Above All

 

Above All (Randyjw; October 18, 2017)

 

Man can plan

and G-d can laugh

harvest wheat

apart from chaff

Join the deluge

with His tears

crying buckets

with our cares

Foil plans

of foes’ attacks

Curtail man

and set him back

Strew his path

with rocks or gold

display His wrath

to see unfold

Calm the seas

and stay His hand

What are we

but foolish men

Home (Randyjw; October 16, 2017)

 

Watching the embers glow,

as they warm both soul and hearth

Kindled by the sparks from your heart

in this cozy place called home

Re-a-lized

Re-a-lized (Randyjw; October 13, 2017)

 

I won’t wait

for the hush of a goodbye

I won’t wait

for my final tears to be cried

The essence of everything

I’ve tried to verbalize

I hope will, by now,

have been truly realized

Value(s)

Value(s) (Randyjw; October 12, 2017)

 

Self-worth is not equal to shelf-worth;

You are priceless —

neither priced less, nor prized less.

Flame


 

Flame (Randyjw; October 12, 2017)

 

If I could hold a candle to yours,

that would then touch mine,

the flame combined

would be enough to blind

Burnout

Burnout (Randyjw; October 11, 2017)

 

All this time

I was looking down

My beautiful stone

was on the ground

Perhaps it formed

inside the earth

as it was born

and given birth

Its name derived

from worldly kings

the malachite swirls

of green within

No fool’s gold found

inside this stone

Its polish ground

by hand, my own

Perhaps it burned

from out of space

to rock my world

ignite my place

But had I known

its magnetic field north

my orbit flown

had been off course

I couldn’t right it

I was done

I melted in

forever sun

 


 

Update / October 18, 2017: I had it in my mind about gemstones and jewelry materials, like gold, platinum, tritanium, etc. possibly coming from combustible matter exploding in space, etc. (Yeah, sure…. Right…) Anyways, I just finished reading an October 17th article indicating this possibility: Hotz, Robert Lee. “Neutron Stars Forge Gold”. The Wall Street Journal; October 17, 2017; Page A3.
