He's coming after me
Intent upon destroying
Hopes and daring dreams
With taunts and hurts deploying
That I might finally be
Submitted to a fate
Of his askew creation
Upon the Lord, I wait
The truth, one cannot quell
From Living Waters' well
I quench my searching thirst
The last is now the first

Pray Without Ceasing

Prayers lifted
Prayers heard
Prayers pressing
Prayers heard
Prayers screaming
Prayers heard
God will answer
In His time
Not ours
But in His
Alone.  Prayers
Always, always,
Always heard.

Regrets!  I regard the snow
Fallen in frigid freeze
Clinging, gripping obstinately
To sub-zero breath and breeze
Yet, invites a welcome stay
To warmth, to hearth; home and heart
Retreat!  Into the sheltering arms
Of the One who won't depart.

This Moment's Breath

This moment's breath
Noted, how and why
The in then out
of air - necessity
Transforms being
Into otherness
Inhale, exhale
Breathing into wholeness.

Mary's Heart

"Yes," she said
When angel hailed 
as favored one
"Yes," she said
Knowing the world
Stood against her
"Yes," she said
Soul magnifies
The Lord of Lords

All God wills
All God wants
Unity with Him
Nothing else
Will do

I Lay Before You

A teardrop of wax
Shed in the burning
Of flame, aglow
With a yearning
For answered prayer
I lay before You
In the light
All things are new
All is right
