Excitement awaiting a thunderstorm
Early morning April 8th, 2020 
meteorologic destiny manifested...
rumbling atmospheric thuds,
promised natural exultant
sound and light show
subsequently within minutes
dully rightly appraised as dud,

yours truly forced himself awake
way before dawn's early light
all for naught, yet...
thus hours later summoned,
perhaps lame poetic material

In silent stone and blinded eyes
their monuments to
their own wasted lives
as quiet as unpredictable
they stand in lines
all animated in the hopeful
waiting for the all surpassing time

Touching the sky
and feeling the earth
buried knee deep in throw away filth
wondering and deceiving

Awesome stars* are art works of the Almighty 
Beauteous midst darkness, sparkling bright
Creation masterpieces supremely crafted
Designed perfectly to serve as eyes’ delights.

Extolling the grandeur of divine excellence
Firmament jewels driving astronomic flight
Galaxy ornaments that mystify constellation gazers

Yours truly, (i.e. I) quickly

hubble basket cases) fit into authorized bag

Our reality are thoughts carefree,
were created for the purpose of
being infinite surpassing scope
all the lives that lived and lives to be.

Truth en route for tables tangible,
where tainted lives have a chance for hope,

I surely don't mean to brag or boast
But my words have been read to many a toast
Golden words may flow now and again
Raging from the poet's pen

Sculpted and molded some words beware
Some poets write truth and others just flair
Some are...Read More

The misty morning reaches
for the mighty—
the air, flummoxed,
as they crash into 
the little-known darkness.

Another life—taken,
reaching for the mighty,
clutched by
the merciless fogs of death...

He was a believer of dreams
with impeccable ability,
displayed in both physique and character—
a heart of gold,
a soul of...Read More

enthralling with shades verily wondrous  
highlighting glorious hues

…“that great city… out of heaven from God.”*

My Dogs Eleventh Year

It doesn’t seem possible I tell myself –
eleven years already and going on twelve!
I suppose I should have a party – a piece

of prime beef lit with eleven candles. 
But he’d never get close enough to blow them out.

A Lion Chases
Is consciousness emergent,
or de facto zero sum

Is what we know about ourselves,
a walk or more a run

A lion knows to chase a deer,
but not the reason why

The truth inherent in abstraction,
lost upon the fly

As man continues onward,
his psyche then will...Read More

our firmament’s majestic show

through avid searching to and fro

Resonant like the moon, the sun’s shining — a halo through leafy oak.
The dark canopy like fig leaves, attempting to hide the naked bloke.

First glimpse of beauty
Warm water cleans my soiled body.
Viewing a naked woman, I stand.
Washing me and overlooking my sin,
“Look, our bodies are beautiful.”

Angels were given beauty as this.
Muses aspired for beauty as pure as this.
Love never arouse above this mark.
Etched in my mind...Read More

Endeavors called great
…Spiritual or carnal? 

Christ-aimed target… 
…Surpassing self-glory?

Worthy purpose…
Pleasing God with faith*
…Is that ephemeral?

Midst happenings’ adventures
Beyond happiness-overtures
My soul, wrapped with joyousness*
Exalts God’s redemption’s preciousness.

Against sin-guilt tortures
Surpassing sorrow’s despair gestures
My spirit, gripped by Christ’s forgiveness
Worships Him with grateful blissfulness.

Toward refreshing green pastures
Guarded from unbelief junctures
My faith, resting in the Lord’s trustworthiness
Increases to minister through...Read More
