Everlasting to Everlasting

An awesome expanse by unrighteous unrippled
Senseless in sense that senses can't pry
The secrets
Souls defenseless, crippled
Crumple, defeated and fate decry.

The Last Laugh (Hope for You)

He gives hope to the hopeless
Life to the lifeless
Sight to the blind


Slippery hope
Snaking horizon
Passionately pursued
Difficult to hold.

If caught...what joy!
New vision! New life!
Vitality bursts
Quenches all thirsts.

But still, in feast,
A niggling doubt,
Will wriggling hope
Abruptly leave?

Hearts afire
Often doused
When death and loss
Their loved ones cleave.

Hope cocooned
Kept for this time
Released by incisions
Fate's cuts unkind.

It splits the horizon
That dams Life from death
Floods desert eyes
With visions of bliss.

No longer slippery
Or threatened by loss
This Hope is alive
Though death exhaust.

In the Blink of an Eye

Like shade being drawn, the world disappeared,
Plunged into blackness severe, surreal,
Panic ensued as anxiety veered
Upward, invoking God's mercy to shield.
Formerly vision-filled beauty I'd glossed,
Roses and riches and unworldly wares,
Came back to haunt this detestable dross,
Spectres that hinted of light unimpaired.
Gone were the moments when wakening dawn
Lit up the pupils assembled to see
How meshing morning and meekness could spawn
An orchestral feast illumined by Thee.
But just when the last ray was softened, chinked,
I opened my eyes and found that I'd blinked.


In Grace

Thy Dwelling Place

Thy dwelling place
High throne of Grace
Beheld by some yet bound to earth

Thy courtyard green
Where gathered sing
Enraptured by Salvation's girth

The flag that flies
On azure skies
Denotes a country filled with Faith

While seething, scorched,
The teeming, torched,
Catch glimpses sent through Heaven's Gate.

A day anon
When, battle won,
Soldiers felled will fill the halls

The Chalice raised
Will toast the brave
And recompense all tattered souls

While streams of tears
That spanned the years
Transfigure to a merry brook

The foreign wars,
Unsettled scores,
Forgotten now the earth's been shook.

Discovery Avails (New Beginnings)

Discovery avails to every child,
Like a patient pedagogue, a ready repast,
A feast to fulfill the deepest foray
Of an appetite honed unseen, unlatched.

Air-filled lungs, a spank or two,
Peepers pop ope to a world awash
In color and sound and sights, all new,
Puzzles aplenty, questions unquashed.

Some journeys are brief, a day or less,
Some are quite long, some rough, some smooth,
Some are cut short on battlefields,
Some seem unfair, some lucky, some cruel.

Whatever your journey, whatever your path,
Whatever your travels as history builds,
Remember each day, when you open your eyes,
Discovery awaits, you're a child, be fulfilled.

Majesty Tapestry

Our lives are like threads
Weaving back and forth
Sometimes knotted
Sometimes spotted with painful hues
Sometimes imbued with Royal blood
Always connected.

From truth injected beyond memory
We feel the pull of unseen hands
To submit
For a time, diverge,
Then find the place where all threads converge
In a Tapestry of Majesty.

The End is a Beginning

The end is a beginning
In mystery, majesty,
In season
By travelers
Blown by the Wind
They yearn to begin
A life full of wonder
Renewed, like a child
Who enters the gate of a garden
And smiles.

Delight Yourself, No Matter What the CircumstancesPremium Content

Delight yourself in the Lord;
and He will give you the desires of your heart.
Commit your way to the Lord,
Trust also in Him,
and He will do it.
Psalm 37:4-5

This verse is embedded in a chapter which differs from the over all scope we find in the Book of Psalms, for it mentions nothing of prayer or praise. But it is all instruction; it's " Mesihil – a teaching Psalm."
