What Words May Come

Writing simple poetry, song lyrics and short stories has become so important to me over the past few years.  When I began my words were therapy for me though at the time I didn’t realize it.  I certainly never considered how impactful these words would become in my life and, from time to time, in other’s lives too.  What thrills me most is the feedback and how many different opinions and interpretations I get from one poem read through the eyes of others.  When I write the words simply flow without me getting too caught up in whatever theme may arise.  It simply starts with a line or sentence then blossoms from there.  I’ve been told it’s a gift, and while somewhere deep within me I believe that to be true, I wonder why it took so long to develop even as it continues to grow.  My grandfather was a writer, so perhaps that is where the answer lies.  Regardless, I hope you find some meaning, some smiles, some tears or something else worthy of your time here within these scripts.

God bless,

Kev

PEACE AND SERENITY… a poem of faith

When I buy the farm

I don’t want to barter

No wrangling around

Or worse, a non-starter

I just hope to go

And join those before me

Hang out with my dad

And Jesus, he knows me

field of green grass

See uncles and aunts

Grandparents and cousins

Meet all the relatives

Angel’s wings buzzin’

And big fluffy clouds

All under my feet

Smiles all around

Yeah, what a retreat

long exposure photography of white cloud

One that will last

From now to infinity

Yes, that’s what I want

Peace and serenity

body of water and seashore

HORIZONS… a poem

areal photography of ocean

Don’t count me in

I’m leaving again

Your horses are dragging me down

Like clouded sun rays

You ruin my days

I don’t want to see you around

But the only way out

And away from your pout

Is for me to go back out to sea

Where the air is much fresher

Without you and your pressure

Just horizons that beckon to me

THE LAND OF MAJESTY… a poem

blue lake and rainbow under nimbus clouds

Come little children

Come with me

To the land of majesty

Moonlit nights and stars above

Sunshine days

All filled with love

Come little children

Come with me

To the land of majesty

Mountain tops

And rainbow highs

Where gentle winds

Sing lullaby’s

Babbling brooks

That tell the tales

Of tiny hero’s riding snails

Where all the days

Are filled with smiles

And flowers bloom

For miles and miles

Come little children

Come with me

To the land of majesty

Heaven’s gates are opened wide

And all our lives

Are justified

red-petaled flowers field

HORIZONS… a poem

The clouds on the horizon

They never do get near

A fleeting star shoots through the night

Out into the clear

Just beyond my reach again

Just beyond my heart

Maybe on the morrow

I can find a brand new start

If home is where the heart is

It’s where I want to be

Casting doubts and broken promises

Always a part of me

But I’ll keep on dreaming, yes

It’s what I always do

For one day on that horizon

I know that I’ll find you
