Outer Shell


arm and foot
three foot bubble
outer shell
densely imbound
seeking release
intrinsic kernel
yet to be found

Another Day

Another Day

Another day scrapped with its demons
having folded in upon themselves
Creased and cornered tightly
tucked yet still wrinkled
in just the right places

Another creeping sunset 
arrives unbeckoned wandering
carrying whimpering westerly winds
Sighing, seeking for the open window
searching to crowd the senses
with a gale of its own jasmine blossom

Another flawed day
trapped in its own domain
a montage of pain, of quiet song
joy mingled with suffering
of sweet harmony, broken melody
a granite heart carved rightly

Another day to kindle the kettle
until all the worries burn
whistle another day
summon deep pleasures
whisking the soul away
in ample delight

Another day taken flight
alighted on mercy's tree
transfused with satisfaction 
herbal remedy intravenously 

A refreshing supply of reliable content
like peppermint flavored veins
with cotton candy coated walls
jubilant flow now takes the reins

Three Dimensional

Three Dimensional

One line runs
on a narrow path
as far as the eye can see
until it broadens with breadth
advancing widely
stopping so hastily
continuing upward
bounding with height
surging onward
ever so vertically
til it slowly dips
diving downard
plunging with depth
still growing
moving hastening
its dimensions
ever so cubically

A Prayer to experience the Dimensions of Christ

Dear Lord,

I pray that I would not be a one-dimensional seeker.
A one liner, lacking breadth.  Or even two-dimensional merely.
But Lord, with others may we experience you as the breadth, the length, the height and the depth; corporately, unashamedly without preference like a three-dimensional cube.  Only then will our experience of Christ be complete. 


(Inspired by Ephesians 3:18)

Wise Trees

Inspired by two massive, aged, wise trees I noticed on a beautiful evening.

Wise Trees

On the nightside, parked
tucked in the shadow
I took courage at seeing
your gorgeous crown,
dense dimensions,
fullness of wisdom
of your elegant roots.  
Your presence 
so charming
draws me closer 
within the limits 
of your 
massive frondescence 
please fold me closer
wrap me tightly
with your wise 
winged boughs
I beg you, branch deeply 
into the chambers 
of my heart and 
fill me with your

Wholly Encompassed

Seeds sown
in tilled hearts
taking root;
gaining ground
seeking room
gathering fruit
of mind, emotion
trailing arm, limb
each extremity
head to toe
holding fast tendrils grip
til blessed immobility
wholly encompassed
slithering, sliding
in full poetic bloom

The King's Roots

The King's choice seed has been planted
His royal germ is well known
Full growth its full inclination
Into majestic garden, stately home

The life within, stirred demanding
Constant perfection, glory replete
as gem-laden rhizomes drink ripe earth
sinking plumb deep, wayward creep

Its uncomeliness has now been broken
From cracked shell it obtains escape
Pivoting to and fro developing
With wiggle room taking shape
