Whispers wandering across a sky

Like sundry thoughts floating by

Fond memories and wistful sighs

Covering truth that dream belies

Solid world of rocks and stones

Aims and goals and golden thrones

For a few minutes will bemuse

Till death arrives and these we lose

The lord of death said please behold

Of wealth and land to you be told

Offers for which men strive so hard

Discerning ones will soon discard

Faith and sense demands to know

What tempting offers fail to show

That steady one that changes not

When whispery wanderings forgot


O Lord, many temptations and desires beset the mind, instead of squandering your gift of time with these, let me embrace your gift of discernment that dissolves them quickly. I lovingly accept your gifts of faith, hope and love that dispel cravings and selfishness.
