  • He Is Risen

    • Published: March 29, 2024

    in Poems about Spirituality

    Imprisoned fast I lay: long years of pain;
    Yet hope and joy live still: they will not die.
    Was I, or was I not, the one to blame?
    There is no answer, even from on High.

    in Falling in Love Poems

    As waves crash into foam upon Earth's shores,
    And all their driving force dissolves in peace,
    So do my self-driv'n prides meet your resource,
    Which bids their angry heaving surges cease;

    in Special Friend Poems

    A true friend's like a sunny day
    Of light, and warmth, and cheer,
    That heals with hope along life's way,
    Dispelling every fear.

  • The Mustard Tree Parable (Mark 4:30-32)

    • Published: April 20, 2024

    in Poems about Spirituality

    'Twas just a tiny seed, smallest of all,
    That lay unnoticed on life's busy track;
    Trod underfoot into the dark, the soil,
    And not expecting ever to come back.

    in Hope Poems

    If you could see beyond your weeping tears,
    To where the sunshine sparkles once again,
    Then would those drops of pain be free from fears,
    And you'd recall that gardens need the rain.

  • Jesus - A Life's Love

    This is the first sonnet I wrote, in 1999. I had a nervous breakdown in 1978, at age 25, and experienced an outpouring of God's love, joy and acceptance upon my life in 1983. I married in 1991 and soon after received the (new) gift of poetry. It is mostly about the hope and gifts God has brought into my life after the blow of the breakdown. There is for me no complete healing, but I am still learning how God loves all of us so much, and wants us to share that love in the ways He teaches us.

  • The Son Forever Shines!

    • Published: March 5, 2024

    in Poems about Spirituality

    The dewy garden greets the gentle dawn,
    The birds sing joyful praises for this Morn,
    The Earth awakes, and somehow, life is new,
    The grass seems greener, and the sky more blue.
