Sunday Sonnet!



Find ample time for others, thought to spare,
Whose daily lives encroach on hunger’s edge,
Their faltering hope consumed by deep despair,
Reserve of courage purposeless to dredge;
Amidst the bustle of your festal cheer,
So often driven my obsessive fun,
Unnoticed, wander eyes and hearts of fear,
For whom to stay alive is all but done;
What tidings does the Manger Infant bring?
How are the homeless housed and famished fed?
As Seraphim their Alleluias sing,
Shall Gracious God provide the daily bread?
Divine Assistance wields not magic wands,
But works through willing human hearts and hands!

To All My Friends…..


As many of you may have noticed, I have not been as active/present around here for some weeks – going back to late September.


I have been otherwise occupied…not least with visiting daughter in Germany…and writing.

We are soon off on an extended holiday in South Africa….until after New Year.

Will be revisiting the much loved Garden Route from Cape Town to Port Elizabeth and back….

Since there is never a guarantee of getting ‘online’ I am unlikely to be very active here or elsewhere;

Moreover, if/when I comment on any posts, reactions will be notified and my E-mail box is likely to be flooded.

So, I might well be ‘reading’ posts and ‘reacting’ to them but will refrain from posting comments..or posting anything on my blogs.

Deo Volente, departure is scheduled for end of month….return early January.

May I now wish you all, Festive Season Blessings…and Good Wishes for 2017!!!

Be thinking of you…

God Bless!

Peace on Earth???


Promise Despoiled!

Misguided by the vulgar god of Greed,
When ‘Want’ and ‘Will’ suppress the Human Need,
Fair Peace cannot exist,
‘less parity persist,
Abundance in this World for all to feed!

What Can I Give Him…

Firstborn warrants gifts,
Shepherds proffer little lambs,
Grateful render hearts!
