I love you times smiles, germs, and cents. I love you times miles, moons, and dents. times ages, awnings, and atoms. plus every booger and star ever formed, and each laughter note. plus yawns, pebbles, and fur. times each thread, molecule, and memory–I love you!
fire bulb bursts,
blossoming in the east
like frost-licked crocuses
majenta, violet, floral
dripping and dreaming
crisp, pure tweets pierce solitude,
calling dusty sleepers:
enthralled with her beauty
with His bride.
and the king will desire your beauty.
laughter sings dormant
under silent sorrow skin
listen, love, look up
A poem prayer for people today–people you and people me. People us. People not us. People all. Singing together to the Maker of people. People: Designed to dance. Made to praise. People = lost outside the original design. People us cannot be found until we’re lost. We find our life when we lose ourselves in the Conductor of creation.
“have you felt the tug
the longing to be who you truly are
you try try try try try try try try
yet in all your try-ing
you end up on the floor
“the Bible says all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God
the Bible says the wages of sin is death
(don’t take my word, get into the Word yourself).”
“if sin leads to death, is there any way out?
is there a lifeline? hope? HeLp??!!?
(I need help…)”
“there is a Way:
He loves you so He died your death so you could
“CRIKEY COOKIES. come again?!?!!!
so, you’re saying, I TOTALLY offended the King of the UNIVERSE who knows everything I
and He is JUST so He’s gotta judge which means I’m totally DEAD,
and there was NOTHING I could do about it???”
“BUT! (biggest but ever) God loves me! so He took my place! right?”
“correct. believe in Jesus. we’re saved by grace through faith. salvation is a free gift. what do you do with a gift?”
“regift to my great aunt, Flowita!! love her! she’s a professional fruitcake baker”
“??? well, usually you just open it, and enjoy it.”
“Oh, WoW! thank you Jesus!
AHHhhhhHhhhhHhH!!!!!!!!” *breakdancing and olympic singing into the sunset*

gorilla boogers & planet pinball
hairy cemeteries, centimeters of history sliced
like rock revealing fossil, disappeared guts and brain grease.
you only take this next step
careful, tread up, chin up, pull up yourself
we’re all in a ditch dump
waiting to be saved
the dungeon door’s open, the debt’s paid. you only gotta take the next step called faith.

Glorious and holy. Infinite yet intimate, loving clay and dust like us
Climb a ladder to the stars You named
Each hair on my head numbered
heart palpitations patter pitter as earth shatters into 8,000,001 pot shards
tectonic plates broken
Son of Man broken on a tree for us
today tomorrow forever
better than yesterday with You.
ending disguised by distraction
slumbering society: WAKE!
factions say this
denomination say that
tick tock time’s out
will you agree now?
Jesus is Lord
His love can bring you on board,
en route to eternity with a King whose majesty
outshines all light & bright
too beautiful to say
too awesome to contain
Creator, Sustainer, I can know You–for real?? For real. For REAL!!!
each breath I enter
each exhale surrender
in Your gaze.
