NO FATHER'S DAY

he died in the war
no Daddy and no present
the child.. never born

*I grieve for the children, their joy and smiles, who will never be..
Because their future Daddy died in the war!

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?

Ice King

 Ice that will freeze the heart
shaking icy mountains
roaring like a lion does
thunder echoes around
with ice in hands body turns to stiff
heart faints weaker
Tears fall of cold imprinted on face
beneath his mask lips of lavender 
face as white as a ghost
Fatigue of a warrior 
ice blades that cut razor sharp
heart turned to blue
from harsh torture of his endless soul
among the most powerful 
the king of winters
with ice of bone he conquers all

       I see Her image
She wipes the tears from my eyes

Singing in my ears

For the eons of ALWAYS
Dissapating Tears

Dissapating Tears
I had cried throughout my youth
Dried Forevermore

Dried Forevermore
The oceans of my sorrow
My future begins

My future begins
Through the Pearly Gate,I walk
  I see Her Image

DEAD -- A Senryu Series

Shall I stand alone
In the silhouette of death
The furnace of hell

The unbeliever!
Wash my soul, with hell's fire
Live among : damned

If I had been True
To Christ, my Higher Power
I could live in “Light”

Lenore beside me
For eons of Forever
I am lost : Alone

Evil owns my Soul
Darkness, my Forever life
Ignited in Death

A word of advise :
Live your life with-in “HIS” Love
Know Eternal “ LIFE “

Pulled the Trigger

Bullet wounds
The criminal shoots down his
First targets

How dare you
Shoot them uncontrollably
CHAOS grows .  .  .

Don’t shoot it!
The victims are running mad
And you pulled

The trigger
I’m terrified of your strength
DROP IT, man ! ! !

Eternal Cycle

Midnight has fallen,
Fated to be overrun
By bright, sunlit skies.

But Dawn also breaks;
And Daylight is forced to fade,
So Night might rise.

Unbroken for centuries,
Until the sun dies.

Zen and the Art of Cannibalism (or, Serial Killer Senryu)

Unseen hungry ghost
Predator in human skin
Lurks among the herd

Some folks drool for lamb
Others beef, but I prefer
The *other* red meat

Arcing silver edge
Slices a dark horizon
Full moon or my knife?

God's hand carves the earth
Canyon river running red
Metaphor in flesh.

Blood on my good shirt:
I just had this damn thing cleaned!
People are so rude.

Sleek steel crimson-graced
Open window into you
Pericardium!

Fresh-plucked beating heart
Just like a ripe tomato
Crush it in my jaws

Warming up the grill:
Home-made chuck on seeded buns.
Long pork for dinner!

Gleaming white arches
Spin around the spinal cord
Horseshoe, played with bones.

VET'S SUICIDES

The latest survey
eighty suicides per day
by our Veterans

Such a big disgrace
CBS investigates
this whole cover up

These folks fought for us
no one's taking care of them
they would rather die

Someone should be held
accountable for each one
who takes his own life

If they had something
that they could look forward to
they won't want to die

There's hope in Jesus
message needs to go across
that bad times don't last

Moses killed a task master
And hid the body.

In the wilderness
Forty years and reconciled
Called by Burning Bush

Out of the desert

Set God's people free.

Of Pharisees, Paul stood by
Consenting killings.

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

The scales fell away.

Thieves and Paradise

Already dying
One cursed Christ.  Ready to die
One was blessed with life.

      Xbox Live again
every day the same old game
     should be Xbox dead

Widow

    held in my heart's hollow
dreams of yesterday with you
     only I  recall  .

Gamblers' Requiem

  won it all and lost
gave away the best at cost
  boxed the rest in pine

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.

  now for you I live
yesterday I lived for me
 death draws out true love

The fear comes to life.
The spot fades and it’s half past.
Regain self control.

Memories can kill
I shall cut out those that would
Forgot how to breathe

The world forbidden 
Fleeting, forgotten, forlorn 
Foreseen to be sweet

All we know is truth
Peeking into the abyss
The darkness slumbers

Forgot the feeling

Shall I go outside and play

Give me peace again

Nothing can help us
Seek that which waits in the dark
Alone and waiting
