The poem(s) are below...

Ears - God's Drums

ears they are drums
god plays in this realm

eyes they are lenses
he places to magnify 
his creations

tongue are channels 
to his kingdom - adam 
missed the right apple
and lost his right to an eternal home

my nerves are rivers
god fashions to help me
sail in his world to admire him

my mind, his inspiration as
to how extensive his creation is
you cannot reach its end nor beginning

my soul a repository for god to wine and dine
when his drums stop beating, lenses are  covered
riverway closed and the mind wanes in a mortal frame
