Bleeding FOR Life

The ground was so soaked
Where His blood ran down the cross.
Dead but giving life!

The tree He was on,
God let grow for His Own Son
To die on, yet live!

The tomb on the hill
was just borrowed for week end.
Stone was rolled away.

On that third morning
A bright light glowed from within.
Jesus had risen.

Women came to see.
Death where is thy victory?
Grave where is thy sting?

Measures of Faith

Freedom in infinite latitude of grace
Answering questions life cannot face
Inspiring a victor's heart in salvation's race
Templed in the love of Christ, the joy to taste
Heaven as bread, and earn it as place.
                     ii
Measure to me all
The landscape of broken will
Indwell finite space

To endure the night
In raptures claiming presence
Of eternal day

Passing through darkness
With soul untainted, flawed light
Imaging glory

I hold with hands firm
Beyond the brim of eyes span
The great coming, here!

I behold in grime
Figures of hate, bruised and bare
Loving enemies

Earth is illusion
The kingdom is veiled by love
Absent from the heart

O Master, bless me
When night has no moon or stars
To walk in this light

To soar above fear
Treat a pauper like a prince
And sing to the cross

What I see transforms
Daylight is a prayer new
Night a song of praise

It is a gift rare
For opened hearts, and bowed wills
And love of the king.

In pain there is joy
If love's purpose tells sweet gain
So still I remain.

The Rehabilitation of Killers ( Two Senryu Trilogies)

Out of water
Moses killed a task master
And hid the body.

In the wilderness
Forty years and reconciled
Called by Burning Bush

Out of the desert
Moses, the deliverer,
Set God's people free.

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

A true Pharisee
Of Pharisees, Paul stood by
Consenting killings.

Killing more Christians
Blinded, thrown off his high horse
Sent to a Christian

The scales fell away.
Paul became a man of God...
Trusted apostle.

Of separation

Not with wrenched phrases
The agony foolish, waits
Suddenly the still

Of will and motion
The surrender of feelings
To naked frailty

The wise longing pause
In vulnerability
Then through death to live

I am the prayer
That I bring unexpectant
Of all, but to wait.

Many Strong Have Fallen

Delilah's pleasures
Her head lain in Samson's lap
Blind, he grinds around

Rivers and blood David stole
Hid to no prophet

Stronger have fallen
Your resistance is futile
If you compromise

Better Than Ten Sons

Hannah was favored,
But Peninnah was fertile-
Both, wives of one man.

Peninnah provoked
Hannah til she cried to God
For an open womb.

Elkanah trembled
With Hannah, the wife he loved
After they worshiped.

God was exalted.
Peninnah's voice was silenced
By Hannah's promise.

Holy Grimace

In such agreement
With all that is being said
Standing up in awe

Rocking side to side
With folded arms, shriveled nose
Squinted eyes, spiked shouts

Downward lips poked out
With wrinkled brow and clinched fists
Arms start rotating

Rolling, beating air
Shifting foot to foot ready
To launch in the deep

The speaker speaks on
Overexaggerated
With vi'lent fervor

Still with that grimace
Clapping hands, shaking the head
Nodding with more shouts

Now out the fifth row
A trot turns into a sprint
Til breathless with tears

Arms raised, surrender
Jumping sporadically
In freedom of soul

Fire Boys

Three did not bow down
To the king's idol... music...
Doomed to the furnace.

Seven times hotter,
The flames leaped out opened doors
Consuming king's men

And burning the ropes
Of the three thrown in the fire
Freeing them to dance

Round the Son of God;
They came out alive, unsinged
With no smell of smoke.


Dedicated to Caleb for his make-believe hero, Fire Boy.

Rich and Righteous

Abraham, father
Of many sons, God-made rich
With faith, fields and funds

Solomon's wisdom
God's extravagance given
For childlike request

Job, the richest man
Lost it all, prayed for his friends
God doubled his wealth


No contradiction of terms
