Xecuting Perfection

A preachy poem, to participate in ABC Wednesday....check out the other X entries!
as well as Inspire Me Monday


Executing Perfection 

Of all the executions to which Christ could have succumbed
Have you ever understood that crucifixion was the only one?
An executioner was needed for that particular tortured death.
All other forms, one could execute on oneself, to stop one’s breath.

Stoning? Pull out the corner stone of a fragile wall.
Hanging? A rope, a belt, a stool from which to fall.
Immolation? Gasoline and a fire stick
Suffocation? A plastic bag will do the trick.

The list goes on and on for one to commit suicide.
 So why was it that crucifixion
Was the method of execution perfection?
That is for you to ponder, for you to decide.

Wrestling With A Heart Attack




Participating in ABC Wednesday letter W...with an instrumental for the young at heart♫♪

1. Blond and blue eyed in her jeans, gripping the wheel of her jeep
Casting her eyes down my way making my heart leap.
She passes by smiling and, tapping the horn, it beeps.
I’m on the side lines
with high hopes she will notice me.
Wrestlin’ with my heart,
she hamstrings  me.

Refrain
So wrangle this, and wrangle that.
I’m all a twist. Imagine that.
~
2. Hallways are crowded yet I feel all alone of all things
Books by her desk, she grabs her bag by its purse strings.
She stops to talk, and I am saved the bell, it rings.
I’m on the side lines
with high hopes she will notice me.
Wrestlin’ with my heart,
she hamstrings  me.

Refrain


I’m wrestling with a love attack.
She has me up against my back
She’s tied my heart.  There is no slack.
I hope she will notice me.
Wrestlin’ with my heart,
she hamstrings  me.

So wrangle this, and wrangle that.
I think I’m whipped. Imagine that.
(repeat and mixed)
Wrestling with a love attack. I’m all a twist
She has me up against my back. I’ll wrangle that.
She’s wrestling with a love attack. I think I’m whipped
She has me up against my back.  I’ll wrangle that.

She’s tied my heart
there is no going back.

Linking to Alphabe-Thursday Letter D



Refrain:
I woke up and found I’d had a dream,
A vivid little dream.
Effect on me is overwhelming.
You were right outside my open door,
A fact I can’t ignore.
My dream quest is so all consuming.

I am ready now
Believe me
I can say right now
No faking
I’m back on the road to life
I’m taking
You right with me
I am on a dream quest

Refrain

I am on a quest, dream quest.
(mixed)
You’ve always been there.
Showing that you care.
I am now aware.
My quest’s beginning.
I am on a dream quest.

Refrain

I am on a quest, dream quest
(mixed)
I am ready now
Believe me
I can say right now
No faking
I’m back on the road to life
I’m taking
You right with me
I am on a dream quest

Change Is In The Air




(You may have to pull the cursor to the right to get it to load)
Participating in Alphabe-Thursday letter C
and Inspire Me Monday
Check out other entries!


1. Listen in as I tell a tale

Of why change is in the air



Refrain:

Feel the shift
Of attitude and understand my place.
I have learned
The ultimate in understanding grace.

2. Used to be that I thought my plans
Were the ticket out of here.
My puny plan just would not congeal.
But I kept on,  I’d persevere.

3. People prayed that I’d find my way
But I scoffed at them. They were weird.
I walked a straight line and faked the good life but
 I really never really understood.

Refrain

 Always set the cart before the horse
Instead of just believing.
Evidence is all around me.
Now I have the chance
To change my core.

Revised refrain:
Feel the lift
Of attitude and understanding grace
I have learned
The ultimate in knowing my own place.

4. Daily now I look up to the sky,
I imagine how He’ll appear.
I see the world thru diffr’ent eyes,
The chaos holds no appeal.

5. Navigating thru my life of trials
Is easier you can see.
The change in me is so much better now,
no regrets and no “what ifs “ for me.

Revised refrain
Change is in the air 6X

Universal Truth

Participating in ABC Wednesday letter U....check out the other blogs!

T'is the season to talk about Christ and his birth, but more important is his Resurrection, thus I offer a poem:



Universal Truth 

For your perusal, contemplation:
The Resurrection verses Creation…
Of the two, The Resurrection is the bigger deal.
It was more intimate, personal, more real.
You see, creation is merely an equation
Arranging time, space, elementation.
But to cover the sins of all mankind
Took deep thought, sacrifice, a caring mind.
So the power expended was greater indeed.
We are to think on these things, in time of need
Actually, you should think it daily, today, tomorrow…
You’ll not regret it; it will lift your sorrow.


OK, I totally made up a word, poetic licence and all...
elementation: the adhesion of all physical laws in nature.

Happy Holidays, Merry Christmas, Cheers♥

Battle Hymn of the Republic

Cannot remember who taught me these verses, but I passed them on to my kids, my Girl Scout Troop and car pool kids.  Just wondered if anyone else was subjected to such whimsy♫♪

Participating in Alphabe-Thursday letter B.  Check out the other participants!
These tongue twisting verses go to the tune of the Battle Hymn of the Republic:

1. One pink porpoise popped up the hole
The other pink porpoise popped down 
One pink porpoise popped up the hole
The other pink porpoise popped down 
One pink porpoise popped up the hole 
The other pink porpoise popped down  
As one pink porpoise popped up the hole 
The other pink porpoise popped down


Refrain
Glory, glory how peculiar
Glory, glory how peculiar
Glory, glory how peculiar 
As one pink porpoise popped up the hole 
The other pink porpoise popped down


2. One free fly flew up the flue
The other free fly flew down...etc.

3. One warm worm wiggled up the walk
the other warm worm wiggled down...etc.

I'm sure more verses could be made up but these were enough to get everyone singing♫♪

Now that this is stuck in your head....deal with it! and have a nice day♥

Thunder in the Mountain




chaotic instrumental....with lyrics attuned to nature's wrath.  See what you think♥
You may need to move the cursor all the way to the right to get it to load.

Time for T....an entry for ABC Wednesday♫♪



1. There may be thunder in the mountains and thunder on the plains,
There may be rocks along the road and heartache down the lane.
Floods run down the hillside and fire takes the trees.
There's times when earth just opens up wide
And swallows all its needs.

You fill my future perfectly.
We can face each others fears,
Even when we're wrapped in
Darkest night.

Refrain:
Thunder in the mountain
Precedes a future imperfect.
Rumbling our world apart,
Our love it will dissect.

Time will be on our side,
As we chart the course of our lives
Hanging on and focused
On our fight.

2. Illness may besiege us or we will face calamity.
We will feel like falling, collapsing to our knees.
We have just a lifetime to meet our destiny.
But know that love will hold together
When thunder claps its hands.

~

Refrain

3. You may hear the thunder pounding through your veins.
As grief has taken hold of your life expanding wounds and pains.
Tears will salt our lifetime, and test our love's stronghold
But we will face the storms together
When thunder traps our peace.

Refrain

Heaven and earth may change their course but we'll pass through it all.
Love is on our side, nothing can penetrate that wall.

You fill my future perfectly.
We can face each other’s fears,
Even when we're wrapped in
Darkest night.

Refrain

Time will be on our side,
As we chart the course of our lives
Hanging on and focused
On our fight.

Refrain (2X)

Thunder in the mountain, love will pass the test
Thunder in the mountain, thunder put to rest.

Aqua's End



An instrumental incorporating ocean waves!
Starting all over going, through the alphabet with Jenny Matlock♫ Alphabe-Thursday letter A
Check out other entries!
(You may have to move the cursor to the right to get it to load all the way)

Aqua’s End

1. Thought you should know
We’re becoming more than friends.
Recently your oceanic eyes
Have been giving me the bends.

Falling into the depths of your heart
Is my Aqua’s End, my term for paradise.
I think I should be honest with the way I feel
And plunge into a headfirst dive.

Refrain:
I thought that you should know…Caught in your undertow…
I’m part of how your life has ebb and flow.
I thought that you should know…Caught in your undertow…
I’m part of how your life has ebb and flow.

You’re my best favorite friend, I’ll follow you to aqua’s end.
You’re my best favorite friend, I’ll follow you to aqua’s end.

I thought that you should know…Caught in your undertow…
I’m part of how your life has ebb and flow.

2. Time’s doin’ it’s thing;
Hour glass is dripping sands of time.
Lately you are like my lunar tide
Pulling me on emotion rides.

Falling into the depths of your heart
Is my Aqua’s End, my term for paradise.
I think I should be honest with the way I feel
And plunge into a headfirst dive.

Refrain

You’re my best favorite friend.
I’ll follow you to aqua’s end.
You’re my best favorite friend.
I’ll follow you to aqua’s end.

(Mixed with refrain)

Raspberry Rain



You may have to move the cursor to the right so it will play all the way through♪

My daughter has begun making up her own piano pieces and I really liked this tune, so I added some instruments and lyrics:  this is the resulting instrumental♫♪
Then I worked on a rainy Saturday and took some photos through my windshield without the wipers going....my postal truck's big windshield makes for a great filter!!!
Participating in ABC Wednesday-Letter R




1. It must have been a blustery day 
That threw you in my path to stay.
You make me feel these pelts of rain
That mark my heart with dripping stain.
The gripping storm defines our ties.
The maelstrom strikes beyond your lies.
But I’m not past our drama-rama.

Raspberry rain
Heart soaked with stain
Drizzled with pain.

2. Who said parting is such sweet sorrow?
Words I hoped never to borrow
  Sugar coated rotten tastes
Have caused myself to go to waste.
You’ve ruined me, so here’s the deal
I need time, some time to heal.
My heart’s been crushed to jam-a-rama

Raspberry rain
My heart’s down the drain
~
Splashing through deep puddles
Pulls me under
Cold and to the core
I’m drowning In this downpour
Floods of fallen tears
Break all my barriers...

3. I thought you were protecting me
But I’ll adjust, I’ll learn to be
observant of how things are done
And look out more for number one
I can’t depend, I won’t depend
On being sheltered from the rain.
You can’t be my umbrella fella


Raspberry rain
Heart soaked with stain
Raspberry rain
Heart soaked with stain
Drizzled with pain.

I'll not be your drama momma...
