Quietude endows hushed mystical space
Admonishing words have no role to play—
Look how in solitude its posture bends
Bowing in deference to calming intellect.

Listen to the utterance of wailing heart
Where grieved voices subtly resonate
In stygian echoes of aches and pain
As bawl of...Read More

Cognizant of humanity’s befallen verdict
Deliberately transgressing sovereign laws
Affirming carnal nature flaws…
Yet You, God Almighty, quickened my soul along divine edict.

Midst condemnation terrifying my heart
Frightened to face death’s agonizing seizure
With horrifying sting of grave-pressure… 
Still, You offered me redemption-grace, never will...Read More

Guiding with truth’s admonishing compassion.

Thus, I thank God for my conscience’s active presence
Righteous eavesdropping, indeed divinely-driven
Grieving for my wrong decision of pride’s license
Prodding me to...Read More

Scripture-truths SIR POPS preaches steadfastly
Indeed exhorting and admonishing intensely 
Rendering his best for the Lord readily…

Power of God, he trusts midst prayer-persistence 
Overcoming pressures by the Saviour’s omnipotence
Presenting Christ Who deserves praise-preeminence 
Satisfied is he in the Shepherd*’s bountiful prominence.

Where ... oh where
Are you??
Do I sink the darkness to find you ...
Clamber the divide?
If I plummet that black of oblivion
Will you be there ...
You HAVE to be somewhere

Anymore ... any
Weeping countless bouts

I remember
a young child in Sunday School
wondering what Jesus meant
when he said,
I have come out

into Earth's narrative
to turn Her repentance upside down.

How could this be true,
when he also taught that those who receive more
will get more,
and vice versa;
less worthy grace...Read More

“I love you, dearest daughter.”
Sweet melody of my mother’s care
Along her nurturing, comforting concern
Still reverberates in my heart… always inspiring.

“I love you, darling girl.”
Assuring lyric my Dad voices out
Harmonizing with his lingering presence
Echoes memories of family fidelity, devoid of dissonance.

Brain Stormed

Why does the heart get all the credit for love?
By so-called affairs of the heart, 
that most storied of organs is not unduly inconvenienced. 
It beats, 
now faster, now slower,
that is all, its task ever unvaried. 

But the brain.

Those who tell us to be NICE
they shout their PC gospel
in your face
while admonishing you for
your rebuttal
They accost each other
like third graders
left alone in the
school yard
when cornered
by a simple inquiry
point wildly
“He/She started it”
they cannot abide
the sound
of one hand clapping

Lonesome Dark
A visitor came to me last night,
a muscular digit, neutral, indeterminate,
abruptly thrust at me, pressing, admonishing,
coolly governing my face
with no great pain
and no great lingering gentleness.
Perhaps my head had been lifted,
it surely must have, though without my knowledge,
it must have...Read More

I stare at the paint I have smeared.
Knowing it is time to give up, I refuse.

Bony knuckles raking gloomy halls
Chambers echoing fate’s footfalls
Slumping shoulders and deathly grins
Recounting on fingers, countless sins
Shuddering, shivering in godless fears

Cowering in silence, holding my breath
Smelling foul odors of impending death

Pushing up his wretched arms,
Merging claims with ego,
Elating his soul in folly:
For pride goes before destruction.'

Contar Africa
Tis of a truth about Africa,
An idea seducing my ear at the eventide:

He's a dwarf
Bearing a gigantic burden,
Dazed by weariness,
Betrothed to heaviness.

Diverse folks standing beyond the margin,
Admonishing him:
You can get here,if not faster',
Strangle the motion,trials're better.

But could he move?
The burden...Read More
