Poet:


On God’s Mountain


To be on your mountain top
with an elevated view,
could my chances increase
for getting a glimpse of You?

Standing barefoot in your presence
before a burning bush consumed,
would your glory envelop me
as a spiritual womb?

Moses saw your backside,
but show me instead your face and eyes.
Having direct interaction with you
should cause my faith to be revised.

Conquering obstacles of Life
via a mountainous climb,
while developing a personal relationship
help makes the upward trek sublime.

Prism to our Past


A humbling profession is
Biblical archaeology,
where people are found prostrate –
Searching for glimpses of Man’s history.

Forgotten souls and evidence have been
covered by layers of earthly dust,
as recent discoveries now include…
The decoding of Israel’s “Exodus”.

An eclectic collection of artifacts
of the “Hyksos Expulsion” have been laid bare
by Simcha, the “Naked Archaeologist”,
on TV’s “The History Channel” everywhere.

Proposed is a brilliant theory,
that spans a labyrinth of time,
while he employs computer graphics
to capture believers’ hearts and minds.

An unending excavation
of God’s Truth will forever last,
while we focus our attention
and gaze through… His prism to our past.

Only Your Adoration


The essence of God is within,
looking to spring forth in your life.
You have been greatly blessed,
but may be unable to recognize it.
Learn to die to selfish desire
and enable His Spirit to be activated.
All that God requests is your adoration.
Giving praise and singing hymns to Yaweh
means He has captured your heart –
Therefore, your love for Him is… Genuine.

Evening Sky


Gazing into a starry night,
I see a deep indigo sky
with perfect placement of twinkling light.
Stars reveal the expanse of time
from before the birth of humanity;
their existence came from dynamic energy
which was created by spoken word
that no man has ever heard.
Solitary spirit of awesome might
painted this heavenly canvas
with a flick of His hand and uttered thought.
Divine creation shared with you and me –
It’s part of our heritage and His eternal legacy.

Human Warranty


Etched into the soul’s fine print
should be the motto “Handle with Care”;
but Man’s nature to ignore instruction
is manifested in Life’s disrepair.

To have God’s Word in written form
could be viewed as a “Human Warranty”,
where divine ground rules for all
has abundance in the best that Life can be.

If I Were


If I were…
truly illuminated, what would you see?
Could the brightness of Christ fully shine
and the persona of me disappear?

If I were…
gifted, in other unknown ways.
Would I be able to discover them
or would I choose to deny them anyway?

If I were…
blessed, beyond Earthly needs.
How much of myself would I be willing to share,
besides just money and possessions?

If I were…
eloquent, in my verbose speech.
Would I be able to teach anything
and would anyone want to listen?

If I were…
God, as Satan imagined.
Would I give people choice
and have them risk damnation?

Human Behavior


It’s hard to extol the merits of mankind
and to lavish excessive praise is insane;
recognize the gamut of vain emotion
and treatment of our brothers that’s inhumane.

The natural nature of man is hardly good –
Proof is found in our vocabulary;
despite incredible accomplishments of this world,
poor relationships of man to extremes are still carried.

Our literature and news is littered
with ugly views of crime and hate.
For brief review of the damage perpetuated,
let’s take time to reiterate.

There’s slavery, incest, murder, torture,
greed, rape, hatred, genocide, racism,
bigotry, fear, starvation, thievery,
lasciviousness and terrorism.

Uncaring predators have always existed,
unable to overcome the evil within.
Such conditions show our need for a loving God,
to triumph over the presence and affects of sin.

Lord, You Are…


Lord, You are my strength,
whenever I’m completely weak.
You are the spiritual delight
in Whom I only seek.

Lord, You are my morning light
that’s shining above the mountain peaks.
You are my hungering desire –
For each day of every week.

Lord, You are my vigilant Father
over earthly trials through which I eke.
Please keep me mindful of Your Word,
so my attitude remains… humble and meek.

The Bridegroom Cometh


Preparations by the Groom have been completed;
He joyfully awaits the day
that marks the remainder of eternity
when the Church shall be swept away.

He has created a wondrous place
where rows of mansions are perfectly aligned.
Angels will sing beautiful songs
announcing souls’ arrival; including yours and mine.

Despite imperfections of His bride,
the Lord daily intercedes with heartfelt prayer.
The celestial wedding feast shall take place –
Have you received your invitation, to be present there?

Unfinished Is…


Unfinished is the fine tuning of me,
as I perform in this human drama,
which is covered by a spiritual mystery.

Participating without a script,
I’m stumbling forward in a lifelong excursion,
although I’m not fully equipped.

In this paradise, that’s known as Earth,
I’m a curious child of wonderment
and working towards my supernatural rebirth.

Despite my growth of understanding,
I will always be an adolescent boy of His –
Forever dependent on God (while I’m here living).

Unfinished is the beauty of my tapestry
until I can achieve the final conclusion
that is… Permanently me.
