Morning Poem No. 10

20140417-151718.jpg

Standing here, by the lavenders’ nest
Breathing in beauty, sighing admiration
Seeing the sun cresting in the fresh,
Bluish sky — Ah, Inspiration! Inspiration,
You fail never to enfold me every morn!

Morning Poem No. 3

20140321-111322.jpg

the wintry sigh of the morning
clouds, its eager embrace
with the warmth of the rising
sun, a sight to behold, great
to savvy, seize, this scenery
of beauty and austerity
loudly whispering, “It is
another day, by God’s grace,
for us to live worthily.”

The Travelers’ Chorus

20140317-220447.jpg

This earth’s pilgrims, wayfarers
Aye, chasing time, here and there
Seizing every opportunity,
Showing they’re worthy dwellers
Of that regal, eternal City.

El Sol y La Luna

He was the East she has longed to hold
She was the West he has never known
The tik’s and tok’s the clock has cried
It was Time who made their tearful divide!

His Awaited Trip

20140313-231356.jpg

His eyes, bleary and tired
He closed them once to find
For a while some peace
Away from hustles and hurries
He opened them, only to see,
“Oh, I have missed
My most awaited trip!”
He cried, and did he mourn hard!
But the city wind whispered,
“Boy, wait you must,
And worry you must not.
It may be a trip not meant
For you to grasp and take.”
His eyes, once bleary and tried
He kept them open, he realized
“I have learned, faith we must;
Things happen accordingly
To those who believe and trust.”

The Wait

She waits
She looks down
Oh, it sure is lovely,
The scene!
The brightness of beauty,
The yellow and green!

She waits
And at times,
The cold wind visits
And at times, hunts.

It sure is arduous
To fight the cold!
It sure is arduous
To fight the beauty
Of temporal bliss!

But while she is here
She will keep her faith:
The glory of things
Yet to be seen
Is beyond the sufferings
Of the battle she is in.

She knows
She learned
That glory is
Worth the wait.

A Jaded Heart’s Cry

let the tranquil sky,
the gentle breeze dry
your jaded heart’s cry.

let that cleansed eye see
that each of us has his
story of pain and agonies-

in time,
the sturdy trees
lose once
beloved leaves;

in time,
the sun is set to kiss
its flame goodbye,
it has to cease.

remain in faith,
be steadfast
while you wait.

lose not the will
to fight a good fight until
the end
for the greatest meed
awaits those who will
endure until
the very end.
