Finding The Friend That Sticks Closer Than A Brother 

Victors' Corner

When I thought I had reached an awful end.
I came to know a faithful and true Friend.
Who completely loves me as I am.
And never causes me any kind of harm.

Many a friend have come my journey way.
But some of them would not afford to stay.
Many were willing to help but were unable.
A few unwilling to render help, but capable.

There’s one thing I have come to know.
Many friends will always come and go.
Their going away may not be caused by strife.
It is a normal phenomenon of this life.

It’s okay when some friends go away for good.
Especially if they can’t stand in your ‘hood’.
When that happens, I’ll try not to feel too sad.
Because I’ll soon find out it’s not all that bad.

Indeed, there is a friend that sticks closer,
Than the most loyal biological brother.
But…

Hope Within Our Poetry

Words from deep in our heart give us our character and strength and carry us far away in this world and our other world.

Ancient Skies

100_1716Scars won’t keep our hope in the darkness,

instead our words will live

within our poetry,

encouraging us,

strengthening us

each and every day.

Keep. . .

Written In The Ink

Keep breathing,

fill your mind with thoughts,

of love and laughter.

The Wind Coming Down from the Mountains

 

     

Ancient Skies

100_5360As the winter storm roared through the trees, thunder rumbled rolling

through the valley, having been sent down the side of the mountain,

and I realized our spirits are so fragile, we often sense

the loneliness of the wind, with snowflakes swirling,

and yet inside our cocoons, we acknowledge the safety

and that God was never angry, even though

He probably does live in the wind

coming down

from the mountains.

What We Want or Need?

Often we want things we not really need. Regularly we are caught in the trap of our wants, getting frustrated not finding what we hoped for.

Source of Inspiration

We know what we want
but only God knows what
we need.
Pray to give thanks
not to ask.
No ulterior motives.

Both armies pray
to win the war.
Take yourself
out of your prayers.
Seek only to learn to love,
to be in the presence
of God.

Our selfishness
is a trap.
Pray only for the
good of all
ending all prayer with
“Thy will be done.”

the infinity of you

An ode to all mothers and reason enough to make of every day a thanksgiving day.

The Lonely Author

n00264011-t

While sipping wine and listening to soft Latin jazz and samba, I thought of the great love women/mothers provide unselfishly with no boundaries. Sadly, it often goes unappreciated. I truly believe it is difficult for any man to truly reciprocate the endless love & warmth their lady truly deserves.

This poem evolved from those thoughts.

.

the infinity of you

.

The little boy in me
stands before the immense
universe of your poetry
Where metaphors are constellations
and your deep verses
are remote galaxies
Your words travel beyond
time and space
forever eclipsing me
like a lonely particle of love
For you are my sun
I, your loyal moon
a small bewildered child
forever admiring
the infinity of you

.

.

This Thursday I will be volunteering at a local Soup kitchen helping to feed the homeless for Thanksgiving. Thus, I needed to make my second post of the…

Autumn, gorgeous in yellow and red,

After an exceptional great Summer Autumn has come to bring us a variation of colours and many winds to push us, giving the feeling we live and have to do something, advancing in life and preparing for the colder days of Winter.

“Autumn, gorgeous in yellow and red,
Is the harvest time, when man is led
To garner the fruits of sweat and toil
From dear Mother Earth,
the deep rich soil.”…

time is running out

At the beginning of our life time may seem endless long, but by becoming older it seems to go faster and faster. So many times we wonder what we have accomplished in life and have the impression we are still nowhere, though we have already passed half a century. And when we are retired we still want to do so much, but do not seem to have time enough.
The clock ticks further and for some louder, whilst for others (like me) it becomes more quiet, but having the sun giving us enough energy to pass the time and having us to enjoy the time as long as it can.

Take the time in your hand; give time your energy and let your thoughts inspire others, with the knowledge we all walk the path of life, sun, moon and stars allowing days to come, even in the time we do not let the clocks arrange our life.

CRAZY LIFE

Life clock ticks
Makes me the sicks

What have I accomplished?
I have only been auto-punished

I see the clock
I feel like I have in my head a big rock

Time is running out
I just hope I find my life inner scout

Stay Frosty gents and gentesses.

Reverse Solitudes

One Woman's Quest

Loneliness –
abandoned and rejected,
grieves unrestrained,
then hesitantly,
willingly,
opens to possibility,
discovering hope,
connection,
in solitude –

not alone

in solitude
connection
discovers hope,
opens to possibility,
hesitantly,
then willingly,
grief releases,
abandons and rejects
loneliness.

(Frank Hubeny is the host tonight for the dVerse Pub, and he challenges to write a reverse poem.  I found this one in my archives (2015) and with a little tweaking, I think it work.)

Give God your best

sheetal sharma

best

No one stays forever, but bless those –
whose Name stays for good.
Who toiled and loved, Inspiring awe and wonder,
and brought forth the gifts of the Creator.

They remind us Life is Holy, A precious gift to be shared.
So feast the joy of this festivity.Be a child at heart as you play.

Do learn all lessons wholeheartedly ,
Life is the most patient and tender teacher of all’ ,
Listen and be patient as you graduate .
Climb the stairs upward more .

For there is a light waiting.Smiling as you move .
Guiding and softly singing as you accomplish your goals.

Harness love and increase your score for No one stays forever-
But only does your Soul !
