"A Letter to 'My Beautiful Father.'" ~

Dear Father,


Who coverest Thyself with Light as a garment; who stretchest out the heavens like a curtain

Whom makest Your angels spirits; Your ministers a flaming fire

"You," whom walkest upon the wings of the wind; clothed, with Honour and Majesty ~

Crush me; that I may die unto the dust of which, I truly am

That I stand not within the ever present shadows of such, tainted beliefs....

Bound in the chains of lies; deceiving myself; this, darkeness of a blinding vanity

Lift my eyes and hold me there; "You," whom trieth the hearts and the reins of "Life" 

Within Your loving hands, direct my Souls path; aside these still Waters of such, Sanctity ~

Lead me that I may live beyond this place and time; tides; alluviums allusions cast away

Walking upon the shores to breathe, the fragrance of Paradise; tears, poured from Thy bottle

Turn my deepest purest thoughts that I may forever behold, Thy unsearchable Glories....

Strengthening my humbled heart that in death knowing, I shall find Radiance of Bright ~

Standing beyond the banks of lost perdition; soon to be forgotten amid, scorching winds

Burn, this amissful spirit of perception; understanding now found upon the coals; "Salvation"

Take my softened templed hand and, lead me unto the throne of, "Everlasting Celebration"

Until the ends of All in All; surrounded, by kings and queens and princess' and, princes

Your joyous and blessed Children of, "Loves," immaculate Creations ~

Crush me that I may be; for, "You Are, 'The Most High of Gods'"....

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

"My, 'Dear, Beautiful Father!!!'"

    You are blessed John..and whenever things don't go the way you wish, know that it's His will..no distractions..let nothing come between your love for Him because that love is all that matters as it covers everything. I am real proud to know you, my friend. I pray that He doesn't call you home anytime soon as you continue to inspire with your words and share His love and light! Love always, Audrey

    Amen! I am speechless and my eyes shine at your beautiful letter to your Beautiful Father, dear John. This is, of all your poems which I have read, this is my favorite. I am sure He was smiling as you wrote this spoken by your humble heart and soul. No wonder he fills you with light and love so much so that it overflows and you pass it on to others
