Thanks

‘Thanks’ to caring saints this day who comfort those in mourning ‘Thanks’ to God who gives away new mercies every morning. ‘Thanks’ to those who meet a need for someone else today. ‘Thanks’ to all who pray �God speed� and give in thoughtful ways. ‘Thanks’ to those who feed the poor, who give themselves to others. ‘Thanks’ to soldiers off to war. Defending home and brothers. ‘Thanks’ to those who clothe the needy, who give with nothing spared. ‘Thanks’ to…

Thanksgiving Day Poem

I marvel at the sight, behold the golden roast!So much to swoon the senses here,But let me share what matters most:It is having all my loved ones be so near.And for those who are not here,Know you are present in my heart.And today my thanks, I give in tears,Expressed in streams; revered as art.I give thanks today, remembering the livesThat were given as a gift by God the Father.This thanks is where the greatest living thrivesRefreshing heart and soul like…

Autumn and Renewal

When fields of green have turned to sandy browns And scattered yellows dot the hillside grounds; Autumn winds prepare both shrub and tree for winter’s quiet solace where they cleave. The months of former foliage God removes Until with autumn rains He comes and soothes. The seasons of a tree and the heights of each begins when autumn winds begin to sweep. Another year and season they shall bare Though hard the winter nights, spring will repair The barrenness and…

When Autumn Calls

As the green of summer leaves And the breezes stir the trees Their cover heaves with color: Older leaves are rediscovered. God’s brush begins to touch: Oh the blush of reddened bush! Yellows too, so bright and true Bedeck sky blue with gorgeous hues. Autumn browns too, oft surround Abounding high and on the ground Every shade in fall conveys A glorious fade to winter’s gray. Leaves are summer’s last reprieve: As varied species fall from trees. A closing flare…

My Father’s Legacy

My father fought to keep this country free — A priceless legacy he left for me. He sacrificed his dreams, years of his life To leave America in liberty. Twice he endured the harsh and bitter strife — Japan, Korea… fields awash in gore, Maggot-infested corpses, stench of death. He braved it all, the bitter spoils of war, The nightmare marches, gasping out for breath, Loosing dear comrades in each bloody fight Mid groans and screams that went on endlessly….
