Smile #22: IT'S THE SABBATH


a sunlight comes through
drying up the morning dew
while birds sing their odes anew
it's the Sabbath all of you.

out of bed, get ready
prepare soul and body
my God is waiting
to church I hurry.

Rejoice, rejoice 
through the road of noise
making way a voice
it's Sunday enjoy!

Smile #21: GRAVITY

This was written for
Poets United's Midweek Motif:
"Gravity"



I feel like I am no longer happy
anymore, anymore
I feel like I am losing energy
 more and more
no one's coming to my rescue
nobody at the door
no one's listening to my blues
I'm cold and all forlorn

To the sky I reached
said a prayer to Him who sees
send someone to come to my needs
I'm losing ground I'm so weak

and then He says;
I'm sending out my gravity
to pull you down onto your feet
fend off the wings of misery
that threaten to fly you off 
to somewhere dreary...

I feel like no one loves me
I need someone, I need love
I feel that its wrong to be free
I need a friend, a second chance
here I am floating all empty
I need a happy ending  

To the sky I reached
said a prayer to Him who sees
send someone that feels my needs
I'm losing ground I can't breathe

and then He says:
I'm sending out my gravity
to make you stand on your feet
and drain you of misery
that makes you unhappy

and so he answered my plea: 
I eventually got my gravity
she helps me feel grounded you see
gives me honor and dignity,
I no longer feel so alone and weak
I have found my true love indeed...

all smiles and thanks 
to the God of everything.

Smile #20: CHINESE NIGHT-OUT

This was written for Poets United's Poetry Pantry #272



What would happen
one evening
on a day of the weekend
Saturday or Sunday?

Craving Chinese
their spicy cuisine
made with pork, 
chicken, or beef
looking good on 
a porcelain plate.

Brother offers
to treat me and mother
for dinner
at Chinese place.

Lovely night
Very nice
raining outside
short drive.
heart so tamed.

Waitress happy
Clerks happy
Everyone laughing
Night of memories.
Feast away...

Tasty meal
a great deal
made me feel
warm and thrilled
our smiles were real.
Happy for days!
