WHO WILL CARRY THE LIGHT… a Christian poem

black and red sports bike

When the wind stops blowing

And darkness fills the air

Who will carry the light

***

When your heart is broken

And your way is lost

Who will carry the light

***

When your anchor loses purchase

And your mooring is gone

Who will carry the light

***

When your father has passed

And your mother is estranged

Who will carry the light

***

When you drop to your knees

And you pray straight from your heart

Jesus will carry the light

A DARKER SIDE OF HOLLOW… a dark poem

brown snake

A darker side of hollow

Whispers in your ear

“I can make you happy…

Come, no need to fear!”

A prickling on your neckline

As your stomach fills with butterflies

“Is this the way that I should go?

Or is it all just lies?”

That cry of desperation

Was answered in a beat

And now the time has come for you

To go

Or to retreat

Within this world of madness

Too many empty souls

Take to the streets and kill each other

And pretend it makes them whole

So, be careful with your questions

Have faith and tow the line

Build bridges, not deeper chasms

Beacause darkness has the time

WISDOM OF THE WINDS… a poem

silhouette of man standing on sand

When the wind comes whispering

But my heart’s out of reach

Who am I

Can I deny

The lessons it could teach

Unwavering, its determination

To do what it must do

No obstacle is too great

Breathe in a breath or two

Step back and take a look again

In myself find belief

For tomorrows on the horizon

When my time comes to teach

TSK, TSK… a poem

Do as I say

Not as I do

How’d that work out

Tsk, tsk…

They’ll never notice

They’re too rich to care

I guess they did

Tsk, tsk…

Just a quick stop

Come on, have a peak

Too close to the edge

Tsk, tsk…

This too shall pass

Stay home and stay well

Why didn’t you listen

Tsk, tsk…

WILL… a poem

When the momentum shifts

You’ve no one to blame

Take stock in yourself

And try to refrain

From saying words

You’ll surely regret

The clock keeps on ticking

On this, you can bet

Kill them with kindness

Or just smile and nod

Keep your distance from meanness

Don’t be a fraud

For when this time passes

Again, as it will

You can look in the mirror

And smile at God’s will

selective focus photography of man's reflection on a broken mirror

BLUE MOON… an imaginative poem

Kiss the blue moon before you go

Cast out to the stars in wonder

Aires and Taurus dance with delight

Where no hills roll with the thunder

Imagination, a universe full

In the inquisitive mind of a child

Heavenly bodies in Milky Way flight

Ride on astral comets, beguiled

milky way during night time

Such is the life, possibilities flare

As bright as Earth’s only sun

Deep in the reach of a curious mind

Can we be the Celestial one
