Fall to Winter, Rise to Spring

                                      Fall to Winter, Rise to Spring


                                            Fallen, down and out
                                     Frozen, not dead nor decayed
                                           Rising, faith with wings!

Hold Fast My Heart

 He baptized my heart with Holy water,
   Rivers pure and clean.
He has set my feet upon the rock,
 With a measure of faith in things unseen.

Like the hands of moses lifted high,
 I will call upon him, he will hear my cry.
If I should stumble, he will break the fall,
 his arms are stretched to reach us all.

I love you Jesus from my heart,
 because you loved me first.
You meet my every need,
 and quench my every thirst!

Hold fast my heart to the one
 who gave his life for me,
Rejoice because he has loosed the chains,
 and set this captive free!

Haikus About God: III

Beauty of nature
Why condense it down to God?
Isn’t life enough?


Details | Haiku | |

The Maranatha

Being only man,
Waiting till I die is hard
More than it is long

I walk razor sharp
On the edge of true belief
Bruised with impatience

In a double world
Of sinister partitions
And a squalid mask

Judas has come back
Again in each lukewarm saint
His coming pushed back

I keep but one faith
One longing decrees my will
For the jasper gate

But look, the false throng
Their ancient pretense cuddling
In tensed rituals

So I sag with it
My bleeding feet on the edge
Of the flaming sword

Welcome, just me in
Let me see the primal tree
Shield me from their sin

When will humanity have
Loving truthful days

What People Were and What People Are

People were
Many things.
Strange or not

People were
Different and
Odd and fun.

People were
Monsters but…
That’s not all

People were
And still are
Strange and odd.

People are
People. For
life is life. 

Yet not.
Not is lies.
Truth seeps from

Every mouth
Lies, lies, lies
Move, move, move

But somehow
Lies prevail.
Lies are life.

Lies are death.
Lies are homes.
Lies are pain.

Lies are truth.
Yet somehow.
Truth prevails.

Truth is life.
Truth is death.
Truth is home.

Truth is pain.
Truth is lie.
Truth is that.

Lies will die.
Lies will cease.
Nevermore.

Truth will live.
Truth will be.
Forever.

Sparkling gem so bright

Picked up a shovel
Whilst started to melt soil
Held it on my hand

Vibrant hue persist and glow
Turned to diamond.

The Last Seven Plagues

those who bore 'the mark'
screamed from painful ugly sores
First of the Last Plagues

the sea turned to blood
and everything in it died
Second of Last Plagues

the rivers and springs
became blood--no more water
Third of the Last Plagues

the sun had power
burning people with fire
Fourth of the Last Plagues

kingdom of 'the beast'
was plunged into vast darkness
Fifth of the Last Plagues

       STILL--people cursed God
       and they refused to--REPENT
       global armies formed

the great Euphrates'
water dried up--transit road
Sixth of the Last Plagues

       world economic
       devastation, suicides
       lootings and killings

       stench of dead bodies
       cities on fire--engulfed
       chaos, fear, riots

the sun became darkened
the moon gave no light--all dark
stars fell from the sky

huge exploding holes
in the darkness as they fell
hundreds all at once

       army of 'the beast'
       horizon to horizon
       Plain of Megiddo

clouds blanket the sky
painful peals of thunder roll
gold weaves through the clouds

hundred pound hailstones
fell on unrepentant man
cars, homes, land destroyed

most severe earthquake
islands diappeared--Earth FLAT
splits Jerusalem

then voice from Heaven
"It is done"--is heard by all
Last of the Last Plagues

       wait at Magiddo
       the Son of Man--Returns
       on white horse, in clouds

       blood runs two hundred
       feet wide/long and five feet deep
       bodies explode at

       the sound of The Word
       spoken from the King of Kings
       one-sided battle

anti-christ and false
prophet thrown in lake of fire
beast chained--thrown in pit...

thousand years in pit
(Jesus rules Kingdom on Earth)
then, loosed for a time

there is still HOPE
Know Jesus loves you and died
for your sins--REPENT...

New Year 2013 may welcome Peace

New Year 2013 may welcome Peace

May the New Year welcome the peace and
Feed good thoughts in our minds
May it sow noble seeds in our land
To change this hell at least as Earth

Bloody violence may go out of this land and
Nasty hunger may go for it’s death
Stupid poverty may reach it’s corner
Lovely world may incarnate from this hell

May my dreams come to true on this dawn
May His mercy shower on our lives
May my pen write prosperity in epics
I want these My Lord bless me to attain

Lazy dogs may go to their pits
Greedy worms may go to their end
Corruptive gems may go to deep
Holy souls may bless to us

Bridge (Familiarity Unknown)

Michelangelo
Stretched God’s hand to Adam’s;
A bridge to heaven.







* For Gareth James' Familiarity Unknown contest and intended to honor of both the image 
and the thoughts it inspired.  The natural bridge and its expansion across that magnificent 
sky reminded me of the now iconic image that Michelangelo painted on the ceiling of the 
Sistine Chapel.  I've been chasing Michelangelo lately, so it doesn't surprise me that I'd see

Abraham

“Then the Angel of the LORD called to Abraham a second time out of heaven, and said: “By Myself I have sworn, says the LORD, because you have done this thing, and have not withheld your son, your only son—blessing I will bless you, and multiplying I will multiply your descendants as the stars of the heaven and as the sand which is on the seashore; and your descendants shall possess the gate of their enemies. In your seed all the nations of the earth shall be blessed, because you have obeyed My voice.”’

Softly speaks at night Dreams of all tucked in very snug, Faith wrapped, loved always Imbues freedom with Ringing tones of peaceful notes Cuts the grey dense air Covers soldiers of Light, the wings enveloping, All hatred now gone Kissing devils and Hugging angels in hiding Curing ills of mind Minding the absence; Without which we perish, then, The answer is love _____________________ Please find God's love, it is all around us and my friends... it is the answer.

THE SCARLET NEW YEAR

I found the New Year weak
Laden cumberland and amber
Weeping snow from the spicy sweet shrubs
Beg as if it is a teen to absent spring 
To emerge somewhere with its perfect 
Beauty delight;

But when I sought to it for you,
Ah the New Year grows in front of my eyes 
Like those plum-blossoms from the old garden!

Beauty for ashes

Her House was ablaze,
Smoke filled each room she
Was barely alive,

Congested and faint,
A withered rose suffocates,
She fell to her knees,

Voice heard loud and clear,
Severed through the pollution,
Arise, your set free!

For Him

Confusion, delusion, rejection,
Seeking gladness, finding sadness.

Cold house, cold heart,
Feelings of drifting apart.

Always trying hard to please,
Never getting any reprise.

Is it worth it, I ask myself,
Failing in the pursuit of wealth.

Sick of life, sick of living,
Tired of trying, tired of giving.

Thoughts of love fading fast,
Thoughts of hope long since passed.

Why do I fight this losing battle,
Being ignored starting to rattle.

People say hi, then move away,
Never waiting to hear what you say.

Why do I continue with this strife,
What's the point of living this life.

Each day passes in the same mode,
Making my life such a lonely road.

Not talking, just walking,
Like i'm doing the right thing.

Not hoping now of a future bright,
Living life in this fading light.

God knows my heart  better than man
He knows i'm doing the best that I can.

I suppose now that my life grows dim,
I'm trying best and it's just for Him.


I am a very happy guy who talks to folk who aren't

Lost Hearts

Lost Hearts


We grew to love each other.
But you swayed away.
You turned an eye.
You started to break.
Now where are we?
Are you falling down.
Shall I end it here of this cliff?
That the end of you but you will always forget me
Never say whats isn't true I still love you.
You will jump before saying that again.
I love you even as I fall off this cliff.
As my lover fell to their death I could only see the tears as I wanted to be with them forever and ever,But who is to say that they died that day who is to say they did not live on.We were together but our hearts become lost until this moment love had only been a game now it was the place were we have died.Together we are lost together are hearts are bonded forever even if we are apart,love know no bounds.

Lone Feather

A circular path
Among the wood tells a tale
Of a lone feather

As plain as the day,
But new as another morn.
You were visited...

As the eyes of God
Flew about in search of you
To show Himself strong,

They lit in the road.
Transformed into day angels,
They fluttered away.

A feather was found
By a friend to let you know
His Spirit was there.

I Do Love You

I do love you,
I cannot describe it,
The love my heart and soul, and my whole being feels for you my love.

I do love you, 
I dream and daydream, of that day where you say I do,
Because that means you love me too.

I do love you,
You make me laugh when I am sad, and you pick me up when I am down, and you are the light of my bad day.

I do,
I do are just simple words, but they mean a lot to me,
You see, they are not just three letters, they aren't just two words,
These two words go a long way.

I do love,
You taught me how to contain myself, and not lose myself, and not get mad too easily, if I do, I can quickly recover from it.

So I want to say thank you my baby Dustin James Palmer, for being there for me and saying,
I do love you.

My Life

My life is so perfect and true 
With you my love,
Noone else treats me the way you do.

My step-father treats me wrong, and blames everything on me,
Which makes me explode or say some things to people that I don't mean,
My mother is awesome, and she is my best friend, the only other one I can trust, except you.

I have never really loved anyone before you, except my friends, but never as much as you, my love. 

I can't imagine living in a world where you don't exsist,
If I had to I would'nt do it, I would die,
I just can't be without you more than 24 hours, I am glad we are in the same school, that way when I am grounded I can still see you, 
I dream and daydream about you every day and every night, 
I want you to cloud up my mind, so I can think of nothing else.
My life is simple, perfect, and true.

There are some people that I wished I could say sorry to for my behavior towards them, but I don't think they would listen,
It eats my stomach up, and I feel bad for my behavior towards them, but I know I can't go into the past and erase it, guess I just have to live though it,
It just puts more scars in my heart, because no matter what we are all family in God's eyes.

I can not hate, Dislike, or even Strongly dislike anyone, even though they don't like me or may hate me, I think of them as family. So I will say sorry to someone I go to school with, she deserves it. I have 3 periods with her, so I will say sorry someday when I get the guts.

My life is so perfect, clear and safe to me

Haiku Collection Number 1

Hot tropical night
tension, sweat drips, bodies move
it’s time to tango.

Trimmed in red, white, green
ornaments sparkle and shine
Christmas time is here.

Golden Buddha sits
wisdom comes from emptiness
Shakyamuni, be.

White flakes falling down
glitters like stars in the sky
go up, ski down, weeee!

Swish, swish, swish, left, right
swish, swish, swish, down from up high
hot cocoa awaits.

Sun sets, pale red sky
mountains darken, purple sight
love Colorado.

Eight tracks and cassettes
memoires of the eighties
tunes blares as we cruise!

Honking all the time
everyone waiting in line
wild geese eating.

Black bird walks funny
searching for a bite to eat
that finch got it first.

Strange and bizarre dance
colors moving back and forth
parking lot ballet.

We bid you welcome
to our home of happiness
come and share it’s wealth.

Friends arrive this night
smiles and laughter for all
would you like some tea?

Sadness, time to leave
wisdom and cheer must be spread
to those that have need.

Cloud covered moon glows
eerie light darkens, pitch black
the wolves howl no more

Ascension by Fire

The silent news spoke
Nothing of my grief, the fire
Came after the smoke

Children, grandchildren
Were'nt lollipops of the flames
Choking on prayers

The serpent's eyes red
Looked, and from our fortress fled
Staining just one room

With the ash of sin
Investment here of its doom
Without rain or tears

Throw the old things out
 Burnt furniture, wet clothes scarred
With water and dirt

Human life is more
Than grief can measure in loss
This, yet we endure

Carol, dear, and John
Give Candice my love's regard
We shall build again

The phoenix in us
Resist the yearning in dust
To fracture our trust

We rise, and we rise
The spark above leaping fire
Death is love disguised,

The balm of the skies
We believe and do not need
The germ in the seed.

Let old visions die
Frail vanity now disposed
Fresh faith from it grows

For in this despair
Our safety meant God is here
Life is only grace.

our tabby opens one eye
distant   “Oh  ho  ho!”

this one special night
the hen house door stands open
wily fox retreats

some little green men
from God knows where    see the light
       bow in silent prayer

meanest man on Earth
on his camel    hears the babe
vows eternal love

he trusted the Star
when the shepherd left his flock
wolves    by Star    transfixed

Crying Out - 1

Weighty sins grab me;
Crippling me from what I seek:
Close proximity.

On my own I fail,
without any scrap of worth.
I'm self defeating.

I scream out to you
with rage that strips my voice bare,
hoping that you hear.

There is no reply,
as if you abandoned me
to rot in my state.

Be swift to save me.
Be ready to lift me up.
Be quick to forgive.

I still feel the pain,
and hot anger tow-ard you,
though you are my health.

Replace my raw filth
that devastates every word,
keeping me from you.

Please don't hesitate
by delaying my rescue
because of my pride.

Your grace is life's breath.
Without it I suffocate
with it I'm sustained

Please answer my prayers
and forgive me of my sins.
Have me feel your love.

Why make it this hard?

Just let me help you!
Would it really be that hard?
I want to get it.

I want to help you,
Through everything you need.
I don’t want to push.

You make this too hard,
Let me try to comfort you,
But you can’t just talk.

I think I get it,
But how can I be sure, huh?
Just trust me, you’ll see.

We may not be us,
But it’s hard not to miss you,
The real you, that’s right.

Don’t know you that well,
But I do know you’re not this,
You are not this guy.

You’re awesome and sweet.

I call out to you
as I would ask my own dad,
but you don't respond.

You said of fathers:
"They don't spurn, but give good gifts."
but I feel left out.

There must be a fault.
Though, it lies with me, not you.
You, God, do not fail.

I don't understand
Help me to hear in silence
to see through shadows.

When I am in pain
have the spa-sms not distract
and heal me within.

Your love is steadfast
despite my failure to feel.
Please, Jesus, bless me.

Note:
(There may be several ways to interpret "Stripped Bare"- one way that comes to mind is this:  Even if you 
lose everything in this world your faith, your foundation can sustain you. During the past summer there were many 
families who had lost everything and were living in tents because community shelters were filled.  They 
trusted in God to provide for their basic needs and they survived!)

 עזוב כמה לתלות לכן התהליך

 הבררני חוסך תאוריות בר קימא.

MOON-SUN

Oval and too white; 
light adorns forests on hills...

Not brighter than stars;
your shining halo gives life...
less darkness, more light.


Moon, give me glitter;   
sun, brighten my uncertain days...
together as one.

God is unhappy

God is a Single
But God can’t create His spouse
That’s why there is hell!

God is the Most Kind
But God is not kind to all
God is the Big Mind!

God is the Most Wise
But God doesn’t know how to
Become all-time nice!

God is the So-So
But God is the best person
God is Mass and Glow!

God is unhappy
But God is so kind and good
He makes us happy!

We can make God smile
But we can't make God happy
God has His own style!

Bio Of His Beauty

It takes my breath away to see such spectacular views
of this world, knowing that even they cannot be
compared to GODS beauty.
It is beyond mans fathomable ability. How can one
fathom what he does not know? or what he does not 
understand? We see His beauty in His people, in His 
church, in His mercy which He bestows; in his love 
which He gives.
We see His beauty in his faith, in His devotion,
in His promise too. GODS beauty surpasses and soars
high above all creation and reaches very low into
a heart so very dark and drear;
far below where we sink into sin. his beauty in His mercy,
His beauty in faith; His beauty in CHRIST; Himself...

Song of Awakening

Atheism wakes
The world floods all his senses
Drenched gray newspaper

Earth closes its doors
Positivist hypercube
He calls it no God

Belief awakens
The world floods all his senses
Drenched gray newspaper

Earth closes its doors
Positivist hypercube
He sees light through cloud

And hope in the blood
Temptation a winding brook
In which we all bathe

Mosquito must prey
Or die, and die anyway
No simple answers

But how much wiser
Must we be than mosquito!
We can opt for faith!

Blood-red newspapers
A dove’s song stirs baby hymns
I choose to believe
