as nothing before God's eyes
If the Hallelujahs are all tarnished with the prejudices you rules comprise..

Hey there lovely Christain who is it now, you're condemning to Hell
Don't you know your Sacred Bible and all the words it seems to tell
The measure you keep on  measuring.. and all the words that come from you
Will be the measure that is measured is served to you when life is through

So be you fair now lovely Christain and see the world as big and great
Share those offerings and those gatherings:  with every person: for it is late
All the singing and all the shouting  will be as nothing before God's eyes
If the Hallelujahs are all tarnished with the prejudices you rules comprise..

Hey there lovely Christian don't feel so bad about what I say
For these words I shout out boldly....are also addressed to me today
For I too am wearing  the title of one who believes in Jesus Christ
But know there is so much more than the tithing and  Sacrifice

So be you fair now lovely Christain and see the world as big and great
Share those offerings and those gatherings:  with every person: for it is late
All the singing and all the shouting  will be as nothing before God's eyes
If the Hallelujahs are all tarnished with the prejudices you rules comprise..

The winter is coming..........

I open my curtains and look out and see
A beautiful frostiness: exquisite as can be
Chilliness is singing and the lovely  birds  too:
The winter is coming; it's coming it's true..

The daylight is starting and I shiver about
The morning is breaking without any doubt
A ruffle of branches and a scuffle on the ground
Tells me the squirrels are hurrying around

Digging and poking for things they have stored
Creatures are searching but never getting bored
Jumping and hopping and wiggling a nose
These rabbits embrace it: the  wind as it blows

The ground is all crinkly and starting to brown
Crystals of iciness are making a gown
The coldness is present at least where we are
The winter is coming both near and both far

How is it, the weather, in the place where you stay?
Is it chilly and frosty or sunny all day?
Does the winter bring snow fights or beaches and sun
The winter will vary but comes for everyone......

Quiet messengers

Ice crystals are dancing as the frosty air sings
Fall will be ending as the wintry weather stings
Yet in all of this coolness, this icyness that's here
A crystallized beauty is announced far and near

For in each icycle danging,  every snowflake that falls
A melody is sounding; an invitation softly calls
From the depths of the universe who sings for us all
God's beauty is everywhere in the great and the small

So whether it is summer, spring, winter or fall
Take time to be open to the universe's gentle call:
That cries out from the silence of the morning or the night
And whispers to us secrets of the Heavenly Father's Light

We won't be disappointed in the passing of the day;
If we remain open and listening to the messages along the way..
Spoken to us from the vastness, of the beauty we see:
God's wisdom is ever present and is echoing for you and me

The day after Thanksgiving

The day after Thanksgiving and what do we see?
People are running as crazy as can be
Shopping and spending and acting "unpoor"
People are pushing their way through the store

This thing or that thing.. "Oh, what should I buy"?
"It's time for great savings: I have to at least try"
So mixed up in the ratrace and running around
The shoppers  are  rushing to see what can be found..

The buggies are filled up and they get into line
Long is their waiting and it's way after nine
The totals are summed up and the cards are pulled out
"Thank God for this plastic".. they inwardly shout

Finally they're home and they're starting to unpack
Wondering and wondering "did I really need that"
Things they have purchased, in the rush of the day,
Were really not needed: Oh, what can we say..

Happy Thanksgiving...

I open my eyes at the start of this day
And think of the blessings that have come on my  way:
Another year passing and a festivity today:
But what is Thanksgiving: oh, what do you say

Is it a feasting and a gathering around?
Cooking long hours, a fammily in town?
Is it a remembering; an accounting of all
What is Thanksgiving as you can recall?

Year after year in this country of ours
Thanksgiving has gathered us from near and from far
The same type of menu: the laughter..the cheer
Repeats every November.. as we gather right here...

Was it about celebrating or was it a feast
Who were there present: the greatest ..the least?
Why do we remember it and  what is it about
Can you tell  me why this holiday brings everybody out??

Whatever your understanding ,,,whatever you say
One thing is certain: it's Thanksgiving day
There must be a reason... beyond what we know
What if today...our understanding could grow..

Look up all of  the history and read an account
Of natives and pilgrims who were gathering around
It went beyond households and people they knew
Thanksgiving gathered everyone and this is the truth

So when you are celebrating with  family around
Remember the homeless and lonely homebound
Reach out in some fashion and some kindly ole way
If you should encounter them this Thanksgiving day

Wintry weather

Icy crystals on the ground
Chilly whispers start to sound
From the ground so cold and white
Frozen figures greet the light

Just a moment out the door
And the coldness chills us sore
Quickly moving here and there
It's too cold to breathe this air

Hard to think that Fall is here
When the coldness holds us near
Warmness comes but runs away
For the chill has final say..

Bundle up outside and in
Freezing weather is here again
Don't be foolish for it's true
Flu and colds can get hold of you..

Love's golden rule...

God sees all colors but sees no skin
He goes much deeper ..and  looks within
He is Almighty and yet He's  here
Our Heavenly Father holds each one dear

So we should all run now: run to Him
He will embrace us: despite what's been
He is no monster, and He is no fool
He has one requirement: love's golden rule...

Sometimes we try to make others see:
What we are thinking: God should be
But we're mistaken; far from right:
God cannot be limited by our poor sight

So we should all run now: run to Him
He will embrace us: despite what's been
He is no monster, and He is no fool
He has one requirement: love's golden rule...

There are no boundaries.. no restrictions there:
God is all welcoming and hears all prayer.
He isn't a biggot and He isn't  a fool
He keeps on begging:  live love's golder rule

So we should all run now: run to Him
He will embrace us: despite what's been
He is no monster, and He is no fool
He has one requirement: love's golden rule...

You're thinking:  you know Him, and maybe you do;
But, knowing isn't everything:  if you're untrue
So you must be showing that inner fuel
That shows to  everyone: love's golden rule

So we should all run now: run to Him
He will embrace us: despite what's been
He is no monster, and He is no fool
He has one requirement: love's golden rule...

Lessons from last evening...

In the evening, before the sunset, what a wonderful sound I could hear
Hundreds of birds were singing, a song for my listening ear..
I used to think, that the morning, was the most beautiful time of day;
Till I stepped outside, last evening; and heard the musical array...

Sounds, so beautiful, so healing; so soothing and crystal clear:
Were echoing across the universe: so wonderful it was to hear...
The peacefulness, of that symphony; the awesomeness, of that sound;
Reminded me that: we are all so beloved;: so blessed by God all around

The days can become so very monotonous; and the hours and minutes too much ..
But, we have for our constant revival: the Eternal One's, regenerating touch:
Present in all of the creatures and plantlets; present in everything that is around:
We have only, to stop, to receive it: the respite and the healing sound..

A world that is stressed

Can you not hear it:  the earth, how she's crying
People, all over, are fighting and dying...
Earth is all shaken: she's shivering and quaking
Storm clouds and whirlwinds: their warnings are making

And we go on hating and denying the obvious
The world we were given is suffering so much awfulness
Energies we are exuding are creating an unrest
Universal sighings are emerging from a world that is stressed

People are breaking up, what we should be healing
And the newscast and media are embellishing their revealing
Warring amongst the nations and the families and the peoples
Has undone all the peace time that was promised beneath steeples

And we go on hating and denying the obvious
The world we were given is suffering so much awfulness
Energies we are exuding are creating an unrest
Universal sighings are emerging from a world that is stressed

Listen and ponder and be still enough to hear this
The Heavens and the angels and the Eternal One are offering bliss
But looking on our earth and seeing us, in  our fighting
Has left them to  wonder about  these soundings... so biting...

And we go on hating and denying the obvious
The world we were given is suffering so much awfulness
Energies we are exuding are creating an unrest
Universal sighings are emerging from a world that is stressed

Grace

Rays of sunlight on my face
Sing the song of amazing grace
Flowing freely; flowing now
God is present here somehow

Breezes rushing through the trees
Carrying a wisdom no one sees
Touching lightly far and near
Winds are echoing: God is here

Silently whispering everywhere
Creatures rise and are aware:
That their Maker.. ever dear
Gives them everything: He is here..

Morning, evening, dark of night
God is present with His light
Giving Presence.. ...giving love
Lifting all our acts above..

As His children.. we must do
Everything He's wanting us to:
Fleeing hatred; avoiding greed;
Giving everyone what they need...

Chillier weather

Frosty images dance around
In the air and on the ground
Chilling plantlets chilling all
Where they rest or where they fall

Autumn breezes freeze and chill
Touching heart and touching will
Warmer weather has run away
Icier images: here to stay

Morning showers chill, its true
But their sound is soothing too
Soaking earth and all the plants
All these raindrops encourage dance

Count the droplets. count them all
Every raindrop, as it falls..
Bringing healing bringing sound
Healing moisture all around...

Visit to the ocean

 Waves are slowly rolling in
Carrying life from deep within:
 Soothing, sounding in their call:
 They bring  peace to one and all

 Morning light is not yet seen.,
Only sounds of ocean serene :
Greet the listener and the earth;
Who await the new day’s birth

Close my eyes, just want to hear
All the music, far and near:
Oceans medley and the cries
Of the birds who soar the skies

Days of resting..near the shore
Who could want for something more?
God’s, own rhythm, speaks out loud
Quiets the noise and quiets the crowd

A day that's just for you

I know all that you're thinking and all that you're wishing for
I have seen you when you're praying and when you're at the store
The morning's have had you rushing and the evening's are busy too
My wish for you, My dearest, is a day that's just for you...

Your kindness has been all over and you make time for all you see
Whether someone is needing your insight or your time consistently
You're unselfish and all embracing and ready to give it's true
But my wish for you, My dearest, is a day that's just for you..

So when the time has come open and you're ready to take that day
Don't feel it's being,  any way, selfish: to run and get away
For you're always  on call and giving,, despite the cost, its true
So I'm wishing for you, My dearest, a day that's just for you..


Tuesday, November 7, 2017

Let me help you

I can feel it deep inside
All the sorrows that you hide
Seeming strong but really not
Don't become what hurt has brought

In your eyes and in your soul
Broken pieces all aglow
Speak of suffering speak of pain
Let me help you..don't refrain

Hours, moments: passing by
Quietly sighing: never cry
Bold and beautiful you have been
Depsite the suffering deep within

All has ended but the fear
Captive prisoner ever dear
Let me help you: free you now
Break those chains of hurt somehow

Yes it's painful every day
Triggerings words can come our way
Morning evening, dark of night
Let God's angels bring you light

Prisoners of PTSD...

For sufferers of  PTSD 


Memories keep replaying here
In my mind I always hear
Words and moments of those days
When my life was but a maze

And its you I always see
Towering hovering over me
Cannot stop it all this pain
PTSD still remains

Sounds and actions night and day
Seem to shout and seem to say
Remember this and remember that
Swinging belt and swinging bat?

And its you I always see
Towering, hovering over me
Cannot stop it: all this pain
PTSD still remains

You were monstrous never feared
Shouting yelling in my ear
Shameless hateful flinging might
Never stopping day or night

And its you I always see
Towering, hovering over me
Cannot stop it: all this pain
PTSD still remains..

When the others shake their head
Over actions, hurt has bred..
Suffering opens up again
They aren't able to see within...

And its you I always see
Towering, hovering over me
Cannot stop it: all this pain
PTSD still remains..

So I beg you..when you see
Someone suffering: same as me
Do not judge; them do not flee
From the prisoners of  PTSD..

And its you I always see
Towering, hovering over me
Cannot stop it: all this pain
PTSD still remains..

Sutherland Springs Church Shooting

Broken pieces of our lives scattered all around
On the tiles beneath this roof a cry of death does sound
Gathered here to worship God and to our God we went
A mad man entered here today: allowed his sin to vent

No one knew this day would see a river flowing red
From the place where people prayed and shared communal bread
But it happened all too quick without a warning clear
Someone with a mind of hate brought eternity to us here.

Some are gone, and some have stayed: to carry on the faith
But, we mustnt wonder, in God's eyes: what will be his fate
Gunning down so many souls who gathered there to  pray
Foolishness has its reward ..and darkness has its day

To the families affected there:  drenched by sorrows deep
Know our God will rescue you:  from tears you shed and weep
He's our Hope; our Constant now:  He's the One we praise
Trust Him with your brokenness and He will heal your days

The angels are weeping...

Tenderly caring for and wooing us all:
The Eternal Omnipotent always will call
Chiding and hastening to bring us all near
Hear oh My children.. I beg you all hear..

But we with our wanderings and we with our ways
Ignored all His pleadings and refused Him our praise
We ran with the fleeting and the Eternal sought not
Angels keep weeping over all we have bought

The mornings the evenings we see Him: His glow
Sunlight and moonlight will share what they know
Creatures and created and minerals galore
Shout out the secrets that we're looking for..

But we with our wanderings and we with our ways
Ignored all His pleadings and refused Him, our praise
We ran with the fleeting and the Eternal sought not
Angels keep weeping over all we have bought...

People are pausing but not for the Lord
Spending time gazing on things they can't afford
Priceless and lasting are what He can give
Why can't we see it:  the life we could live?

But we with our wanderings and we with our ways
Ignored all His pleadings and refused Him, our praise
We ran with the fleeting and the Eternal sought not
Angels keep weeping over all we have bought...

And be, you, a beacon...

Today is the day to start life anew
Decide at this moment what you will do
Take time to notice take time to love
Love every person like God from above..

And be, you, a beacon; be you God's grace
Brighten each area; light up each place..
Sing of God's mercies; sing of God's care:
Be you the answer, to some person's prayer...

Someone is lonely; and someone needs you.
Take time to help them: do what you can do.
Smile and be caring; love and be kind.
You are the healing for someone's sore mind.

And be, you, a beacon; be you God's grace
Brighten each area; light up each place..
Sing of God's mercies; sing of God's care:
Be you the answer, to some person's prayer...

Outside or inside, night time or day
Look for the needy one who walks by your way
Judge not by appearances and give without greed
Be forever loving: live what you believe

And be, you, a beacon; be you God's grace
Brighten each area; light up each place..
Sing of God's mercies; sing of God's care:
Be you the answer, to some person's prayer...

How reporters groom you...

It shouldn't be normal to start off the day
With gossip and headlines that sling mud our way
Yet often, we're brainwashed, from morning till night...
Turn off that newscast, and see things aright..

Nothing, that's spoken, on  media or air..
Is truthful or honest or even near fair;
Yet, we stare  with amazement and loyalty so true:
At CNN, Yahoo, and news..coming through..

Warping our thinking, without any delay:
We sit before newscast: each morning, each day..
Drinking in theories and subscribing to all
Are anchors our heroes: we heed them..their call?

Something is spooky,about how we believe:
Words, from some person, who is primed to deceive:
Yet, daily we do it, without much ado
Think, if you're willing,  how reporters groom you...

The unspoken speaks to me

Early, before the sunrise, before the world begins to sing
Silence is softly speaking in each element leaves its ring
Whispering to the listeners and enlightening all who see
Before the dawn is broken the unspoken speaks to me..

While the darkness is lingering:  before the break of day
Molecules are combining and each atom rises to say
Secretly there is greatness in the humble and the small
Though you may never see them their presence affects us all..

Somber is the moment when the bright star of our way
Breaks through all the darkness and shares its own array
Warming up every creature and touching us and the world
The sun is so magnificient we bask in its warmth unfurled

Before you venture forward into your work or day
Listen for a few moments and hear what life can say
Write it down in your memory or in your blog compose
Something for us the readers: a simple line or prose

Night lights

Did you notice, did you see it. .that little sparklet in the sky
Way up there inside the darkness lighting up ..for you and I
Brightly beaming but not speaking; yet having words for us to hear
In the silence of the evening a star is singing: it is clear..

Like a backdrop in the theater the blackened sky supports the theme
As we're gazing up in wonder we can hear the cosmos scream
Not with noises or with voices or wih sounds that touch the ear
But with energies so amazing: we're amazed at how we hear..

Like the silence of the ocean before the waves begin to rise
So the silence of the evening beckons us with inward cries
Look and listen see and ponder touch the secrets of this night
In the darkness of the night time God still whispers .. I am Light..

The beauty angels see

The quietness, the stillness, the first break of morn
Echoes a certain peacefulness  from Where our goodness is born
The tenderness and tranquility speaks through leaves and wind
And all the plants and creatures rise..singing "it's day again"

Like powder puffs, all floating: the clouds so way up high
Wave at us and invite us: to imagine that we could fly
Without the aid of airplanes or hellicopters or machines
Imagine if you could and know... this is how our spirit leans

We restrict ourselves by busy-ness and load ourselves with worry
If we could stop a moment yes..if we wouldn't have to hurry
We'd see the heights that we could soar and even touch beyond
Everything our eyes could see: we'd dance in Heaven's pond

But we haven't time to ponder it or time to think or soar
We crowd ourselves with activity and look for even more
Not knowing that, indirectly, we are snuffing out our light
Trading it for lesser things, that never bring us sight

Oh if we could understand and feel within that joy
That comes from letting go of all:  no bombshell could destroy..
Wouldn't it be so wonderful then... so inexpressibly pure
To know the beauty angels see and stay there safe and sure?

Autumn breezes

Frosty sprinkles on the ground
Coolness in the air around
Autumn breezes are so chill
They will freeze you: yes they will

Like a burst of arctic air
Morning brings us quite a share:
Chillier temps to start the day..
It is cold in every way

Dress up warmly, Fall is here
Seems like Winter.. it is clear...
But the day will warm up right
Till it does; don't dress too light!!

Colds and sneezes are in line
To make appearance, just in time:
For the season of the flu;
Autumn brings this all: it's true...

The things we forgot...

You are working so hard you put in the time
But you haven't a moment to jot down some rhyme
You pile up the hours and you're building the green
But when can you enjoy it,  you know what I mean?

You have a great casa, a mansion, a house
It's clean as a whistle..too clean for a mouse
Yet when can you enjoy it with all that you do
Back out of this hustle and enjoy being you

It's true we must plan for.. the time we're not well
But who said our working should give us such "hell"
We're tired out, exhausted, no energy to breathe
Each day we repeat it.. our spirits all grieve

The ratrace.. the jiggle.. the hunger for more
Leaves all empty when leaving the store
But who is determining what happiness is
Out tvs are telling us: money is.. bliss

What if not having is the  secret to fun...
And working was something we did and were done?
If night time would greet us and we could all smile
Share something hilarious and laugh for awhile??

But we have become programmed to run and to run:
Even at night time our work is not done
We can't even focus on those who are around
Because money is calling and soothing is its sound...

Some day we will get it like never before
And find out our happiness doesn't come from a store
That money is needed but not a whole lot
We will finally discover the things we forgot...

And the world is truly one...

The sun is dancing on my face
As I breathe  amazing grace
Breezes echo something dear
A hundred million songs I hear

And the world is truly one
Though apart we share  one sun
And each breath that we will breathe
Comes from One; from One we receive

Through all the miles and in all time
We're knit together in God Sublime
Colors, sounds, and cultures too:
We are but one, both me and you

And the world is truly one
Though apart we share one sun
And each breath that we will breath
Comes from One; from One we receive

Have you seen it do you know
How each creature starts to grow
In each being and in each plant
God's own Spirit starts to chant

And the world is truly one
Though apart, we share one sun
And each breath that we will breathe
Comes from One, from One we receive

Warring, fighting affects us all
Every heartache, every fall
Yet we act like we aren't one
So we see what this has done

And the world is truly one
Though apart, we share one sun
And each breath that we will breathe
Comes from One, from One we receive

Beneath the skin, the flesh,the hair
God's own Spirit is dwelling there
And the shame that we contrive:
We fail to see Him.. in all alive

And the world is truly one
Though apart, we share one sun
And each breath that we will breathe
Comes from One, from One we receive

Without fanfare or drums

The skies open up; and the Heavens are before us
Softly the angels let out their sure chorus
Millions of beings from the Heavens above
Sing out most clearly: that God wants our love

But we with our stubbornness pretend we can't see
God must be hiding from all humanity
How can we love Him if He doesn't appear
We know what you're saying but He hasn't come here...

People who are broken and some who are not
Seek for our comfort: for things that we got
But, we with our reasoning, will act without care
We turn to each other and pretend they're not there

But we with our  stubbornness pretend we can't see
God must be hiding from all humanity
How can we love Him; if He doesn't appear
We know what you're saying but He hasn't come here

We have our agendas, our schedules to keep
Don't bother us now; we can't even speak
The best time to reach us is when we're at home
But sometimes we're missing when movies are shown

But we with our stubbornness pretend we can't see
God must be hiding from all humanity
How can we love Him; if He doesn't appear
We know what you're saying but He hasn't come here

The family's the circle for all things to grow
But business and working has broken this flow
Overtime and meetings and things we must do
Has shortened this time with our loved ones it's true

But we with our stubbornness pretend we can't see
God must be hiding from all humanity
How can we love Him; if He doesn't appear
We know what you're saying but He hasn't come here

We're wondering what happened, to things we once knew:
The birds and the flowers and the plantlets that grew...
Somehow we've lost it: the ability to feel
And succumbed to the ratrace, which has imprisoned our will

But we with our stubbornness pretend we can't see
God must be hiding from all humanity
How can we love Him; if He doesn't appear
We know what you're saying but He hasn't come here

In  the silence of  morning and the whispers of night;
Angels keep telling us, to return to what's right...
But we, with our thinking, and our reasoning inside
Have traded  away Heaven for the voices outside

But we with our stubbornness pretend we can't see
God must be hiding from all humanity
How can we love Him; if He doesn't appear
We know what you're saying but He hasn't come here

The stillness of Eternity and the wisdom of God
Keeps calling out softly where ever we trod
We haven't been left out... we still have some time
Pay heed every listener, to the words of this rhyme

But we with our stubbornness pretend we can't see
God must be hiding from all humanity
How can we love Him; if He doesn't appears
We know what you're saying but He hasn't come here

Our God, He is present, yes present right now
But we have become blinded by activities somehow
It's not only on Sundays or Sabbaths He comes
But He's with us forever:  without fanfare or drums..

But we with our stubborn ess pretend we can't see
God must be hiding from all humanity
How can we love Him; if He doesn't appear
We know what you're saying but He hasn't come here

Autumn air

Cool and frosty, Autumn air
Chills the bones beyond compare
Painting pictures icy bright
Nippy winds create a sight

Sun beams warm but I can't feel
All their warmness in this chill
Beautiful streams creating steam
Emerges from the sunlight's seam

Crispy crinkles beneath my feet
Whisper coolness so discreet
Icy images make a parade
Leaving artwork: short displayed

 In my home or when outside
Autumn whispers deep inside
Painting pictures making rhyme
Every season colors time

Look and listen

Sunlight dancing on my  sill
Bringing beauty: calm and still
Warming rays so bright and true
How we love you: yes we do...

Winds are whispering: soft and free
Never know where they  might be..
Carrying messages: far and wide
All is  heard, from deep inside

Flowers blooming; plants are too
Giving energy, it is true
All  united in God's grace
With the universe and its space

Dark descends with coming night
Nothing's clear as in the light
But the sounds and sights unseen
Brings us mystery..all agree

Look and listen; hear and see
All around:  serenity
In the creatures in the air
So much God-ness everywhere

I am here...

Through these storms and all your hurt
I will be here: rest assured
Through these turmoils and unrest
I'll be waiting your request

Know I see it, all your pain
Every heartache all the rain
I am waiting; yes it's clear
You can call Me; I am here.

In those moments of surpise
When clouds are blocking all your skies
I am here with Light Divine
Call Me trust Me; you are Mine.

Know I see it: all your pain;
Every heartache, all the rain..
I am waiting; yes it's clear
You can all Me; I am here

Friends are fickle; yes it's true
But I'm always a friend for you
Nothing changes Me:  not at all
You can trust I'll hear your call

Know I see it: all your pain;
Every heartache, all the rain..
I am waiting; yes it's clear
You can all Me; I am here

Now, at morning; or at night
I am present with My Light
When you call me or cannot
I be watching.. for I am God

Know I see it: all your pain;
Every heartache, all the rain..
I am waiting; yes it's clear
You can all Me; I am here

What are those teardrops in your eyes?

What are those diamonds in your eyes
Tiny teardrops small in size
Who has caused them; let me see
I'll release them: set them free

Like a downpour from the sky
Droplets flowing from your eye
Tell me secrets without words
Inspire my hands to type in verse

What are those diamonds in your eyes
Tiny teardrops small in size
Who has caused them; let me see
I'll release them: set them free

In the morning time; it's clear
Sighing sobbing I did hear
Hearts unfolding like a rhyme
Soak the soul and startle time

What are those diamonds in your eyes
Tiny teardrops small in size
Who has caused them; let me see
I'll release them: set them free

Broken moments kept inside
Tear the heart and stifle pride
Something precious something deep
Echoes through the heart that weeps

What are those diamonds in your eyes
Tiny teardrops small in size
Who has caused them; let me see
I'll release them: set them free

Let me spend some time with you
Hear your sorrows help you through
Then you'll know as you are known
Love is best when love is shown

What are those diamonds in your eyes
Tiny teardrops small in size
Who has caused them; let me see
I'll release them: set them free

So much tragedy

In those eyes I see
So much tragedy
Memories of that day
All was taken away

Tears are falling down
Splashing all around
Moistening all the air
Raindrops everywhere

In those eyes I see
Horror and tragedy
Memories of that day
All was taken away

Bloodshed in the streets
No more inner peace
From that room so high
Many were made to die

In those eyes I see
So much tragedy
Memories of that day
All was taken away

The day after it occured
Eyes are still so blurred
Head is full of pain
Scars inside remain

In those eyes I see
Horror and tragedy
Memories of that day
All was taken away

We cannot bring them back
From this horrendous act
Only hearts can heal
From this pain so real

In those eyes I see
Horror and tragedy
Memories of that day
All was taken away

With you I will stay
Though, so far away
Hoping time will soothe
Every hurt remove

In those eyes I see
Horror and tragedy
Memories of that day
All was taken away

Oh, Las Vegas...

My heart is breaking and am sighing
As I feel each soul that's dying
Hard to inhale it: labored breathing
Every departing soul:  perceiving

Oh, Las Vegas how much sorrow 
Long the wait until tomorrow
Bodies broken, families crying:
Watching loved ones bruised and dying

Country music riddled with bullets
Changes hope into endurance
From the windows passed a sentence
From a mad man without repentance

Oh  Las Vegas how much sorrow 
Long the wait until tomorrow
Bodies broken families crying
Watching loved ones bruised and dying

Can I cope with this connection
My soul's leaning in that direction..
In the hospitals and their homes too
So much sorrow is coming on through

Oh. Las Vegas, how much sorrow
Long the wait until tomorrow
Bodies broken, families crying
Watching loved ones, bruised dying

In Las Vegas, Early Morn

After midnight cries sound out
"There's a shooter, many shout"
In Las Vegas, early morn
Bullets flew and lives were torn

And we hear it once again
Terror started from within
Heartless things we see
America suffers a tragedy

Who'd imagine, this could be
All this bloodshed that we see
Lovely city soaked in blood
From the rooftops came this flood

And we hear it once again
Terror started from within
Heartless things we see
America suffers a tragedy

People running here and there
Screaming, crying, everywhere
Young ones, old ones, in between
Chaos created: Las Vegas' scene

And we hear it once again
Terror started from within
Heartless things we see
America suffers a tragedy

For the families suffering now
Healing moments I wish somehow
Nothing can undo your  pain
But my prayers with you'll  remain

And we hear it once again
Terror started from within
Heartless things we see
America suffers a tragedy

You will know the miraculous

Touch all the molecules and count all the sand
See every element in the ground where  you stand
Gaze upon the universe and hear all of the sky
Something has been whispered in the clouds passing by

Up in the morning light and down in the earth
Beautifulness is brewing from the moments giving birth
All that is  is before us and everything that is not
Echoes a great mystery: "Some things cannot be bought".

Early in the waking hours and late into the night
Angels are forever here: bringing souls their light
Nothing is ever forever here; but forever is a thing
Take a hold of what is light but flee the evil sting

If you are a earnest soul; seeking  all that  is right
You will know a peacefulness and have unaltered sight
Nothing will persuade you from the  Inner Light within
You will know the miraculous each day that you begin

Look to your heart

Look to your heart I say: Look to your heart:
This wide world of ours, is falling apart

Instead of making peace; we are all making war
We cannot learn to love.. when wrong's what we're looking for
Ideologies are popping up; circulating  around today
They promise happiness; but divide peoples along the way

Look to your heart I say: look to your heart:
This wide world of ours, is falling apart

Protesters line the streets and are holding up their signs
They'll protest what's wrong; but stir up rebellious lines?
We claim we're righting wrongs; we're  equality all the way
Yet, what of those properties, we're destroying every day?

Look to your heart I say; look to your heart
This wide world of ours, is falling apart

There are people in our lives; people along our way
We aren't even noticing them; we don't give them the time of day
But we're all Godfearing souls.. we read the most holy book
Yet, where does it say, my friend..we should be applying such a look?

Look to your heart I say; look to your heart
This wide world of ours, is falling apart

If we're really seeking love; love's what we  need to be
Giving to everyone without any sign of partiality
True greatness isn't ever bought; its not what others give
It comes from within ourselves and rewards how we live..

Look to your heart I say; look to your heart
This wide world of ours, is falling apart

You don't have to carry those burdens alone...

I know that you're hurting; I know how you feel
Things that you're saying..are all of them real
Life sometimes has thrown you the most bitter pill
Memories keep replaying: you're heart feels them still

No, you don't have to carry these burdens alone
Friends are just waiting to lift what you've known
Hardships and heartbreaks can be awfully unfair
Yet friends are forever and willing to share

Time after time you have said your goodbyes
Watched the departures with tears in your eyes
Walking through moments  you can't understand
Heaven's still watching just reach out your hand

No, you don't have to carry these burdens alone
Friends are just waiting to lift what you've known
Hardships and heartbreaks can be awfully unfair
Yet friends are forever and willing to share

There's wisdom in timing; but it isn't yet time
For the love you're awaiting to write you a rhyme
The tear drops, the sighing, the wondering why
Will all become  blossoms when the moment is ripe

No, you don't have to carry these burdens alone
Friends are just waiting to lift what you've known
Hardships and heartbreaks can be awfully unfair
Yet friends are forever and willing to share

The love of God is what it's about

The sun peeks through the sky above:
Whispering secrets, whispering love.
All the world, is still fast asleep:
Only the crickets and possums creep

The wind is sounding so softly today.
Nothing tumultuous is on the way...
Birds are waiting for greater light
To sing their songs of happy sight

Calmness is echoing throughout the land.
Nothing noisy is taking a stand.
Only a screen , of morning fog,
Makes an appearance and makes this blog.

The leaves on trees,that stand around;
Are starting to shake and touch the ground.
Feathery creatures are readying to sing:
Chirping commences and the elements ring.

The songs of morning,  that sound outside
Are inviting us all to consider inside:
The beauties, the wonders, the love of God;
That blesses each moment and path we trod

If we have profited from this scene,
Of morning soliloquies, so serene:
We should want to dance and shout
"The love of God is what it's about"

Oh Puerto Rico, lovely island

The waters have now flooded the Island of Puerto Rico
Maria the awfulest Hurricane has done more than we can know
The people of this nation are now looking to the rest
To assist them and help them: as recovering is their quest

Oh Puerto Rico, lovely island, where have you disappeared?
The waters and the wind storms have done what we have feared
Your nation is now soaked in the Atlantic and Caribbean
The sirens now silenced had warned us of what we're seeing

An ominous sound of silence and the creaking of the buildings
Whisper to the listener... there's a tragedy that's unyielding
Inside the shattered structures and below the shrinking waters
Are memories of a nation that will affect its sons and daughters

Oh Puerto Rico, lovely island, where have you disappeared?
The waters and the wind storms have done what we have feared
Your nation is now soaked in the Atlantic and Caribbean
The sirens now silenced have warned us of what we're seeing

You are not alone there; for, all the world is waiting,
For ways that we can help you; in this dilemma escalating...
Though, you are so inaccessible, to the hands, that want to help you:
We, the world, will rise up and assist you it is true..

Oh Puerto Rico lovely island where have you disappeared
The waters and the wind storms have done what we have feared
Your nation is now soaked in the Atlantic and Caribbean
The sirens now silenced had warned us of what we're seeing

Nobody wins in war

While some people talk about destruction and war
Angels from Heaven are pleading and implore:
Put away this fighting and put away these guns
Death's not the answer to these terroristic runs

Because so many innocents would die in a war
We'd say that we're winning while blood fills earth's floor
If even one person should die out of hate
Torrents would rush out from the Eternal One's gate....

The mighty and furious are aiming to fight
Boasting and promising to make everything right
But pointing your missels and shaking your fists
Would only be stimulants that put everyone at risk...

Because so many innocents would die in a war
We'd say that we're winning while blood fills earth's floor
If even one person should die out of hate
Torrents would rush out from the Eternal One's gate....

The anxious and unstable one is creating a scene
He's pounding his podium.... and appearing so mean
If only we'd see it: the reason for this all
North Korea is struggling in each missel that falls

Because so many innocents would die in a war
We'd say that we're winning while blood fills earth's floor
If even one person should die out of hate
Torrents would rush out from the Eternal One's gate....

The weather we create

Can we not see it and are we still blind:
How all of our actions are affecting mankind
Our hating and fighting; our happiness; our cheer:
Everything's affecting the whole atmosphere

So why can't we be loving and why can't we share
Why are we so selective when showing our care
Everyone is equal and everyone deserves love
Can we not see it.. what these storms are made of?

The earth from its core; and the sky from its dome
Is shaking and rumbling,while the oceans all roam..
It's not for our punishment; and its not for our death..
It's we, who release, the catastrophes that spread

So why can't we be loving and why can't we share
Why are we so selective, when showing we care?
Everyone is equal; and everyone deserves love
Can we not see it... what these storms are made of?

The other day, when driving, and thinking unkind
Did we ever consider: how we're able to  unwind..
The bound up brutal energies that  crush all around:
In every single wind storm.. our arguing is found?

So why can't we be loving and why can't we share
Why are we so selective, when showing we care?
Everyone is equal; and everyone deserves love
Can we not see it... what these storms are made of??

We're, all of us, connected and we're, all of us, all,  one
Whenever one is defeated.the rest of us are undone...
We choose to be happiness or we choose to be fear
But remember our choices affect everyone here...

So why can't we be loving and why can't we share
Why are we so selective, when showing we care?
Everyone is equal; and everyone deserves love
Can we not see it... what these storms are made of??

Have you ever noticed..

Early the hours when the first squirrel appears
Nibbling and jumping and wiggling his ears..
Peering and poking through seeds on the ground
Romping and playing and jumping around..

Softly the breezes are touching the trees
Creatures with feathers will delight us and please
Chirping and singing and looking about
Birds of all colors will sing but not shout

Fluffy white powder puffs are gracing the sky
Storm clouds are missing but soon will say 'hi"
The weather is changing with the energies that loom
Soon we will hear them: the clouds that go "boom".

Have you ever noticed it: this first light of morn
Tried to engage it or watched as it's borne..?
Truly its hours; its minutes; and its time:
Is creating some pictures and some verses for rhyme

Creatures remind us of God's love

There's a soothing symphony of crickets gracing this early morn
Sounding out their remedies: they can heal the bruised and torn
Rythmically they are playing..that familiar melody
That echoes through the daylight and wakens you and me.

The insects know their place
They serenade us with their grace
Like the showers from the Heavens above
Creatures remind us of God's love

Like the sounding of  many  cymbals or the ringing of tambourines
A hundred thousand crickets are creating  these soothing scenes
Quieting down,so slowly, as light of dawn ascends
These happy little chirpers, disappear like the passing trends..

The insects know their place
They serenade us with their grace
Like the showers from the Heavens above
Creatures remind us of God's love

All of a sudden, you cannot hear them: the new day is  fully here
Other sounds are now replacing them, till evening; it is clear
Like the changing of the shadows, from the sun so magnificently high
These creatures will sleep, in nature, till daylight becomes the night

The insects know their place
They serenade us with their grace
Like the showers from the Heavens above
Creatures remind us of God's love

We are the storm

Do you not know that we're able to  disrupt the beauty of the  world that we see
That we who are fighting are the ones who are creating this disruptive energy
Though we may be unnable to see it: how we're the stimulus for our own tragedy
All of us are interconnected; and part of our own peace and our own  insecurity

So what are we doing in this world of ours today?
Are we creating the beautifulness or the tragedy along our way
Are we setting up the backdrop that will lower down from the heights above
And release to us the energies we have created from our hatred or our love

The mountains, they shutter, and the winds are all blowing all around
Hurricanes and earthquakes and catastrophes are making known their sound
Fires are breaking out and the oceans are taking leave from their watery place
Are we not able to understand how we are  the instigators of all this disgrace

So what are we doing in this world of ours today?
Are we creating the beautifulness or the tragedy along our way
Are we setting up the backdrop that will lower down from the heights above
And release to us  the energies we have created from our hatred or our love

Talk to the plants and see how quickly they  respond to attention that you give
If you become negligent: they will give up on their own desire to live
So it is with our own energies that we  disperse in every time and place:
Kindness and goodness  carry peacefulness will arguing disbands the human race

So what are we doing in this world of ours today?
Are we creating the beautifulness or the tragedy along our way
Are we setting up the backdrop that will lower down from the heights above
And release to us  the energies we have created from our hatred or our love

Florida headlines

The windy storm Irma hit Florida today
In this beautiful state  she was having her sway
Spinning and churning and covering it all:
Angels all  gasped at the sound of her squall.

Buildings were toppled and  houses fell in
Neighborhoods sank in the whirl of her wind
Storm after storm spun out of her waves
Our dear sister state, Florida, was left in a daze

The quieting has brought us to a devastating cry
From those who remained and breathed their last sigh
The coastlines were flooded and changed how we see
The dear state of Florida ripped up by tragedy














Friday, September 8, 2017

And earth shouts out

Be still and listen, to this changing  air
Sighs and soundings are everywhere
Floodings are found in desert spaces
Quakes are shaking so many places

And earth shouts out what angels sing:
God is speaking through everything

The oceans  shake, beneath the wind
They roar and rumble, while coming in
Coasts drop off and they are seen no more
Hearts are broken, and are wounded sore..

And earth shouts out what angels sing:
God is speaking through everything

Bitter rivals raise   their fists in war
Missles fly and rest on earthen floor
Peoples wonder what this can mean:
Sights are clear but the truth unseen ?

And earth shouts out what angels sing;
God is speaking through everything

Time to change while time's still here
Listen long; make haste to hear
Heaven is speaking through Mother Earth
Return, return to your soul's rebirth

And earth shouts out what angels sing:
God is speaking through everything

Run from her now...


Irma is approaching the US shore
Carrying winds and so much more
Having the memory of Harvey's wrath
We should be worrying about her path

Water and flooding and a great wide wind
Irma  is coming and is about to begin
Destruction and terror and upset she'll bring
Nothing can withstand her poisonous sting

Run from her now for there is still time
Pitiful the words that'll follow this rhyme
Relentless and forceful she will proceed
Creating great havoc and tragedy...



Monday, September 4, 2017

Love is what's needed

Clear out your heart and make room for love
Showered like manna from the Heavens above
No room for hatred, for jealousy, for war:
Love is what's needed to settle the score..

Bring out your  kindness; put away the hate
People don't like it: this news, as of late..
Threats of the nuclear; and floodings galore:
Love is what's needed to settle the score..

Politics is all dirty; news is on fire
Things go unnoticed and life is so dire
Arguing, fighting, gossipping and more..
Love is what's needed to settle the score

Drenched in rain...

Waters rising all around
Up the streets and right back down
Rows of people on the run
Fleeing what the storm has done

Caring people cross the way
Lifting, helping:   night and day
Desperate moments, sparkle bright;
When  these angels come in sight

Harvey's wrath has hit them all
Older, younger, great and small:
But the beauty, of   this pain:
Are these heroes drenched in rain

We all thank you: you, who care
Weathering dangers everywhere
Reaching out and losing sleep
Lifting folks from waters deep

Soon the waters will go down
And the outcome will be found
Homes and lives all torn apart
Time for love and collective heart...

Imprints of the Almighty

Skies open up with the glow of the sun
Beauty and hope fall out on everyone
Blueness and clarity and lovely warm air
Storms are now passing; there's peace everywhere

Oh wonderful world at the break of each day
So much of the Eternal is passing our way
In beauty and  awesomeness and sounds all around
Imprints of the Almighty are definitely found

Rising up quickly we rush into day
Cooking and prepping and off on our way
Driving through traffic and taking in smog
We hardly remember to pray in this fog..

Oh wonderful world at the break of each day
So much of the Eternal is passing our way
In beauty and  awesomeness and sounds all around
Imprints of the Almighty are definitely found

The day lingers on: our minds fill with stress
Too many the worries and concerns to address
Hurrying from work and back in the race
We pass by so many but what of God's grace?

Oh wonderful world at the break of each day
So much of the Eternal is passing our way
In beauty and  awesomeness and sounds all around
Imprints of the Almighty are definitely found

Each day we continue from morning to night
We have our routines and our goals are in sight
But have we forgotten or have we not seen
Who we keep missing in our daily routine?

Oh wonderful world at the break of each day
So much of the Eternal is passing our way
In beauty and  awesomeness and sounds all around
Imprints of the Almighty are definitely found

The waters are rising

Tears from the Heavens.. tears in my eyes:
Rivers are rising; this isn't a guise
People are crying and people are in need:
Stuck in the waters: will they recede?

Heaven, Oh Heaven, hear now our prayer
The waters are rising; they  flood everywhere
People are clinging; the people all cry
Waking they see it: the rivers, they rise...

Would that they'd heed us; would that they wait..
The people in panic, will not hesitate:
They rush through the waters: they try to escape
Despite all the warnings, through waters they trape

Heaven, Oh Heaven, hear now our prayer
The waters are rising; they  flood everywhere
People are clinging; the people they cry
Waking they see it: the rivers, they rise...

Don't forget peoples ....don't forget prayer
God is all powerful and He's everywhere
Miracles can happen and  miracles will
Rise up before you; if you remember Him still

Heaven, Oh Heaven, hear now our prayer
The waters are rising; they  flood everywhere
People are clinging; the people they cry
Waking they see it: the rivers, they rise...

Stormy night of fear

Hurricane Harvey

Voices in the wind
Cry out from deep  within
A stormy night of fear
Has told us: Harvey's here.

Rough and breezy night
Devastation's in sight
No way to walk or run
Destruction has begun

The news is all alive
But no one else inside
Can call or shout at all
The winds have begun to brawl

Power outages rage
Headlines fill the page
Harvey's path so cruel
Continues his ruthless rule..

The daylight will surprise
And fill  our weary eyes;
With tears and disbelief:
This storm is such a thief..

To those who will remain
In wind and pounding rain
Be safe and be you well
There's stories you will  tell..

In all this uncertainty
That you'll  witness and will see
Remember that:  there's  One
Who rules the sea and Sun..

Harvey's arrival

The storm, it turned, towards the southern coast
And the winds and rains became frightening to most
Like warriors. who battled. there were some. who did stay:
Fighting the forces ...they were all washed away

And Harvey he came with the mightiest wind
He roared and he blew and he turned once again  
Flooding the beaches and shattering the homes
This hurricane demolished the safest of zones..

While people were fleeing the others did stay
Some were incredulous and laughed all the way
Pounding the barriers and uprooting the trees
Harvey devoured the earth and its breeze......

And Harvey he came with the mightiest wind
He roared and he blew and he turned once again  
Flooding the beaches and shattering the homes
This hurricane demolished the safest of zones..

The forecaster predicted but never could see
The outcome so treacherous how could it all be
These waters so bountiful: now a new grave
For mass groups of people who rode in its wave

And Harvey he came with the mightiest wind
He roared and he blew and he turned once again  
Flooding the beaches and shattering the homes
This hurricane demolished the safest of zones..

The final trumpet

I heard the mighty trumpet sound
From the Heavens and all around
Songs of hope and lasting grace
Filled the earth and every place

While the earth and waters shook
Spiritual beings held a book
From its pages,  words were read
And all the peoples: they were fed....

But there's some who did refuse:
Choosing darkness: they'd abuse
All the light souls, all around..
In their hearts no truth was found...

Countless days and endless fight
Set the Almighty's plan, in sight:
To cleanse the world, to heal again
Every captive would be free from sin..

All that's wonderful, all the shine
Comes from One, the One Divine
But  there's those who do mislead:
Promising Heaven is our  greed...

Come now,  see it, come today
Countless angels are here to say:
Heaven is waiting, waiting for you
Time is ticking, what will you do...?

Behind the curtain....

Let the silence of the morning dance inside your heart
It's rythm is so beautiful its wonderfulness a way to start
So much awesomeness is inside it: this predawn early show
Without the help of media we have all we need to know

Oh hear the quiet stirrings of creatures in the trees
The echo of many crickets in the softly blowing breeze
Something about the newness that comes at break of day
Can move the avid listener with some lyrics for the way

The calmness and the softness of the slowly rising sun
Warms the early riser with a wamth that's not undone
The rays with their many miracles are riding through the air
Each one is carrying an energy that can transform us all with care.

Resting upon the greenery, a screen made up of  a cloud
Speaks to us of mysteries, we have never heard out loud...
The greatness of  the majestic, who  aren't needing a hurrah
They're happy being the messengers of One who gives us all

Look outside your windows, before you start your day:
What do you see before you, what does the world have to say?
Are there any moving creatures, any birds that peck and dance
Tell me, if your willing, are there squirrels out there by chance?

Take time for a few more minutes, and hear what you can hear..
Before your put on your tv; what says the atmosphere?
Are there any sounding creatures, any birds in a symphony
Or is it completely silent with a openness like the sea...

Today is yours and always ..but what will you do today?
Will you coast through it uncaring; or notice everything on the way?
Will you make of every moment, every second and hour too:
An endless sign of gratitude, for the One who created you?

We hardly see....

Green and yellow, blue and white
Colors created by the Lord of Light
Black and orange and pink and grey
Are beautiful colors along the way...

But we who see;  we hardly see
Beauty is everywhere: in you and me
Everything created; and everyone around
Holds a Divine-ness: yes  Heaven is found

Mountains, rivers, fields all gold
Echo the greatness of mysteries untold
Creatures, cosmos, quiet rocks too
Speak to us secrets, so infinitely true

But we who see; we hardly see
Beauty is everywhere: in you and me
Everything created; everyone around
Holds a Divine-ness: yes Heaven is found

Nighttime, daytime, in between
Holds an Immensity so unseen
Hours and minutes and seconds each day
Whisper the messages God would say

But we who see; we hardly see
Beauty is everywhere: in you and me
Everything created; everyone around
Holds a Divine-ness: yes Heaven is found

So we're challenged we're invited too
To listen intently to see what's true
Beyond the media and clouds of lies'
God will be waiting with His Surprise..

But we who see; we hardly see
Beauty is everywhere: in you and me
Everything created; everyone around
Holds a Divine-ness: yes Heaven is found

The angel weeps...

I heard the angels call out my name
For  darkness was ruling the night and day
The war of the mightiest was ruining all  souls
And Light was rejected by the many: I suppose

And the angels cried  with a mighty  voice
The Heavens, they wept, at the collective choice
Too many  the quarrelers the haters the wrong
Leading a people into a darkness so long

The troubled, they troubled: both night and day
And created a whirlwind along the way
They stirred up the elements and made a war
Within their own nation: they removed its floor

And the angels cried  with a mighty  voice
The Heavens, they wept, at the collective ones' choice
Too many  the quarrelers the haters the wrong
Leading a people into a darkness so long

Instead of the loving that they should show
The created were fighting and turmoil did grow
Lashing out venom, that would poison the world
Hatred and prejudice together were unfurled

And the angels cried  with a mighty  voice
The Heavens, they wept, at the collective ones' choice
Too many  the quarrelers the haters the wrong
Leading a people into a darkness so long

The leaders with power were acting like night
Instead of like beacons who shine off pure light
Machinery were replacing the hands that would toil
And clouds made from numbers, gathered the spoil

And the angels cried  with a mighty  voice
The Heavens, they wept, at the collective ones' choice
Too many  the quarrelers the haters the wrong
Leading a people into a darkness so long

The Heavens, they opened, and out came a roar
"My people, my people what is this all for..
This fighting, this warring, this spreading of grief
Has shown you have lost it: your faith and belief"

And the angels cried  with a mighty  voice
The Heavens, they wept, at the collective ones' choice
Too many  the quarrelers the haters the wrong
Leading a people into a darkness so long

This poem, it is ending; but not so its source
We're a nation divided by the evil one's force
Were better than this nonsens, this hatred these lies
Let us return back to unity and bring hope to our skies

And the angels cried  with a mighty  voice
The Heavens, they wept, at the collective ones' choice
Too many  the quarrelers the haters the wrong
Leading a people into a darkness so long

Let out your praises...

Calmness envelops the emerging of dawn
The earth she is silent the breezes they yawn
All in the minerals, the elements the trees
Silence is speaking, with the intention to please

Clouds, with their movements, are waking the sky
Artisically, they gather; in fluffs, they pass by..
Molecules and atoms and invisbleness too;
Combine with the moisture and fall down as dew

Chirping and humming and romping around,
Creatures awaken and break out in sound...
Carefree and happy and oblivious to all:
Plantlets and animals and insects, all call...

Quiet your beingness and silence your mind
The  morning will greet you as moments unwind
Hear what is hearable and all that is not
Daylight will show you what cannot be bought..

Sing with the angels and sing with a song
A hymn of great gratitude: no need to be long.
Simple and perfect and true as your heart
Let out your praises of God when you start.

We are meant to be: so happy and free

Green are the leaves, that whisper in the wind..
The breezes encourage them, again and again:
To dance and  to sing and to be truly free;
The same, they sing, to you and me...

For we are meant to be, so happy and free
To love and to laugh and to be to be
Yes, that is what we are living for: 
To give and to live and to love some more

The creatures, outside, they dance they do..
United to nature, they move on through..
Without the fuss, that we all can know:
The plantlets and creatures continue to grow

For we are meant to be, so happy and free
To love and to laugh and to be.. to be..
Yes, that is what we are living for: 
To give and to live and to love some more

What makes us so different as human kind
Is our ability to think and use our mind
Would that we would use it like we know we should
The world would be much better: we know it would

For we are meant to be, so happy and free
To love and to laugh and to be.. to be..
Yes, that is what we are living for: 
To give and to live and to love some more

We can turn on the TV  and  see the hate
People are fighting and are so irate
Cursing and fussing and hurting each other
Can we not see it: dear sister and brother??

For we are meant to be, so happy and free
To love and to laugh and to be.. to be..
Yes, that is what we are living for: 
To give and to live and to love some more

There is still some time to amend our ways
To get it right, to salvage some days...
But if we're not careful and refuse to love:
We'll begin to see action from the good God Above

For we are meant to be, so happy and free
To love and to laugh and to be.. to be..
Yes, that is what we are living for: 
To give and to live and to love some more

So stop, stop, stop...

Why can we not all start loving each other
We are  without exception: sisters and brothers
Countries and cultures and races may collide
The spirit within us can stop this divide

So stop stop stop this warring this hating
This endless division and ruthless debating
Why are we doing this and why can't we love
Enough is enough: our Father's above..

The violence continues the coverage we see
The networks are airing it all continually
People are fighting and people are irate
Who can come rescue us from all of this hate..

So stop stop stop this warring this hating
This endless division and ruthless debating
Why are we doing this and why can't we love
Enough is enough: our Father's above..

The tears they are falling from Heaven above
Angels are weeping because we can't love
It's terribly horrendous and terribly a shame
We who are fighting are one and the same

So stop stop stop this warring this hating
This endless division and ruthless debating
Why are we doing this and why can't we love
Enough is enough: our Father's above..

We are one if we are wise...

All the creatures were made free
Made by One who can always see
All our beings and all our lives
We are one if we are wise..

All the hatred and all the war
Is not what we're  created for
But for the beautiful lovely ties
We are one if we are wise

In the enjoyment of our homes
Creativeness sings her lovely tones
And in the employment life provides
We are one if we are wise..

Giving, caring, and being kind
Is what makes us all Divine
For on earth or in the skies
We are one if we are wise.

Thunderstorms

See the rain, it's coming down
And the wind is blowing round
Thunder claps and lightning too
Creates a storm for me and you

All the creatures hide away
Stormy weather's here today
Time to think and stay inside
Too much happening there outside..

Wind is howling loud out there
Clouds are crowding everywhere
Something's in the atmosphere
All earth's anguish we can hear

Pitter patter becomes a shower
And the downpour's carrying power
Like the rush of roaring wind
Air is circling round again

Sit and listen, it is  great:
Gushing floods, from Heaven's gate..
Rushing to the earth around:
In the breezes,we hear sound..

Poetic proverbs

Before the morning's underway
And the busy-ness has its way
Pause awhile and be so still
Let the silence teach your will

When the morning star does shine
And it's speaking: don't decline
The invitation and the plea,
Heaven sends to you and me...

Step apart from all the noise,
And let the calmness guide your choice
Being different, is okay,
Don't let evilness have its way...

Close your ears to hateful pleas,
And be the same when no one sees:
Pure in heart and mind and soul;
Heaven's still a realistic goal

Though the world would have you hate;
Don't give in or have debate
Let the Light,of Love Sincere:
Guide your actions far and near..

When your tempted in your belief
Be you strong against the thief
Who would rob you from your grace
And put confusion in its place

Stand up strong for in all you do
Be a beacon: shine on through...
When the world is running wrong
Point the way, and sing your song

No more doubting no more fear
Find your strength in One who's near
Morning noon or darkest night
He's your Answer He's your Light

Morning's song

Put your hands up in the air
Fill the Heavens ...everywhere
Sky.. so blue.. and bright and clean
God is everywhere ..though unseen

Touch the petals, of each flower;
Hear the roaring lion's power...
All the animals, rise to sing:
God is present in everything...

Mountains great and valleys low,
Join the Heavens and earth below...
Grass, so green,and soothing too
Tells us daily that God is true

Morning noon and darkest night
In the tunes from birds in flight
Sounds of greatness and the Divine
Tell us all : we are His Shrine..

Listen now or later on
You will hear the Heavens yawn
In the whispering of a mite
God is echoing, He is Light..

If we could take a moment

Look outside your home and see what you can see
Before you start your bustle or become busy like the bee
Hear what's out there singing in the breezes and the trees:
The flowers and the plantlets and the tiniest no one sees

For all around us is a beauty and a loveliness so pure
If we could take a moment, we would see all this for sure;
But, often times, we're running and we're speeding through our day
We miss all the lovely  messages that the universe has to say..

Sitting inside the traffic the noises are surely loud
Bumper to bumper traffic can be more invasive than a crowd.
Yet even within this craziness, we can look up high to see
A softness in the Heavens that is displayed for you and me

For all around us is a beauty and a loveliness so pure
If we could take a moment we would see all this for sure
But often times we're running and we're speeding through our day
We miss all  the lovely  messages that the universe has to say..

While all of our mind is busy with the burdens of our day
And work is piled upon us we without a second to look away...
If we can find that moment that breath of air serene
We might hear a whispering rumble of the One who goes Unseen

For all around us is a beauty and a loveliness so pure
If we could take a moment we would see all this for sure
But often times we're running and we're speeding through our day
We miss all the lovely  messages that the universe has to say..

What schedule can be so regimented so piled up and so set
That we cannot pause to ponder and acknowledge we're truly blessed
For the minutes of every hour and the seconds of every day
Are ambassadors from the Heavens and they have so much to say

For all around us is a beauty and a loveliness so pure
If we could take a moment we would see all this for sure
But often times we're running and we're speeding through our day
We miss all of the lovely  messages that the universe has to say..

Warnings

I opened my eyes and I finally saw 
The Omnipotent Creator, the Giver of all
He spoke to my spirit, He filled me with awe
I opened my eyes, and I finally saw..

The night was all darkness and the day was unclear
Storms were approaching from what I could hear
The forecast was  ominous;  the atmosphere ripe
A mighty mighty windstorm was coming tonight..

I opened my eyes and I finally saw 
The Omnipotent Creator, the Giver of all
He spoke to my spirit, He filled me with awe
I opened my eyes, and I finally saw..

The trees, were all bending; the earth it did shake
Tremors and rumbles, preceded a quake
The skies were all darkness; the air was all  thick
Within my own chambers, I whispered and hid

I opened my eyes and I finally saw 
The Omnipotent Creator, the Giver of all
He spoke to my spirit, He filled me with awe
I opened my eyes, and I finally saw..

The machines were all rumbling and bombs did explode
The future was present in a mystical mode
People were fighting for reasons unknown
Something was happening:  my spirit  was shown

I opened my eyes and I finally saw 
The Omnipotent Creator, the Giver of all
He spoke to my spirit, He filled me with awe
I opened my eyes, and I finally saw..

The future was mingled within the present its clear
Warnings from Heaven will come for all here.
We have it within us to ward off this plight
It comes in a vision to give us some sight

I opened my eyes and I finally saw 
The Omnipotent Creator, the Giver of all
He spoke to my spirit, He filled me with awe
I opened my eyes, and I finally saw..

So let us start loving while loving,  we can
Giving to each other without malice in hand
Sharing and caring and all that is good
Let us start doing this: we know that we should

I opened my eyes and I finally saw 
The Omnipotent Creator, the Giver of all
He spoke to my spirit, He filled me with awe
I opened my eyes, and I finally saw.
