Winter's EmbraceYour starkness enshrouds me,
I am embraced by your frigidness,
it moves me in strange, mystifying
inexplicable ways. I am fascinated
by your brittleness, because it seems
at moments so easy to shatter,
and yet you are so inpenetrateable.
Your beauty remains unfathomable,
sublime, terrifying, unyielding, and unchanging,
immortal, and yet vanishing, for all too soon
I might watch you begin to fade away before my
very eyes, but if I wanted, like a wayward bird
I could follow you across continents, or simply
wait through the passages of time.
But you will always be so utterly
unattainable, or perhaps you could
carry me with you, you could hold me
within your stoic bareness, you know
the words to whisper that lulls one
into the everlasting sleep, and I would
be preserved beneath your frostbitten touch,
I am raptured by your cruel, and yet strangely
Lost On Your SeasI become the mad sailor
attempting to navigate your tempestuous seas,
at times so frightening and awe inspiring,
I feel myself utterly alone,
and your voice becomes a sirens song
so alluring, while I gaze into your dark waters,
they appear silken
and in these moments I want nothing more
than to give myself up to it
to drown myself
and feel your voluminous
surround me completely,
you could quiet the voices within my mind,
sing me lullaby's to sleep,
and slowly the world would start to vanish,
and there would be only you,
how the stars dance across
your midnight surface,
somewhere inside I know
it must all be a test,
and I must learn how to ride your winds,
to move in rhythm with your ebbs and flows
without surrendering to your maelstroms,
I will steer around the dangers
which lie hidden in your murky depths,
without becoming blind
to your moments of startling,
Moments of Intense BrevityDo you know the depth
of my need for you,
in quiet moments
it comes upon me like a
shaking my foundations,
stealing away my breath,
even from miles away
I can feel the beating of your heart
as surely as I feel my own.
Broken Hearts and Mended WaysAnd I can feel your pain
in my blood as if it were my own
oh how I hate to think of you
(Can we ever come back home
I don't want you to be lost
even though you know I cannot
seem find my own way through.
Can ever enough be said
to erase all the things
Somehow I know you would
only laugh at my regrets
in comparison to all the things
you ever did so long ago.
(I know it's true
for a while we lived lives of our own)
What does it matter
what happened during those days
when we were both only dead
souls wandering through life,
searching for something warm and
Now here we are and this is hardly the end,
and I wish I could take away
all the things the world has done
(But then I wonder
what would be left?)
Because somehow all this ugliness
has only made you so
These are the moments
I feel so helpless and unworthy
because what can I ever say,
what can I ever do
to make amends for all the wrong
you have suffered
The Girl and the WolfThe girl in red walked these paths
uncharted and unknown
with such an innocent guile
but inwardly she smiled
"Whose woods these are I think I know"
she spoke with a flutter of breath
upon the crisp morning air.
"Than more the fool are you"
the voice from unknown shadows spoke,
while the wolf grinned his toothy smile,
she twirled around, her face flush,
her eyes aglitter,
but it was not fear which stirred
within her young robin's breast
as her eyes befell upon the beast
who slinked from the shadows
in silent stealth contemplating
this delicious morsel, who stood
atremble, and yet so daring before him,
"I have lost my way"
she said but there seemed a coy
curl of her lips and flick of her lash
while unabashed she fixed her gaze upon him,
"And I will be happy but to lead you farther astray"
said he, and his voice had the allure
of the darkest depths, and deepest mysteries,
she was more than lost,
and there was no turning back,
with shocking determination she laid her hand
upon his b
Soul MatesBetween dream and moon tides,
The light weaves a new day.
A first glimmer lights the darkness,
Where even still a shadow lay.
For ages swings a song
From star guardians into the world
And first diamonds glitter,
Where luminosity falls on the water.
The young morning is still hesitating,
Promising us hardly the return.
Still the night wraps up the life
And silently breathes the great sea.
Then … finally, the golden time calls.
Water marries to the light.
And shining our heart sways
Where sunshine breaks through waves.
The wind carries my soul
On its wings away from here
To green valleys, ocean lights,
To blue lakes, to you.
You are the life, you are the dream.
You are my soul and my light.
And when the day draws to a close again,
I will not forget you.
God My Constant CompanionPain is constant
Sickness is normal
Joy and happiness a burden
Ordeal of becoming old
Life became a misery
Through the pain and suffering I became closer to God
My thirst for His knowledge grows
My thoughts revolve around God and me
I fear not because God is with me
Only God, my constant companion, understands my plight
Only God comforts me with love,
knowledge and understanding
Only God, through Jesus’ blood sacrifice,
can free my soul and give me eternal peace
I praise God for all the blessings He has given me
Thank You GOD for the love You have given me

BetterPraises and prayers go out to You
Everything is Yours and has been Yours
From the heavens where Your throne stands on to the Earth below
You reign all, and yet You are better than all
You are better than all
Better than Your devoted servants to the animals of the world
Better than the Earth You made to the dust You used to bring life
Better than everything that You have made; the ultimate better
The only perfect and You will always exceed beyond our expectations
You exceed in the heavens beyond, and yet You can recreate from the ashes of hopelessness
You can move the mountains and make rivers flow
You can slip open the skies, and yet love with a loving heart
You are better than all
Better than the smartest men in the world with Your perfect wisdom
You know how to softly break us and yet still love
You know everything from the smallest creature to the depths of the human heart
You are better than all
You have all authority and sit on a throne of righteousness
You loved the sinners and b
THE HAUNTINGVeils of sadness seemed so becoming
beckoning and crying for needs which appeared to be running
to rivers of hopes gone astray
pooling at shores of her shallow bay
quelled hatreds there were broiling
beneath still waters slathering like an oiling
to his outstretched arms and into his pores as the liquid leaked
till he was saturated with her summer fragrance that almost reeked
of despair and the thoughts that washed up there
and in his veins pulsed a sense of her eyes,
of her hair...
in his mind he'd heard her sighs,
knowing not who she was as he lingered at those shores
but sensing that these willows had once witnessed much more
no one had been present to ease that horror
but perhaps the screams of a heart bleeding through him into the moist
had led her to know that to someone she had a voice
had led her to move beyond this place
Wings Of ChangeProgress marched upon them,
New weapons and new skills,
And so a boy, terrified, ran
To keep away their ills.
To a far off city,
He slowly found his way,
When lanterns like stars guided him
Unto a brand new day.
On the night he met her,
He told her of the change,
For he felt he was drowning
And she’d keep things the same.
She said she would not help him,
For to obstruct all progress was
To never learn to fly.
But drowning he still was,
In changes uncontrolled,
Until some fins and gills he grew
And swam into the gold.
AlgizHer hair looked dark and tangled like tree branches as she stood at the moonlit clearing.
The creatures in the ground sang poems carved in runes in the bark of the evergreen pines.
The trees on the hills were adorned with Orion and her face was obscured by a veil of shadows.
She felt the bedrock crackle as it embraced the fire within the planet traveling in space.
Saplings quivered in the gale while the clear greys and evening blues melted together.
Shooting stars like sinking ships of light drew evanescent lines over the treetops.
An elk with the Pleiades in its eyes came from the woods as it heard her whisper.
It crossed frosty sedges with the shining streams of prayers hanging from its horns.
It wandered the cold earth and found buried sadness with every step of its hooves.
The uprooted human followed invisible tracks and sought answers in the soil.
Down on her knees on the frozen ground, her breath turned into clouds of vapor.
The Moon and the trees studied her in the embrace of th
FreefallingI took the final step, away from Heaven
Leaped off the edge, close to the pearly gates
Salvation isn't for me, but I will know freedom
As I plunge feet first into the fire
No one can save me, I've made my choice
Breathless, I gaze at the beauty below me
For the first time I can feel some sort of happiness
No more pain, no regrets, a feeling of belonging
Knowing it will end only makes me savour it more
The sensation of total 'aloneness', without a need to share
Detached from everything, while feeling one with the world
Total enlightenment, light above and fire below
I close my eyes, ready to face my destiny
Trapped inside the flames for all eternity,
But I don't care, I will endure the hardships
Nothing can hurt me, because I ceased to exist
Bring the RainI run, I fight, I lived and I died
For the love of this girl
My whole world
Yet I run far away off to my deep dark days
When I was something truly different
As I was a soldier, a beast
Fighting as my heart bleeds
Waiting for the day
When all the pain will fade away
Far out of sight
As I come to know the light
No longer fighting for me
But for my father and king
The cause that brought the rain
To wash away all within my past
And this broken heart at last
After so many days too far away
From the light that washed the night away
Jesus MeisiahA long time ago, there was a family.
A newborn baby boy given as a gift.
Not only to his mother, Virgin Mary,
But to the world
His name was Jesus
Jesus lived and died for us
He was always kind and forgiving
He performed miracles
He raised the dead to life
He healed the sick and crippled
And said it was all in the power of God the Father
Yet, he was persecuted and so were his followers
And in the end,
He died on the Cross
But, he rose again!
Jesus lives with God as his son
And he took away our sins as well
So, we know he will always love us
So if we believe in him
We may be saved in his name
If you wish to give your life to Christ, say with me this prayer:
God, please forgive me for all that I’ve done. I have sinned against you, but now I wish for you to be back in control. Please Lord, let me love others like you have loved me, and let me show them your mercy.
13-DeathHe reaps the fields
of the harvest
as Autumn light descends
bittersweet the beauty.
Shed your tears
for what has passed
the new dawn.
Invite Him to clear
what withers beneath
gives you leave to sow
Turn not from
the transitional phases
of your life
as leaves brown
blossoms soon will emerge.
Take His hand
not cruel nor unkind.
every second dies
and a new one born.
Seek beauty in
the ever changing moments
always within his shadow
bet it not ominous.
Feed old mementos
to the fire
and scatter ashes
in the wind.
Stand to face
a new chapter
the first flower in spring.
Keep in Touch!
