Faith In God Makes A Difference

                                            Commitments are hard
                                        Time is swift and life is short
                                              Misfortunes happen
                                      Faith in God makes a difference
                                         Times will pass much easier

God is born

A virgin has sired 
        forth God,the sheep praying Him,
Earth racing for Him.

Those not among the sheep
Will hurl a sharp spear at Him.

Hope, Faith and Love

DNA from God
Breathed into my soul at birth
Keeps hope, faith and love,
The essence of my being,
Enclosed in mortal body.

A Walk With You

A walk in the woods...
The sun shines through the tree leaves...
My time with You, Lord...
Under trees, orange and yellow...
With the fresh cool breeze of fall...

Praising God above
Shadows fall softly around
Whispering fond prayers
Miracles of hope, faith, love
Gifts from who created us

Pillars of Praise

I give You my praise,
rising from this heart's altar
pillars of incense
pure fragrance softly spreading
bringing joy to You, my God.

So real

God is not a man
Unlike man, is not greedy
Ever-mighty is this God
He recognize every tone
Unlike man, is ubiquitous

A wondrous delight—
Spiritual movement pure!
Rapture is that joy . . . 
	A magic force for poets . . . 
Arrival one in God’s arms!

God Painted A Sunset

I closed tight my eyes And in a trance I saw God He painted the sky Picking up a brush pure blue He swirled a slash of azure Hesitating long He dipped a brush rosy pink He held a brush gold Gazing and pondering long He painted an orb of gold July 23, 2012 Featured poem September 30, 2012

The Smile of God

Sunlight on my face
Radiance that covers me
His smile brings healing
More exquisite than the sun
Bestowed on his beloved

I don't deserve it
Darkness often allures me
I am not perfect
Simply because I am His...
He dazzles me with HIS smile

Eileen Manassian Ghali

Mattew 5: 44 - 46
44 But I tell you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, 45 that you may be children of your Father in heaven. He causes his sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous. 46 If you love those who love you, what reward will you get?

Sun explodes on morn
Spring burst alive from the ground
Moon glowing at night
New born child’s first voice alive
Everywhere God surges

Faith, Hope, and Love

Robed in white, I walk –
Towards love’s bidding; humbly,
I give you myself,
And take you as God’s great gift.
With Faith there's Hope in our Love.

in the beginning, first being and creator: the shape shifting Cagn. foolish or man of wisdom; either helpful or tiresome.
In the shadow of a crag, overlooking the tarn, Coti gave birth to Cagn’s first creation, the eland. While she bathed in the crystal clear water, Cagn whisked the eland away and hid it – to be fed by him on wild honey. This is where the two brothers, Cogaz and Gewi, found the object of their father’s love and devotion and killed it. Cagn was distraught and ordered Coti to mix the blood of the eland with the fat of its heart in a cauldron over a fire. Cagn sprinkled this potion on the barren desert soil and a herd of eland sprang from it; which became the symbol of fertility to his clan and all people that followed.
tracking the eland, young boy hunts with tribesmen - running it to ground. arrows dipped in poison; hunter's knife slits eland’s throat. alone in her hut at her first menstruation: the Eland Bull Dance – the women become the cow; men mimic the eland bull
Poetry form: tanka prose (not listed here on PS) ******************************************************************** Glossary: The San Religion consists of the spiritual world and the material world. The modern Bushmen of the Kalahari believe in two gods: one who lives in the east and one from the west. Like the southern Bushmen, they believe in spirits of the dead, but not as part of ancestor worship. The spirits are only vaguely identified and are thought to bring sickness and death. Cagn (also known as /Kaggen) is the supreme god of the Bushmen of southern Africa. He is the first being and the creator of the world. He is a trickster god who can shape shift, most often into the praying mantis. The bushmen believe that Cagn’s favourite animal is the eland, which is the most spiritual animal in the religion. The eland appears in some of the rituals: boys' first kill, girls' puberty, marriage, and the trance dance. • A boy is taught how to track an eland and how to kill it. The boy will be considered an adult once he kills a big antelope, mainly the eland. The eland then gets skinned, and a broth is made with the fat and the collar bone. • The ritual for the girls' puberty starts when they get their first menstruation in which she becomes isolated in her hut. The women in the tribe do what is called an Eland Bull Dance, by which they imitate the eland cows’ behaviour when mating; while the the men act as an eland bull. This ritual is to keep the girl beautiful and peaceful and also free from hunger and thirst. • In a marriage ritual, the man gives the fat of the elands' heart to the woman's parents. Then the woman is anointed with the fat. • In the trance dance, the shaman tries to possess eland potency because the eland is considered to be the most potent of all. The shaman: When an eland is killed, they believe that there is a link that opens up between the cosmos. When this happens, the shaman dances and reaches a trance to enter the spirit world. Once in a trance, they are able to heal people and protect them from sickness, protect people from evil spirits, control weather, see the future, ensure good hunting, and basically look out for the well being of their group or tribe.

Angelic She

Noised silence pulls me in a broken wilderness I drift amidst time circumnavigating what this dark abyss beckoning Suddenly, a light out of the black I appear into a blue day Angelic she, I've been found my dark abyss, now silenced .

Tanka too

If there are no bees
There will be no pollination 
Bees are plants sex toy
Dipterous are not up to the job
A bee is your survival 

We created god 
And gave him too much power
Mental tyranny 
Lucifer wanted power too
Was expelled and made hell

Gripping Roots, Coats Of Snow , THE God Phoenix Rises

 flower, god, rain, spring, winter, dance, birth, sunshine,

Birds chirp spring’s sunshine
Rain showers the ground outdoors
Plants begin to grow
Gripping roots draw nourishment
Mother Nature's weathered gifts!

Coats Of Snow © Tanka

Pure white coats stockpile
And cold shouts a freeze
Daylights sunshine glare
Early moonbeam blights a kissing
And dance the night time sky!


In Arabian ash 
Half a centuries' time
Beauteous ‘Phoenix’ ashes lay
For five hundred years 
Ageing in Arabian soil 
Will rise awake sentence-free!

in all the Sedona shops. . .

God mines raw diamonds 
In darkest nights of the soul; 
We retain wonder 
When questions go unanswered; 
Burnished trust gives birth to faith.

Your lips are of raspberry rose.
With skin of Amber, like GOLD.
I will, for eons bathe in your benign beauty,
Most excellently EXALTED.
You are the relic that restores me.

Fear of God

    Fear of God
The Crackling ice
Put the fear of God in you
When you see a
A crack under your feet
Run the length of the ice.
