Holiday Train – a poem

The night is dry, and the lights glow with cheer,

As the train rolls through to announce the Holiday is here.

The pretty blue tree, an elf singing with the band,

makes the clouds festive, while in the cold we stand.

Cheeks are happily frozen, slight relief from hot cocoa cups,

a time it’s okay to make kids out of grownups.

Rushing our way home to find comfort in warm beds,

Jobs are tomorrow, tonight joyful dreams play in our heads.

A Gray Day in November-a poem.

So stark and dreary, this day of judges be,

with scarred scalawags limp in somber defeat.

Are they still useful, or just dried up debris?

Do they wish to win by revolting deceit?

 

The fragrant smell of a hard-fought victory.

Winds wave a once more respected Old Glory.

As the free people of the world cheer and sing,

Wistful crusaders rest and binge The West Wing.

A Poem of Challenges…

a voice from on high

raining down over blind hearts

 the shared truth triumphs

 

The mind plus the heart makes for change.

A whisper of placation will do,

as will just praying from your pew.

Groupthink who buys that…will derange.

Those aware are bound to outrange.

Fools who hate, fear, and deny,

why degenerate, prove your why?

He’s in his fortress, while you fight?

Him or the blood, you know which’s right.

For him, no grace, a nation’s cry.
