In sleepless nights
Your voice I hear
A gentle whisper
By my ear

You speak of love
You speak of peace
Of vision found
And fears that cease… continued ->

And flew away

Smoulders there as living coal… continued ->

Falling from the sky

Unsure the reason why… continued ->

Presents of mind
A single moment, defined
With heaven aligned
A prayer… continued ->

Wrap like bands
Sheltering strands
Hold in commands… continued ->

From loneliness my heart defend
A moment sit and with me spend
To the present help me attend… continued->

While darkness I defy… continued ->

The Painter Reigns

God, do you paint the day?
Splash the colours for our play?
What about the bluest Jay?
Did you smile on his making day?

God, do you paint the light?
Bounce it off the moon just right?
Give us shadows, darker night?
Fireflies to ease our fright? … continued -> Includes spoken word recording.

The Body, Mind, and Soul

“I’m tired,” said the Body,
to its brother, Mind.
“The pain within this shell
leaves me so confined.”

“I’m tired,” said the Mind,
to its sister Soul.
“The heaviness I feel
threatens my control.” … continued -> Includes spoken word recording.

Unbelieving Prayer

Stand on the threshold
the confessional of prayer.
Standing never kneeling

no one is really there.
Recite the memorized
without feeling, love or care… continued ->

He Keeps Me

I asked the Lord to keep me brave
Hold my chin above the wave

Lend me strength to tread the line
Close my mouth to deadly brine

Whether rescue comes for me
Or in death, I am set free

I asked the Lord to keep me brave
As I swim above the grave … continued -> Includes spoken word recording.

A trail of empty footsteps
all around is whiteness new
in those empty footsteps
are all my thoughts of you

In the softest flakes
that drift on breath to earth
I hear lilting whispers
reminding me of worth… continued -> Includes spoken word recording.

Fragile breath
a prayer tonight.

Shallow fighting for life.

Love Is

something done.
An action filled emotion.
Understood
by not a one… continued –> Includes spoken word recording.

Joy

Found in simple spaces
when lights have dimmed to ease
weariness of day from shoulders prone.

In the morning beams
where radiance sings
reserving stage for feathered accompaniment notes… continued –> Includes spoken word recording.
