Master creator cum painter
Signing off with a flourish
Winding day of light replete
With signature orange streak
Across vast gray canopy bleak
Daylight folding self and gear
To be off to another hemisphere
Night benign gathering all life
Bedding saints and sinners alike
Teaching God’s evenhanded grace
Succoring all creation in His embrace
Life is cyclical and joy and grief
Come in short spans thankfully, a relief!!
It is one fact that is implacable
Infallible, inflexible, immutable
A universal truth of contrariness
Life is dynamic and brakeless!!
The more things change,
the more they remain the same.
Along the Road
I walked a mile with Pleasure
She chattered all the way;
But left me none the wiser
For all she had to say.
I walked a mile with Sorrow
And ne’er a word said she;
But oh, the things I learned from her
When Sorrow walked with me.
Robert Browning Hamilton
