Malta


Mediterranean island, where one finds so much to do
Abundant days of sunshine and the sea is limpid blue
Lavender, thyme and laurel; history spreads in rich galore
The temples, feasts, devotion bring religion to the fore.
Acclaimed for fruit and honey and the fish that’s brought to shore.

This is a friendly nation; you’ll be welcomed by a toast
To the best of health intended to last long while she’s your host.

Abundance

A is for apathy, “You all know you are!”

B is for itching, “Why can’t I have a car?”
U is for the umbilical cord. You never cut from Ma.
N is for neutral, “Why should you take a stand?”

D is for dependent, “Hey, one always needs a hand!”
A is for angry, “Well, why the hell shouldn’t I be?”
N is for nostalgia, ‘cause in the past we’re free.
C is for the ocks ;) who run the whole damn show!.
E is for euthanasia, “When your old just GO!”

And all that spells abundance, in case you could not tell?
Or went to school in Texas and never learned to spell.

'Youth Day'




Y - yesterday, we had this bright future
O - owned by us
U - under African Skies
T - they promised us the world, in
H - hindsight it was never theirs to promise

D - daily grace are attained from God
A - and that is the only surety in a world where 
Y - young people are still being used as pawns

In South Africa, we celebrate Youth Day every year on 16 June. It commemorates a pivotal point in our history 16 June 1976 in the fight against apartheid.

Love came down at Christmas

L Long ago travelled Kings
O Opened their minds to prophecies
V Visiting from afar they brought gifts of Gold, Fracincense and Myrrh
E Eastern Star guiding them lighting the way

C Company of Heavenly Host
A Allelujah! Angels appeared to Shepherds, telling Savior born
M Manger for bed wrapped in cloths in Town of David
E Evangelically proclaimed Christ the Lord

D December 25th designated day
O On which we recollect
W Why/way Christ entered our world
N Nativity only part of His story

A A new testament
T Tells of new covenant between God and His people

C Christ's coming to Earth
H Hailed as new born King, Holy
R Risen Lord, righteous redeemer, 
I Intercedes for us as
S Spiritual Saviour to save sinners souls
T Time for Truth, Trust, Trinity
M Man's belief in God of Love,  
A As Father Son and Holy Spirit
S Shall be saved

911—Underground Overtime Night Workers (Acrostic)

Nine Eleven—a dark day lives of many workers were stolen away
Individuals worked all night; stayed; without seeing the light of day
Nose to the grindstone below floor level they labored productively
Effectively moving papers, stacks, racks, speedily and so selectively

Encouraged basement overtime; more taxes paid; they worked away
Loyal workers; dedicated to the cause; laziness to them—not a gift!
Earnestly they called home to say, “Honey I am working another shift”
Encouraged by those who stayed; coffee and donuts— no need to pay
Encroachment above they never did see as terror stuck during the day
Night’s darkness envelope the light; underground darkness of the night

Nelson Mandela

N – either one of his parents
E - nvisage the route he would take,
L - eaving behind the security of a place called home, 
S - earching for that elusive freedom 
O - nly a few had the joy to experience
N - ever shying away from a challenge

M - aking the decision to give up his “freedom”
A - lbeit with rudiments, pursuing a dream, many dreamt but
N - ever had the tenacity to turn into reality,
D - arkened days with years of imprisonment followed
E - arnestly trying to convince the world that, 
L - isting people differently, because of skin color build
A - nimosity and negate the fruition of freedom…

Jimi Hendrix..Rock Star and Legend

J	imi, a talented guitarist
I	n the world of Rock
M	ade young girls cry 
I	n his world, how he shined!

H	ard wired to play
E	arly love for guitars
N	ever found Nirvana 
D	ying each day, endless pain
R	iding strings of his music	
I	n his mind, demons taunted	
X	iting  too soon, young legend!

Space Age

            Space Age
	
Ships float up forever out
Pilots who once sailed seas find new spirit 
Airborne crafts fill the air 
Children grow into machines that take them away
Earth was once their only home
And now the universe in endless boundaries is theirs
Geared up for foreign playgrounds, gone in an instant 
Eternity is only minutes away and just beginning there

WELCOME TO THE BLUENOSE

If these winds prevail and those whitecaps stretch
you will soon feel the Bluenose slice the sea; 
Need sets our course, but adventure etches
a compass on hearts, sets each drifter free. 
Friend, just get your sea legs, fear not the waves.
I'm an ole salt dog, sure ‘nuff, yet this ship,
sailing, schools me still, conditions the brave.
Right as rain, this life, but no fisher slips 
behind in duties lest a nor’easter whip.

Like my father and his father a’fore,
a  calling I heard, a trade that e’er will
bridge the past to today’s uncertain shore. 
Over and over, we cast these nets 'til
troubled brows lower for all onboard dread
water hauls. Damn cod drowsing in deep beds. 

I will teach you much, maybe swing the lamp,  
Will  you try and listen, do pride you stow,
ease your mind for I see those eyes are damp
your  young wife, you miss, Lad, aye, this I know.
mind the sails, then, and let us steady go!






About this Poem

The Bluenose was a fishing schooner so iconic of Canada that it is on our dime. 
It fished for cod, but was also is renown for winning races. 
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bluenose

Waterhauls: a fishing net that catches nothing but water

Swinging the lamp: Telling sea stories. Referring to lamps slung from the deckhead 
which swing while at sea. 

Steady go: A command to the helmsman to maintain the course carefully.
