A Cup

Standard

LORD, You make me

and You break me

i’m fragile glass

and i’m not in tact

there are sharp cracks

that could be used

to cut and attack

please, put me back together

don’t use crazy glue

use that thing that they do in Japan

use Your ancient ways

to fill each place

with Light and Grace

like resin in gold

a beauty that holds and

makes me a useful cup again

a mosaic of what has been

and once Your Art is done

don’t fill me up

but shelf me long enough

to feel the emptiness

to sit alone and

feel the unknown

and learn from

the new lines

that make me Yours twice

content just to be held

in The Potter’s hands

and if in time

as You see purpose

in Your design

perhaps pour in

something joyful

something warming

something worth holding

to be gladly sipped

sipped from Heaven

Burn

Standard



The freedom

Of a candlestick 

Is none 

But to burn

And burn it does

Waxing 

Melting

Wasting

It’s life away

Only one passion

The flame

Giving light

Sparking interest 

Glowing 

In wee hours

Cutting darkness

A small warmth

On a cold 

Lonely night 

A singular beauty 

Upon a pedestal

No choices

But to burn

Window Soul

Standard

If you’d

Slowly let me

Bring you ’round,

You will

Smile again.

Perhaps you faded

For awhile,

But you will

Shine ahead.

There’s a window

In every soul;

We each exchange

A closer view.

Though you’ve struggled

And it’s turned cold,

Warmth will return as

Sun filters through.

Pick up your feet.

Chin up too.

Look into my eyes.

Remember me?

I still love you.

September Sunrise

Standard

photo 5
standing on The Rock
listening to The Sun rising
my heart calmly singsphoto 1

the changing colours
and the passing sea lions
i pause to see Life

The Sun takes it’s time
for The Light cannot be rushed
warmth penetrates slow

the moon’s reflection
bows to true Light’s glory
crowning the morning

creation whispers
be still and hear nature’s voice
speak the things of God

Once upon a time...

Hide Nothing

Standard

Dancing with skeletons
Naming the elephants
Living life truthful
Open and beautiful
Nothing to hide
All exposed by the light

“This is the verdict: Light has come into the world, but people loved darkness instead of light because their deeds were evil. Everyone who does evil hates the light, and will not come into the light for fear that their deeds will be exposed. But whoever lives by the truth comes into the light, so that it may be seen plainly that what they have done has been done in the sight of God.”
~John 3:19-21
