Propitiation The Heart of The Gospel - John 4: 10, Hebrews 2: 17
This is truly the heart of the gospel
the work of Christ on Calvary's cross
where He paid the ultimate sacrifice
died for His own for their cause

God hates sin with a holy hatred
for knowing He must kill off sin
in His creation, there...Read More

Death knocks
 I’m stuck in the bog land of poetry
 Trying to make a small manuscript of thirty pages.
 I have reached 29 pages, but all seems so futile
Words I have written before keep cropping up
I can’t endlessly repeat myself.

for seven long years she haunted my dreams

Sam and Maria’s First Kiss

Sam met his wife 
in a dream 
it was his fate

they went to a bar for a date
drank all night like in a dream

Cerebellum's Synaptic Soiree
Lifted lightly from familiarity
Sleep's gesture caresses cells
Taken to nearby bewilderment
Where stagnancy busily dwells

Liquid lambent shooting star forms fragment
Vapid vexations vanquished in fantasy's fire
Mist masked span transcends measurement
Vision fusion surpasses language quagmire 

Imprisoned waking cognition 
held in category's secure structure 
Dispelled...Read More

ode to love on Valentine's Day
Ever since I met you, my dear
?My life has not been the same
Before I found you?
I was lost, sad and lonely

?Going nowhere as fast as possible
I was stuck
?Did not know what direction to pursue
?At the intersection, watching life go by

A certain surge wells up in me,
A nebulous , desultory void
It dwells in me, it survives off me.
I'm sequestered and I can't avoid.

My tongue bleeds of the unsaid,
My heart tears of the unfelt.
My soul rips of the untouched.
And my breath...Read More

Feelings Sacred
I don’t write for you,
I write for me

To dream each dream,
in darkness freed

All gifts unwrapped,
my table set

My voice as spoken,
no regrets

I don’t speak for you,
I speak for me

The trails I’ve bloodied,
scars decree

Each moment purchased,
verses loaned

My feelings sacred
—words my own

I've lived on this for planet five years now,
In deafening silence, that's peaceful somehow.

The moment we crashed, seemed almost a dream;
Stars twinkled above the clouds pink and cream.

We landed in tranquil waters, quite luckily,
And left our craft at the bottom...Read More

Living in the creek’s dark caverns, he was content with his homestead.
His dwelling place had been foretold 
by fairytales on nights so cold.
A promise of the things to come were all that kept the fires fed.

With the moats and other stuff making it look grand,
As we build we'll dream a lot of knights and ladies fair,
While sea gulls fly above our heads in wonderment...Read More

To my unborn child,
whom I will never get to meet.
I'll forever miss the sound of your voice,
and your perfect little feet.

I'll never get to hold your hand,
on walks by the lake.
I'm sorry I let you down,
and met your mommy too...Read More

When I was young my mother's hand
Led me through a joyful land
Where neither war nor hate exist
Nor something more I must resist 

Where nothing but the night is black
And black is never dark for lack
Of something bright or greater light

A Penny For Your Thoughts
As I toss a silver coin into the mango contoured fountain, a lilac laden tone
that reeks of flower garden ether archly probes.

Psychic or clairvoyant

A pleasant scene takes part in a dream,
pursues pleasure of the dream-maker,
as confident eyes commenced a theme,
practiced movies be a filmmaker.

Pursues pleasure of the dream-maker,
empowering fictions that he scheme,
practiced movies be a filmmaker,

I love to keep a low profile
And avoid the limelight

Looking for ways to please loved ones
By subtle random acts of kindness
