to life is

to live as though

you know

the secret.”

secret

who knows

hidden from view

enigma for the occult

Poem:

.

The magic that frees the soul
faith in a Higher Power to extol
things change when you do his His will
the miracles that give one a thrill

to fly the soul needs no magic carpet
you are the designer of its final target
left, right, good, evil, up or down
if it was a circus you could be the clown

happiness involves a simple change in attitude
made by those who have much gratitude
thinking of and doing for others
we are all brothers from different mothers

a loving God who is Father to us all
remembering our rise from the Neanderthal
enjoy this life that we have been given
believe it or not this is heaven

always be motivated by the best of intentions
always be ready to ask the right questions
sometimes it is best to keep the mouth shut
easily done when stuffed with a cream filled donut

so the magic you see may come from any direction
today make sure you do not miss it’s detection

You Triumph

“Breath,

dreams,

silence,

invincible calm,

you triumph.”

out in front

Poem:
.

he tried to strangle the keyboard
the words were stuck in outer space
everything read like the congressional record
every idea seemed to be out of place

the poem would not get off of first base
it blatantly lied to me with a straight face
it giggled and laughed and called me names
it made every attempt to go up in flames

finally I declared enough is enough
time for the poetic muse to get tough
this poem needs a topic like death or love
compromise said the poem,
lets talk about the God from above

the Creator who makes all things possible
the One whose concept is philosophical
keeping balance in the Uni-verse, day and night
and when we accept, everything is just right

the list goes on for those who are forever grateful
an inside job whose attitude is delightful
having the courage to build on a foundation of faith
to fend off the curse that is cast by the wraith

the Almighty was benevolent and the words erupted
all is good when the Spirit is trusted
even the poem gave a sigh of contentment
the last thing anyone would ever want is a resentment

another poem inspired by Providence
trusting in the All Powerful’s competence
