Now Think This: A Journey of Faith, Hope and Trust
As we walk the down
The path of life
We find some areas aren't
As well lit as others.
And it's within these sections
That our hope seems to fade
As we go through them.
Fears begin to surface
When we can't see
What's in front of us,
Questions of...Read More

Sustaining your wellbeing
Is the happiness within you
Silence, say no more
Captivating your soul
Is the strength within you

Do not expect the journey
To be smooth sailing
The final destination
Is closer than you think
Do not expect the audiences
To understand who you are
To be yourself is...Read More

After I Sleep, After I Sleep

This happens just beyond you know,
A field of pleasure and delight,
Where frost once held and now let free,
Need I of sleep, so I must go.

Think different should I remain,
To set my sights, a righteous glee,

In his hey days of youth
defying all obstacles
fiercely independent
reeping honors
medals and awards
he went beyond
further than most men
with sheer willpower
till suddenly
stealth and unforeseen
crept in time
the twilight
of bygone days
like a veil dropping
a hush circling
a mist rolling in
a fog growing denser
around his world

The day has run its course
The sun and moon
Change shifts as stars
Illuminate the sky.
Deep in thought as I
Comfortably rest,
My holographic world
Takes hold as
Hypothalamus gears downshift
To easy rider smooth
Cruise mode and I drift
Off to sleep.
My spirit rises freely as
I look back...Read More

with all of his might.  Jesus blesses the little
children every where in the world.
Every little boy and every little girl.

A Pool of Blood
Blood spilling in the east running all the way to the west
Forming rivers of doubt in the north and South
An army of men converge along the river bank
With long guns strapped to their sides
And big army bags parachuting from their...Read More

Premium Member 'Pages in Time'
In recollections-
of my life's journey, thus far
the tattered pages flutter
     in my mind, snapshots  . . .
black and white and color, drift- 
faces, glimpses of places.

And I stand trembling-
as wind takes my tangled hair
I walk...Read More

Yellow orbs regard us
from a gray anvil head as still as stone.
It’s a broken wing rescue.
We keep releasing it, but it comes back.
The ranger looks bemused,
the caged raptor swivels its focus
as if reading sounds.
We took him to a lake...Read More

A task not made easy by concrete and iron

Premium Member Ask This of Yourself
Does the butterfly dream of (or gravitate more) to the form
That emerges from silk (spun cocoons)? Does the mist
Of a waterfall know it births rainbows, sense honor in fall?
Though it plummets scant inches or thousands of feet,
Does it know it...Read More

Valentine's Season Again
I was laughing so casually …
Everything was perfect for such a long time.
Then I caught a pair of eyes searching in the crowd.
It amused me…his eyes rested upon somebody.
He was cracking a joke about some fair lady.
He looked flirtatious but...Read More

A flower blooms in paltry places
To nature's gardens tall and wide
Little eyes on petalled faces
A sweet short time before she dies

Her moment flowered like no other
Short-lived but more than beauty allows
Eternal clocks are for nature's mother
Endless deadlines for her till...Read More

Reach For The Stars

Life is short,
so dream big and reach for the stars
because nothing is impossible for the dreaming hearts,
take risks, be courageous, and wander on you dreamers
for sky is the limit even for you non-believers,
remember life is fleeting

If heaven is our home
the cosmic realm
where we come from
and return
this would mean…
that by default…
our life here on earth 
is actually us
deciding to
take a break
from heaven
is it just me
is that not
the oddest
most mindblowing

In the falling snow,
I came across a bare tree
Filled with a flock of small birds

Sitting on branches
They were united, waiting
For their next flight in journey

Evening arrived scattering snowflakes,
I sought a solitary
Through winter’s barren woods
Made magical this night
With glittering snow
Gracing every empty branch
Each twig
In the muffled silence of a downy dusk
And, thinking that I walked
Enfolded in the snowy twilight,
Only with myself,
I overlooked the footprints
Slowly walking...Read More

At one fleeting imperative instant in my stretched journey of life 
I had to wage a war.
At stake my ordained short life 
A war warranting its stretch some scarce second more 
My adversaries rallied their troops quickly than I blinked

Make the most of what you got
How do you really know what's wrong or right?
As when we leave our nest and begin first flight.
How do we learn that when we spread our wings,
That we will glide through life to learn new things.
Sometimes our journey wont be...Read More

Coffee my saviour
Time can never undo
The pain that a man gives
Time cannot give a smile
Only God gives you that pride

Just believe in it's existence

When did I learn to walk?
The awkward stance,
a toddler’s uncertain step,
stumbling, falling, 
getting up again until
rhythm of feet and
balance work in sequence, 
was that when I learned
to walk? No.

When did I learn to walk?
Kindergarten marches,
a military parade of sorts
around a...Read More

Premium Member Journey of Death
Death said to me
Come, baby,
I want to take you
To a long journey.

Journey of silence
Journey of happiness
Journey of pleasure
Journey of leisure.

To the finishing line
Nothing to find
Leave the wisdom
Enjoy freedom.

Nothing to worry
Nothing to hurry
Nothing to sacrifice
To die only satisfies.
