A Single Glass of Water

Oceans are deep

And rivers are fast

Water has power

The dye then is cast.

 

No life could exist

No land would be shaped

Through use of that liquid

Our world is landscaped.

 

We drink it and bathe

Even play on its back

We hide from its power

It takes quite a knack.

 

Sit back and give thanks

For that drink in your hand

The cells of all life

Through water is planned.

Witnesses

 

The stories I could tell,

Said the window to the wall.

Lovers kissed and meetings missed,

And oh that awful brawl!

 

I have a tale to tell!

The door said opening wide.

Of people hurrying and others scurrying,

With children by their side.

 

We see all! They said with glee.

The floors were chiming in.

To and fro, don’t you know,

They walk our polished grin!

 

The rugs and chairs felt left out,

We know what’s going on!

They all sit down and crack a frown,

Their secrets then are drawn!

 

Watchers everywhere ,

Could say what you’re about.

But just today, they will not say,

Of that there is no doubt!

Changing Hues

The colour of my words

Is an ever-changing hue.

It shows what I am thinking

In the things I say and do.

 

Bright and cheery colours

Of Yellow and of Gold,

Mean my spirit’s lifting

My stories will be bold.

 

But when the colours deepen

To Purple and to Red,

Then my story changes

The tales may conjure dread.

 

Blues and greens are colours

That suggest a kinder tale.

I pray I’ll do an awesome job

Of which you could avail!

 

Black’s a colour on it’s own

A Darkness it implies.

Should I write a missive

When on evil it relies?

 

Join with me I pray thee,

And wander through my words.

Enjoy the rainbow I employ

With all those nouns and verbs.

Signs

 

 

I wish that I could see

A signpost up ahead

“Well done girl you’re winning!”

If only it had said.

 

Instead I fear the opposite

The signs are very clear

“Caution, Speed Bumps Ahead”

I’m in a new frontier.

 

“Stop, Proceed Slowly”

My love life does it mean?

I’m really not that kind of girl

It’s not where I have been.

 

“Wrong Way” “No Exit”

My future perhaps?

“Dead Zone” ahead

There appears to be gaps!

 

“Wide Turn” ahead

Are you talking about me?

“No Turn Around”

I’m confused now you see!

 

“Do Not Turn Left”

“Do Not Turn Right”

“Road Work Ahead”

It’s one hell of a fight!

 

Confusion sets in

As I’m ordered about

Signs are everywhere

Upon my chosen route.

 

 

A statement on life

These signs seem to be

We can choose to listen

Or we can choose to be free.

 

A caveat I must declare

If freedom you embrace

“Caution” up ahead

A hefty fine you’ll face!

Twisted Nicely

Nicely Twisted

Yep that’s me

Looking for angles

That others can’t see.

 

Straight lines are boring

They’ll just trip you up

I’m liking the curves

That’s my kinda cup.

 

Surprisingly twisted

At the end I am thinking

But the story has a finish

You’ll miss if you’re blinking.

 

I play with the words

My sandbox of choice

I’ve something to say

And they are my voice.

 

Thank you for reading

This foray of sorts

It had to be said

Cuz, I’m not into sports!

Code Complete

 

Coding’s complete,

The DNA’s done

Personalities written

It really was fun.

 

The creatures are finished

They’re all in their places

From the workings inside

To the look on their faces.

 

Now we sit back

And see what we’ve made

And hope we’ve been right

And then wait to get paid.

 

The work that we do

It’s done on the run

Creators for hire

Our job here is done.

 

Now on to the next world

In galaxies far

I think it is close

At the very next star.

Walk With Pride

They can’t really see me

They don’t know that I’m here.

Then why all the fuss

The hysterical fear?

 

This Halloween craze

Is really bizarre.

People pretending

To be what we are.

 

They wear their costumes

And go out for a lark.

Then I and my kind

Can wander the park.

 

I know you’re pretending

But I’m certainly not.

And once in a while

It ok to get caught.

 

I hide from your view

The rest of the year.

But today I’m quite close

Inhaling your fear.

 

Over your shoulder

Just by your side,

Are others like me

The dead walk with pride.

 

Move Along

 

Move along,

Move along now

There’s nothing to see

Don’t furrow your brow.

 

You cannot stop moving

If you want to live

There’s work to be done

And so much to forgive.

 

From birth until death

There is a progression

With life in the middle

It’s at your discretion.

 

The choices you make

On this journey of yours

May help or may hinder

For those keeping scores.

 

Now is the time

Take stock of your self

Should you be living

Or left back on a shelf?

 

Move along,

Move along now

There’s so much to see

If you only know how.

On the Wall

 

                           A fly on the wall

                          We’d all like to be

                          A different perspective

                         On the world we would see.

 

No one would know

That we were so near

Gathering gossip

On those we hold dear.

 

Our size makes it easy

To wander about

Close and then far

Even inside and out.

 

There’s only one problem

I can see from this blotter

Wielded with accuracy

The dreaded fly swatter!

The Voice of Christ

 

I heard the voice of Christ

Whispered on the wind.

He knows what I am thinking

He knows that I have sinned.

 

He speaks to me in dreams

His message oh so clear,

Live my life according

To the tenets He holds dear.

 

To speak His words to others

Is just and clear and true,

But live each day by His word

That’s the thing to do.
