Have a fun but safe Hallowe'en!

A year has gone by and it's Hallowe'en night,
A time when we actually hope for a fright,
A dark scary time
Is the theme of this rhyme,

LOOKING FOR AN ANSWER; a poem by Ron Stewart

Looking for an answer
in this world today ...
Hate, hurt, and wars,
It's a wonder we are sane at all.

All around us
thieving and drugs ...
Mistrust and grieving
Seems like it's a must.

Can't walk the streets at night
Or trust the safety of parks
for children to play,
We always have to be aware.

What a terrible world
it has become,
For us to bear these things
and just go on.

But for the young
this will be their past.
To walk by a starving man
in the streets ..
as if he's not even a human being.

It's sad to see
the world we are leaving
for the young.
They will have to be very strong.

The world is too big to change,
What is the answer to this hell game?

Happy Birthday in Heaven by Eleanor Lambert

There was a woman so gentle and kind,
not a day goes by she does not come to mind.
A woman who sacrificed day & night
and could stretch a dollar like the widows mite.

She had very little to make ends meet,
yet her children always had plenty to eat.
There's no doubt in my mind, she was a miraculous person,
Through her sacrifices and love I know for certain,

she is receiving the fruits of her labour
in Heaven above with Jesus her Saviour....
I speak about none other than
Eva Ruby McNeil Austin my precious mom.

Happy Birthday in Heaven Mom.

Happy Canada Day 2016!

For The Love of Ki -- 2006 - June 11, 2016 Rest in peace, dear Ki.


I met him on a Friday
in the backyard of a friend
Those deep brown pools of love and need
Did common sense transcend.

By Wednesday I was baffled
Did not know what to do
His sloppy kiss and muddy feet
Across my floors; who knew?

Who knew that I could overlook
This gift of chaos in my life?
Black shining head upon my knee
Became my strength to deal with strife.

His love is unconditional
My love for him is real
Living with my Mastiff friend
Awakened me to feel.

To feel annoyance; yes, at times
While vacuuming the hair
But to feel this inner peace and joy
This love Ki freely shares

Is more than I have ever known
With him, I'm not alone
For Ki I thank my God above
How blessed I am to know this love.

My Dad ....... a poem by Eleanor Lambert

  My Dad

How lovingly I remember our Dad,
Some days good ,some days sad,
He did his best to do the right
To guide his family day and night.

Times were not easy, I remember it well
Many times he struggled, sometimes he fell
Forgiveness he asked and God in His love
Looked down with compassion from Heaven above.

He taught me many lessons
In the short years he lived
God called him home while very young
Still many memories abide within.

You are indispensable he said to me one day,
That lesson I learned well it stays with me always.
    Happy Fathers Day to our Dad in Heaven,
        And to all Fathers we  know and love,
                    who are with us today.

The Knight of The Realm .... a poem honouring a friend .... by Audrey Austin


The Knight of the realm is both gracious and kind,

His food for the soul leaves no one behind.

In touch with nature, compassionate giving,

Timeless food that he offers is everlasting.

He hungers for truth and the journey he shares

Is much sweeter fruit than apples or pears.

He does not try to teach yet the learning is good,

What he offers the world is the best of soul food.
