Knee Deep There you are Knee deep in those waters Where most sense danger And then run & scatter Yet you have wandered outward Seemingly without a care All around you life’s flows never cease But do not be so foolish As to let all your follies increase Beware those seemingly Placid waters for now Do not upward rise quickly & underneath them drag you down God still cries, holds out arms To bring you home Back onto a safer ground Wishes for you to cease to roam No longer within his voice’s sound Or out of his love’s caresses Leave those roaring depths of satan’s dangers All those lurid temptations hold nothing but the cunning voice of a stranger Yield to Christ’s love flowing freely In His bright blood on a cross Step out of those cold dark powers That carry only the pain of sin’s deepest loss
Twisted Beauty Long and lithe Luxurious In your sensuality Yet some would only see A twisted beauty Gnarled, darkened in spots Your limbs still dance at Water’s edge Yet still of a life to tell Do you quietly beg Even though not nearly as bright as those rainbow’s lights Cascading upon a watery top Once you were the same As any other Green, alive, strong For those days perchance do you still reminisce & long? But I say with all sincerity I find your beauty refreshing Entrancing It reminds us that life is life No matter its age Or regardless of the stage Within which it is found God’s love & care perhaps May yet best be seen or found Enwrapped around those Who all their long life Have best fulfilled the purposes of His grace, beauty & His light!
In between the hospital stay and now my husband’s rehab clinic stay, I found a few minutes to take photos and write another poem. I hope you enjoy these and have a very blessed day. Praise God!
Fall’s Gilded Girls Fall’s gilded girls All in a row Why would one ever think In you resides no soul? Your curly locks Bright splashes of color Adorn your heads As upon no others Some look at you and See merely trees But from only one glance I believe is seen The Spirit, the Soul, If you please, Of the one who designed Your bright glistens & gleams With a powerful hand and With the greatest of glee Your bright glories were created By our God for all to see And to know that they are truly loved From His all-joyful Heaven up above So for our pure pleasure it can be found To be placed upon your yellowed brow The brightest of creation’s most golden of crowns
My sweetest, little husband of 48 years has just been diagnosed with metastatic prostate cancer. He is very sick and in the hospital. He has had multiple strokes and heart rhythm problems, is very sick and weak. I do not know if he will make it or not. I would just appreciate any prayers for his healing or a peaceful passing for him from this world. He is one of the sweetest, kindest people I have ever known and at times has been so good to me. Praise God! Below is a poem I dedicate to him.
OUTSIDE (to my husband) Outside of Our sense of reality Of what we only see With eyes Allowed to touch Only with fingers, hands Existing within the Limited plans of man Is another place, world Kingdom Of an Almighty & Holy Son Another dimension Of glory, His Holy light Empowered by His Grace and loving might Outside this universe of Rocks & stones Planets swirling Gases twirling Suns burning Full of all our yearnings Lives a gloriously beautiful Creator King Of whom with full voices The angels sing All of our heartbeats together Could not equal the Eternal joys & pleasures Of His forever lights & glories Reflected in all of the ancient’s Wisest stories So let go of your desires Fueled by hell’s hottest fires For only physical things You see now Enter that higher level of Heaven’s, Infinity’s brightest lights Of Angels’ wings & breath So you also may tell of A place of only life Forever with no more death!
Lost & Found Once there was a TV show With the title of Lost It was only make-believe, fantasy But Sadly today it is for many Their reality Just look around In every, village home & town They are everywhere It does not take a very Long or difficult stare To find them For them God’s heart aches You might say it even breaks So if we are to do, fulfill His most passionate & good,& holy will To them we must go He does not want them To live as in that show Always lost and seeking God desires greatly to be Found To put everyone back standing Upright on His Most Holy Ground
