"A Moment Of Awe"

Socrates would readily agree:
Behold! What Beauty!

As she lies in repose,
Here is what I suppose:

To capture this moment,
Parade it before the world,
Enraptured that She has been found!

Then, upon seeing the ring,
I realize:

I already have

"Hail To The King"

Hail to the King, He who chose us ere creation!
Hail to the King: we’ll worship Him, one and all!
Hail to the King as we rest in His salvation:
Humble fulfillment of His great, holy call

Yours is the name by which all men are sav├Ęd
This you have done, if only we’ll believe
Hail to the one who descended from King David!
Hail to the Almighty! Hail to our King!

"(Beached) White"

Foamy waves breaking
Puffy clouds floating
‘Coaster knuckles gripping
Ocean spray happily splashing

Distant boats sailing
Chattering gulls eating
—bloated bird—pooping
Carefree teeth happily flashing

"Seashore Crescendo"

Wind whispering
Happy clapping waves
Ebb and flow of traffic
Rock and reggae blaring
Laughter of children playing
Attention starved gulls chattering
Thumping hearts of lovers young and lovers old

"It's The Law"

Twinkle, twinkle, lights ahead
Could be orange or blue and red
It’s not really worth a frown
Just move over or slow down
Twinkle, twinkle, lights ahead:
Now the workers shall not dread!

"The Sword Of Daniel"

Sun-scorched
World
Of
Rebellious
Deeds,
Offering
Falsehoods,
Death,
And
Necromancy
In
Equal
Levels

By sword,
By flame,
By captivity,
By spoil they fell

Persia, once lush and green,
Is now, in the desert, unseen

Sin sat enthroned
Selling souls, dealing stones

Babylon the great is defeated
Once for all, king unseated

Daniel’s sword:
Jesus’ word

"Father's Day V"

Slept in late
Wrapped surprises
Superhero boys
Great things in little packages
Heart touched by sermon
Nap
Brief road trip
Home cooked meal
Slobber doggie ball
Naked belly flops
Twinkle, twinkle little smiles

Tears of joy

"Be Afraid"

Be afraid.
I shall not
sleep well tonight,
for I will
remember
my sins from today
and
the wrath of God:
He consumes
my every thought.
Is
Jesus
truly
my savior?
Is
He?
Yes!
He
is
my savior!
Truly,
Jesus
is
my every thought.
He consumes
the wrath of God
and
my sins from today.
Remember!
For I will
sleep well tonight.
I shall not
be afraid!
