The Tension Brews

The Tension Brews

Undue stress
The rope tightens,
The cable taut
And minds swirl
With founded and unfounded thoughts
Where the Tension Brews
To boil and toil
And every little nod
Or question
Turns to offense~
Oh I’m sorry my Lord
For the tightness I bring
And I ask now
To release the tension;
Let loose your Grace
And allow for Hope and love
To breach once more
From the surface
For only then
Can Growth occur
Upon the Depths
Of your Beautiful Truth,
While the Tension Brewed
Gets released to dissipate
Away from the hearts
In need of release.

Bounce the Sun

Bounce the Sun

Giants rise to play
A solar system away
The sun taken
For a gentle game~
The bellow follows,
“Bounce the Sun”
Into a goal or not,
No matter
Black holes arise
Obstacles to avoid~
Pinball levers
Rise and Fall
Unto an axis
To settle the dust
From a Constellations’
Fun Park Festival
Where giants swirl and twirl
In skies so clear
Whirlpools form
Galactic Pinwheels
A motion surprise
Round and Round,
Further in onto our minds
To Bounce the Sun
And lighten the load
Of Gravitational Pulls
Away from the Beauty
Of Abba’s Heart.

Doodles Away

Doodles Away

All over the pave
The imagination moves
To sketch the thoughts
Of images seen
Eyes opened or closed~
Rest easy on the Mountain Ranges
The pines along the lake
And the Creatures
Never dreamt by others,
Yes Rest in such a place
For Doodles Away
Cannot mean one lacks attention,
Bu rather one longs
For stories never heard before~
Arise, Awaken
To the Beauty
In your own mind
And Heart
And Doodles Away
Speak louder still
Unto the structures
Once deemed impossible.

Moment by Moment

Moment by Moment

Moment by Moment
We traverse seven seas
Or pilgrimage through adversity
Unaware of the battles around,
Which try to wipe us out
For when Sons and Daughters
Lose sight of themselves
Then His Kingdom dims,
But when they come alive~
Oh the Beauty which explodes
To shine His Light
Into every dark corner
And rescue more
Of His Children~
Yes Moment by Moment
Draws us closer and closer
Unto the Depths
Of Abba’s treasured Heart
To give rise to Love,
To Joy and Grace
And the echoes
Ripple on for Eternity.

Blistered Hearts

Blistered Hearts

Rough Journeys,
Paths to follow
With the way
The world turns
Leads sometimes
To Blistered Hearts
From lost friends
And failure of an means
Cauterizes the openness
Once cherished~
Labyrinths in mire,
Depressive states
Along walks and runs
To get away from pain
And Blistered Hearts
Ache day and night
In hope of relief~
Where does the help come from?
Oh rise, rise gentle souls
For no matter the ache
Love rains down
To massage the hurt away
And bring redemption close
Again and again~
Hearts sigh for renewal comes
To heal the pain away.
~Selah~

In the Blink of an Eye

In the Blink of an Eye

All the  world can change
In the Blink of an Eye
When worlds smash
And collide in our pavements
For friends and loved ones
Struggle to breathe,
Hooked to machines
And we never let go,
While tears and brokenness
Manifest all around~
In the Blink of an Eye
Life fades,
But always Hope shall Blossom
With strength and Love renewed
Beauty in the possibility
Of newness and refreshment~
Oh Abba, Come!
In the Blink of an Eye
The Earth can shift
And our worth vibrate
To a higher level
Upon which Glory resonates,
To Heal broken hearts
And draw us closer,
Closer unto the King of Kings.
~Selah~

Watch the Ripples Grow

Watch the Ripples Grow

The Ink bleeds through
Red and Bold
Impregnated with Hope
The Depth of Possibility
Along Avenues traversed
Journeys throughout our lives
With Drips of Passion
In every teardrop~
Painted Horizons
Of every Hue
The backdrop of our souls
With every Mountain high
Every Valley low
And every beachside breeze
Breathes Strength anew
Into weary hearts
Aflame in fiery Beauty
Where Journeys converge
Of Brothers and Sisters
To make a difference
In their own lives
And the lives of all
They encounter~
Watch the ripples grow.

A Collective Sigh

A Collective Sigh

Back and Forth,
Up and Down
List to the side
Anchored at Sea
And in the Distance
The sun sets to shine
On the Hills
The land dry and dusty,
Yet alive with Possibility~
Let your laughs out
And the stress loose
For all around
Life blossoms
Even on the swells
We rock on,
The Light shines
Brighter and Brighter
And a collective sigh
Breathes out
While we Drift together
On a Journey
Into the Unknown~

A Son Walks In

A Son Walks In

Stories pulsate with fear
Lost in the mire
Alone and scared,
But please look around
The sun shines
And Hope rises
When given the chance
To open youreyes and heart
For Angels surround you~
Light encompasses you,
While the Father whispers
“My Son, My Friend,
I Am with you
And I Am for you!
Do NOT be afraid!
Do NOT let fear overwhelm you
For Life and Light I pour
Upon you, My Beloved!
Yes, allow me to come in
And the Light will shine
Bright into all aspects
Of your Life and story.
I Am for you,
Never against you!”
The Door opens
And a Son walks in
With a Proud Father
Who waits to Embrace Him.

Step In

Invisible Portals
Surround us
Step In!
Take the leap of Faith!
Let boldness rise
And Courage to pulsate
For on the other side
Arms, gentle and kind
Await to Embrace you~
Eyes of Fiery Passion
Twinkle with Love
And Hair whiter than snow
Flows in the gale force
For All around Him
Sing the many voices
Of His Angels
And the Cloud of Witnesses
To give Praise unto Him!
Step in
To the place where
Love overwhelms fear,
Grace and Joy overcome Death
And His Peace settles chaos
Of war-torn hearts
From the battles of life~
Evermore Invisible Portals
Await the march
Of Sons and Daughters
Awakened to their Identity,
Their Royalty and Inheritance
And the call echoes,
“Come to me!
Come to me
My Sons and Daughters,
I Am always in wait for you!
Awaken, Awaken
To me in you
And you in Me~”
Oh I step in
Through the Portal
Into His Presence,
His Heart a Waterfall
Of Love and Grace
And all my cares,
Worries and Fear
Wash away in His River~
His River of Grace.
Please, my brethren,
Step in
And take my hand.
~Selah~

Listen

Listen

Listen…
Listen to the crash of waves
On the beach shore,
To the laughter of kids at play,
Jack hammer, Wind chimes,
Gulls screech and trumpets blare
For all around us noises dance,
A raucous crescendo
To invisible orchestras
And our ears bristle
To the depths of melodies,
Of harmonies unforeseen
For the world moves, rustles
In order to play
The theme of Life in every scale~

Listen…
Listen to the wind in the valley
Through the hidden pass,
To the tears of broken hearts,
From construction sites to theme parks,
Zoos and open plains to music halls
The music races on all around,
Climbs up and down the mountains
Our mind reels from so much
To the details of wavelengths
Of the speed of the galaxies
For the Earth, universe spins and spins
With a force, a passion
Which sometimes overwhelms~

Listen…
Listen close
For in the turbulence
Of the noise and music
Comes a whisper on the wind,
A soft voice to cut
Through the clouds and madness,
“Son. Daughter. Friend.
I Love you. I adore you.
I cherish our time together
Even if you do not believe,
I can assure you
I believe in you and your potential~
Come, come away with me!

Yes Listen…
Listen close
For much do I wish to tell you,
My Beloved One,
Allow me to speak into the darkness,
The pain of past circumstances
And my Light shall wash your wounds.”
Oh listen close
The whispers come in a full tide
To cleanse the darkest nights
And enrich the noise with sweetness~
A new song, melody plays
On strings and drums of Heaven
Where Anthems of Joy
Resound through Eternity.
Listen Close…
~Selah~

Progress of Our Hearts

Progress of Our Hearts

Oh Lord
Penetrate the walls
Which stand
Sentinels in the night
To hold in our pain,
Our hurt and mistrust~
The madness we cling to
Instead of you
For without your work
In our hearts,
In our minds and souls
Then progress stays stunted
And stagnant~
Oh Lord
You rest in wait
For a sliver
Of a Glimmer
Of a Yes to your Call,
Then you cling to us
To jumpstart a snowball effect
Of Redemption and Restoration
Of new Growth
To launch the Oak
Of our souls
To heights unknown
With Progress of our Hearts
Into your Passionate Garden
The goal of your Agape.
~Selah~

A Rhythmic Discourse

A Rhythmic Discourse

Towers rise up
Worshipful stones
To give Praise
Unto Yahweh
For life exudes
Paramount explosions
Of Grace, Love,
Peace and Joy
And even if all I write
Stands random
On the pave,
Chalk strands in the wind,
My voice still shall rise
To give Glory
Glory to the One I adore~
A rhythmic discourse
On the Beauty
Of your Eyes,
Which gaze upon me
And beckon me closer,
Not with fear
But with Passion and Joy
For you long for me
Just as much as I…
As I long for you.

Still Yet to Come

Still Yet to Come

(for Henry Levis)

Journeys found,
Maybe some lost
On and through
Labyrinths examined,
While a heart
Ventures forth
Into territories never known
For the story coalesces
Along each new step
With new subplots
And climaxes
To blow the mind
A million miles
In every direction,
And yet a whisper
Always closes in,
“The best~
Still yet to come.”
So no matter the situation
Rest in Abba’s hands
For His Heart
Stays for you~Always
And the end of the Story
Remains~
Still Yet to Come.

Drip Drop Hope

Drip Drop Hope

(for Sarah Curling)

Closed off hoses
Or so it seems
For the flow
Comes in but a trickle
And all hope looks lost,
But even in the dark
Light filters through~
A Drip Drop of Hope
Lasts a lifetime,
One teardrop even
Can rest in the quiet
Of a thankful Heart
Where the darkest moments
Turn to golden opportunities
For Yahweh to appear~
Oh Drip Drop Hope
Pitter-Patters onto the Soul
To reawaken, re-enliven
The Beauty faded
Back to a vibrancy
To rival the greatest
Art pieces known to man~
Rest in such strength.
~Selah~

Fruitful Legacy

Fruitful Legacy

(for Kevin Curling)

A Bonanza for sure
Of stories told,
Old and new
The timeline full
Of a fruitful legacy
Throughout the eras
Witnessed~
Yesterday, today and tomorrow
For the Depth of hearts
In unison with the King
Goes further and further
Into the Well
Of His Goodness
And Extreme Love~
So a Fruitful Legacy
Branches in every direction
To grow and multiply
The Forest of Strength
And every Creature
Rejoices~Hallelujah!
Jump in again
The story never ends.

Sunflower Blossoms

Sunflower Blossoms

History, His Story
Rests in the seed
Planted for Love
To grow and grow~
Wild and Free
In the fields and Hearts
Of Imagination’s Dreams
Where a Sunflower Blossoms
Into Full Royalty~
Known and cared for
By the Gardener of Joy
To spread the Beauty
Of His unique Creation.

Released Legacies

Released Legacies

Grown to height,
Higher and higher
To shine ever more
And share the Truth~
Butterflies and Bees
Capture her Heart
To ferry Dreams
Into unknown territories
And spread her Joy
Throughout the fields
For now Pollen rests
In Good Soil~
A cycle, a circle
To love the world
Throughout Eternity.

Yellow Leis

Yellow Leis

Soft, silky
A Halo of Divinity
To attract the Eye
Into arrays of Beauty
Along the slow-motion Breath
In. Out. In and Out~
Throughout the Rays sought
Next to Pre-Dawn Twilight
Before the full Glamour
Of her Desires
Show the sun fresh beams
When smiles and laughter
Play the trumpets
Of how to Love
Again and Again.

~By: A.J. Wagoner

Leafy Covers

Leafy Covers

Reticent Green
Overhead and all around
Spread out
Into arrays of Grace
To give mention
To the catches of Dew
In one, two, three
Loops in the storm~
Ready to provide
A quilt of possibility
Along the membranes
To feed her Dreams,
Lofty Ambition
Along the fields to traverse.

~By: A.J. Wagoner

Growth Spurts

Growth Spurts
Uncertainty in storms~
Will the winds overwhelm?
Will floods drown?
No, for even in the darkness
Growth spurts occur
To give rise to Light
And Garden Beauty
For the butterflies and bees
To Dance on Rich Petals,
Resplendent in hues
Of choice colors
Along sunrises and sunsets
Throughout the days to go by
To tower in strength,
Hope and wisdom.

~By: A.J. Wagoner

Windmill Roots

Windmill Roots

Broad, deep
The tendrils stretchout
To anchor the depths
Within a good heart
Fraught with doubt
Hidden behind Faith~
The wind picks up,
But still Beauty waves
In the field
Back and forth,
Only to dig herself
Deeper and Deeper
Into the Goodness
Of Heaven’s Gardener.

~By: A.J. Wagoner

Sun Showers

Sun Showers
Cumulus Nimbus
Float through the air
Unassumed responses
To blustery days,
But even then the sun
Brightens the Earth,
While flowers follow
Her trajectory
And soak in the life-blood~
A watery course,
Which falls from the Blue
To moisten the ground
All around the Garden
Along venues of Love
Where Truth settles well.

~By: A.J. Wagoner

Tilled Soil

Tilled Soil

Soil once thought no good
Tended to and loved
To where Revival springs
Forth in radiant sunshine
And the richness of Heaven
Permeates the dirt
To provide nutrient Life~
Photosynthesis travels
Through tubes of Grace
And enliven the blades
Into canopies of Beauty,
Because churned Earth
Does more for everyone
Than any attended gardens.

~By: A.J. Wagoner

Thirsty Still

Thirsty Still

(for Michael Spence)

Years of Grace,
Of Love and Revelation
Yet the yearn of a Heart
Pulsates Louder
To want more
And more even now~
Yes, Thirsty Still
Cannot come close
To the ache of a son
Who longs for closeness
With His Beloved Abba,
But never fear
For His Presence Travels
Faster than the speed of Light
To engulf the space
Of His Son’s Heart
Where even in contentment
And wholeness
Together they stay
Thirsty Still
For one another.
