Woman In My Dream

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.

I Have A Voice - I Will Be Heard

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 Have Loved So Cruelly


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

   gazed at their grief and sounds of raining tears; all
   they      could  see  was  the  blood - stained cross, 
   they      forgot   that  He  was  a  gift  for      us all. 
   Once more He  a r o s e  on the third day     to  be
