Premium Member My Time Machine
My chair, 
at times over 
the past twelve weeks
my prison cell. 
Seven weeks more 
before my sentence
is completed. 
But today,
my chair is going to be
my time machine.

Not flashy and gaudy,
with a Christmas display
of flashing, colorful lights,
nor as threatening as that

playful innocence
far from trappings of gifts and fanfare
Christmas will always be for family
for showing appreciation
of the closeknit everlasting bond
that wanting to be together
that warmth
the thoughtfulness
the jokes
the laughter
the hot meal
more like a feast
prepared with love
the anticipation
the joy
lasting memories

And He Cried
In front of impending disaster

He stood there

Right beside the operation theater

Watching his parents

Going mad with pain

A thousand thoughts were flowing in his mind

What would happen if his brother couldn’t survive

The doors get opened

What he feared the most just happened

Highlighting the Lord God’s omnipotence
Bible stories expose His miracles
along His mercy’s faithful persistence
smiting torturous hatred’s tentacles.

Greatly enthralled by biblical events

Poetry says many things
Some of them very true
But poetry could ne'er express
The love God has for you.

The words existing in the world
Inadequately say
How faithfully He guides our feet
Along the narrow way.

Nor could our meager words express
His patience when we fail

Be thankful of the dawn for a new day begins

A crescent moon says good night to the milky way. 
Trees stand still, asleep in the absent...Read More
