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 by 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!

Sunday Sonnet!

IMG_3683(WP)

🦋

When in the quiet of my solitude,
Unshackled thoughts take flight to sites unknown,
No challenge can their energy denude,
Nor have they qualms wherever they are blown;
Such gay abandon bouys their boundless joy,
Like fearless birds of prey out on the wing;
None can their appetite for fun destroy,
Or prematurely shall them homeward bring;
Yet, when their haring spirits are well spent,
And flagging gaiety shall be no more,
Then rootedness to longing shall give vent,
Contentment to the reverie restore.
Breached reservoir of creativity,
Allows unbridled giftedness to be!

Summer Mini-Monos #6

Strawberries,
Cream too, please,
For our teas,
Feasting sprees,
Under trees!

Hot, clear day,
Children play,
Happy they,
Under spray,
Shriek hurray!

Summer Mini-Monos #5

Bowlers bowl,
Oldies stroll,
Lovers droll,
On the roll,
Joy in soul.

Toddlers run
In the sun,
Mums undone;
Everyone
Having fun!

In the sun,
Meet someone,
On the run,
All well done,
To have fun!

Jog ten miles,
Wearing smiles,
Hurdling stiles,
Sipping vials,
Friendship piles!
