Grapple With Hope

Grapple With Hope

(for Jessica Spohnholtz)

Darkest Nights
Encroach on Peace,
Yet Doves Rest at ease
For a Warrior already
Fought and brought the Light~
A Grapple With Hope
To never give up
No matter the fear
Or the ghouls who show up;
A Mighty Power she wields,
Her Sword sharpened,
Her shield, armor polished
And her voice ready
To shout the name of her King,
To show the world His Love~
Oh a Grapple With Hope
Propels her to the Ready
Where fear cannot overcome her
And Grace shines ever brighter.
Let the Joy of the Lord
Shout out all the more
For a Warrior marches
Into darkest nights
With Light on her side
And Love the Echo of her soul.
~Selah~

Thimble Presses

Thimble Presses

(for Kelsey Yongue)

Chance encounters
Give Rise to Intimacy
With Abba’s Heart
And against her cheeks
The Spirit Thimble Presses
A Love song deep into her soul,
Never able to be silenced
Her voice will edify the world
And give Adoration
To her Blessed Beloved~
Oh snowflake surprises
Even show His thoughtfulness
Where each unique flake
He creates for her
And she gets lost in wonder
Glee upon her lips,
While Spirit Thimble Presses
A Greater Awareness
Of one another’s Love
Into her Heart’s core
And she can never be shaken
For the foundation of her self
Rests in His uniqueness
Of a Mighty Love
For His Snowflake Beloved!

Windmills

Windmills

(for Adam Peng)

Set up Windmills,
Feel the Breeze of God
And Harvest Spiritual Presence
For Greater Growth
Enlivens the Soul
To new Heights
And every Mountainous Obstruction
Falls to leave a clear path~
Oh Windmills swirl
A collection of Fans
To blow away the chaff
And leave room for good fruit,
Blossoms of Love, Peace
Over the dues required,
A River rushes,
Waterfalls Thunder
The Newness of Christ
Into the Depths of his soul
And a Roar Echoes forth
To Passionate Pleas
For Kingdom Come
When he sets up his Windmills
Of Opportunity and Grace.

Blasts Into Space

Blasts Into Space

(for John Michael McCaffrey)

Identity spoken
Words to come to
And the Roots grip tighter
To the Light to live by~
The Countdown begins
A simple notion indeed
Where a Son Blasts Into Space
To give Rise to Father’s Glory
In the Milky Way
And beyond.
A Mighty Wave
Into new Places
With Love and Grace,
On the forefront of the Shuttle,
A Testament to Goodness
For the placement of stars
Constellation Sequences
Give Rise to Greater Intimacy,
A Son with His Father
Closeness Proximity
Paints Rings around Saturn
Of a Love which forever
Expands and Expands~
Oh a Son Blasts Into Space
Such adventures evermore!

The Bugle Sounds

The Bugle Sounds

(for David Sadowski)

A Wild West showtime,
Men ready to charge
Full Battalion in Blue and Gray
With Muskets and Rapiers,
The horses stamp their feet
And The Bugle Sounds
The advancement at hand
Into the Fight for nations~
Boldness, Courage
Take Precedent of mind
To override fear
And let Trust in the Commander
Surge with Passion
For Wave after Wave
The gap Protected
And Ground retaken
By the ones who listen~
The Bugle Sounds,
Hope arises
And His Battalion shouts
“Hallelujah! Praise the Commander!”
The Bugle Sounds Indeed
On the waves of the call,
A whisper, soft~
“I Am with you! Don’t be afraid!”

To spread Love, Joy, Peace
To every place journeyed
And to every person encountered.

And absolute Victory to Victory
On the stage of Dreams
Played with Faith and Dedication

Deep in My Veins

Deep in My Veins

Current ~ Check it
I ain’t got sleeves,
But deep in my veins
Runs the course of His Presence
An Essence of Tranquility

You see Jesus took me on
A loner, cartoon perceiver
Stuck in the woods,
Kept to myself,
Even when I tried to journey out
Out with friends,
But the darkness whispered,
“Do they even care?
Do they indeed enjoy my company?
Or do I sit in some game
The joke to the school?”

Oh how darkness encircled me,
Spoon-fed lies to my soul
And I ate every drop
Afraid.
Afraid of them.
Afraid of myself.
Just afraid
And fearful of rejection
The injection to despair~
I…I fought tremors in the night.

A dark house in the woods
And my dad still tucked me in;
Yes, he still tucked me in
At fourteen sometimes~
Middle-schooler,
Active imagination and dark stairs the enemy.

Compiled fear I hid in shells
My Ninja Turtles the comfort~
Cowabunga! Joy indeed!

But always more than meets the eye
And since 2000 a journey,
I ride with Him
Grace, Compassionate eyes
To free me from myself
And my own logic.

Never gives up!
What a King to pursue me!
Oh Jehovah Jireh,
The Provider
And every step I take
I sense His Breath,
Ethereal vibrations
He calls me to the nations~
I quake, yet He stabilizes
I faint and He materializes,
A Jubilee in the peel back
Of my weathered bark.

So why?
Why do I love such a King?

Because…
Because without Him a am a husk,
A shell to my true self,
Unknown and broken,
But with Him my soul laughs,
Laughs to the Darkness
And jingles the keys given
To me…for me to set captives free,
The Journey continues, I walk with Him
A Love, an Agape of the Heart
Not forced or ruled
Just invited…
Invited into an Epic Poetical Extreme
To proclaim prolific proficiency
Of Treasures drawn into completion
With Abba, the Father, no bother
Love, Joy, Grace oozes into Divinity
And I…I am apart of such a Tapestry,
Set free from my shells
A blossom into Creativity
Of Heaven on Earth,
He stands Eternal, my Worth!

Redemption’s Breath

Redemption’s Breath

(for Taylor Hill)

Beauty beyond reason,
Storied past, paths
And tears flow springs,
Yet Redemption’s Breath
Shows the bigger picture
For things meant for destruction
Get turned upside-down
For our good, for our best
To draw us further into His chest,
Head on His bosom
And feel His deep breaths~
He whispers, “Oh Child,
I’ve got you! I’ve always got you!
No need to stand afraid!
Let my Peace, my Joy Flood you
And my Love flow through your veins
For my Redemption’s Breath
Overrides any evil or darkness.
You can let go of the cliff
I will catch you.”

A cool breeze rises
And her Beauty shines even more
When chains broken,
Cell doors open~
She walks Free into Beloved’s arms
And her smile shines bright
No matter the darkness!

Ocean Waves

Ocean Waves

(for Victoria Castillo)

Sandcastles line the Shore,
Tapestries of craftsmanship
And the sun reflects
Off the blue glass
When she notices the Love,
Which supersedes all others
On Ocean Waves, calm
For the Beloved awaits
His Daughter to go Deeper,
Whether she wades in the water
Or walks above the waves~
No matter for He beckons
And her hand He grasps,
The Gentleness of His caress
For a Princess Divine.
Oh Ocean Waves rise higher,
But fear she doesn’t feel,
So she nods and runs full speed
Over sandcastles and into the water
Right into His Embrace
Upon the waters
And heartbeats resonate
Into Unison and Love
Atop the crash of Ocean Waves.

Firm Roots

Firm Roots

(for Michael Sullivan)

Tall, Radiant
He stands at attention
Branches Spread wide
For the birds to Rest
Through gale force winds
And no matter what
He sways with the breeze,
But never falters in Identity~
Firm Roots sustain him
In the knowledge and Majesty
Of his Gentle Creator
And new Truths grow
His Roots even further
Deeper and Deeper
Into Good Soil
Cultivated by the Gardener.
Oh Firm Roots take hold
Deeper and Deeper
To cling to his foundation
Of Love and Grace
In humble satisfaction
Within the Arms of Life
The Embrace of His Heart, Breathes
Firm Roots take greater hold.
~Selah~

A Conduit, A Vessel

A Conduit, A Vessel

I Am a conduit, a vessel of the Kingdom of God,
     a token or totem to the invisible stroke
          of unseen fingers with my words
       and actions a semblance
               of Love for all encountered~
     Oh the beauty of cloud filled skies
          and the wonders of sun rays on the edge,
            silver lines and slivers of azure whispers
        to speak of  your Radiance
               in the gears of the universe
           and rain splatters to attention
                 a melody of beats in the sublime
             course of mysticism and wine.

I Am a conduit, a vessel in the dreams
     grown reality on Earth~
          Love begets love e’ery whistle blows
       and gong radiates the collusion of vibrations
     yet unleashed for all to know…

 I Am a conduit, a vessel
          ~Selah~

Deepest Wonder

Deepest Wonder

(for Andrea Sepulveda)

Blackhole Surprises
In the farthest reaches
Of Space and Universe
Within the Constellations
She rests in Deepest Wonder
Of Orion’s Belt,
His utility to hung
And Andromeda’s farewell
When chains broken~
Freedom Echoes Galaxies,
While she gazes at Creation,
The night sky’s Broadway
An epic tale nonetheless
And her Deepest Wonder
Upon the hands who Created
The stories to yearn
For Redemption’s Quest
To Proclaim the Dawn
Of a Brand New Day.

Oh your Love for Me!

Oh your Love for Me!

Oh your Love for me!
Oh your Love for humanity
Where you would hang on a tree
And decree,
“Father, forgive them
For they know not what they do!”

Oh your Love for me!
Oh your Love for humanity
Where you would hang on a tree
And allow Hell to scream,
“We won! We took the Son of God!
We got Him! Boom!”

Oh your Love for me!
Oh your Love for humanity
Where you would hang on a tree
And suffer for all to see,
Only to rise again
On the third day, a grin!

Oh your Love for me!
Oh your Love for humanity
Where you would take the place
Of sinners without grace,
Just to come again
And pass your Righteousness to me!

Oh your Love for me
Rides higher and higher
Than I could ever imagine
And I…I…I stand
In AWE of you,
The King of the Jews!

Oh your Love for me!
Oh your Love for humanity!
All I breathe
~Selah, my King~

Windchimes Whistle

Windchimes Whistle

(for Rachel Barnette)

A forested glade before the porch
On the eaves, a windchime
And the whistle tunes
In the breeze of the morn
To give rise to a New Day.
Yes, Windchimes Whistle
A melody all their own
Along the paths to cross
For Love resonates
From the lips of the Son,
The still, small whisper,
“I Love You, my Daughter
And all shall BE okay
For with you I stand
Hand-in-Hand,
In the sun and in the shade.
Listen to the wind,
To the birds of the air
And the life in the glade~
I Am with you, Beloved!”

Windchimes Whistle
To declare the rise of Life,
Of Love cherished,
Never Forgotten, Never Lost
And the Breeze
Blows New on the Horizon.

Prism’s Radiance

Prism’s Radiance

(for Destiny Trotter)

Reflections of Eyes
Clues to the Galaxies
Of Hues not seen before,
A testament to Creation
With Beauty unlocked
When His Prism’s Radiance
Shines ever forward,
A smile sincere and real
Along the walk around the block~
Comparison’s knee-jerk reaction
Sometimes kills the vibe,
But the Essence of His Love
Massages the ‘Just Be’ reflectors
Into an Uproar of Grace
And His Prism’s Radiance
Flows Freer than ever
With Blossoms of Lilies
Upon the Water’s edge.
A Gentle reminder
To Love one’s self
In the simple contexts
Of Beauty in Creation
For His Prism’s Radiance
Cannot be dulled or outshined
When she walks complete
In utter Confidence.

Climber’s Peace

Climber’s Peace

(for Heath Tankersley)

One foot at a time
Handholds up above
Make the leap
Trust your Instincts,
Your Gut
And believe in the Impossible~
Mt. Everest or Kilimanjaro
A Mountain insurmountable
For Love propels hearts
To newness and Life,
Blossoms Bloom Mighty
In the Presence of your Glory
A Climber’s Peace
On every Leap~
Grace and Joy Ever Louder
Explode within his soul
A Journey Deeper
Into the Heart of Abba.

Umbrella’s Horizon

Umbrella’s Horizon

(for Jessica Hurst)

Tip the Point of Dreams
Across the Fulcrum
And the Breeze Rises
A Release of Life, Love
To glide through the Air
Holy, Perfect~
One with the King,
Jehovah Jireh,
Blessed Joy
When Umbrella’s Horizon
Comes to Fruition
Along the Cityscape
Of Picturesque Panoramas
And Grace Explodes
In Humble Jubilee,
A Breakthrough through Mountains
And across seas, so calm
For Beauty translates
Into Destiny.

Birth Canal

Birth Canal

(for Steven Buffington)

Deep, dark, damp,
Muddy Waters
And a headlamp
Treks and adventures
To Earth’s Center
A mile or two down
To twist and turn in life,
Through a Birth Canal~
A Constriction of Possibilities
With ample moments for Growth,
Growth of the Unknown,
Growth of Faith and Spirit
For Life constricts sometimes,
Our Breath,
Our Mobility,
But ALWAYS Hope
Awaits and stays constant
A Light to the darkness
And decisions don’t stand still
Every time one traverses
Through a Birth Canal.

Known Overflow

Known Overflow

(for Andrew Ingrassia)

Alignment in tune,
Alive to the Wonder
Of a Father who Knows
And knows, and knows
Every aspect of the Heart
To Love and Love some more
Passed the Point of no return,
A Triumphant Celebration
With Shofars on blast
And under His Waterfall
Stands a Known Overflow
To fill once again
The heart, soul of His Beloved,
His Son destined for greatness
In the Proclamation of Grace
To all the Nations~
A galactic quest set
In tune with His purposes
Of Love and Laughter
Over all the known parts
Within His Overflow of Love.

Tiger Lilies

Tiger Lilies

(for Robby Smith)

A jungle on the mend
With Thunderous stars to fly
High on wings of Eagles
Where Tigers play with Rabbits
And Lilies mingle with Pines,
A unified front of the Heart~
Yes Tiger Lilies form
A wreath of Peace
Over the ponds encountered
Along every Jungle path
And the unison Roars
Of Grace granted, given
To the ones met, known
And even not yet known,
Rambunctious Ramifications.
Oh how the Hook garners
A flight to unknown territories,
Rescue missions for friends~
The Tiger Lilies of chiefs
And Peace resonates between realms
To Proclaim Freedom,
The Pixie Dust of souls
In flight to new Dreams.

Focused Precision

Focused Precision

(for Ron Walborn)

Eyeglass Magnifier
Multiplied force
To cause Focused Precision
Upon the hearts of multitudes
And transform Nations
By the Love Poured out
In every avenue of the world,
In every system counted;
A Unification of the Bride
To break forth into new ground
Where lavished Grace
Flows Forever Free~
Abba’s River of Joy
From the Depths of His Heart
And the furthest reaches
Of His Blessed Universe~
Galaxies play in Rhythm
To the sounds of Heaven
Spoken from Focused Precision
Out of an Intimate Walk
With a Beloved Friend.

Seahorse Races

(for Amanda McConnell)

In the depths of the Sea
Lies the Treasures
For all to see
Of Gems found
And planted along the Journey
With Eternity in mind
To gaze upon
Hope for the Nations
Through Seahorse Races
Swam in Unison
With the Northern Lights
Synchronized in Grace,
An underwater Ballet
Full of Passion,
A Gentle Embrace
With the Father’s Heart~
A Dance in time,
Salty brine
So faster and faster
Merry-Go-Round
Of Seahorse Races.

Owl Trees

Owl Trees

(for Hannah Gunnin)

Midnight Free
On a forested path
Walk amongst sentinels
And high above a “Hoot”
From Night’s watchman~
Glassy orbs swivel
To and Fro
To gaze upon the walker
For all around
Owl Trees exist
Along the path
For Wisdom and Truth
To pervade the essence
Of one’s walk
With the Creator
And in His Creation
Lies the Peacefulness
To Rise Up and Shine
For all the world
To awaken in greater levels
Of Wisdom, Truth and Love
Along the Paths of Life
Filled with Owl Trees.
