Premium Member Atmospheric inferno
Boisterous clouds are churning, roiling air-mass in warm updraft
Declaring on callous inhabitants of earth, a dark ferocious war 
Manifesting malevolent force, imposing anger on spatial norms,
Conspiring with anguished winds to invigorate violent storms.

Colossal is their expanse that threatens the rise...Read More

Spring 2020

No-one’s told the sun not to shine
no-one’s told the birds not to sing,
sounding their joy at cloudless skies
with the welcome advent of Spring!

No-one’s told buds not to open,
no-one’s said flowers cannot bloom,
bare branches covered with colour,
filling the air with...Read More

Springs Awakenings.
The mottled nibble butterfly
Stretches it’s paper like delicate wings
As the sun casts it’s warm pleasant light
The dainty robin heralds a new day born
And joyfully sings
As another day unfolds
Within the awakening mantel of spring
And a teasing gentle warming breeze
Caresses and...Read More

Country Church Nestled in the Wilderness

A country church nestled in a peaceful valley,
Against a glorious backdrop of tall mountains,
That were fashioned before Eden’s retched  malady,
That beset the human soul and rich surroundings.

Beautiful dog-wood trees with blossoms snowy white,
Bounded by rocks as old as the...Read More

I Am That I Am…Without End…

Listen, my heart is a soul drum
Beating the spiritual rhythms 
Of the sojourning struggle of life—
Pumping pulsating blood inking
The notes of our story—flowing 
From the past to the present—banked
In the here and now—waiting to cascade

The dew lays thick on the October Morning, 
The last for the advent of frost.
With my blanket I sit on the front porch swing,
And wait for the paper to come.

The day after Christmas letdown when just a little boy
Upon reflecting with misty eyes

excitement mantle I wore

I'm still reading Your Resonant Self,
by Dr. Sarah Peyton,
speaking of how contempt
destroys relationships
formerly cooperative
and, thereby, healthy.

Disgust about oneself
and contempt against Other
are interrelated,
like ego and eco,
like Yang and Yin,

"Humans seem to be capable of disconnecting from others
[and our disgusting selves]

25, the number man created
And bestowed upon the young lord
As his day of birth

An advent into chaos he made
His birth, a day of pain
For all who knew the truth

Yet, ignorant man rejoiced
That the babe was born into strife

Visual resilience

Objective resolution

Unchanging affluent paradigms

The Republican congressmen,
and I do mean white privileged straight men,
came to their Democratic opposition
concerned about how depressing
December can be,
and all of winter,
come to think and feel
of dark discerning Advent,

So maybe we could stage
a comedic debate
about Trumpism,

And, in this economic class

There's something to be said
for doing the right thing,
even for the wrong reasons.

Reasons are about becoming, a work in progress,
as doing is about living, a lifetime process,

In the past conversation,
Before the advent of man,
Between the God and the Angels,
Man of the different color
And the same color,
Will butcher themselves.

When tempered beyond natural state,
The finest blade lose it edge.

Foxed the peacock's feather
To it form.

Christmas reaches for my very soul
With long and red and green desiring arms,
It cries, in the silent night of my savior’s love,
Before His last gift of fulfilled Psalms.

And I treasure its...Read More

Advent song
Fresh flakes come pirouetting down
To softly lie below
And cloak the peaceful churchyard in
A crystal bed of snow.

Young choristers in unison
Raise voices to proclaim
The dawning of redeeming grace
And glory of His name.

And once again this Christmas time
The Saviour’s love imparts

Born in a barn manger of straw,
