Sunday Sonnet!

He sat, distraught, upon the broken bench,
A dark cloud, fast approaching from the east,
Behind his back a wreck dispensed its stench,
While at his feet lie shattered dreams, deceased.
But yesterday, he saw a fresh new dawn,
Yet flames of cruel misfortune intervened
To leave today and future naked, shorn,
A mass of diverse human lives demeaned.
Alas! Within the quagmire of distress,
Compassion sounds the clarion call of hope,
Largesse, response of human kindliness,
Providing all necessities to cope.
Out of the ashes of despairing pain,
Phoenix of Will to Live will rise again!

Leave not to Chance whatever is to be,
Like devastated gambler left forlorn,
Or someone who succumbs to destiny,
To elements exposed like sheep late shorn;
Though Future never fully can be known,
Save by the Might within whose Hand it lies,
The seed of Hope within each soul is sown,
The fruit of which predictions oft defies;
Slide not into the quicksand of despair,
When untowards life’s passage overrun,
Stay anchored to the paragon of care,
Whose constancy can never be undone;
Leave not to Chance whatever is to be,
Let Love provide aegis for you and me!

Let not a thoughtless word your lips depart,
For none its consequences can foretell,
The vulnerable and sensitive may smart,
While others, more reactive, may rebel,
Provoking unpredictable retorts,
Like poisoned arrows, pierce a fragile heart,
Wiser, instead, those thoughts to turn around,
Commending them to scrutiny of grace;
Then amity is certain to resound,
Effecting pleasant smiles on every face;
Too often words uncensored foul the air,
Too often hapless languish in despair.

To Those Who Lose Out,
Court Not Despair,
What Shall Be,
Shall Be,
Trust!
Hope
Whispers,
Man Chooses,
Oft Times Unwise,
Fate May Not Concur!

Take Heart!

Let not vile thoughts of failure spawn despair,
Nor vision of a better life impair,
Let Faith your cause impel,
Disabling Doubt excel,
Sustaining efforts all with humble prayer!

Too often do we waver on our way,
Preferring Faith’s assurance to gainsay,
Perchance a hapless past,
Our confidence recast,
Yet Grace shall all anxieties allay!

As Father Time observes each passing year
Opining that we are but guested here,
He beams a caring smile,
Our fears to reconcile,
For to Divine Creator we are dear!
