KINDNESS IS A GODLY TRAIT

KINDNESS IS A GODLY TRAIT

When one is kind and not harsh,

Like those evolved out of a march…

Your Creator smiles,

Walks with you for miles

Watching you refresh the parched!

Godly—like His grace–

As though you’ve seen His Face…

It is His nature:

Grace for His creatures,

If only they’ll make Him their Ace.

Kindness doesn’t come easy,

Toward hate, bigots and the sleazy…

Needs God’s help.

Impossible by yourself–

Without Him your resources are measly!

Christ paid the ultimate price,

For sin, opening Paradise…

A cup of water

Instead of slaughter

He thought particularly nice.

AMAZING

AMAZING

AmazingĀ  when you think of it,

What mental illness wreaks…

But I’ve a friend from “lock-up”–

Opening her letter as we speak.

She cannot read my handwriting

Even if I print….

Only my wife will try it,

So I type anything sent.

She begins to send me poetry

From her own fine pen…

Her latest I may print up,

For suitable illustration!

GOLDEN AVENUES

GOLDEN AVENUES

Driving home this afternoon,

My “baby” in the car…

Sunlit wonder all around

From a burning orange star,

Trees ablaze in glory

Shielded those trees bare…

Formed a perfect backdrop

For sunlight-scented air!

But I had to hurry

Against the blinding sun…

Didn’t due to worry,

I had to make that run

To get her home and safe…

Would I get to work on time–

I had to keep faith!

Golden avenues along which

We traveled by car…

Lit with welcome light

From a friendly star;

Got the Missus home again

And then off I flew…

Arrived only an hour late–

WHEW!!!!

LOW VOLTAGE

LOW VOLTAGE

I need to charge my lap top up,

I didn’t have the chance,

I got off-line quickly

To put on my work pants…

I’ve done a lot already

This Monday afternoon,

I’ll take some time to work on lines

And then be back real soon!

I’ll take some time to work my lines

And then be back REAL SOON!
