Worshipful Insight

Worshipful Insight

(for Elizabeth Nettleton)

In moments of Grace,
In minutes within seconds
Within the Glory Cloud
Of a life lived in Worship
To the King of Kings
Comes deep Revelation
Of Worshipful Insight
In the secret place~
The Heart of Hearts
At the feet of a Savior
To gaze deep
Into the Galaxies of His Eyes
And a Joyful song breaks forth,
A new song
Never heard before
A Triumphant Chorus
Of breakthrough
And breakthrough
Hallelujah!
~Selah~

On the Divine

On the Divine

The cursive lines dance a jig,
     Mason Jar tonics
  Shine brighter under the moon
and the fireflies light up
          Electric.

On the eve of all
     the sonata of Katydids
   fill the fields,
          the tremendous beauty
      Crashes ~ a hundred and fifty foot
            Freefall,
          escapes the rocks and dams
        to speak in gurgles.

     Listen close,
          Rocks roll magnify magnetism
        upon the clear cool night
     when the sun rises,
               a slow ascent, figurine control
          and triggers trigger a new song
       to flow from the depths of shadows.

             ~Selah  fair Beauty, Selah~

Spread the Kingdom: Love

Spread the Kingdom: Love

(for Michael Hall)

Lush Mountains
Rise into View
Along a windy Road
Full of new sights
On the moments called to
Rise, rise and rise again
To take the Love
To New heights
And New places~
Spread the Kingdom,
Disciple Nations
And proclaim Glory
The Name of the Lord
Humble Provider,
Counselor,
Lover, such a Lover!
Extraordinary Gifts
In new homes and places
With the people chosen
To give all of oneself~
Love, Love, Love
And Love some more!

A Top A Boulder

A Top A Boulder

(for Josh Mackey)

He stands Tall, strong
A top a Boulder,
Firm in convictions,
In Faith
And in His Identity~
Never Waver,
Never fear where you lie
For closer than a microscope
Abba knows the Heart,
The thoughts and struggles
And He loves still~
Beyond the galaxies
And Universe
A Joyous Pursuit
No matter what
And no matter the demands,
Ask, Seek, Find,
To Hold Fast to His hand
He Never lets Go
For Love stands
A Top a Boulder.

If I Could Pen

     Today’s post stands with the numbers 500 for the words within becomes my 500th published post on ‘this’ blog!

If I Could Pen

If I could pen a thousand words,
But not love for love’s sake,
Then every syllable fails upon the air
And I would lose sight of You~
Oh, But love penetrates my soul
To every sinew and synapse
Of the mind and beyond,
A glorious juxtaposition
With one goal in mind:
To Proclaim the King’s Name
On every Highway and byway,
On top of every mountain
And in every valley low
A chorus melody in harmony
With the drums of Heaven.
Angels’ Rhapsody Repose
For essence to declare
His Presence in all the Air~
I breathe in and out,
Inhale, exhale and words escape
Language all unknown to me,
But to the King~
Beauty rises!
~Selah~

Cloud Maker

Cloud Maker

(for Tayler Patton)

Precipitation acculmulates
Into shapes and sizes
Of every kind~
Bunnies, flowers, Dragons
And More~
Cumulus, light and fluffy
To Dark and ominous Rainbearers.
Her hands aloft
She creates Hope
For the Hot and weary
To the waterlogged and desperate
She handles every situation
With Grace, Peace
And the Humblest of Loves~
The Cloud Maker
For You and I
To gather under shade
With Peacefulness blossomed
In all our souls.

A Trail to Eternity

A Trail to Eternity

(for Lindsay Armstrong)

Trail to an end,
But Hope Never Lost
For bread crumb paths
Line the Forest Floor
And rays of sunshine
Penetrate the foliage
To pave a way ~ Always!
So, DO NOT fear~
Keep your head High~
Rest in His Spirit,
His Presence
And allow for Heart massages
To Strengthen and Grow
From Glory to Glory,
Victory to Victory
And Love Radiates
Throughout every aspect
Of her life
To proclaim the day of the Lord.
Yes, one trail at an end,
But Pioneer, she paves New
A Trail to Eternity
And her Beloved.

Pyramid Mountains

Pyramid Mountains

(for Jeff Tyner)

Full Packs, Overloaded
Breathe In and Out
Love Explodes Now
And Laughter, Joy Bubble Forth
For Strength Refilled
Again and Again
To scale Pyramid Mountains,
Which loom high above~
Mustard Seed Faith
Results in Cast away Stones
And a gigantic Tree
For birds to fill with Life;
The Fruit Bountiful
Evermore Forever Forward
When sprints, Jogs onward
Never Falter, Never Waver,
And Bravery, Courage Resonate
To Echoes in Eternity
Because Pyramid Mountains
Could NOT overcome
Such a Warrior of a King.

Son-Rise Mountains

Son-Rise Mountains

(for Chip and Tia Carnes)

Treks and Journeys to loom
Above and In-Front
For the Kingdom to reign
Where their feet take Acres
And Live, Love Exude
From all they set to do
Over the mountains
The Sun Rises ~ an array
Of colors and hues ~ Simple Beauty
To Proclaim newness
In every aspect of the Trail
And Faith, Grace, Peace
Grow Exponential in Height
With every ledge overtaken
And on the Horizon
Son-Rise Mountains~
Not a barrier to conquer,
But Invitations for more
More Love and Grace,
More to the Journey
Into His Restful Heart,
Just More.
~Selah~

Just Right

Just Right

(for Shelby Thayer)

Smiles, laughter, and more
Joy Overflows
And her Beauty speaks Volumes~
LOUDER and LOUDER
For in her Abba stirred
A wonderful Creation
From her head
To the tips of her toes
And all around His fingerprints
Stand visible
Just Right
To give Jehovah Praise~
Aye Just Right
She stands at attention
With Grace and Love
Her Posture
For True Beauty
Rests upon her shoulders
And in Him she Rests…
Just Right.

Butterfly Castles

(for Rachel Price)

Elegance Divine
Down the Forest path
Through Halls of Colors
Soft petals glance
Against the skin

The Towers Rise high,
Higher and Higher still
A skyline to draw
Every Weary Traveler
Into Rest, Peace
Within the Gentle Halls
Of Butterfly Castles.

Giant Firefly

Giant Firefly

(for Dusty Dills)

Moon Rises,
A cool calm Night
And on the breeze
Grace floats and blinks,
A Giant Firefly
To fill the darkness
Momentary Light
For every Path Ahead,
Meander with the Trajectory
And come upon
Blessed Treasure
At every turn and pass~
A trail of Goodness
And Kindness,
Pure Joy in the Assemblage
Of a Lightbearer
In the Darkness of Life
To shine a True Path
With Adventure along Twilight.

Leap Into Flight

Leap Into Flight

(for Hamilton Dilbeck)

Thirty Yards to go,
Maybe more
To the edge of the cliff,
So Full on sprint~
Breathe In and Out
And at the last moment
Leap Into Flight
For Dreams and aspirations
Flow Forth New
To take You further still
For the Kingdom to Spread!
Yes, Spread your wings,
Leap Into Flight
And allow His Breeze
To take you
On Wild Adventures
Through Grace.

A Sonnet in the ‘Home Row’

A Sonnet in the ‘Home Row’
***

The dreams I dream I don’t know what to tell you,

But I’m gonna sit and write for I got the right
With the lights on and the electric currents
Run through, the pen to paper,
The ink bleeds and my fingers flourish
Upon the keys, a sonnet in the ‘home row’…
***
Listen…
I don’t understand the world at all,
Not since the fall when I dropped the ball
And failed to speak my mind,
I once got lost, but now I’m found
A find, a treasure, a simple measure
Of the King’s goodness
And the beat on the synapses
Snaps back and forth
A firework explosion on thoughts so real…
***
I’m done with where the world says I should be
For without Him I sit, nothing, nada
Zilch and zero, but in Him
Oh yeah in Him I reside
All inside, He breathes a new breath
And I soar upon the Eagle’s wings
From the destruction seen
At the bottom of the mountain
And with my closest friend I rest~
Rest to understand:
I in Him and He in me.
***

Three Years Ago

Three Years Ago

Three Years Ago today
A journey to start
And share words of the Heart,
My Heart, my day of birth~
Twenty-Nine ticks
Of Time’s ancestral clues,
What words dance upon the mind
And want to shine, to play
Before Kings and magistrates,
Within Nations and the world
Along frequencies so grand
My thoughts pitter-patter;
Consistency in Rhythms,
But now post Four-Nine-Zero
And avalanches continue
To string along quartets
Of syllables and tittles
In every which way ~ Endless
Streams Scream. The waterfalls
Of Grace wash over me
And to pillow soft the crutch
I sweeten the mix
To tell you, Dear Reader,
I Love You! I cherish You
And Thanks from the bottom
Of my soul to peep in on me,
On my words and scope.

Three Years Ago I began
A topsy-turvy kind of world
Where Echoes lie in Data cues
And zeros and ones hold rapport
Over any other tune~
Toons run amuck,
The mazes ethereal, solid
In every chance, raise you another
And Three Years Ago
The start of strings to words
Rampant to shine Love and Grace
In any undertone
The slivers along the pave
Speak Louder still.
~Selah~

A Waterfall From Heaven

A Waterfall From Heaven

Out of the clouds
Cold descent
Rapid Fire snowshoe
On the means of averages
Along Padded suite
To Circumvent the Diameter
And the Resonance Amplifies
When Societal clues
Scream of different Factions
With unity tossed to the wayside~
A Difference in subtraction
Added to the fray
Of Rapturous Endurance
On the treadmill of Life;
Oh how the tortoise moves
Slower than the hare
Back and forth, back and forth
To gauge the sonata of Truth
Amongst the Galaxies
Of your Precious Universe,
Stand tall and firm,
Oh, Precious One
For out of the Clouds
Comes the Substantive Presence
Of a Love, Agape and True,
Never known before
And washes over all the Earth,
A Waterfall from Heaven!
~Selah~

Always Opened Wide

Always Opened Wide

(for Bryan Reski)

Trustfulness in every smile,
The clouds clear
And the soil dries
For the King’s door~
Always Opened Wide,
So walk on in
And lay the burdens down
To which Freedom births New
For every moment in time
Rests on the click
Of a hand ~ one second
Again and again.
Do NOT fret or shake
The Words already Spoken~
“The Doors for his life,
Always Opened Wide
For my Son, I know
And He knows me,
The Possibilities lie Endless.”
~Selah~

Flamingos Dance

Flamingos Dance

(for Ben Coppock)

Agility and Gracefulness
Resonate throughout
When the Flamingos Dance
To give Praise, Glory
To their Creator~
A give and take
Into Majesty and awe
And in the midst
Of rhythms and beats
Never heard before
The Beauty and Strength
Of Heaven’s Creations
Give Rise to Joyfulness
Deep Laughter
With smiles so wide
The moon beams along
All from the Bravery
Of the Flamingos’ Dance
Upon the River of Life,
Which flows from Abba’s Heart.

Towers for All

Towers for All

(for Biagio Dell’Aiera)

Heart Explosion,
Compassionate Beats
To Build multiple
Towers for all
To draw circles of Grace
Infinite Dimensions
And Fireworks surprise
The Anonymity of Servants
For Greater Love to Shine~
Towers for All
To draw in the Treasure
For the King and His Kingdom
To flow, overflow
And flow some more!
Beauty in the Particulars,
The Big Picture
And the small
To when Towers for All
Spring up from seeds
Planted throughout the years.

Waterfall Richness

Waterfall Richness

(for Tommy Aston)

To the Cliff’s Edge
Peer Down
Into a River’s Collective
Of Beauty and Love
Within Hugs so grand
And LEAP~
Leap into His fathoms
Of Grandiose Passion,
An Embrace
To Cleave Closer to You
Upon the Mists and Spray
Of such Waterfall Richness
To Provide Life evermore
In Every Display~
Oh, let the bells toll
For Praises Resound in Heaven
When a Son Awakens
To trueness of purpose
And Loves afresh
From the Father’s heart.

Deep in the Forest’s Heart
The Den full of Life

Give Rise to the Strength
Inside every encounter
Within the Forest,
The Spirit of Adventure
Very much Alive.
Aye, Wolf Pawprints

Leaves a Legacy
Of Strength and Stature
In Grace and Majesty.

Blessed Surprises

Blessed Surprises

(for Taylor Mills)

Turn a Corner
Extra flights of stairs
To next floors to traverse
And operate upon~
Blessed Surprises
Included at every instance
To wow the mind
Beyond Belief
For Faithfulness culminates
Into Assurance of Trust,
So Fall back
Into Spirit’s Embrace
And greater Revelation
Flows forth, now and forever.
A Freedom Release,
Because of Blessed Surprises~
Rejoice in all His Ways
And the Awe of Life
Rejuvenates Again and again.

Filthy to Clean

Filthy to Clean

(for Chuck Morris)

Rags soiled and used
Broken, ripped,
Even shredded to threads,
And yet Greater lies Ahead
For Redemption Paramount
In the Process
Of Full Circles
To where Threads become
Rethreaded Anew,
So Filthy to Clean
In multiple moments
Arise a Phoenix Tapestry
Never seen before
And all the Past Sits in Resplendent
Glory, Oh Glory~
Filthy to Clean
In one simple swipe
Of words spoken
From the heights and depths,
“I Love You!”

Dragonfly Melody

Dragonfly Melody

(for Brody Contarino)

Roundabouts and Loop-de-loops
Dragonflies flight atop the Water
For a quick sip
And journey through fields
To a Melody never heard
When Love resonates
More and More~
Beauty in the notes,
Captured in Grace
For the Canvas of Life
Exudes Pixels of Truth
Upon the stratosphere
All Around
In Rainbow Hues
Presented by good eyes.
Yes, a Dragonfly Melody
Along the walls of our circles
To give note
To the Realities of the World.
