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

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

WEIGHT… a poem

The weight we carry

In the belly

In the thighs

Cannot hide the weight we carry

Deep, deep down inside

Alone, Sad, Depression, Loneliness

…………………………

Perhaps, there on the outside

They say, “You’re looking tight!”

If they only knew

What’s on your heart

They might hold you through the night

Dog, Snow, Joy, Winter, Fun, Friend

……………………………

But, lest it be forgotten

There is One who carried more

He will stem the tide

On this difficult ride

And shoulder the weight that you once bore

Love, Jesus, Prophet, Holy Man, Christ

TUCKED AWAY… a poem

man sitting on white concrete building during daytime

While I ponder the pages

Piqued and persuaded

To go just a little bit more

It is there that I find

In the corners of my mind

What my life has been longing for

Tucked away neatly

Not wrapped with a bow

Was solace, alive and well

Patiently waiting

For me to discover

Then go out in the world and tell

Tell of the truth

Of kindness and love

Embracing the differences, we see

A lesson so old

Again, to be told

By a simple man like me
