Premium Member Christian Evangelical-Charismatic Republicans

Premium Member PolyPaths Toward WarmFelt Metaphor
A childhood memory warmly reminds

A game of Where's the Thimble,

Premium Member The Timelines

From thirsting shoots, the timelines grew
to stubborn stems that clasped the strings
of magnetism, space, decay
and gravity. The paths they knew

unbreakable yet formless things 
defying turmoil’s beckonings,
