Knees Bowed

I was confused, by asphalt bruised, As his life oozed, his pleas refused. Now my police bow a knee, My first response says “I disagree – That very posture took a life.” Yet now it somehow calms the strife A soothing balm for grieving souls, Instead of heaping burning coals. I start to perceive aContinue reading “Knees Bowed”

DREAMS – Part 2. Decoding the Communique

Here’s my current understanding of the dream in the previous post: I live in the country, so my house being in a subdivision is an oddity. Look for those in dreams. Consider proximity as a concept, given the current times. The house on the right is marked by panic and furtive, unsuccessful attempts at self-protection.Continue reading “DREAMS – Part 2.

Dreams – Part 1. “The Secret Counsel”

I’ve been walking on a mystifying path the last couple of years. As a teen, I read a book called Your Dreams, God’s Forgotten Gift. It made the claim that God is a communicating God.

All are equal. That is why twenty years ago is as yesterday. A mite isContinue reading “NO “BIG” OR “SMALL” IN THE SPIRITUAL”

Delilah Lulls Samson

How strong are you, Samson? Gifted ruler. Foretold and anointed. Unbeaten. Mighty conqueror. Slayer of soldiers by the hundreds, Fearsome Destroyer. Till lulled on her lovely lap, Where you have no business being, You sell your soul to the temptress And Delilah destroys you, Fearsome Destroyer, With her guile, and her nagging. And your full permission.Continue reading “Delilah Lulls Samson”

You’re Bleeding Out

Your personal defense bubble Swelled to the size of a wrestling ring. You are catching punches That I’m not throwing. Bleeding from old wounds I did not inflict. Where I extend an olive branch, You perceive me brandishing a menacing thornbush. Your unseen assailant wails unpredictable blows. The maniac pummels you mercilessly. My outstretched arms AreContinue reading “You’re Bleeding Out”
