Clash of Two Kingdoms

Clash of Two Kingdoms

A million miles away
From one another,
Yet in each other’s face
What a place
For a Clash of Two Kingdoms
To Crash and Break on the Shores~
Fear & Love hand-to-hand,
Freedom & Control all gloves off,
Light & dark ebb & flow~
Grenades explode
Eardrums rattle, shatter
Shame, guilt, hate try to overcome,
But in the Clash of Two Kingdoms
Peace gives no quarter to war,
Joy shares not the limelight
With Depression,
And Grace shines Brighter still
For the Kingdom of Life
Already won against Death
When the Lamb slain
Walked resurrected out of His grave!
Yes a Clash of Two Kingdoms occurs
But remember~
With Love no fear exists,
With Freedom control never needed,
With Light Darkness Fades
For His Kingdom Reigns
Love, Freedom, Light
Resound Forevermore!
Selah

An Apology, Confession

An Apology, Confession

Dearest Readers,

    I come before you with words in hands, a quill of ink and not a pen, for I must issue an apology of sorts. I’m all out of sorts, contorts the dawn into night when words forgotten spring to life. You see, for the past ten months I have been in the middle-of-no-where Texas, a houseparent to kids with no one else to love them. I enjoyed the mess out of every minute, even if terms left were not so great, yet in each day to pass, a sunrise to sunset surmise of words I thought of, words I longed to write, I stayed silent and kept the pen in my pocket. Locket to my rocket of perpetual dreams I silenced my voice for exhaustion extremes and I felt the drain of Life spill through the recesses of my own cracks. A vessel, broken and bruised, I let days, weeks, months pass with not too many words shared.

    ‘Poetics’ called out to me time and time again, yet I gave a deaf ear and let words splay upon the rocks forgotten. I made excuses, however valid, to not carve out the time for the joy in my heart lies in the written rhyme and poetry time. I let so much go, instead of the reign in to cling to all to shine light into the darkness. In such a way, darkness overwhelmed me at times to where I became cynical to all around me. A shame. A pity. A downright lie!

    I am who I am and I shall not slink back again! I hold the Joy of the Father in my soul! I cleave to the breath of His lungs, which provide Life evermore and no matter my steps, no matter where I go I shall bring Him with me and change all around me! I am His Prince, a part of His Royal Lineage! Christ afforded me such a line. Beauty Full of Love and Light!!

    Either way, dear readers, I come to offer an apology, a confession of sorts to tell you I am sorry for the silence. I am sorry for the moments when poetry trickled to a standstill behind the dam of my own fear. Fear of what could happen if my voice grew louder and still fear of what all meant if my voice grew still. The chill in the air took the night be surprise at times and even in those moments when rhymes flowed free verse in spoken word glee, I did not believe. Did such words flow from me?

    I write a letter, yet a poem to all of you my readers. Do you see the lines, the crafted time when I do rhyme? Does not matter. For I am who He calls me to be and I Rest in Him. A Trust I can see. Even if all my senses deny the Truth, I know, oh I know, He stands within reach and within me. I will not hide who I am any longer, but will craft the words which need to be said or told in any form I choose for I am the one who holds the keys. Jingle Jingle at my waist. I pick up His pen once more and Inspiration flows through me!

    Thank you for your readership and the times you have encouraged me! I hope to write more and share each line with you all. I wonder where He will take us. Middle-Earth? Pandora? Narnia? Oh one can dream, but I seem to know the destination. Into our hearts forevermore with His Love and Grace free of charge! A Water course of perpetual Light to reflect, mirror His Brilliant Universe in a single Pattern. I hope you forgive me for the silence and will join again on a wild ride? Thank you again!

              Love eternal,
               ~A.J. Wagoner

An Aisle of Dreams

An Aisle of Dreams

Down an Aisle of Dreams
A corridor of Fragrance
And a Lion, an Isle of Dance
with the Spray Cap
Over my Lighthouse
Of stone capped columns
Direction splintered
In the Dreamscape of Fireflies
At Play in the Night
Spirit Awakens, sunrise hues
Clouds Advance, Explode~
Daisy in the Rain
Down His Aisle of Dreams
Lit Candle flickers in the Cellar
Drink Deep
His waves breed Unity
Over every Expanse
Oceans Roar in Golden Circles
And Beauty rests in the drops,
The drips, Life escalates
One step at a time
Eyes on wings, Butterfly flight
Symmetry in petals,
Blossom Truth, Grace.

An Aisle of Dreams
Tranquility in the pool
Stones shine, glisten
In the backdrop of orange
His chair to read awaits
To hear the stories of Epistles
Within their journey’s Canoes
Sands of Impressions
Glow Fluorescent Glow~
The Mud packed Earth
Tells an enchantment of old
Conjoined hearts bubble to surface
His Aisle of Dreams
Soar with Fresh winds
On the wings of an Eagle
Fish in talons, canvas bound
White-wash, she hangs in suspense
Of the story to unfold
In the Hold of One
Who He blends colors
Between clips of paper~
An Umbrella, Beehive glance
To the sounds, smells of Heaven
Down Our Aisle of Dreams.

Passionate Lovers

Passionate Lovers

(for my family in Mexico)

Español drips from their tongues
Love, Love, Mi Amor
I don’t understand,
But the Spirit within
Demands Attention
For their hearts and eyes
Reflect the One,
The One true King
And every syllable spoken
Contains the Heartbeat of Heaven,
Aye, Passionate Lovers Glow~
Glow with the Essence
Of His Presence,
His Joyous Glory Radiates,
While they make history
Of His Kingdom Story!
Español drips from their tongues
Love, Love, Mi Amor
My Heart hears, knows
The Depths of Heaven
In every one of His
Passionate Lovers.

An Open Book

An Open Book

I’m an open book,
A Poem
Of Meter & Rhyme
For I got Nothin’ to hide
Nothin’ to lose
I belong to the King
The King of Kings
And my heart sings
‘Holy, Holy, Holy
Gloria de Dios!’
Open Pages, Open Stories,
Take & Read
Plant the Seeds
Of Love, Life, and Laughter
For I got Nothin’ to hide
Nothin’ to lose
I belong to the King
The King of Kings
And my heart sings,
‘Santo, Santo, Santo
Glory of God!’
Hallelujah!

Hear My Roar

Hear My Roar

A soft bellow hidden
In the Rind,
Hidden in the night
Fear and passiveness clasp hard,
Yet Light infuses through me,
His Whisper comes
“Here stands my Son ~ Hear Him!”
A fire burns deep inside
No where to hide,
The light shines bright
New sight flame Anew
And the heat rises
In my heart, my soul,
A smolder and burn
Never felt before
And The Crash,
The Crescendo,
Takes rise deep and deeper in me~
Bubbles Forth to a ROAR
“Light, Love break out NOW
And take over the darkness night
For ALL stand set Free
Forevermore!
Grace and Freedom Reigns!”

Blow Me Away

Blow Me Away

Abba, King, Blow me Away~
The chaff on the wind,
The Kites in the air~
Blow me Away
With your Love,
Your Grace and your Truth
Oh Blow me Away
Take my heart in your hands
Mighty Potter
For I stand clay to mold
And I Am your Creation,
Creative Expression
Of you my Papa King!
Yes Blow me Away
With your Presence,
Your Essence
Swirls and swirls Atmospheres Shift
And Life and Love Pour Evermore
My little bowl overflows
With ALL of You~
Blow me Away
On your Winds of Love.

The Pen Drops

The Pen Drops

The Pin Drops
    The sound echoes
         Reverberates
And ripples course
    Through the air
         With a Presence,
    With a Presence of mind
To share the stories of Silence.

The Pen Drops
    The ink echoes
         Reverberates
And ripples course
    Through the air
         Through History
    With a Presence,
         With a Presence of mind
    To share the stories of us all.

The Pin…
    The Pen…
  Drops, echoes, Reverberates
And silence Hears His Whispers
    “I Am still with you.
         Experience my ripples
               Within, around you.”

The Ink Drops
    Painted stories echo
         Reverberate True
    And ripples course free
Throughout His Tapestry’s threads
    With His Presence,
         With His Presence of mind
    To shine the stories of His Love.

With the Nations

With the Nations

My heart lies with the Nations
I want to see each one,
Meet the people
And experience the culture,
Along the way to write
Write Poetic cues
To bless the nations
And bring Light to the world~
Goodness, Love, Laughter
So much Joy
Lies within the smiles
Of every heart awakened
To their truest selves.
Yes, my heart rests with the Nations
And I breathe His Name
Over Each and Every One.
Selah.

I Rest in Him (McKinney Falls)

I Rest in Him
(McKinney Falls)

Limestone Shelf
Rock face
Breeze across my cheeks
And I know You Rest
Here, yes Here
In the Creek Falls
Rush of Water
Resounds
And even in the wake of floods
Beauty Speaks
Kingdom Creation
The Rocks cry out
“Holy, Holy, Holy!”
Limestone Shelf
And I Rest in Him
Shaba Glory
Breathe. Drink.
Love Explodes Anew.

Flavor of Grace

Flavor of Grace

Flavor of Grace flows from my life
Frankincense Essence Rises
Faith Cup overflows
And Inspiration Spills over~
Butterfly Ballet
To the Symphony Chorus
Of Life, Love, Laughter
Lights and colors
Flash Alive All around
And All of me tingles!
Oh Flavor of Grace flows from my life
Frankincense Essence Rises
Faith Cup overflows
And the Tapestry awakens~
Mountains, valleys, Rivers, seas
Dance in thread
Our Lives, Love, Laughter,
Lights and colors
Stream Forth more and more
And all of me declares,
“Hallelujah! Holy, Holy, Holy!
My King, My Love,
Let your sweet Aroma Arise
All the more a Flavor of Grace!”

Planted (in Austin)

Planted (in Austin)

Whether forever or not,
I stand Planted (in Austin),
A realization to throw me off
For His words resonate
Deep within my chest,
“Take heart and extend your roots
For (in Austin) I place you
Even from a distance
To learn, to grow,
To sway in my breezes
And allow my hand to prune you!
Breathe in More,
Dig deeper and deeper
For the places to go will need support
And the proper nutrients to boot,
So Planed (in Austin) you stand~
Now do not hold back any longer
Your light must Shine!”
Yes, I Am Planted (in Austin)
My home, my own, my Precious~
Arise, Awaken dear city
For weirder days lie ahead,
While the King Plants (in Austin).

Diesel Kites

Diesel Kites

(for Bill and Irene Rhinehart)

Kites take the wind
Careless flight in the skies
To ever go higher and higher
For Diesel Power enriches their canvas
A Fragrant aroma deep inside
An extra premium push
Of a Pursuit From Father~
Yes, Diesel Kites take flight
When Papa holds the strings
And sprints over the Earth
To allow all to hear their worth,
Princes and Princesses!
Oh how His two shine in the sky,
His two Precious Kites,
Who know themselves and Him beyond all
And Fly above every roof~
A launch pad for all they encounter
Oh gentle breeze, Spirit Love,
Breathe ever more, ever more,
For your two Diesel Kites.

Through Fields of Daisies

Through Fields of Daisies
(A Tribute to May)

(for Kelsey Sage)

Four Paws, Gentle Eyes
Always Friends
The Best of the Best
To One and All~
Most important to her Mama
Never without a playful Leap,
Come let’s jaunt to the River
Her gait bespoke Grace
Her bark, Love
Even after the horses!
May, Oh May,
A friend of friends
If ever one could be,
If ever you could see!!
Laughter in the growl,
Joy in the wag of her tail
And a heart for her Kelsey
One could NEVER deny!
I Listen close ~ her bark now
Resides in the Anthem of Heaven
For I gaze upon May in stride
Through Fields of Daisies
Beside the King of Kings
And the Deer she loves to chase!
She stops and looks at me,
Then at our Beloved,
And He sings to my heart,
“May thanks you for your love,
She will await her Mama with me!
Do not fret for we will run
And play amongst the stars!”
Four Paws, Gentle Eyes
Always Friends
The Best of the Best
Now with Jehovah and runs
Through Fields of Daisies!
Selah.

An About Face

An About Face

(for Stacey Rice)

An Infinite turn
Circle wide
Round and Round
Into His Embrace
Of Grace
And Life blossoms anew,
While the page turns
The Quill Fills once more
Fresh ink for each mark
Line and dotted ‘I’~
Eye-to-eye His Gentle Gaze
Upon the story written,
“More, more, more and more
The Epic not over,
Much more to come
And Favor Explodes all the more
Forever and ever,
Rest in Me now
I’ve got you
And Life blossoms anew!”
An About Face
Into His Embrace
Of Grace
Sweet, sweet Aroma of Love
Arise. Shine!

Cut the Tendrils

Cut the Tendrils

Cut the tendrils
No longer attached
Free, set Free
For you see me
And you ran after my heart
From the very start!
Oh how You cut the tendrils
My hand the scissors
Passionate Embrace
You hug closer still
And I never dream to let go
Of you and your Warmth~
Fiery Fire Furnace Freedom!!
We cut the tendrils
And you lead me Forth
With Full Knowledge of all my worth
I drip all of me into your arms,
Let loose from Darkness’s Charms
Intimate Intimacy
For You stand All I see.
Selah.

Into the Fray

Into the Fray

The Deepest parts of my hear
Stands a Door
Crowded and covered in webs,
Guarded by a fearsome spider.
Oh locked away how do I fight?
Restfulness settles in!
The King of Kings looks into my Hazels,
“Friend, Warrior, let us go!
The clock dings NOW
And your hidden door shall open!
Pick up your Ax,
Your shield,
For we will go together!”

Double-headed Ax in hand,
Shield in another
With the Lion of Judah by my side
I charge into the Depths~
The Depths of my heart
To clean all out
And uncover the Door
To open Newness!
Life, Power, Truth
Hallelujah the Battlecry!!

HALLELUJAH!!!!!!!!
Into the Fray
I run beside my Beloved,
My Banner and Shield~
Clink. Slash. AGGHHH!!
Muscles tear in tension of the fight,
Eight legs to dodge
Fangs and stinger too,
Venom drips all around!
I…I sweat and bleed
Deep in the Process of battle,
But I never back down,
Never give up!

Into the Fray
And with the Light of All
I vanquish the creepy foe~
Inhale deep breaths, I crouch next to Him,
The He lifts me up,
“Well done! Let us now clear the door!”
We burn away the webs,
Gaze at the Cedar Door
And the knob we turn
To Enter Into the Fray of Love.

My Passionate Plea

Passionate Plea

My Passionate Plea
O Father Rise
Take flight and carry me!
Don’t you see!
I need you more and more,
Even when I hold ALL of You
Deep within my chest!
My Passionate Plea
O Abba Surprise
Take my hand and Run with me!
Hear oh Lord!
My voice I sing to you
A Praise Storm Supreme
From the Depths of my Rest!
Life illuminates from your every breath
A Creation Evolution of Processes to Dream
Where all of birth never ends with death
And hand-in-hand we journey to galaxies
You know Precious King
My Passionate Plea
From under your wing in our Glorious Nest!
Yes, my Passionate Plea
To see, hear, experience all of you
In new paths, ways, along your trees~
All to Glorify your Name
Life, Love, Grace explodes
Joyous Raucous in every moment
For in You I stay blessed!
My Passionate Plea
O Lord come unto me
More and More,
Again and again
I ride your waves of Grace,
Journey Deeper into You
And rest my head on your blessed chest!

Down to Earth

Down to Earth

Shaky Fall in the Climb
In-between Clouds
A blanket below
And a comforter above,
Wheels poised for Cement
Out the Porthole
Ground closes in
Flaps up, speed declines,
Set to return to life
And He whispers again,
“I Love you, Son!
Gentle now and journey forward
For my plans for you
Shall come to pass~
We will grow closer still
And no one can separate us.
I hold you in my hands,
I never let go
For to you I cleave
Passionate Please
And our Love sends Fireworks
Of Grace and Truth!”

~By: A.J. Wagoner

Patience Awaits

Patience Awaits

Patience awaits
Drawn out storyboard
The In-between breaths
Of Epic proportions
Echo throughout Legend,
Myths alive
Swirl in unison
To point hound dog howls
Towards the Truth,
The Kingdom Sobriety
Of Spirit Drinks,
While Joy exuberance
Overwhelms ALL around~
Yes, Patience awaits
To when hearts align
With Abba’s decree
And I sit gentle
Hand-in-hand
With Destiny.

~By: A.J. Wagoner

Slow Descent

Slow Descent

An Ascent into Agape’s Arms,
Hear His heartbeat
Drum bass Louder still
A Love for you and me
To draw us closer and closer,
While He works to cut away
The parts of us, which hinder Grace
And we make a Slow Descent
Further more into His bosom~
To lay our heads on His chest
Feel the rise and fall
Of His Gentle Breath
And experience Him
In All new ways!
A Slow Descent
From our Padded heights
To look Him in the face
Eye-to-Eye, Perfect Blues
Coalesce with Galaxies of Love,
A honeyed adventure
Into the Depths of Heaven’s Heart.
Slow Descent
For Heaven’s Sake
To witness Truth again~
Hallelujah Love Resounds!

~By: A.J. Wagoner

Fasten Seat Belts

Fasten Seat Belts

Fasten Seat Belts
Prepare for a wild ride
Takeoff a little rough~
Gruff the sound,
My ears need to POP!
Slow acceleration
Faster Now, again and again
Forget the Salida
I Rise to the occasion
The whisper of liftoff,
“I carry you now
Never Fear for rhythms of Grace
Flood the mind,
Gentle waves
To solidify Life and Love
Within the Night’s Light
Hallowed Stars Glimmer,
So Fasten Seat Belts
Our ride to Heaven’s Realm
Shall stand a Glorious One!”
Fasten Seat Belts Indeed
For the Throne Room Echoes
“Holy, Holy, Holy,
The Lord God Almighty”~
And chills reverberate throughout my heart.
