Christmas Day

Christmas day

can you hear the bells ring

sitting around the Christmas tree

may you have a merry time

being a part of a family

may each gift bring joy

let the season of good will

bring love into your home

as the neighbours come round

or seeing close friends

greeting loved ones

let this time never end

the festivities have just begun

food is on the table

wine is being poured

crackers are pulled

best wishes bestowed upon all

A flock of sparrows

I saw a flock of sparrows

as they passed over my garden

they formed a shape an arrow

as if to point the way

bringing about a commotion

they traveled above

stirring up chaos

reminding the over birds

that we who journey in the skies

have but one purpose

for each and everyone of us

to follow them as they fly by

Mad Max: The Time Has Come

the time has come

to search for the truth

in an unjust land

leaving behind only doubt

taking the essentials

preparing for the coming onslaught

peace shall be found

when war has been raged

and the landscape ravaged

those that resist enslaved

have now found their freedom

in the one chosen to liberate them

Rainy Days

rainy days

lead to contemplation

of past times

reminiscing distant dreams

of our lives

that have been spent

but renew again

we are sometimes left in wonder

of times long ago

which become our past

a score is settled

and those debts paid

and our dues

brought about a replacement

of what has been rendered
