BLIZZARDS SHOULD BE SCARED!

Like scary tribal masks

to make bad spirits run…

This Jordan spreader

Tries to look like one!

As much to entertain folk

Who past by it in summer…

Who wonder what that thing is,

Does it run–if not, that’s a bummer!

A wedge plow I know has been

Fitted with a painted shark’s grin…

The museum that

Has it may chat,

But it’s snow plowing days will end!

–J.E.C.

FIRST APRILWEEKEND

FIRST APRIL WEEKEND

Narcissi pushing up blooms

As Gladioli in their corner….

Luxuriate in rain

Then Sunday brings the former

Season for one last icy flow–

How we wish this is the end

Of driving in snow

(We don’t want to pretend),

That this is all a dream

In an ice-bound misery…!

–Jonathan Caswell

EARLY IN THE MORNING

EARLY IN THE MORNING,

The women came to see…

Who would roll away the stone,

Their spices they wouldn’t need.

The stone was big and heavy

But had been rolled away…

Visions of angels

Met them on Resurrection Day.

All their sorrow gone

They hurried away to tell…

The rest of His disciples

Of the silenced death knell!

Peter and John came running–

Not all believed of course,

Until Christ appeared to them

Behind locked doors!

But seeing isn’t believing

As even Scripture tells,

Some had doubts, did not believe,

WITHOUT FAITH…the flesh kills.

Come to the feasting–

See the open grave,

Christ is risen Sunday

Believer’s souls to save!

–Jonathan Caswell

 

“CALL OF THE KLUTZ”

CALL OF THE KLUTZ

For a guy with a cane who’s unsteady,

It’s been one of those days…

He’s fumbled and tripped along

His mind in a general haze.

That “flipper-dingous” is active,

Fumbling  forks and keys…

Sometimes he’s too reactive–

“Would  this day end…PLEASE???”

–Jonathan Caswell

“NEVER-ENDING SEARCH—HAS!

NEVER-ENDING SEARCH–HAS!

To re-invent the wheel,

He didn’t want to do…

But BUILD ONE in N scale—

THAT—was scary, too!

European models,

Some had waterwheels…

Most were really tiny

With no American appeal.

He found what he wanted

On the “used” E-bay…

A waterwheel large

Enough for a proper sliuce way!

His New England grist mill,

With its water wheel…

Soon may be together

To a child’s delightful squeal!

CHOSEN BY GOD–NOW GROW!

CHOSEN BY GOD–NOW GROW!

(Ephesians 1: 1-6; 15-23)

Open my eyes, oh Lord Most High,

That I see and comprehend…

All the Spirit  found in Thy Word–

The Wisdom that has no end.

Brothers and sisters praying for me,

Uplifting me through prayer…

That I may see and practice–

Avoiding demonic snare!

Shepherd and under-shepherd both,

Ply Christ Jesus’ troth,

His Body–His Bride–

The Church might abide

In the mind of Christ with growth.

Strengthen then your resolve,

To ask Spirit’s help to see…

All God’s wonder, power and mercy

And with the same, treating me!

If forceful men and women

Can hoodwink the American news crowd…

And not challenged for their deception,

We humble ourselves–not Proud.

If they can’t see through veiling,

How then can we…

Except humble asking for wisdom

From our Father God in eternity?

If only…the Christians would rise up–

If only they believed for sure…

That Christ, God’s Son, gave us Power

In His Spirit to do and endure!

–Jonathan Caswell

THEY REALLY BELIEVE THIS?

THEY REALLY BELIEVE THIS?

In the name of Allah,

Mowing people down…

‘Cause you think they’re evil

And only your kind deserve being around.

Is this not evil

Centuries have tried to crush…

Forceful controlling leaders

Commanding heads of mush?

Hate wrapped in religion,

The ultimate “higher-than-thou”…

Too many Lord Chamberlains in this world–

Do you see the lies now?

Crusaders were a rabble,

Bigots though they were…

This is beyond pay-back

Very much disturbed!
