"Baptized Appetizer"

Bored gourd
In salads or alone
Ranch dressing dipper
Flavored water sipper

or sour
Injected, subjected
With burgers or alone
New creation born
Cuke transformed

In the words of Bentley comma T
Lord please, please pickle me

"Learn From The Birds"

Ducks in cold cold water
Never ever bothered

Eagles hunting, soaring
Always seeking, never boring

Penguins lacking wings to fly
Underneath the water dive

Sparrows in His hand
Two for a penny in that land

Ostrich running
Or tail feathers sunning

Chickens squawking
Together flocking

Read the Book
Find the words
Learn the rest
From the birds

Watch them wheel and dive
They rest and yet still fly
Soaring up on rising heat
Ever seeking a bit to eat
They fly so easily
Riding the wind, ever breezily

"If I Measure"

If I measure a line
I discover its

If I measure a square
I discover its

If I measure a box
I discover its

So too is anything
 (and everything)

Save one

One thing
 and one thing only has
   these three
 and one more

If I measure God's love
I discover...

"Archer Of Archers"

I saw a man seated on a mountain
Raining down arrows like a fountain
Arrows sailed but failed to kill
Instead blessings poured forth from the hill

I must have been mistook
So I took a second look
Not just a man I’d glanced
But rather Him, the One they’d lanced

There He sat with bow all bent
Having aimed, His arrows sent
His eye was notorious
His bow was glorious

Hewn of hues, these special seven
Covenant sign from Holy Heaven
Made just right of refracted light
Arrows arrows, piercing the night

His blessings abound like a river
He rains down arrows from His quiver
So lower it, lower your shield
But only to Him should you yield

Speak out your needs as a prayer
You’re the target so be prepared
As sure as love, as swift as a lark
God never ever misses the mark
