Flight   1 comment

Flying in a metal bird

Made from man’s imagination

All this effort and ingenuity

To get from here to there

For years of countless generations

This has been a burning quest

Requiring time and talent and much unrest

To first believe then achieve a skyward peopled flight

I propose that this has been disguised and often unidentified

This inner knowing, constant yearning, mental churning

Desire to attain an ultimate and evident closeness to the Heavens

To be nearer to our home

Oh foolish generation

Who knows not God as Love

A commuter-ship to Mars and back still would leave a desert gap

If not navigated by the Spirit

Making heaven home the mark

By pleasing our Creator

With love for one another

Is a worthy goal and an unparalleled destination

The Center of the Edge   2 comments

Here I am standing on the edge of this present moment

At the precipice of here and now

Tempted by tomorrow

Muscles strain to maintain motionless in this place

All might it takes sometimes to merely be at peace and trust

The yet undiscovered treasures of this very moment

Vision clears to realize

All that is worthwhile

I take a breath

Thank God for this

To linger while I smile

Curtain Call   8 comments

Oh Lord I pray to hear your voice when you call

Especially in times when I cannot see you at all

Like a mariner dependent on bearings and instruments

Seeking port on a far and distant shore

Cause my heart to rise above the depths of unknown seas

And in that fleeting moment bask in the brilliance of Your majesty

The Signs of New Beginnings   3 comments

Angels woo me with their murmurings

Assurance that they’re near

Taunting, almost haunting their energy so clear

Like water purified and rushing to carbonate the soul

To inspire one to inquire how to reach the highest spire

While still tethered to the earth

Prayers authored by the heart

Rise above this graven gravity

Informed by the eternal, ignited by God’s love

Let There Be Light   1 comment

Black and white gives me a greater sense of the power of light … and the power of light gives me a greater knowledge of the power of God … and the power of Love that is, where ever I choose to find it …

Knowing Where My Home Lies   2 comments

How happiness can be curtailed

By the sudden notion of its temporariness

How families once united must each go their own way

That nothing in this world can stay

In any sort of constant state

Oh grievous heart now heavy sinks

When all at once acknowledging

This is not my home

Do not here relax and think

That this is all there is

Oh God with strings from heaven

Lift my heart to Thee

Where angels sing and love and joy is born anew in each and every moment

Where eyes are fixed on only You

For this is why I know

That to You my heart belongs

And for You, I live a foreigner

On this plain till work is done

With love to give me breath each day to carry on
