In The Face Of War

Standard

In the face of the war…
There are no sore losers…
Nor are there great winners
Not the one whose body hangs highest in the pile…
Lord in his life…
A mere body in death

There are no winners…
In the face of war…
Not the one left desolate at 10
To the echoes of dust and death
He must now learn to live
A child at the start of war
Soon he will be a casualty or the war’s lord

Yellow flowers know the same fate
Blood dripping red in their roots
Trampled fast before a chance at nature’s law…

Generations to come will no doubt hear of the scars
Tales of war on the faces of their history…

*Praying for the people of Kenya*

Winter Is So Cold

Standard
I bear the weighted burden of these cold days in my heart
Crawling through January and December days as a shadow in white snow
Peace albeit dark and sad trailing my labored and frozen steps

Mother Nature Weeps

Standard
Mother Nature weeps
Her eyes of comfort and compassion growing dim
Her beloved and children from all corners turning on themselves
Turning on her and her beauty
Trees cut down
Built bridges and bushes burning deep wild and free

Devastation and war in the most innocent of places
Death on the rise as greed and lust flow free
With heavy blood now easily shed

Childhood has lost its innocence
Old age knows now only disdain
Hate is now on the rise as war strides high as power
The need to see and hear overcome by guns and drugs

Peace now on the back burner
Evil and anger
Rape and malice
Roaming as lords and kings among trees and leaves
Whispering deceit blaspheme and incurable incest
Humanity is fast dying

Love lost in the heart of mankind

Merry Christmas!!!

Standard
Neatly wrapped in a bow of beige and care
Sent flying in the winds so high
My love and heart I send to all
This Christmas dawn

MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!

Isaiah 9:6: “For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.”

Luke 2:14: “Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.”

Healing Rain

Standard
Healing rain fall afresh
Flood our earth with your many waters
Your cleansing powers seeping to the roots
Let it cure absolutely...

Healing rain fall afresh
Fill our hearts and flush them clean
Heal us and make all whole
Make all new...

Healing rain fall...please fall afresh...

A Collection Of Short Poems VI

Standard

PAINFUL THOUGHTS OF YOU

Raking golden colored leaves on my front yard
My body curls as cold air blows past my eyes into my heart
Painful thoughts of you welling up like tears deep inside

LOST IN LUST

Lost in the warmth of his timely words
I envisioned the embrace would be even better
Lust shaded my views as I succumbed to his will

OUR KISS

This breath
No longer warm
Just tepid
Stinking of lust
Ugly reminders of you

EVIDENCE

Your eyes are darts
Achingly piercing the heart

Scars and tears
Stained crimson red
Evidence of your hidden truth

UNTITLED: NEW FOUND LOVE

I am not defined by him
But this new found love sustains me

YOUR LOVE

In the heart of my poems
Lies your love
Beating my motives to life

YOUR LOVE II

Your love sits written in ink
Sealed with desire
On the tablet of my beating heart

Here now passion resides
Scribbled all over
You and I as one

YOU ARE MY POEM

You are my poem
I write in love
Youthful lust
And happy thoughts of you

CANVAS OF MY HEART

I spread this canvas of light
Golden in its ray
Like summer sun bright and warm
My heart paints
And caresses your name
In love

YOU ARE MY POEM II

You are my poem
The ying to this passionate yang
My calm and peaceful Zen

My inspiration and quiet meditation
I write in love of you

* A lovely, joyfilled week to you all*
