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

Religious Impression

Imprint of a skull Remains firmly in my mind Truth scattered around Reality of the end… I must find solace somewhere

This place where I go,
When all seems lost around me.
Life seems to drown me.
He will always fill my cup
Take my cross and lift me up.

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

The religious leaders

We can’t depend on
The religious leaders
They don’t know the Truth
But they preach for their living
They are now commercial

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

Giving Up to a Higher Power

You win.  I withdraw.
I acknowledge your terms.
Embrace my weak flesh.
Love me that I may admit
Defeat.  Make your will be done.

(Acrostic Tanka)
for the contest Resignation.

Passion for what still exists
Phonon of ones fists
Durance of eclectic hours
Fire on the hell gone towers
Phenomenon is.
Formality for passion
Lacks it's existence 
For it's agnostic purpose
Keeps as moving in a sense-
keeps as running fast.

For contest.
In form of Tanka. Written about 
New Age Aquarius.
