A word to the wise
if prayer we utilize

By God they’re always heard
each and every word

And He will answer some
or only silence will come

For what things we pray
aren’t always the best way

When it is God’s plan
and not of mortal man

Our path does seems unclear
and we fall into fear

But if our faith be sound
the answer will be found

As does His amazing grace
hold no time or space

For it comes by a love
that we know nothing of

While bound on this earth
but I know it’s worth!

Water – Hay(na)ku

Water

the sustainer

of all life

*

Rain

falls down

upon the earth

*

Rivers

are then

with fish rife

*

Fields

bring forth

crops new birth

*

Water

without you

is no life.

*

Therein

we find

your true worth

Time, Time, Time

When time, time, time
just as everyone knows
without reason or rhyme
over the years goes

By the seconds and hours
as sand through the glass
that our life devours
before it does pass

On what it is spent
defines our value and worth
by God to us lent
while still here on earth

So let it be used
to bless one other life
and not to be abused
by heaping on more strife

That God then will say
well done faithful servant
you walked in the way
for which life was meant!
