Monday Prayer In the middle of my lostness Wanderings, dark sleep You took the time To search For this one miniscule Lost sheep Good Shepherd, You are the one who Never leaves the one behind Thank you for the saving Of me; body, soul & mind
Not Just Candy on the Top Shining, glorious On top That bright red Cherry Gleaming, glistening On top of whipped crème A most delicious berry Just a nice add-on Makes it more enticing Milkshake underneath Solid, frothy Coming closer to being Desired But tis an unnecessary Thing Does not decrease Or increase The shake beneath Or detract from its Power To make us wish it To devour I sometimes think Of God & Christ We have made Like that cherry That piece on top of stuff A small enhancement, Merely a small piece Of fluff In comparison to That solid milkshake Rest of our lives Are we really going to Wait until our body dies To see reality, God’s importance, Why wait until that time Of crisis? Today, make God The solid majority Of your life Desire most The Lord Of all the angelic hosts The center of your being As ephemeral you become & more fleeting!
Troubled Soul Troubled Soul, Troubled Soul, Do not sit In the darkness’s glow It’s angry face Leaves only the sting And disgrace Of rejection Sitting in a brackish cell Formed by cruelty Coming only from hell Troubled Soul Hear these words For your pain there Is a certain cure Above this darkened Black air Over your bowed head And tangled hair A small light glows Comes from Heaven To let you know There is a someone Who knows your name Wishes to discharge your pain Forever Christ loves your heart Which has sat in the dark For too long So raise your head Listen to every word Being said Inside your spirit He will implant His own There His truest Love & Graces Will forever be sown!
In the Snow In the snow They go These blue-grey ghostly, Shadowy footprints in the white Maybe even dead of night To and fro They never seem to Slow Even up the steps They go Do you possibly suppose Unbeknown they May leave behind, Expose. A small piece of each Imprint-owner’s Soul??
In The Beginning Chronicle III Eden’s glory on Full review In yellows, Greens & Brilliant azure blues Unflawed life With Perfection’s love No displeasure felt About which to sigh Walking under clearest skies Nor reason or complaint Over which to die Wait, what is that, To die? Understood not yet Or known No pain or regret With which to live Only joy & love A thing called death Living only in the shadows Air is always clean & fresh Only peace is Ever seen Between earth, sky & the sea Man & all animals Live only & always In harmony to be Food abundant Work is no toil No displeasure there To ever despoil Its sense of purpose Or the ease Of life lived under Gentle trees Swaying softly overhead At night only rest Is found in all their beds Until one day With a slight chill An unknown shadow passes A rustling in the grasses Never heard before The man stopped to sniff The air The woman paused to express only a mild care But in naivete On that most unusual day Neither knew from Experience they lacked What formidable evil Slithered, Invading their Paradise Now lurking & looming Behind their backs

I got the opportunity to do a book review of a new book of poetry. It is the first book for Kathi Burg, and is available on Amazon.
This is a lovely little book containing uplifting messages for anyone struggling through difficult circumstances. With simple yet clear writing, Kathi leaves uplifting words for life’s difficulties and dark struggles. God is in the middle of all our valleys in life and wants to love us through and in the middle of them. You will enjoy the hope that these poems will leave you with. Almost every poem is illustrated with beautiful pictures that colorfully convey the meaning behind the verses.
Have a blessed day!
