The Drifting Cloud
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

By Gary James Smith
Other Poems by Gary James Smith

The clouds were gathering in the sky
There seemed no rhyme or reason
Scattered above in flotation
Unusual for this season
Wonderful tint of colors 
White and dark and grey
Hovering over His planet earth
We'll call it a cloudy day
You could not but look and wonder
Why the overcast
It had been pleasant hours before
Too bad it didn t last
Not a drop of rain
From which to seek some cover
Just a lightly blowing breeze
As above us they did hover 
Then the realization
The clouds were coming together
The gentle breeze moving them
Strange warmness in the weather
As if they were being directed
Each one knew it's part
Such transformation before my eyes
The imagery of a heart
You may have some cloudy days
And feel your under the weathet
Don't give up but look above
With God you'll feel much better
He who designed the heart
And made it living matter
Will fill your heart with thankfulness
Served on a grace and mercy platter
Offer back to Him your praise
Add a dose of singing
In your circumference of friends
Start their joybells ringing
Valentines are everywhere
Each say I love you
God's was wrapped with a scarlet ribbon
"Christ says......I love you!!!!!"

About the Poet
I came to know the Lord as my personal Saviour in January of 1972. I was married on Oct 21,1966 to my wife Linda who also loves the Lord. We have ten children and now twenty-four grand children. In Aug 2012 we got the announcement of the birth of our first GREAT grand child (a baby girl). I was thrilled to find others of like precious faith and belief in Jesus Christ. Hallelujah! What a Savior! I am presently living in Champion, Alberta, Canada but we are originally from Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario, Canada. That is where the poem Canadian Tribute to America was birthed. One Sunday as I walked across the city on my way to church I came to the top of a hill and looked across at Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan. After watching the events of the Sept 11 tragedy it was weighing on my heart and mind and the Lord gave me these words. We came to Calgary and when my oldest daughter saw this poem she said, �Dad, what�s this?� and I said a poem and she replied �Dad, that�s not a poem , that�s a song� and she then went to the piano and began to sing and play it. The result of which turned into a song entitled, A Canadian Tribute to America which she recorded on CD. garyjamessmith2005@yahoo.ca
