Gray darkness chasing sidestepping shadows

Upward gaze to steal a ray

Wetness falling uncontrollably

Shuddering shaking

Howling deafness

Glancing downward toward a puddle


Steely cold penetrating the stillness

Tense hands grasping for peace

Glass beads tinkling

Nervously fumbling

Gazing toward the gray heavens

Clammy hands gripping tightly an invisible world


Fuchsia and lavender replacing disappearing stars

Tired eyes releasing their hold

Lightness rising softly

Soaring singing

Stumbling into confidence

Smiling eyes filling with hope


Trip Through Purgatory

Trip Through Purgatory – from my other blog, Less World More Christ.

Independence Night

Colors shatter night

Incensed booms shower down lights

Freedom still reigns here.

Close Encounter with Love

Baby’s shining smile

Delighting strangers’ faces

Memories refreshed

Love Stands

An aching heart, longing for Love

Swollen tears flood sorrowful eyes

Could not this cup of thirst pass by?

Shattered body of an unwavering Spirit

Giving up the last breath for mankind.

Wounded head, beatless heart

Fallen body, transfigured by hate.

But for a moment all seems lost

Love freely given, now takes on our pain.

Precious Lord, You removed our stains

Now dripping on your beaten brow

So much burden for the King of kings.

You burst forth, victorious over sin.

Only Love stands now, unblemished and pure.

Love enough for the whole world.

For Our Sake

Each sin pressed down, smothering. Drenched in hatred, spit, mud.

Alone, naked, forgotten. Abandoned to capture the world.

Eyes piercing straight through the darkness. Seeing only His God-given glory.

No adoration left, only silence. The curtain torn, victory won.
