"Die, Mysterious"

I received today a gift
Thoughtful student
Purchased it with thrift

Addendum to my collection
Many ‘hedrons
For randomized selection

A spin like gimbals
Yields one of ten
Markedly peculiar symbols

Asked around but no one knows
“Maybe Hebrew?” says one
“Certainly not Egypt’s hieros”

Hours of searching low to high
Finally! Conundrum solved—
Numbers from the land of Thai

"The Jesus Question"

Where will you hide?
His question demands answer

Often, we deny the already learned:
 Deity enfleshed
Often, we forget the already revealed:
 “You are the Christ, son of the living God”
Often, we don’t see the already dawned

Use more than eyes, ears, fingers, mind
Spirit calls unto spirit
And deep to deep

You must answer,
There and then or
Here and now:
 Alpha and Omega?
 Triviality for others to consider?
 Insane “prophet” no rationale can decipher?

Almost out of time
Make your decision

"For Fingerprints"

I cannot see

Sacred glass suddenly marred
Translucent obstacle in vision’s path

Tempted to alarm

Remember the source:
Bouncy, yea, flouncy,
Post cleansing,
Towel wrapped,
Flying smiley greeting

Forensic evidence
One of the begotten
Case closed:
Joy of boy

I can see

"For Cardinals"

Wild garland on Christmas spruce
Flying reminders of new life soon
Red crests through winters long
Down the lane
Leading us in song
