Awoken to Courage

Awoken to Courage

(for D.S.)

Fear envelopes,
Insecurity drains
And the mentality lashes out,
‘I have to look tough,
To be tough,
To fight or look weak’,
And yet the simple Truth
Of an overcomer rises,
One who stands to attention,
To walk in Bravery
Awoken to Courage
Of a different kind
Where Kindness reigns
And new paths emerge
To lead others
To a pasture of unity~
Yes an overcomer to all circumstances,
To every mountain of despair
For in Joy expressed
Light shines in any darkness.

The Darkest Knight

The Darkest Knight

(for Mr. Richardson)

A Heritage surprise
Of Central Florida means
When a superhero rises
Into his own
And shines for all to see
For the Light he shines
In the darkest of nights
Brightens the days
Of all encountered~
Yes, the Darkest Knight
Awakens to Destiny
Along fresh paradigms
Witnessed and experienced
In Peace and Truth
And the Knight’s Star
Ricochets into view,
A beam of Hope and Passion
To pour everything out
For the next generation
Of world changers.

Proverb Cuttlefish Petroglyphs

Proverb Cuttlefish Petroglyphs

Wisdom spoken
Taken in at times
Upon the strangeness
Found all around
Of a Proverb experienced
On eves of yesterday
From the deep found
A cuttlefish surprise
To hug and embrace you
Along the eons traversed~
Petroglyphs etched in ice
Of caves and moments
Frozen long ago,
Only to proclaim
More and More
The means by which we walk
Day-in and Day-out
Throughout our minutes
Spent in the Truth
Of utmost Love~
A Proverb to a cuttlefish
Onward to a Petroglyph
In the caves of our memories
To live in humble satisfaction.

Infinite Bellows

Infinite Bellows

Draw the flames,
Stoke the fire
Ablaze, a blaze roars
And an Infinite Bellows
Presses Oxygen forward
More and more
Through any ice storm
To scream Joyfulness
Louder and louder~
What happens when
One beckons to another
Into Faith and Glee
With Infinite Bellows
Of utmost Possibility
Along the lines traversed
Throughout the Rhythms
Of a Free life~
Think again
Out loud and Free
From the hindrances
Of the past,
Of failure after failure
Just Breathe
And take in the Spirit
Of YHWH’s Infinite Bellows
To reach to your heart,
To speak to your soul,
His Son, His Daughter.

Trust In the Name

Trust In the Name

(Psalm 20: 7-8)

Some trust in chariots and horses,
Some in tanks and guns
Or even political schemes and laws,
But we, yes we,
We Trust in the name
Of the LORD our God,
YHWH, Jehovah,
In Him we declare,
“We stand Risen in Grace
Holy, Hallelujah!
Perfect Sons and Daughters
Who Run after Love~”
Some trust in men and their plans,
Some in their own skills and desires
Or even the social cues and labels,
But we, yes we,
We Trust in the name
Of the LORD, our God,
YHWH, Elohim,
In Him we cry out,
“In You we stand
Whole, complete
In perfect Unity
With You, O Father, YHWH!
We trust in the name!
Hallelujah!”

Hello…Light

Hello…Light

You called,
I answered
From the other side
And the static settled
For a clear heart-to-heart
With my hand in yours
To tell you All of my fears,
My worries and anxieties,
But my joys and triumphs too~
What a walk and conversation
To hold with Eternity,
Eternal Cues of Universal Truth
Through simple talks…
Yes You called,
I answered
A Tardis surprise
To transport into your arms,
To our secret place
And the clues beckon me
To jump in more~
Ready to learn and teach
All you offer to us…
The call clicks off
With Light settled inside.

Whirlwinds of Grace

Whirlwinds of Grace

Black and white plaid
Treks through life
Of hardship and fear
To leave one in shame,
But Whirlwinds of Grace
Rise all around
To align a heart
Into Perfect Vertical
With the King of Kings~
Hallelujah! Let Love flow
For the darkness
No longer holds one down,
While Light Renews,
Restores, Recharges
A Bright Light
For which Shines Louder
The songs of Heaven
To set Free others around~
Whirlwinds of Grace
Wheel and wheel around
More, More and more again.

Unified Pride

Unified Pride

Wild mane
Pride of Lions
Together gathered to Hunt
With a plan in place,
Yes a Unified Pride
Of Lions and lionesses
Where in Unity
They prowl and feed
Complete and whole
With no division
And on the Serengeti
To run, play, and hunt
All in unison
ONE ~ Pride
Always together
Wilde and Free~
Look out for one another
Throughout endless plains
Where the sun kisses
The Eastern to Western Horizons,
A Unified Pride
To protect and love each other.

Of Redemption’s Grace
To still the mind and soul

To silence doubt and fear
And gaze upon Creation~
Look the birds of the air
Want for zilch,
While they swim or soar
Over the waters
And the turtles and gators
Swim with ease each day~

Let the stress go
And even the dragonflies
Land to rest once in awhile.

Restoration Prime

(for Jonathan Walton)

But a Father never gives up
To love and cherish
The One He adores

Occurs again and again
To bring His son
Closer and closer to Him~

And a son with purpose,
Who thought life forgot
Rises into True Love,
A tempest of Grace and Light

Rapid Fire Grace

(for Erica Hinkle)

In the blink of an eye
The mirror shatters,
But hope lasts eternal

Oh arise, awaken
A Daughter of the King
For His Love for you
Can never be quenched
And His Desire for you
Reverberates through all
The Universe and beyond.

Acceleration of Growth

Acceleration of Growth

(for Marcus Tyree)

Years and years
Possibility curbed,
And yet never forgotten
The potential inside~
Now a whisper echoes
“My son, I Love you
And I never stopped
In my pursuit of you!”

An Acceleration of Growth
In the One never forgotten
And Truth grows rapid
To solidify Faith anew
On the eve of Love
And His Depths He pours out
Over such a Precious son~
Yes, an Acceleration of Growth
Unprecedented in Kingdom Renewal
To open flood gates
Never known before.

When Abba speaks,
“My Daughter, I Am

Our Spirits Bombinate

Trepidation lingers
Upon the avenues to traverse

And no matter the course
Our spirits bombinate

To gaze upon the gems
Of every heart encountered
And the buzzes of our spirits
Grow with intensity~

Seeds planted so long ago
The middle of Autumn
And each tick I Grow

And 4,392 hours in my heart
Etched you in permanence

For another 183 days, a year
And beyond to gaze
Upon the Universe
Where each tick
Our devotion proliferates

Hallway Madness

Hallway Madness

Youth embellishments
On story after story
Of the days we walk
Through structures of memories
And Hallway Madness occurs
Again and again
When offense rises in one,
Then another and another~
How do we walk the Halls
In Grace and Truth
With Friendship and Hope
If for every moment
Embellishments happen
And anger rises higher and higher?
Yes Hallway Madness
Corridors of Crazy
With he said, she said tales
To cause rifts and divisions
Even though we all long

For unity and acceptance.

The Passage of Whimsy

SAMSUNG

Overgrown train tracks in Eustis, Florida

The Passage of Whimsy

Dandelion dances
On Spring’s Aurora
Along fresh streams
Of Perpetual Freshness
Through channels unknown
For the hour to tick by
And life flies onward~
A surreal absolute
Of Truth salted with Grace
The passage of whimsy
Takes on cues of its own,
So let loose and fly a kite
All will stand alright
For at the end of the day
Your choices choose the path
For which you’ll traverse~
One, Two, Three,
Ninety-Eight, Ninety-Nine, One Hundred
Roundabouts to make a U-turn,
The moments you need
To double-back and reflect
On decisions made or not made
Throughout the passage of whimsy
For which we all experience.

Along lines of Truth
In perpetual Possibility.

Dusty Rose

Doodle the heart
Along strings of Praise,
A Dusty Rose
Upon the way
We stop to breathe
Your fragrance of Grace
Within the confines
Of our pain filled hearts~
An Anthem of Truth
Resounds louder and louder,
The echo of our souls
On our darkest nights
And our victorious days
To allow our depths
To call out to Thee,
“Abba, Thank you!
For even in the darkest moments
Still I will Trust you~
The Dusty Rose of my soul
In your Spring Rain.”
