Enigmatically Truthful

Poem By Joseph Blitch

Day begins with night; Yet shadows do not stay;
With the breaking of dawn, darkness flees away.
We observe as the wind twists limbs of a tree;
Yet enigmatically the wind itself we can't see.
Snow falls; melts into the river; flows to the sea;
Heat pulls it back into the air; again snow it'll be.
Water runs downhill and will at its course stay;
Carving through stone; mountains eating away.
Animals hop and leap the moment life's begun,
Yet a human takes some years to walk and run.
Truly into a forest you can walk only half way;
For then you will be walking out or there stay.
If a tree falls in the forest and no one is around,
Although no one hears it, it still makes a sound,
In reality a bell is an ornament until it is rung,
Of a truth a song is just words until it is sung,
A word is thought until it is penned or spoken;
For up until then it is only an unformed token.
GOD does not permit love in your heart to stay,
Knowing that love cannot be until given away!

From youth up I have heard people say;
I'm afraid this or that will happen today;
I'm afraid I'm going to catch this or that;
No ailment loiters when stripes are at bat;

Life's Search For Love

From cradle to grave we are on one quest,
Until the search is over we'll have no rest,
You find pictures of couples in an embrace,
I ask, What is the reason, What's the case?

Whispering Your Name

Deeply within the solitude of my mind,
Like on a deserted island within the sea,
My tangled thoughts hoping to unwind,
Getting spirit, soul and mind to agree.

Celebrating His Glory

Early morning, before dawning light of day,
A Whip-o-will is heard calling for light’s ray.
The host of stars seen twinkling in the night,
With dawning light seem to have taken flight.

All For Even Me

Heaven is The Lord's Devine Throne above.
From the expanse above flows His Love.
Visiting the Earth His foot stool here below;
Came His Son bringing Living Water's flow.
