much more real good would have been done

I was never a great athlete, just a sub-par one at best.
I don't sing, play an instrument, nor did I ever learn to dance.

The Blackest Page In The Scriptures -Matthew 26: 20-25
What a terrible passage here conveyed
showing how wicked is the human heart
allowing sin to overtake that person
leading them in Satan's hand in no small part

This is seen in the person of Judas Iscariot
a disciple that betrayed his master
one that made...Read More

''Better Days"

Better days indeed!
Its been long since a smile appeared 
upon my grumpy face.
The rain refused to fall,
It  was now a dry heart like erosion to soil
of sadness and no hope...

We laughed with misery within
no sense of belonging, no...Read More

Eternal Father,
I offer You this poem
A scribbling of thoughts
While I'm at home

John 19:34-37 is Scripture
When Jesus receives puncture
All the way to His forgiving Heart
Where blood & water flowed out

Peaceful effect from
Gazing on the painting:
To know we're beloved
Prevents despair's fainting

BlackFriday suffering,
as Buddhist allies would speak of global Anti-EarthDay pathology,
and sin,
as Messianic Christ travelers, 
un-privileged immigrant/emigrants,
migrants speak uneasily of Win/Lose destiny,
anxiously headed for Lose-Ego/Lose EcoHabitat Earth,
internal and external climate degeneration 

Suffering and sin are graceful integrity's fragmentation,

Hallelujah, What a Savior
On that fateful day He went away,
His disciples hid, full of fear and dismay.
His family gazed through tear filled eyes,
At the man non believers had despised.

The veil rent in two, which man could not do,
The sun was eclipsed when His...Read More

At place of Skulls

My Cross is set

Nailed hands and feet

Crowned thorns of death

Darkness surrounds

The veil is torn

Blood is shed

And I'm reborn

Into your hearts

God's word will shine

We'll be together

time after time

What was said 

Is forever true

Love one another

That we, too,might rise one day,
By His most heavenly grace, 
And live in God's holy estate!

Easter brings back sad memories. 
My mother died on Good Friday.
She was a bible scholar and quoted
Jesus's words every day to us kids.
I remember her love for lavender,
Her operatic gentle voice singing to us.
How she loved little children with joy

There were roses on Calvary that day, you know.

Being melancholy confusion,

Saying seriously that we are who we are.

That mountain of dandruff was what we saw,
they all lose anyways so why not chop it off?

At the sound,

At the towns,

We were liverworts and lackadaisical not?

They were who people are on...Read More

Calvary is an assent that seems base,
a mountain Love climbs.

The cross is a stake
driven in the heart
of the earth
to save it from lies,

holds a weight 
that’s forgotten
and cries,
hangs a promise
it cannot betray.

Hold on with all your strength!
There’s power in climbing

Villanelle 5 'Death Goes A-Begging, Once We Pluck His Sting'
Death goes a-begging, once we pluck his sting!

In Imitation of Christ, laugh and sing!

Though Christ has shot the arrow through the ring,
Still we must live out parables, now and then,
