Giving of Thanks (2020)

in this year of want
wild with worries sore
tangled up in time
and left to melancholy

hearts are now humbled
bells set to chime
and I inhale long
dare to shirk the folly

and to look up and up
position a full posture
of gratitude galore
for these blessings You have brought me

how with reasons wrapped in rhyme
You whisper "Peace" within this war

This Time -- PAD Challenge Day 7


This Time

Waste not

that accorded wisdom

to seize and to savor this slivering

Wait not

for ideal opportunity

born of wanton maneuvering

Wish not

for mis-sized dreams

drawn out providentially for another

Will not

the time to fly

this time, love, elect to linger
