TAKING KNOWLEDGE, A Poem of Psalm 32:5



TAKING KNOWLEDGE,
A Poem of Psalm 32:5


We want to be known
And yet we are afraid
Of being known.
We are made
In the image
God who is
Intimate
So we must be made
To be known
By such a God
And to know
Him-Who-Is-Light.
But we are flawed
With darkness within.
We fear rejection
Shame and ridicule.
God knows us
He loves us
God is willing to forgive
The worst things
We have ever done.
But the unforgivable
Thing
Is to not take
Forgiveness.

I acknowledged my sin to you, I said, I will confess my transgressions to the lord and you forgave,
Psalm 32:5

THE PETTY DRAMA, A POEM OF THE TICKET HOLDER

This little poem uses metaphor to make a point about the way we live our lives.  I hope it gives you something to think about.

THE PETTY DRAMA
A Poem of the Ticket Holder


Ours is a city
Full of actors
Living on the stage
Of our little lives.
We rehearse dramas
Before the mirror,
And write our lines
As we say them.
We have forgotten
Our own names
While we portray
Fictional characters.
We live for reviews
Written by
Faceless critics.
We are unaware that
Only one ticket is sold
To the lifetime
Performance
And He
Who Is Audience
Watches from above.
He waits for us
In hopes that we
Return to the script.

FOUND BY FAMILY, A POEM OF THE ADOPTER

* * * * *

FOUND BY FAMILY A POEM OF THE ADOPTER You can watch A flock of birds overhead And envy not the flight But their family. You can see a deer Grooming its fawn And envy the mother's Gentlest love. You can watch a wolf Teach his pup to hunt And envy the father Who leads his son. But to see your own Family photo Brings heartache For what you never had. Christ left his place In heaven and came here To die So your salvation is complete And his death Validates your adoption By blood into his royal family. Our own kin of earth's dust May disappoint But not our loving Father In heaven His love will never Disappoint you. He will never Leave you nor forsake you.

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.
