In troubled times, look up to the sky.
Remember my son, redemption draws nigh.

For God will send rain, to come about.

darkness ...
it is closing its careless bite
upon ALL of us
it knows no favor, no age, no disposition

and swirl the murky waters at our feet
it casts an arrogant shade that we have...Read More

Premium Member Lamentation For The Downtrodden
Weather beaten; once smooth...

as a pebble, now a jagged rock.
He's been tried and tested 
by life's adversities; each day
is a struggle for survival.

He's been struck down 
by lightning's forked tongue.

He's muddled through the asperities 
of unforgiving winters 
He's gotten wet...Read More

ASCENT OF FAITH-ALTITUDE
Almighty God, the supreme Father above
assures me, through Scriptures’ precepts, His divine affection
affirming His marvelous vibrant love’s abundance
always at work to grant pardon absolutely

Premium Member one stone is a fortress

A stone is sitting in solitude underwater while others play
Solitude is gainful,   a finding of one’s inner qualities
Those qualities surface that may have been unclaimed
It is then that the integral source of contentment will exceed

Premium Member Poems come to life when tired tongues are silent
Slave to wayward thoughts,
unwritten poems return to haunt.
Tempest of tragedy arrives as a harbinger,
wrecking fences that divide sleeping paths. 

There is no one to show the way.
Father's sins betray,
mother's tongue destroys. 
Punishing a misled mind,
to ponder unwanted silence.

Time is no...Read More

higgledy-piggledy
rampantly running ragged
ruminative raconteur

fetus in fetu maintaining stranglehold
choking ability to breathe
unsuccessful roundup eradication
resultant mailer daemons

I need God’s grace to the fullest;
