First Rains

Last night the first rains fell ...
Last night, 
God's Grace I felt 

The manifestation of a new hope... 

Along with the promise of a fruitful season.

I watched as the first rains fell last night:

I watched in the dark as the dry earth cried tears ...

Beautiful tears, that brought back life.

As each droplet fell from the open sky, 

As each droplet of faith percolated into the ground... 

Last night, 

I watched as the first rains fell.

Gentle Breeze

Gentle breeze:
Whispering winds;
Tamed gales..

Take me,
Ferry me,
I have spread my wings
To your nature;
My discordant voice sings
To an Island  -

Take me away;
And place me to a piece of land,
Isolated by water,

Take me away;
And place me in a fort of solitude;
Surrounded by memories of Edward and Clarisse;
That cast a smile on my face;
And masks my tears ...

Take me away;
Oh, gentle breeze!!!
To my fort...
Where I draw strength from the beauty of words;
Where my might lies in scribbling scrolls of thoughts
At my experiences costs
Speaking of all those losses that transform me to a formidable force
And impart beliefs I shan't divorce
 In metaphoric courts

Take me away;
You tamed gales
To an island:
Scaled gray -
Shaded in black and white
With waves of water kissing the shores
Gently caressing the soles
Of my feet
My legs immersed in the mud
An emblem of my troubles
Erased by bodies of water that nibble the earth and pull back

Take me to an island
Where a former love
Makes merry with a little child

Take me to an island,
So that when I get there
I will spread my hands out
And arm the caption with a smile

Basking in God's Grace -
And leave a trail of happiness
Take flight in shades;
And keep time on my wrist;
Ask a companion to freeze this moment,
Capture it on a picture and own it.

A Verse For Harvest

A verse for harvest

 A reason to praise...

 Fruits of an academic voyage 
Against the odds of economic bondage

 All in His name
 Thanks all due
 Faith in Him as promises delivered as true

 A verse for harvest
 A season to change 

To learn to thank God for all strength
Counting life’s blessings 
Harvest celebration

 A verse for harvest 
Believing and faith 
The chance to give back

 Watch as my seed grows
 I am fruitful as my bowl has fruits full
 And multiply my blessings through the multiplication of seeds
 Such as prayer and faith, song and health
Sowing into the ground as waters of hard work continue flowing

 When the grass is green, lash 
And the granary is filled to the bream 
When the ground I tread on is fertile
 And rainfall and sunshine come in adequate amounts 
When the seeds have been planted 
And the harvest is safeguarded
 I will sing a verse for harvest

 I sing it now, I sing it forever more 

A verse for harvest
