Joker’s Sting

Joker’s Sting

Fifty-two rambunctious ones
Throughout the seam
Within the night’s cry
And the one on the outside
Looks in
With uncertainty
For Joker’s Sting
Tries to take out the King
With the Jester’s camp
On the rise,
Yet the Queen
Protects the court
With One through Ten
A numbered ordeal~
All to say
The hidden door
Opens wide for you,
For me,
For us all
And the Kingdom
Sings Hallelujah
Within the stars’ Jubilee!

Hilltops

Hilltops

Up
and
Up
we climb the hilltops
to gaze upon
the horizon
of hearts
set afire
for
the Love
of the King
we follow
into the nations
to Love
and Love some more.

Melodies Rend the Air

Melodies Rend the Air

Heart-felt
Black and Ivory keys
Pressed down
For Melodies Rend the Air
To shine Light
On the dark nights
Of our souls
And…
And the atmosphere
Reverberates with Grace~
A rain onto broken hearts
To massage the pain away.

Nonsensical Realities

Nonsensical Realities

Imaginations go wild
to play jokes on the wind,
when rats turn to bats
or cats defend gnats
on the wind we soar
and the mind’s eye leaps
with jubilation
never lost
on translation’s lips
and the world gains
Nonsensical Realities
of made-up trips
Into the night sky~
so speak free,
let your tongue dance
and play pranks
on the pinkies you hold dear,
balance act necessary
along the trip of a lifetime
where the colors and hues
translucent to crystals
Of beached gems
and the treasure lost
Rejoices to pirate ditties~
Nonsensical Realities
Exist within us…
let yours roam free
and stories will breathe
a brand-new fire
never before seen,
so grab my hand
and come for a ride.

*Holds out hand*

Crowd Control

Crowd Control

All the masses
Circle and Circle
around the point,
One. Two. Three.
And the anthems we play
on the airwaves
of our hearts
reverberate louder
when the wind picks up
To Crowd Control
our thoughts and desires
of Peace and Grace
for one and all~
oh how the rhythm beats
to the center of our cores
and loosens the jambs
to doors long-lost in the night,
the jamboree plays louder
in hearts tuned
into the Unknown,
a Mystical Mysticism
Between Heaven and Earth~
our Crowd Control
tendencies whisper
contention to the free-flow
of our minds’ imagination…

Unicorns on plains
To bogs full of trolls
and Dragons still
Fly coast-to-coast
Within the left-and-right,
an aid to Dreams
gone wild and strong.

Amethyst Canyon

Amethyst Canyon

High above the plains,
Atop a rock face waterfall
With a dry bed behind
Lies Amethyst Canyon~
The trail to the shortest distance
To Silver Peak
And all throughout
The glory of Creation
Cries out loud
The Beauty of the landscape
Far from the laypeople
For only the adventurers dare
To traverse the snake
Up between mountain-scapes,
A testament to Courage
And Curiosity~
Yes, Amethyst Canyon
Holds the keys
To translucent purple,
The crystals of fate
To give rise to adventure
For everyone brave enough
To Journey in, through and up
To the summit of paths
Less traveled.

Gentle Presence

Gentle Presence

A walk through a land of mysticism,
Side-by-side with Beauty
Again~
And no matter who
Your heart squirms
With thoughts of Possibility,
Undone by her
Gentle Presence,
Her heartbeat of Tranquility
All the while certain
The Beauty would never
Look to the Beast
Of Passion
The same way~
A Gentle Presence
To reiterate
Her heart for her Abba.

A walk through a land of mysticism
And I Am lost
In I Am’s
Beauty.

What Do You Write?

What Do You Write?

What do you write
When words percolate
Throughout your mind,
A land free in space
With Galaxies unknown
And multiple Dreams
Cannot fathom
The placement of syllables
Written Down.

Oh What do you write
When lost in translation
The words glue
To silence
And no utterances come out?

Incomplete Completions
Transfigure the waves
Of sound~
Come the sirens
Loud and clear,
But what do you write?

Every single thought.

Beauty Rests in Joy

Beauty Rests in Joy

(for Kelly Clause)

Whether in rain or shine
A Smile penetrates the air
From a heart full of Love
Where simple Beauty
Rests in Joy~
Laughter echoes
Through galaxy after galaxy
One lightyear of sands
To go, over and over
For Rainbows glisten
After the storm
To give rise to hope
Of promises made
And Beauty Rests in Joy,
So let His Presence jump
His Daughter to the forefront
Of the waves of change
For the words spoken
From such a blossomed heart
Springs forth new life
Into the atmosphere~
Oh Beauty Rests in Joy
And His Daughter
Shines Radiant
In Grace and Truth
For all the world to see.

The Summit of Beauty

The Summit of Beauty

(for Kelly Duvoisin)

Salty Seas ebb and flow
In a life sold out
To the Kingdom of Joy
Where laughter ripples
Through Aqua Pools
Of Reticence and Glee~
Waves from the stones
Skipped across the sea
Rise Higher still
On the Horizon
Of Abba’s love
For His Daughter,
His Precious Princess
Along the Pinnacles of Grace,
The Summit of Beauty
In gentle eyes
Known for fiery Passion
Speaks to the nations
Hope and Possibility
All through the night skies
Where Constellations
Pool to give Praise
To the Creator of All
About The Summit of Beauty
His Daughter traverses
Day-in and Day-out.

Rock Face

Rock Face

(for Isaac Gonzalez)

The Pinnacle rises
High above,
But no fear exists
Within the Son of God
Ready for the challenge
To take on a Rock Face
Never before scaled
And in his heart
He will know
The King stays with him,
Even in the darkest nights~
The holds ready
For hand-over-hand
And foot-over-foot
Where a mighty son
Will climb higher and higher still
Unto Victory and Grace
Over every obstacle and crag
Ready to thwart Progress~
The Rock Face leers above
But Courage Pulsates
Through his veins
And every muscle flexes
In anticipation
For Victory stays guaranteed
With the King at hand.

My Precious Daughter

My Precious Daughter

(for Olivia Turner)

A Sunflower follows the ‘Son’
Through clear and cloudy days
Struggles may arise,
But still she cleaves to Him;
Stress may mount up,
And yet she stays consistent~
Beautiful and Calm
Her father’s daughter
No matter what
And on the crash of waves,
On the wind over the sea
Simple words echo
From her Daddy and her dad,
“My Precious Daughter
I Am so in love with you!
I Am so proud of you
For the woman you’ve become,
The strong, resilient tower
Of Faith and Peace
For all to gaze upon
And gain comfort from~
Well done, my Daughter
For the history and legacy
You leave in your wake!
I Am so in love with you,
My Precious Flower Blossom,
The Apple of my Eye
And together we shall love the world
Unto Grace and Freedom.”
A Sunflower follows the ‘Son’,
Her Fathers smile
Hand-in-Hand in the Throne Room
And beam with satisfaction,
With Love and Pride,
Over one who follows
Her heart so well
Within the Freedom of Victory,
The Future stands Ready
Bright and Full for Kingdom Breath.

Twinkles of Starlight

Twinkles of Starlight

(for Molly Aigner)

The sun sets with explosions
Of spectrums and hues
Never before seen,
While the Moon rises
To new heights and tides
With Twinkles of Starlight
All around to tell a story
About a Beautiful Maiden,
A Daughter of the King
Who gazes upon the world
With new, fresh Paradigms
Full of Love, Grace and Peace~
Oh how the constellations
Play in unison their song
Of History gone by,
Yet still relevant today
And Dreams once Lost
Birth again into new Galaxies
Ripe and Full of Passion~
The Twinkles of Starlight
Cycle across the night sky,
An atmosphere of Determination
To witness the hearts’ desires
To arise in the East
With the Son’s ascent.

In Case You Don’t know

In Case You Don’t Know

(for Mothers Everywhere)

Sometimes in life
Things can get hectic,
Add children to the mix
And the world spins volatile
With tears, laughter and spit-up
All over the favorite blouse
So words seem left unsaid
For the world can twist
Our best designs
Into sullen and hate-filled battles~
All to announce, Mothers,
In Case You Don’t Know
You stand Loved by your kids,
Whether they speak such words
Or Not,
Please know~
You have what it takes
To be a Mother;
You have what it takes
To love your children
And In Case You Don’t Know~
Thank You!
Thank You for All you do,
For your heard work,
For your Love even
In the hard times
And for your Perseverance
With every matter at hand.
Thank You to all Mothers!
You stand tall,
The forerunners to life.

Unified Fronts

Unified Fronts

Whirlwind Kaleidoscope
Collides cloud cover
With a mix of hearts
Set to unite
World changers on a path
Of Destiny
Where Unified Fronts
Between new friends
Form relationships
Of sons and daughters Together~
The episodes of distance
Cannot compare
To the bonds created
Between Family
Met for the first time,
The whispers echo
Through Eternity
And Abba smiles Deep
When in Unified Fronts
His children walk
Hand-in-Hand
And Heart-to-Heart
In utmost unity.

Wings and Seeds

Wings and Seeds

Into the unknown
To meet strange people~
One with a wild mane
And fiery yet gentle eyes,
The other a ray of sunshine
A blossom of Passion and Love
To where both speak
To young cubs~
Now, the Love of Creation
Blooms Brilliant
Where they spread their wings
To fly in the face
Of adversity
And seeds now planted
In hearts of Good Soil
Begins to grow
Freshness falls
A gentle Rain
For Wings and Seeds
Only tell a portion
Of the Story,
His Story, History
And the Beauty of Wings and Seeds
Gives rise to the Love
Deep within their core
To Breathe a Fire of Sunshine
Into the darkest nights.

Highways

Highways

Static metal conveyor belts
Transport their metal boxes
Full of time capsules
Reticent with stories
Of years gone by
And destinations
Criss-cross through and through
To history’s timelines
For each person~
Simple Dots
Line up to declare
The Truth inherent to all
For we all Long
Or Pine over
Chances and moments
To travel distances
And experiences
Where the capsules open
Unto hearts found
Along the Journeys traversed.

And the Depths of Love
Reaches the bottoms
Of every Sea~
Split Risen Power
Resurrects
Dreams Forgotten,
Passions and Desires enlivened
For New Paradigms
And Realms
Through fresh waves~

Circle her and her dance
Leads to Greater Breakthrough.

Double Sails

Winds pick up
Gale force even,
But still the ship steady
For Double Sails
Raised to Heaven
Propels forward
Unto Destiny,
Unto Glory
And Greater Glory yet
When the Heart sings Praises~
Oh the clouds whip by
And the ship cuts through
The swells of the Sea
In such a way
To allow for flight
With Creation in Tow;
The Double Sails
Of Blessed Canvas
To guide the Way
Forevermore.
