Poetry and Musings

Turbulent times

Feel like restless crimes

A storm is coming

The moving wind chimes

Test my patience


I am waiting for a tide turn

My soul is worn

No crops lasting

Maybe except for the corn

Thank goodness for that


Life give me liberty and grace

I miss my deceased loved oneโ€™s face

His divine wisdom is accurate

Even when my love I displace

He is standing there with fresh maize
