ENCIRCLED~ by Indira Sadanandan


 

 

ENCIRCLED

I am a clock
Ticking on twenty four hours a day
And ring at every hour
To let the world know my existence

Twelve hours are marked in between
Every five minutes
My needles fixed on a pole are
Walking and walking to reach no where
I am the power to control and order
People on the globe so much
‘Do this’, ‘don’t do that’ ‘no time for you’
‘Wake up’ ‘go to bed’
Every activity minor or major are under
My control, no escape from my notice
The world is encircled by me
In my endless circulation

Jesus Is Alive And Well~ by Marie Falck


 

 

Jesus Is Alive And Well

If the tomb that was recently discovered
Actually has the bones
Of Jesus, my Saviour, and Lord
Then, for we humans, all hope is gone
Because Jesus was a popular name
All those centuries ago
I say those bones belong to someone else
And not my loving Lord
The Bible clearly states
That Jesus, in bodily form
Did ascend into heaven
And from that time on
His precious Holy Spirit is keeping
Our hope and faith alive and strong
And I know when I enter Heaven’s Gates
With joy I’ll look upon my Saviour’s face
And I’ll know that’s it’s really Him
Because the man – made prints
Of nails, that will be found
In both His hands and feet
And then I’ll joyfully cast my crown
Down at my Redeemer’s feet

Dreams~by rldubour


 

 

Dreams

Miracles do happen and dreams do come true.
A Wish is granted the wills up to you.
The will is your faith, courage and strength.
To have trust in God and give Him your thanks.
No matter how bad your life seems to be.
Always remember someone is worse off than thee.
Just look all around and see all the strife.
Your outlook will change to appreciate life.
I look at this world and the people inside.
I wonder how is this, as my heart seems to cry.
It cries out to those who never will see.
That life is our gift that God gave to thee.
Open your souls place this gift deep inside.
With all your will and your power, give it a try.
To love and be loved for just who you are.
To reach for your dreams they are all not that far.
This is our quest to achieve every goal.
To overcome obstacles this what I am told.
Miracles do happen and dreams to come true.
A wish is granted the wills up to you.

Faith

From “Confessions”
By Augustine of Hippo

faith transcends logic
pours into human spaces
empty of wisdom
momentous assent to truths
unreached by the intellect

Volcei, Etruscan, Roman
Cyclopean walls

sun-washed and serene
iron-balconied gardens
al fresco existence

narrow cobbled lanes
smiling mountaintop idyll

fine spot-painted coat
bred through ages by Nez Perce
for rugged endurance
agility, swiftness, demanded
by punishing features
of northwestern lands

standing carriage of principled pride
with a feisty resistance
imbued by Chief Joseph whose
warriors split from their treaty-damned tribe
fighting hotly to stay
near the “Heart of the Monster”
where lore fixed the birth of their kind

but the cavalry came on relentlessly
so the Indians fled for Canadian haven
from ancestral Wallowa waters
through Eagle Cap wilderness
sacred-most hunting grounds
bluecoats pursued the brave beautiful horses
for one thousand six hundred
hard mountain miles
losing twenty some battles en route

till they caught them again
just shy of their freedom at Bear Paw
to finally claim conquered blood of the day
and take Joseph’s surrender
the ponies and warriors nearly extinguished
by death on diseased reservations
while Joseph lived thirty…

FRAGILITY~by Indira Sadanandan


 

 

FRAGILITY

Yesterday I was blessed to have attended
A wedding reception party of one of our
Close family friends,where two of our
Superstars came as special guests
One in Jaguar,one in Land Rover

When I reached there I saw them
Locked in a glass cage and nobody was
Allowed to go nearby.
My friend was an ordinary man who had some
Connections with the superstars according to
Their business relationship.
I felt that the stars were in a pathetic condition,
We could see them laughing, talking to each other
Eating delicious dishes and smiling to the visitors
It was a curious and rare sight I could ever enjoy
But I felt very sad that I seriously thought of
How I could rescue them from this lock up of
Fragile love.

Atmosphere For miracles~by Marie Falck


 

 

Atmosphere For miracles

I wish I could have been there
When Jesus walked upon the raging sea
And, I wish I could have been there
And heard Him say to the fisherman:
“Leave all and come follow me”
I wish I could have been there
When He healed the leper
And made the blind eyes to see
I wish I could have been there
At the wedding feast, and be in all the excitement
When the wine was increased
And, I wish I could have been there
When He told old Zaccheus
He was coming to his house for tea
I wish I could have been there
When Jesus arose from the dead, on “Day 3″
And, I wish I could have been there
When the Angels rolled back the stone
For all to see
No, I wasn’t there, but I get so excited
When I read all about it
God put it there, in His Holy Word
Just for encouragement, for you and me
He’s here, right now, in our midst you see
With a healing touch, so come, and get free
He’ll fill your heart with joyful singing
And make those joybells start a ringing

Soul Whispers~by Neetu Wali


 

 

Soul Whispers

Eyes open wide and deep
Lips slip a smile
As eyes touch your heart
Sun of wisdom rises
And every dark corner wisens
In the light of self
Flowers of love bloom
That is when
You don’t desire
You don’t deserve
Just observe and absorb

Spaghetti~ by rldubour


 

 

Spaghetti

I just made reservations to this all-Italian place.
So my dear be ready I will pick you up at eight.
We can go have dinner and maybe to a show.
Or we can just go sit and park and talk of things we know.
I think you’ll like the ristorante, that’s the Italian word.
All my friends they recommend this is what I heard.
We’ll go and eat some pasta just like mama makes.
And even though we’re not Italian I am sure that we can fake.
We’ll have spaghetti dinner and nice sweet glass of wine.
And we won’t care how long it takes we have lots of time.
You can take your time to order their menu is really neat.
There is homemade lasagna, tortellini or ziti Calabrese.
With garlic bread, garden salad, you can order what you please.
Ravioli, fettuccini, order anything you see.
This is what my plans are just want you to know.
So dear I’ll pick you up by eight for dinner and a show.
R.L. DuBour
