Coincidental Garden (3TC)


Performance wow’s all

Coincidental garden’s

Burgeoning blossoms

Springtime miracles happen

Keep your eyes, heart, wide open

Futile Search (3LT)

Searched for perfect match (naïve, romantic idealist)

Magnifying glass, binoculars, no help (resolute but stupid)

Eyes closed, leapt into fiery passion (ash-covered fool e’er repents)

Some Days Genial

Some days genial

Speaking to strangers as though

Fantasy family

Exuding God’s love, true light

Maybe seeming old-crazy

Somebody has to

Take that kind of risk, offer

Hope of better times

All That Waste (Twiglet)

All that waste…

Trust is precious


Heart spent it

Recklessly, without

Counting cost…

Your self-centered greed

Pervaded every hour

Each ‘transaction’.

Silver, sapphires

Pearls, diamonds set

In gold: kind words

Free, refused me…

Instead, your rage.

Drawstring bag of


Love you trashed.

This loss I hold…

Bereft of dreams and

Purest, coveted

The World As Boat

Is peopled world boat

Commodious, attempting

Channel maneuvers

‘Mid sustainability

Lacking perfectly pristine

Material?┬á It’s

Carrying burdened

Passengers—hungry, angry

Manners forgotten

Wearied by lengthy voyage

Sea’s tumultuous trial…

They long to be free

Of cramped quarters, restrictions

Repetitious tales

Passports may be lost, questioned…

Hopes, incentive: cloudy sky.

Nothing But the Blood

Assiduous task

Soul daily scrubbed, scoured, polished

‘Damn spot’, sin remains

Heart’s will, efforts can’t erase

Only Savior’s blood can cleanse

Mind the Foibles

‘Foible’, soft its sound

“Small weakness in character”*

Seeds may bloom malice

Fervor of Faith

Despite frayed edges

Fervor of faith sustains true

Lighting more candles

While eyeing pungent embers

Hearth fire keeps heart enlivened


Kindles easily

Matchstick of prayer never fails

Awaiting Spirit

Soul stills, hushes for God’s voice

Words which will turn restless tide


“Be assured”, He speaks

“Take courage, I AM is here”

Covenant of love

Establishes dominion

His sovereignty’s promises


Who, what shall I fear?

He called me, set me apart

In His mystery

Kissed sleeping lips with pure taste

Of His Shekinah Glory

Soul’s Ache

Reconnoiter day

Anxious dread tens to ambush

Soul’s ache pleads for ease
