Sunday Sonnet!

🎀

‘A little while and pain shall be no more,’
The still, small voice within me reassured;
Affliction wracked my being to the core,
Though signing not, ‘How much to be endured’;
Attended lovingly by caring hands,
The touch of which imbues internal toil
With hope, perdurable, that ne’er disbands,
So deeply rooted in the soul’s subsoil;
His quivering voice, adorned by faintest smile,
Bestirred the innards of a grateful heart;
Can mortal man survive such searing trial,
Enough to rent most powerful apart?
Belief translates impossible to be
A miracle for family to see!

Sunday Sonnet!

🤗

Anticipation warmed within our hearts
As we imagined seeing kith and kin,
Aware that untowards can play their parts,
Attend, all joy with hope to underpin;
Add to all plans the spice of simple trust,
A leaven that eternally endures;
Assistance, all Divine, regards the just
And wholesome blessed endings e’er ensures;
Without ill intervention jaunt ensued,
Enriched by fulsome pleasure all the way;
To everyone, encountered, joy accrued,
Creating lasting memories each day.
Laudate Deum for felicity,
That freely flowed, through gen’rous hearts, to me.

Sunday Sonnet!

Surprised by Pleasure, theretofore not sensed,
A gen’rous gift from daughter and her spouse
Cannot by Muse, Poetic, be condensed
Appreciation, profound, to arouse;
The dulcet tones of ombra mai fu
Conveyed us into ambience of peace,
Attentive Care thenceforth would see us through,
Like infants mollycoddled in lamb’s fleece;
From board to bed, our bodies, minds and souls
Imbibed the elixir of healing rare;
Eternally contented heart extols
Experience in life, beyond compare;
Forever shall these mem’ries, like fine gold,
Occasion gems of Gratitude untold!

Sunday Sonnet!

With gratitude my heart adorns this day,
Replete with benedictions from above,
Deserving of a priceless prayer bouquet,
For fourscore years of untold gracious love;
From birth His presence shielded me from harm,
Although it did not always seem that way,
When ‘Untoward’ assailed, causing alarm
Threat’ning o’er self and fam’ly to hold sway,
Through loyal kith and kin, His love prevailed,
Occasioning no Rubicon be crossed;
In Autumn years new person is unveiled,
To all with sensitivity embossed,
Let all the world in dulcet tones extol
The good God that today embrace my soul!

All My Friends! Please Note!

Tempus Fugit! Indeed! 22nd July – just gone, marked a year of my being part of this fantastic Blog Community. I have made many friends in that year….from across the world. I shall always treasure your friendships from which I have learnt much. Inevitably, one develops closer interaction with some more so than with others. I am no exception and shall always remember with great fondness some of my friends here.
Wait! This is NO Farewell….Nay!
First, I need to say ‘Thank You’ to ALL of you….perhaps…perhaps more so to a few….nonetheless heartfelt gratitude to ALL!
Second, I’ve had to take stock of ‘Time’, ‘Interests’, ‘Obligations’ and many other ‘Commitments’ – some of which have been ‘short-circuited’ to enable me to indulge my penchant for blogging.
I have been re-assessing priorities which necessitates spending less time on my blog….and less frequently as I have been wont to do over the past year.
I shall continue to write my poetry and post some of it though not as often and as regularly as in the past.
Your posts will be accessed as often as possible, though I may not be able to comment as religiously as I am inclined to do…..
Hopefully, you will continue to visit my blogs and comment as you feel inclined.
Keep your eye on my blogs….

God Bless!

Love and Hugs!
