The Dance Of The Whirling Wheel of Lights

In the twentieth year on the 11th day of the first month
I saw a vision and the skies open up before me

As I stood facing the south direction the Sun began to dance
In colors of light

The Sun moved to the...Read More

Keep It Christmas-ey
On Christmas Eve,
forget not to have your spirit a-glow
with joy 
Colorful as a bright rainbow

Keep the caroling mood
praise sleigh ride firmament high
Evergreen merrily cool

Making a snow angel groove
is the gaiety move
which warms the thoughts

As the sleepless night descends
on the happy...Read More

A parent is a shotgun
A parent is a shotgun
protecting households and acres,
it turns on enemies without question, a trigger pulled at foul friend.

A parent is a cloud 
craning neck from afar -
revealing sun to enlighten, then rain to dampen mood but nourish, replenish.

The Gift
A babe in swaddling clothes lying in a manger.
To the wise men, He was no stranger.
They presented three gifts to the young Savior.
For He is the Highest Favor.
The first gift leaves no suspense
The first gift was a blissful aroma bottle...Read More

For she would give birth to the Son of Man.
She was visited by Gabriel, the...Read More

Premium Member Born to Save Me
In a small lite stable, 
In a manger made into in a cradle
A beautiful newborn baby 
Born to save me. 
Ten little fingers, ten perfect toes, 
Wrapped in swaddling clothes, 
Sleeping completely still; 
To redeem and fulfill.


Luke 2:12 12This will...Read More

Upon this night wrapped in swaddling clothing
By divine intervention a birth in Bethlehem 
Appeared a child born in a manger under a bright star
No tree was seen with glittering lights only one bright star

we did not DYE in vain
we did not Dye in vain!
from “songs of the sea snails”
though i’m just a slimy crawler,
my lineage is proud:
my forebears gave their lives
(oh, let the trumps blare loud!)
so purple-mantled Royals
might stand out in a crowd.

IHave Seen The Demons

There is a darkness, which dwells inside of me...
  one in which no light can dwell.
I wish that the powers of my spirit
could reach to touch the light outside
Of my inner cavern,

Premium Member Incurable

He studies the dinner card,
ticks off the boxes for Jell-O
and fruit cups; anticipates a deliciousness
that he will later swallow mechanically
on a plastic spoon.

He’s fascinated by his own breath;
tasting it on the exhalation, savoring a coolness,
as lungs struggle to filter
the chemical...Read More

Four Christmas presents were laid down so very long ago,
The very first ones to be given of which that I know.
Seemed not to be much to those ones who may have gathered round
And saw what had been lying...Read More

Till The End Of Time


On the cerulean water designing dream of the lake
seraphic night falls swaddling us ever so very close.
Broken porcelain moon the rhythmic ripples shake,
blithe breeze glides from garden with scent of rose.

I lie in bliss on...Read More

A Jerky Reverie
A Jerky Reverie

Where is the moon just now?
The light shining from the sun
appears, to have blotted it out.
The stark darkness of a motionless 
void, where atomic debris not seen,
 through it, violating solid state.
Harmonious discontent, disconcertedly 
in serial fashion proceeds...Read More

Cast Aside
My heart grew feeble and I fell,
enraptured by illusion's spell.
My fingers lost their grasp - the hilt!
The sword has fallen; blood has spilt. 

And it seemed so sweet to give it up,
in exchange for passion's cup.
Drunk, I stumbled to the...Read More

A day in the life:Stella's movie
pizza and nicotine
another hungover morning
beneath the thanatosphere
threading through the beige stone walls
and passing by the cloth puppets
blinking away in profuse greeting
living is but linen swaddling
eating is but nourishing plastic
nights are twinkling reds and yellows
in mechanistic majesty
angels are hovering nearby
but only...Read More

Premium Member Your Tears
There in your gaze your anger
steams past swollen cherry lids
and your confusion is lost in your glazed stare.
The beauty of your dreams now disappears.
You cry,
and the pain seems washed away.
The tears stream, welcome,
dripping from your softly rounded chin
cleansing you...Read More

The original homeless ones
Oh, I have no earthly home
Parents and I, roaming

Hiding from rulers and men
Come before you naked
Later wrapped in swaddling clothes
The original homeless  ones
Born from the Holy Ghost
Mother Mary was it's host
And God allowed...Read More
