In 3s

Poem By Jonathan Goldman a.k.a JGthepoet

They say events happen in 3s,
Good or bad ~ whatever they be,
After the second ~ we wait and we count,
Not knowing what the third will be.

But to me, when I am on a ‘High’,
I thank G-d who Rules from above,
For the good that happened twice today,
But HE brings me to Earth with a bump.

Two people I spoke to today,
Gave me hope for future events,
While waiting the third ~ Lo and behold,
A phone call left me in the cold.

My Credit Card had been cancelled,
It had been Compromised,
I’d have to wait for one, for another week,
Now! ! ~ Why was I surprised?

To keep us on our toes,
HE has HIS reasons too,
So we realise HE Rules the World,
And our Faith should see us through.

The clouds do darken, the rain does drop
I wonder when its going to stop.
The pitter-patter of rain does fall
Against my windows, against my wall.

Poetry! ! Poetry! ! Poetry! !

Poetry! ! Poetry! ! Poetry! !
Why are we addicted to Poetry?
We Poets who write,
All day or all night,

I Will Obey Him Whilst I Can

I wander down my Path in Life,
Glad that HE has made me so,
Content to live it as HE wishes,
Knowledgeable of HIS Will Sublime.

In Praise Of Fellow Poets

I have met many poets on these sites,
English speaking from around the World,
Who place their poems on these Urls,
Day-by-day, and night-by-night.


Memory has a funny way
Of playing tricks on you,
Whatever you think you know,
Are you certain of it too?

My 'Get Up And Go' Just 'Got Up And Went'

My ‘Get Up and Go’
Just ‘Got Up and Went’
It wasn’t intentional,
It must have been Heaven sent.
