From Hills of Joy

From Hills of Joy As early morning dew glistens And jewels of Heaven shine May I too shine for You Lord Bringing Joy unto Your Heart Laughter to Your Spirit Take from me all wicked ways Evil thought and attitudes Preserve my soul for You That I may dwell and sing In Your Presence ever […]

Early Prayer

Early Prayer Each dew drenched morning, early a solitary man arose to the music of the dawning. Cool amid hazy were those first lights, when I’d see his lonely figure, striding forth, with joyous steps, toward a misty mountain place to pray and seek his Father’s Face, upon that waiting mountainside. Once there, He’d find […]

Capriciousness

Capriciousness Foxes had holes, and birds had their nest; But Christ was grateful wherever He’d rest. This was, quite often, some grassy knoll bed With no pillow to rest His weary head. Tranquility’s peace would always be His, In spite of the burden and endless needs, From confused people, the lost, and diseased. He baptized, […]

A Tear

A Tear And there He hung Before the multitude Offering His Life, His Heart and Soul, His Love for the whole world In worship to His Father; However, did those prying eyes understand The single tear He shed, Was grief for them?

Unconditional Forgiveness

Unconditional Forgiveness Forgiveness is no more a choice in this age of famine, Bloody wars, divorce, denial and racial bigotry. If you can win the wrestle, that hard wrestle to forgive, Peace will tenure in its place, swallowing the negative! We must forgive the misery – the memory of abuse, The trauma suffered as a […]

True Gain

True Gain It would profit nothing Should one’s body burn in martyrdom and one not love. Clearly these words state That loveless sacrifice is death do not the words request compassion without compromise? The word with us in partnership while suffering a cup to sip does say to pray, to go, to give yet oneself […]

Substance in Shadow

Substance in Shadow Shadows are different, they seldom are warm, Some are quite chilly, unpleasant, forlorn. Especially when shadows come from the fame, Of one who is know, to the public by name. Fixed quietly in shadow, obscure and unknown, As a solitary substance, I stand there, alone. My festering feelings, ranted and raved. Ugly […]

The Promise

The Promise Through winter’s coat, sun-rays bugle As nature murmurs to her bowers Warming her earth and snowy mantle While waking snowdrops, winter’s flower. Each crystal morning offers peace, Bringing hope to spring’s elation To those who see God’s masterpiece And extol with veneration.Cold birds puffed up, in winter’s pride, Feathered breasts daubed blushing-red. Snowflakes […]

A Tear – New

A Tear And there He hung Before the multitude Offering His Life, His Heart and Soul, His Love for the whole world In worship to His Father; However, did those prying eyes understand The single tear He shed, Was grief for them?

the perfect friend

the perfect friend

they hear with eyes intent on what i say.
eyes stay fixed and do not flitter,
side to side, or wander far away.
the tilt of head, encouraging,
and with their gentle smile,
i feel special, confident to speak
soon,
i discern that something, is unique;
inhibited i falter, words then swiftly fade;
for this rapt listener is rare.
no interruption do they make.
they are not compelled to have
their say.
when we part, a warmth surrounds —
self-worth is strong, i strive no more;
at least no more today. 

 

Dedicated to Darlene Cunningham, a true friend to so many and to me.
