New Poems

Praying* fervently is Scripture-lighted.
Thus, we must be spiritually prompted
Being divinely-led, not foolishly blinded
As to God we’re fully yielded.

Praying ceaselessly demands trust in the Saviour’s omnipotence.
Thus, we must have faith, coupled with persistence
Seeking His presence against own confidence
As to Him we...Read More

Surrendering To The Muse
Putting up the white flag,
laying down my gun

Turning my back on fantasy,
projects left undone

Unlike other enemies,
she’s neither front nor back

But lives where only she can go,
where color turns to black

Her voice becomes a mimic,
ventriloquist of my soul

As words come uninvited,

My beautiful mystical rose
From the ashes of defeat you rose
Beauty bestowed lacking flaws
The same iron lady everyone knows
With your slightest move they tremble; your foes
As David with the lion you tear away their jaws
Running away their king bows
Surrendering; retreat he...Read More

Along His leadership as the supreme Almighty Deity---

Submitting ourselves to His authority.

Along His omnipotence while manifesting gentleness---

A Peaceful Setting
Written: by Miracle man

The fulgent sun has settled lower, 
at long last, surrendering to darkness.

Street lights now permeate through leafless Oak branches
creating skeletons on mottled ground.

Seemingly intent on disrupting my peaceful setting
is a pair of Owls conversing sound.

Two women fighting over last cart
                 Unsophisticated, brawling, stubborn,
   Short. Up rolls a knight, armor shining bright,

She is a beautiful girl
As she walks through the Valley of Trust
With her parents
At eleven

She becomes more graceful
As she sprints through the Grasslands of Independence
Without her parents due to a dispute
At twelve

She hunches her back
As she swims through the River...Read More

Surrendering To Love
All passion enslaved to Aphrodite,
her chains beyond silver or gold

Where time will forever surrender,
 to love—never purchased or sold

With well-chosen words he called to her to come closer.
Behind his blue eyes lay labyrinths filled with laughter.
The treasure now revealed, titillates her heart with joy.
His comforting touch lays claim to all her hopes and dreams.

Make a choice, endless longing...Read More

Alas, t'would mean the words would weep
Alone in unconstructed phrase
Hanging fruit ne'er to be picked
Nor fall to seed again.

No swords succumb in verbal joust
To plow shares love of peace
No flower passed to maiden fair
To adorn the flax of wind blown...Read More

In a twinkling gaze, when all is said and due
In repertoire of wealth, your lack diminish but rue
Stepping into the new horizon, negativity is set to crunch
Praying for the very next sparkle, the sparkles of hint and clue.

December, your cold and joyful full days 
Enchant even the old bare and brittle, gnarled limbs. 
Your stirring snow fall round and round with wings 
Vestal shine faintly wavering with sun's gold rays. 
A breeze, a kiss, entices a craze...Read More

Nefarious Neurology
The dopamine seductress
Invigorating your animal instinct
Revitalizing your susceptibility to pleasure
and inclination towards familiarity
It is the most diabolical influence
Acting with no regard for psychological longevity
Torturing the pathways into surrendering
to an influx of degenerative saturation
Fulfillment falters
and self actualization settles prematurely

I have never met Keanu Reeves
Never heard his real time voice
I don’t know how his mind works
Never felt an impact of his choice.

Yet I often read the words he writes
Which fill my eyes with tears
For his words so charged...Read More

Femme fatale nonpareil
She enters the room, sipping blood red wine,
Work of art, all competition fades, outshined,
Well spoken yet vulnerable, designed to attract,
Capturing attention, vanguard of her attack. 

Waited ones lifetime, “Ne plus ultra” comes along,
Drawn towards her, praying nothing goes wrong,
What a...Read More

Colorful are the skies

 lost in their dyes,

Cold are the stones 

displaying their tones…

Captive their surrender 

of hearts in their tender,

Aromas in distribution 

solitudes of seclusion…

Nights in their mourning

 frosts are aborning,

Stranded in their storms

 as the weather conforms…

Dancing upon the shifting crystal stage
The leaf is destined to dance the dance of the river
Aimlessly floating, turning, twirling

Its petiole dampened by the clear water
Washing over the cheerful green blade
Filtering through its veins

Exultant, is it not?

You had me oblivious to your antics,

Fox frisks snow 
with seeking whiskers,

finds a waft of her
on frozen winds.

There! There in the moonlight,
his hearts delight!
Fox sniffs, snuffles,
snares the sweetness,
follows her warmth.

In he goes, first nose
then his whole lusty heart.

Lord of the coop,
he lolls his tongue inside her,...Read More

Surrendering fronds spread as
songbirds inspiration alights,
A wide-eyed newborn coos to
outer wonder in dressed whites.

Some children whispers in ears 
while playing, swing set in motion,
as bundled toddlers climb aloft,
pushed in thorough devotion.

Carpets of cool colors change midst
breaths of frost wind of...Read More
