Premium Member Bluebeard Promises
Bluebeard’s promises lure our unwary natures 
on to the shaky bridge which we need only cross 
to reach that which we dream.

We convince ourselves that if we tread carelessly,
the rotten planks, unnoticed at first glance will hold
long enough to claim...Read More

Letting someone in is not always easy, perhaps.
Here comes the request, a voice a bit surer than that
I was reluctant as letting in is not always easy, perhaps….
We, I, you are performers of invisible strings.
Captured in our own shadows of...Read More

Premium Member Peace Beyond Understanding
Though I’d searched far, no freedom could I find
till Solace came to me and stilled my mind.
His Presence stood and ended my soul’s war.
No freedom had I found, though I’d searched far.

My mind untangled from its reasoned fear
and cast aside...Read More

Have I the investment for you
Money to invest?
To stay ahead of the rest,
Not sure who you can trust.

Look no further,
Nothing can be surer,
Buy one for your mother,
Sell one to your Brother,
No longer a need for a broker

Guaranteed to be the best labelling gun on the...Read More

Through the Darkness
Through the Darkness

Caught by some frail hope I wonder.
"Twixt the vales of sorrow dim.
And my soul is cast asunder;
By the slightest evil whim.

Yet my soul in Jesus sinking;
Finds a peace to sweet to tell. 
Mankind has no surer anchor;

Gainst Wind and Tide
Still now, she lies there gently
as the dawn begins to rise; 
and dares to men, forsake her 
for some surer, safer climb.

She whispers, in the evening
when the quiet holds the night; 
and beckons to them gently,
in the wake of hellish...Read More

It seems, in truth, that I'm such a glutton,

By The Bistro
How can I be so sure.
There have been many times where I have been sure before.
In fact, surer than sure.
Standing outside of myself; I brush pass every other thought.
A space crowded with nowhere particularly to be.
Except here.
Shoulders brush against the thought...Read More

An Immutable World

Come softly to the immutable world
of a loved one with Alzheimer's disease
where one memory is as precious pearl
and the process of is no longer ease

Bereft of all time, knowledge, place and self

Today's Past
I am not sure
how I feel today,
but I am surer
of what I felt yesterday


Each moment

I have built---
all that we have

In all it's reflexivity.

You Have Felt Me

You said my name
You saw my soul
You let me hold your heart with my unsure hands
Brought tears to my eyes
Without words
You have felt me

I walked with You
After many long years away
I asked You "Why now"
"How do I know what is...Read More

I well remember that night

The sky was pouring 
On the reflections of the dancing street lights I stomped

 I was cold and scared 
 I could sense the ghosts chasing me on the demolished walls

To that joyous season when we'll roll in clover
Smell the spring air

Best season by far, there's nothing more surer

Who is this would-be Redeemer

Whether for good or evil

10-16-14: In a Conference Hall
The grey chairs form a perfect line of grey,
Like stagnant, grey-clad businessmen at work.

THE BELOVED CHILD
(Christ's nature pictured in a little child.)



Should Christ desire his nature known,

 His manner so meek and mild.

 Could he not take one of his own,

 Reveal himself in a child?
