FROM THE SHADOWS A POEM OF INVITATION

Here is a short poem of hope and faith.

* * * * *

FROM THE SHADOWS
A POEM OF INVITATION

So many of us
Live in worlds
Beyond reach in places
Of shadow
That we have become
Like the creatures
That live at the bottom of the sea-
Dwelling in darkness
And misshapen.
But He Who Is Light
Sees you down there.
He calls out to you
In your darkness.
He invites you
To come to beauty,
To leave the deep place
Of cold silence,
And join Him
In the sun swept meadows,
Watched over
By Him the Good Shepherd.



"Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest." Matthew 11:28.

DISCOVERY, A POEM OF PLACE

This short freestyle poem is a like a short sentimental story of adventure. 

Many free-verse or freestyle poems have a structure of some sort, maybe in rhythm or phraseology, but this was written without intentional constraints since I was hoping for a feeling of spontaneity. Nevertheless, I rewrote it many times to get it just right. 

I hope you enjoy it.

DISCOVERY
A POEM OF PLACE

Our sails rode highways
In a blue sky
Below a golden sun
And brought us
To ancient structures
Of a forgotten purpose.
We explored their
Northern culture seeing
What we never saw before
But the image I saved was when
The glass of wine
Shown rose color on your face-
Bringing you
From the shadows.
We walked the streets of that city
Beyond the border
And waited for the sunset-
For we had no other home
Than each other.

TRANSIT OF SEASONS, A POEM OF LOVERS I HAVE NEVER KNOWN



* * * * *

Transit Of Seasons
A Poem Of Lovers I have Never Known

Every autumn leaf speaks,
In its faded beauty
And spent life
How
Love disappoints,
Like a rocket that failed at launch
Never to see the stars-
I mourn those worlds
Undiscovered.
I sought them in ancient maps
Longing for a clue
But could never find the cure
For why I can go on
Without seeing you
But not a moment
Without thinking of your
Ghost.
Now my autumn leaves
Cover the ground like
A death shroud of summer
That whispers, "Shish,
Shish, Shish,"
As I walk through them
On my way to spring.

THE WATERS, A POEM ABOUT NOT GOD

This poem is about the search for God, and the failure to find Him through our own lack of humility.

* * * * *

The Waters,
A Poem About Not God

Like water that flows
Filling pools and lakes
We would fill up our lives
To all our edges
Until our towers touched clouds.
But He Who Commands Seas
Cursed our pride
And our weak towers fall,
Leaving us with
Nothing that will impress;
And we remain purposeless,
And meaningless
At best,
Or bitter and resentful.
Our search to fulfill
Is
Like reading books
In another language.
We cannot succeed
On our own,
And will fail to satisfy.
At last, we are
Like leaves that float
On the waters
Which slowly
Drift to the sea.

TRAVEL GUIDE, A POEM ABOUT THE NEED TO BE KNOWN

This is a love poem, that is clear, but it also points to needs that are as strong as the need for love. 


* * * * *

Travel guide,
A Poem About The Need To Be Known

I wish I could tell you all my worlds;
Many are in the place called tomorrow
And await the sunrise to give them life,
But others have been ravaged by cruelty
Where war, disease, and famine left them dry.
I would show you to where my heart is buried-
That lonely place where the love in me died.
I would watch to see my lands in your eyes
For through you I would find understanding,
But I can't ask you to cross these lands
I would not force on you such a burden.
Yet, if ever one were to know my worlds
I would grant a passport only to you.

MAY YOU LIVE BEYOND ME, A POEM OF COJOINED FREEDOMS

This is a poem of hope and goodwill.

* * * * *
May You Live Beyond Me
A Poem Of Cojoined Freedoms

I fear not your freedom
If I may see you fly
To where the clouds are home.
If your dreams could take wing
May they take you ever
To places of beauty
And love.
Yet,
Not all freedom is wise,
But where it is good I wish
I could give you the wings
That lift you on its winds.
I shall regret not
The pain your freedom gives-
Because your dreams are mine.
So, go, answer your call
And follow the sun.
I shall always treasure
Seeing you rise in flight
As you forever go.
