My friend, we come from different families
With one Father –
Families whose rhythm,
And whose music,
Differs as widely
As the way
We open Christmas presents
Dye our Easter eggs.

My friend, I love you
Magnetically drawn into
That love by a singular
Raised upon a blood stained hill

Tears of Gethsemane
Tears in the Garden of Gethsemane were in a downpour
They ran deep in the cracks of pain of a divine soul
There was an endurance of a struggle to repress the world’s evils
An anguish that could not edify Jesus' slumbering disciples

A million ways to say I love you
They say
?There are a million ways?
To say I love you

In this day and age?
I could only find
?In my computer’s brain?
The words 
to say I love you?
In 53 languages 
of the 10,000 languages
?Spoken on this planet

Someday I may be able

In the Valley
In the valley where
Life is lived as intended
Happiness is widespread
As far as any eye can see.
Joy and love reign
As peace and blessings
Fall from above.
Minor disagreements though
Few and far between,
Met with acceptance and
Understanding are 
Respectfully resolved with
Knowledge and equality
For the good...Read More

Seen from the bruised sheets
the two open mouths of her shoes
(one face down and drunk
the other lopsidedly agape)
speak to him in groans and murmurs.

Her face smudges the glass
in the bathroom mirror;
she is squeezed into a jar of light.

Headlights strafe the...Read More

The opera isn't over until the fat lady sings,
the demotic aphorism goes

Before the curtain goes up at the opera house, 
someone least expected comes out to close the show

She was no fat lady. Rather, a young soprano.

Beyond romance 
of one-flesh* ecstasy…
above sweet expectations
during marriage-vow recital…
may God’s love lift you up together
bound by His passionate affection, divine
toward blessed, blissful, beautified union… verily triumphant!

Against turmoil
after wedding date…
from struggles awaiting
midst honeymoon’s delight…
may the Lord’s care keep you more

Your heart is the frail vessel 
containing the power of the winds.
It carries you, wholesomely, 
in tiny pieces of crystal
through the liquid night.

Let your spirit be still,
amid the throbs of pain
sculpting deeper chambers in your heart.

God's Love runs deep.

When horizons are lost and dim,
Standing in solace with a hymn;
My eyes sunken within a hole,
Eternal love, embrace my soul.

Of tired tears where the pain remains,
Looking for you to break the chains;
Resurrecting my body whole,
Eternal love, embrace my soul.

Ashen was the sky 
That rejected hand of sunrise
Sullen was the heart
That stumbled in affection,

Incapable of lauding
Ruby blush of budding rose
And pink passions on horizon
Defying darkened woes.

In midst of a vibrant spring
Her garden blooms curled up
Amid hostile dry weather,

Teared-up, she...Read More

Agape love is the highest form of all expressions of love. It is the

Though justification may be in faith, 
And hope sustain us through all trouble,
Greater still than either is agape, 
The love that comes from God, 
The concern for our fellow creatures
Which acknowledges our oneness.
