Drop of Awakening

Autumn leaves are falling
In puddles of nights rain
A damp chill blows the wind
A dreary sky now reins

Trees shake off nights shower
With sprinkles from above
A drop christens the forehead
Surprising gift of love

A cross found in the signing
Renewed commitment made
A soaking in of Spirit
Anointed blessing prayed

Song of angles calling
Drawing souls retreat
Deep inspired dwelling
My God and soul now meet

Blessings now are falling
In showers of Your grace
Warming Spirit guides
Hope reins in this place

Language of the Soul

Through Spirit of creation
Speaks language of the soul
Past all human senses
Releasing of control

A practice that is crafted
By Spirit blessed within
Glimpse within the moment
The flow of light begins

A sense of Spirit calling
A touch found in the now
A basking in the dwelling
That emptiness allows

Wisp of breath in catching
Of voice of the beyond
Stitched within the passing
Connection of the bond

Words past our describing
Touching soul in deep
Through humble empty being
Your voice in our soul seeps

Prayer of God’s Will

May God’s will be my prayer
A prison key releasing fear
Let all my trust rest in you
For you my God, hold my soul near

Pure foolishness for me to brag
In my accomplishments
Or to seek as treasure own
The world’s false compliments

Let me follow in Your Word
With strength to do what’s right
When I fall and sin is mine
Turn to Your forgiving light

For you are love and love I know
For me is what is best
Struggles, strife or challenges
Comfort, joy or rest

In fragile balance my life lays
The realization all is grace
Whatever is Your will to be
My grateful heart embrace

Hues

Masterpiece of sky
Stops soul in its track
Pausing to acknowledge
Your beauty that attracts

Blue and orange hues
Mix in violet waves
Light arises new
Transforming to amaze

Clouds roll in the scene
Painted in new light
Sun bursts in Your glory
Singing message bright

Transfixed in awe of sight
Amazing portrait drawn
Etched in blinding view
Ways of You are spawned

In these moment few
Gives view of day in store
Let me bow in praise
Your beauty we adore

Abba

A name that’s so holy
We can’t even say
Word of our Fathers
Referred to Yahweh

His Son to us sent
Beloved of all
Teach us to pray
To break down the wall

He began with two words
Through knowledge He had
Connection was made
To call God, “our Dad”

Dwell with the treasure
The gift of His name
Reside in the soul
Of intimate claim

So live as His child
Trust in His hand
Share laughter and life
By His side we stand

Words

There’s power in the word
Of worldly and divine
Bonding or division
The choice in will of mine

The world says build up me
Of the things I’ve done
To put me in the right
Unworthy to be shunned

Divine says listen first
In building of the bond
Compassion in the heart
Healing of beyond

When left to my devices
I drift into the low
Our Jesus opened door
God’s grace to us bestow

Blessed with greater calling
Of heaven to this earth
A conduit of healing
Your purpose in me birth

A light within our soul
Enflames Your Word of love
When focused on Your grace
Lifts Word to way above

Let love be on my tongue
Poured out from deep of soul
Blessings to be spread
Your holy Word extol

On The Streets

Men on the streets
Begging their way
No shame in their actions
Their wounds on display

Of love that was broken
Compassion not shared
Their souls were not nurtured
As nobody cared

They all have a story
They want you to hear
If someone will listen
If you will come near

They all are survivors
In world that is fallen
Black is the darkness
Can’t see who is calling

A simple few moments
Of meeting a need
A glimpse of Your light
The starving You feed

Please show me the way
With a genuine heart
To connect with this soul
And your love to impart

Let judgment not enter
Acceptance he see
For we know in our hearts
I could easily be he

For You love this child
He’s precious to you
Let him lift up his eyes
By changing his view

I will not change him
His wounds not I mend
With a glimpse of Your light
A message can send

A piece of the path
May salvation he see
Blessed as your servant
Connecting are we

Night Still Reins

It is of the time
Before the sun awakes
When the night still reins
Before horizon breaks

In silence of unknown
Stillness flows in air
Breathing in its peace
Drawing Spirit near

In emptiness of now
Of busyness not known
Transition is to be
Hope in light is shone

Of darkness to be filled
When dew is touched with grace
Hold moment in the soul
See Spirit fill this space

Knitted in the silence
Of the nights remains
Mornings preparation
With path of each contains

Dwelling in the hollow
Of emptiness of world
Peace of God now reins
Fulfilled by will unfurled

The Great Door

I stand before Your great door
Hesitation in the wind
A drawing’s led me to this place
The answer dwells within

No pressure to the handle turn
The decision is all mine
I reach out, Your power felt
Who knows just what I’ll find

The Spirit flows as light pours out
A home is felt within
A moment’s pause, as silence stills
Where do we begin?

As I approach, Your presence fills
My soul is home herein
Love rushes forth, with open arms
On knees, I fall within

Within the deep, the Spirit swirls
Beyond this world, I see
The outside fades, my God loves me
For all eternity
