Yes that man redeems
_He saved even me, the vilest offender.
O yes He did!
The lowliest of the lowly
With glory untold
Touched even me
_ a touch that made all the difference.
He died yes He did
By but the weakest hand
Dying the nastiest death
To redeem this hopeless wretch.
And this I can tell
The lamb of God yes He Saves
For He saved even me
The vilest of all.
Stay and dance for awhile
in my head as I play the unheard
music you dance to upon your heel
looking like the woman in red
a far memory, woman in my dream
who eludes me each night
I kiss her lips of cream
She… fades amid the dark light
then calls out from the deep,
it’s written in stars _ upon your heart
encryption only read in my sleep
all you desire to say to me in Egyptian art.
The Bible says we must never treat any part of God’s creation with contempt - when we do - we are indirectly treating our Creator with contempt - “God” calls us to be stewards or trustees of "His" creation and the Bible reminds us that we are responsible to "Him" in every way we treat it - when we hurt God’s creation’s - we also hurt ourselves . . .
Please - I have a voice - I will be heard . . .
Please listen carefully to my every word . . .
Please leave God’s creatures’ well alone . . .
Or your life on this earth will be thrown . . .

I am Goddess _ I have created myself sexless _ therefore I am neither he, she, or it.
I am called upon by many; however, the names you have given me are out of your need to express dominance_ for power is an unnecessary illusion driven by the lust to control. Control does not exist in the realm of unity.
I am neither good nor bad _ there is only action and reaction as-a-result of motion and emotion.
I have created myself formless _ therefore I am neither here nor there.
Upon your beck and call, I come to you in the image of your own comfort _ therefore you will recognize me.
I speak in every language, at-all-times _ therefore, you will only hear a sound when I am in motion as Life forms and reforms. There is never a quiet moment in the life continuum. There are those who constantly hear me even though I, myself am noiseless.
I am never at rest _ therefore, you will only see me in increments of momentary time.
I am colorless _ therefore, what you see is the residue of my past, which marks the spot of my future present, as I cycle and recycle in endless motion.
You may think I am beholding you and that you hear my voice, Nay! It is only the power of your thinking and your desire to remember me.
I am Goddess. I am Life. I am Continuous.
It’s truly Greek to me and you
“Agape” may sound like the English, agape
I gape; are we awed by Christ loving me and you
The human in me is a swine, sloppy and greedy for love
Consumers-Supreme, like shopping for shoes and food,
Hording homes, trophies, even the Dodo and dove
Beloved, the love of God is not to be presumed
The Creator of the behemoth, leviathan, and atom _
Imagine: He wants a relationship with puny humans
Imagine: His kiss, the force that holds up the universe
Prevents atoms from splitting in awe and fission
Gave all to love ... gives every gift, but we won't converse
O Holy Spirit, forgive me! I take too much for granted
The One who split the firmament into heaven and ocean
Who tells the blood how to make life’s music
Became a baby in Mary’s womb, to grow slow by slow
Suffer like us, become the Perfect Adam, such love
Only He can take my rags, wrap me in His High Priestly robe!
I used to be a romantic; forgive me for seeing how obscene
Is a love that is all face and human flesh
Forgetful, ungrateful of the source; agape love that kisses the perverse
How to conceive this, almost beyond any human being
Such love shames the greatest fairy tale or happily ever after
I want too much ... missing all the while, mysteries of living
Glory to Father-Son-Holy Spirit, amen.© Anil Deo, 20170331
Boreas, God of the North Wind
Of Winter and North Wind
Swept down from cold northern mountains
Cold icy gusts
Of breath from bloated cheeks
Hair and beard spiked with ice, wide mouth
Seen as horse-shaped
Purple-winged swift stallion
He swept down on mares early spring
For King of Troy
Mated with Trojan mares
Fathered the swift, wind-shaped stallions
King of Athens’
In riverside meadow, playing,
by her dancing
And struck with mad desire
He abducted her to the sky
In soft white clouds
Their love seeded daughter
Khione, beautiful goddess
Chased away the Harpies
That threatened the King Phineus
Praising him, the god of the cold
