The Reluctant Warrior

Oceans 2031

No one ever told him,

he would need the mountains,

the wholeness and healing,

of peace,

the Creator breathing.

No one ever told him,

there would be explosions,

tearing the sky,

battles raging, bloodied swords,

his Queen imploding.

He fights on,

only because he has to,

he would rather live in a tree,

sleep on some rocks,

while the sky is healed, by clean water.

He picks up his sword anyway,

the shield,

armed with words,

and a clean heart,

he fights.

No turning back,

no confession of cowards,

He will live, in the mountains,

because the mountains live,

in him.

Candles

two candles from indianpublicmedia

All you really wanted, was some time,

I came home after days of working,

and what did I say,

after kissing your cheek?

“I have to write this story”,

“I haven’t blogged all day”, I said.

“I’ll just be 30 minutes”, I said.

Two hours later, I was still at the table,

writing my heart out,

while you had gone to the bedroom,

to light candles,

waiting.

We were supposed to watch a movie,

or that British mystery series,

but I felt stupid,

when I saw the candles.

The fire had gone out.

Later we were next to each other,

in bed, alone,

back to back.

You were wondering,

about my heart,

I was dreaming of ways,

to make it up,

a dinner out? the Greek place?

roses.

All you really wanted was some time.

Please forgive me.

I need to live it,

instead,

of just writing about it.

Moonlight

Oceans 171

Why do our problems seem so small,

when we walk in the moonlight?

Is it the sun reflecting?

or the wings on our hearts?

Is it our two hands,

joined together?

Or the embrace,

as I lean over to kiss,

your cheek.

Yes, and there is so much more,

that strengthens us.

I love walking with you,

I wish every night,

were a moonlight night.

Sacred Sky

Oceans 807

Is there any reason,

for the sky not to be sacred?

not in a worship way,

but leading us,

to the One,

pointing us,

to realize we are loved,

accepted,

walking on clouds,

one step closer,

to knowing.

Strength in the sun,

hope in the light,

and always new.

Is there any reason,

for the sky not to be sacred?

Questions

Oceans 266

If I told You how I feel,

would You get angry?

I don’t want to be a seeker,

anymore,

I feel stupid sometimes,

looking for strength,

in the mountains, a river,

listening, understanding the song,

of the waves.

I need deeper roots,

stronger faith,

and more answers,

fewer questions,

more love,

living in the now,

instead of,

my head in the clouds.

As the waves began to sing,

He said, “My son,

keep trusting, keep writing,

keep reading the Book of Psalms,

just be who you are,

and who, you were meant to be.”

One Year Ago

Mountains and Rivers 396

 

I am celebrating one full year of blogging! Wahoo! A great big thank you to everyone!

Here is a poem:

It was one year ago,

I began seeing,

the value of art,

the value of people,

love unconditionally,

and the Creator living.

I knew some things,

but lacked the love,

still recovering from false doctrine,

you encouraged me,

strength,

from Hong Kong,

Tokyo and Korea,

from beautiful Wales,

Great Britain, Canada,

France, and Liechtenstein???

yes Liechtenstein,

Then too there was Oklahoma,

and yes Alabama,

I can never forget India,

Pakistan, and many others.

We encourage one another,

and for that,

I am forever grateful,

brothers and sisters,

from the bottom of my heart,

thank you,

for being on this journey with me.

From our house to yours, PEACE, and every good blessing!

Summer Breeze

Mountains and Rivers 318

I will never forget,

our first time in the woods,

was He speaking to us?

summer breeze,

gently whispering,

in His presence,

we were bold,

to declare our love,

sitting on the bench,

chipmunks playing,

a blue jay interrupting us,

loud objections,

but sworn to secrecy,

in our holy moment,

of holding hands,

quiet hearts,

the silence of healing,

flooding with love,

as the summer breeze,

was gently whispering.
