Poetry

S P L I N T E R E D System

A splinter had wedged itself into his toe. It hurt on its way out, but on the other side of pain…healing and regrowth.

Song of the Stones

You may silence the people, but never the truth. Stones will cry out if these voices are stilled.

He Took the Stand

Jesus insured security the day He died upon a tree

Oh, what a Savior we have in Jesus Christ!

Just Not That Into You

I pray the distractions that once pushed You aside

will become less important in our daily lives

and that the things we choose to fill our days

will be things that please You and bring You praise

An Ode to Covid-19

A demonic, evil, hellish concoction Has been released upon the earth Its source is a reason for conjecture We’re fighting it for all that we’re worth! Mitigation is a new word we have learned And it has changed the way we live We no longer have freedom to move about Or a handshake or hug […]

I WILL LOVE

I can’t love you well when my focus is plainly “How much in my favor will  this love thing play?”

COMFORT IN THE SPIRIT

The spirit appears in the midst of darkness, wiping away the little girl’s tears, chasing away the child’s fears, piecing together the shattered shards of hearts.

Outstretched Arms

How wide would you open your arms if someone asks how much you love the Lord?

Refinement Through Fire

Ignite a light inside my soul, and let it burn away the old…Let it burn for the rest of my life. Let it burn for the rest of all time.

Winds of Change

She lifts her hands Extended, palms open-Completely letting go

In This Hour

All is within your power,
and yet, this cup remains;
and so, I beg you
Take this cup from me.

Beautifully Made

Every cell woven in a tapestry of love

It is all a reflection of who you are

Come Holy Spirit

Come Holy Spirit as we seek, ask and knock for your presence.

Asking in faith, believing in Your promise, we come with expectation.

Light Just Simply Wins

And I recall the vessel that so comports to darkness — gives it occasion to breathe and occupy.
“The darkness that wins is the one we invited in!”

Deeper

Overwhelming thoughts bring my mind to surrender

To the garden of my soul, I return, to find my Maker waiting for me.

Love Letter

You anxiously await their response—

Will they care what you have to say?
