Weathering the Storms and keeping Warm

Weathering the Storms and keeping Warm

A Poem by Patricia Wedel

Someday I want to be a Cardinal with fledglings... 

Taking on the Spirit of LADY LIBERTY 

MAKING IT WORTHWHILE TO ASPIRE and grow 

as Fledglings in a New World where 

Liberty Rings for Everyone...  

Give me your Poor and wandering Souls 

We will teach them to toil and grow 

fruits and vegetable and live 

off the Land  to show appreciation 

for Opportunity...   

Sunflowers and Sunshine 

Homes made from Trees 

that give Shelter by the Sea... 

Where Birds and Bees can be free 

in the Land of the Free...

Your words are so beautiful and exhilarating, dear Pat.
They speak to me of the beyond beautiful life you've been blessed with.
Your words speak to me of the love, compassion and sheer generosity that you have in your heart for all the less fortunate. Your yearning to share your gifts and blessings.
And that makes you a truly divine subject of God.

Martin Luther King's dream is still not realized. While everyone yearns for that vision to become a reality, one wonders what's keeping it from manifesting. On the one hand, the answer is simple: it's us. However, we are very complex and complicated, and to achieve any sort of understanding or unity seems impossible. In any case, one needs a vision of a better world, and this piece offers that.

A beautiful tribute to the land of freedom, where everyone is free and no longer part of the huddled masses who long for freedom and so many who died to obtain it. The Statue of Liberty a symbol of that freedom. Lovely narrative poem, dear Pat. Thank you so very much for sharing...

I enjoyed this one Patricia. It reminded me of this song.
"Give us your daily bread
We have no shoes to wear
No place to call our own
Only this cross to bear
We are the multitudes
Lend us a helping hand
Is there no love anymore
Living in the promise land?
Living in the promise land
Our dreams are made of steel
The prayer of every man
Is to know how freedom feels" David Lynn Jones

I sense a bit of the good book in this. "Behold, the fowls of the air". In hard times, that thought has often come to mind. Very nice writing, my friend.

You and I come from the same kind of stock--very poor, hardworking folk.
I think the title says it all “Weather the storms and keep warm” It’s funny we destroy a visible nature but worship an invisible God. We should worship a visible nature. Nature is strange too looks so inviting and harmonious but underneath its eat or be eaten. Nice one Pat

Ah! I see what youve done here Pat, covering nature so eloquently yet it builds into another poem entirely that can be a featured write on fourth of july too!
Ill need to remember that one, seeing as im not writing very much of anything these days, although maybe santa and baby jeebus, along with the easter bunny could merge into a superpower of animation..... But best not invite Mohammad, as i hear he is a bit of a diva sith his "no pictures, or death!" rule.
Now, if you'll excuse me, im away to write the next simpsons! 😊

good point and a tribute to the great statue;. what fears me the most is losing our freedom and liberty... maybe the fledgling birds can say a prayer for us and hope it gets into the ears of the conspirators....lovely words Pat ,as always....keep praying....
