Faith, Hope, Love

Lord, I seek from You
Faith, that I may conquer death
Hope, to persevere 
Love, that I may love the lost
And love You as You love me

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...

Tanka 4

rough gray stones uncut
heaped upon a rugged hill
anchors for crosses 
precious those stones became the
day Christ's blood dripped slowly down

Our Savior Is Born

                                                     Star of Bethlehem
                                             Beacon to our new born King
                                              Shepherd, wise man heard 
                                             Angels adore him, men bow 
                                                   Our Savior, Alleluia!

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

Wisdom

Wisdom

God’s wisdom ablaze 
shining amidst the darkness
of sin and meanness
alleviate and gives comfort
to the lonesome and downcast

One Lonely Tree

It weathered harsh storms

and grew to be very strong

but the day soon came

when life was taken from it    

so that Another would die

second coming



                                             You put your hand on
                                           My navel I felt pleasure
                                               Of second coming
                                         As a jasmine smells at night
                                       To claim his earth his kingdom

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, COVENANT

spirit’s star blazes
angels slough caste to chorus
tongues of shepherds freeze
pride-twisted scripture withers
born clean is the King of Souls

Life is a puzzle

This is  my reward 
When reached my eternal home
He brings me flowers
unveil His sovereign  love
Perfect the puzzle of life!

Nothingness

of nothingness came 
a being greater than I
why knoweth not I 
he was born to live then die 
freedom's gift to you and I

Christmas Tankas

Christmas comes again.
Wonder fills my soul anew.
Babe in a manger,
Mystery of godliness;
God in fragile form.


Yearly I recall
the fullness of time has come.
Made under the law,
a virgin chosen, carries
the God who will save her soul.


A virgin gives birth 
In a plain, simple stable.
There is no fanfare,
Yet amidst this humble place
The King of all kings is born.


Did she really know
That this fragile babe, so small
Dependent on her
For the most basic of needs
Was also her Lord Supreme?
