A Harvest of Love

All alone, yet there he was, knelt beside another. Speaking soft, touching slight, trying not to be a bother. Reaching out, screams of pain, in a way he felt so distant. Carry on, hold on more, it’s but another instant Hours drag on, the dusk is gone, and dawn begins to rise The stars now […]

Do It Unto the Least of These

He clasped the coal, still glowing red, from off his wooden floor And placed it back within the flame. A knock was at his door. T’was dark outside and very late, and the snow fell thick and hard. He knew not of a single soul who would trek across his yard. He cautiously stood from […]

The Wise Man

I threw away my fish one day, And walked behind a man. His steps were clear and deep and sure Upon the burning sand. He walked right by, spoke scant a word, But drew me still somehow. I followed close behind the man As wonder would allow. It wasn’t long before I saw The depth […]

Tokens of a Tired Man

There was a man of youth and such who wore the dress of teens, Of T-shirts, runners, baseball caps, and endless pairs of jeans. His skin was smooth; his hands were fresh, just dirty from some play. Energetic, so he was, and full of zest each day. His hair was wild, and quite untamed; his […]

Ode to Mary

Honey sweet, cotton soft, Snowy fair, mountain top, Ocean blue, angel song, Evening still, sunset long. Springtime red, summer green, Autumn cool, winter clean, Sunshine warm, coastal breeze, Maple shade, swaying trees. Blackened brown, hazel eyes, Snowy skin, quite the prize, Warming heart, thinking of, Never hurt, ever love.

Dreams Are Small

In land of stars the blackness rules and light is slave to dark. A land where stars are forced to stay where night has e’er them parked. The stars are small, their skies are broad, the space above us vast, Yet we on earth are small as sand and brittle as the glass. Our hopes […]

A Poem For Mary

There was a time within my life whence I was but alone; Whence all the love giv’n to me was ne’er in my heart sown. My heart was open but ever empty, for love ne’er knew me then, And might I try to op’n it more I’d never find a mend. For much a time […]

A Mountain Journey

A metal box encased by forest Held treasure deep inside. Dark as night and cold as steel Yet something did abide. Something big, something warm, And round just like the moon. Something quiet, something known, And like an angel’s tune. And then it’s opened amid the cries And darkness flees away. The humble treasure so […]
