Humor and Laughter

.

“Humor is

a prelude

to faith,

and laughter

is the beginning

of prayer.”

my plea

if you please

may all be fair

God given seasons

a prayer of gratitude

just go with the flow

Poem:

.

time, time, please slow down Mr. Time . . . .
you are faster than I can rhyme
your speed also made me miss my prime
you look like a mountain that I can never climb

please Mr. Time can you be so kind
promise that you will never leave me behind
I’m trying my best to survive just for today
does it help that you are named when I pray

I do thank you Mr. Time for all of the  memories
grateful to have celebrated so many anniversaries
it is my selfish heart that wants so many more
it is not as though I have been keeping score

I apologize Mr. Time for missing the point
today is the day that I must truly anoint
yesterdays and tomorrows can only cloud my view
today I will enjoy your Time looking for what’s new

Over and Done

"Dont

over finish

your work.

There is value

to done.”

work

to act

make it run

while you have fun

play

weather is perfect
a time to go out and play
beautiful day

ignoring world chaos
democracy is alive

.

Poem:

.

sunshine and rainbows, another beautiful day
the lucky have nothing to do but play
everyone can enjoy nature at it’s best
given life, every soul has been blessed

precipitation and wind, the weather is miserable
only the ducks may deem it considerable
the weather is good as a conversation piece
guess right or wrong the odds will never increase

the smart are patient knowing that water is life
the tolerant are able to avoid the strife
the wise do not discuss politics or religion
being careful not to expose the family addiction

ignore the weather it is about to change
most opinions are useless and usually strange
today, love, forgive, be patient, tolerant and kind
let only peace and happiness cross your mind
