                                         His child, forever

by digital light
they hovered and poured pure hate
down over my bed

hung the advisors
selling sammy’s letter to 
a christian nation

of gods and portals
opened when I closed the book
and peeked into worlds

a hair’s width away
from my face they pressed hard for
another mistake

doubt stabbed my recall
of passages and preachers
in this kind of fight

would they not give chase
fear stumbles a femur snaps
to put me back down

reduced my weapons
to decorative clutter
in that old farmhouse

The Holy Ghost spoke
told me not to engage them
extended his hands

slowly closed my eyes
blurred vision of Christ who stood
by his Father’s throne

and before any
of minute’s measures of time
three demons were gone

My Spiritual Mom

Mom’s Bible stories 
my first words inspired to be. . . . 
that Jesus loves me

her best-loved motto -
what’s next to godliness. . . . 
eight kids cleaning up

feasting on Scriptures
strong in mind, body and soul. . . . 
Mom might outlive us

10 Holy Haiku and Senryu Poems

Routing Evil:
Over plains ink prints
Tales of God routing evil.
Jesus finds and saves. 

Passion Sunday:
The passion of Christ.
Jesus was hanged on a cross.
Truly this was God.

Blind Man:
A blind man washes
Clay in the pool of Siloam.
Now he see's the light.

Thirsty Israelites:
Thirst in the desert.
Moses taps water from rock.
They now drink refreshed.

The Transfiguration:
Peter, James and John
Are taken up a mountain.
Jesus does transform.

The Light of Jesus:
We bless our candles.
Light has come into the world,
His name is Jesus.

Be Perfect:
Be holy for God.
Have love for your enemies
As the perfect Christ.

Free in Christ:
Jesus came to free
Us from the power of sin,
Death and selfishness.

The Salt of the Earth:
Having mercy and
Pursued for God’s righteousness. 
You are now earth's salt.

The Walls of Jericho:
Walking by the walls.
On the seventh day it fell
With trumpets and shouts.

The Vital Holy Day

Getting ready for
Passover to shed us might
For joyous future

The significance 
Of God’s holiday is way
More vital than us

10 Haiku and Senryu Poems Vol 3

The Holy Spirit 
Shows forgiveness to us now.
Communion with God.

Fear in our bodies.
Fear in our minds and our hearts.
Jesus breaks through it.

Proclaim God's mercy.
He breathes the Holy Spirit.
Receive the spirit.

As the risen Lord,
He brings us peace as first fruits.
Suddenly He's here.

A mad buffalo,
I see it in the pages
Peppered with arrows.

A buffalo hunt.
A rain dance does start the clouds.
It bleeds and it pours.

A playwright does write.
Lightning destroys the music.
New songs are written.

Thunder does collide.
It starts to rain down chaos.
Lightning does now strike.

Rays of evil seen.
Darkness points to me and blooms.
I repent and win.

He escapes me now.
Lucifer hides and does run.
God will slay our foe.
