Serenity IS…

Kingman Wash in Arizona. Iphone snap

Crystal jewel amid desert rigidity,
Exposed in willing transparency.
Deep tonal blue your reflective canopy,
Your icy December embrace still entices me.

My fingers playfully seek
Expectant through chilled caress,
Revitalize me.
I feel the settled stones,
You and time have smoothed diligently.
And respectfully I acknowledge,
You haven’t always known such serenity.
Rugged unpolished rocks,
Droughts and waters raging.
Yet I know and remember when trials oppress,
Serenity IS, and when absent, will again be…

God Wants My Time…

image

Aquarenity…

image

Shallowly below the surface
Water gently swaying from movement
Liquid veil covers surrendered ears
Altering, yet not tainting the music

Piano keys stroked with care
Gentle runs, emphasis upon each note
Volume increasing, tempo slows
All heard as echoes under watery cloak

Seek From Within…

image

Look within,
What you seek is there.
Awaiting discovery,
To meet you at “truly aware”.

You’re always looking to the world,
To quench your desire for peace.
From the noise and chatter,
Finding only temporary relief.

You already have all you need,
The fruit of The Spirit is ever present.
Joy, peace, and self control,
Illuminated opalescence.

Until the world’s illusory solutions,
Are abandoned for the truth inside.
Your peace will remain surface-affixed,
Internal endowments offer a peace…infinitely multiplied.

Illuminated Moment…

image

Flickering glow, circular ceiling projection,
Light piercing the darkened room.
Soft flames filled with warmth,
Dancing with the music’s melodic tune.

Enhancing the moment,
Absorbing emotions to purify.
Negativity, and fear subjected to fire,
Pain burned to indemnify.

A trinity of light to anchor,
Honoring The Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
Accompanying me in the moment I know,
True light and warmth, ever present…

Amid The Storm…

image

Above the ominous slate,
Is a sky of blue.
A brilliant yellow sun,
The storm cannot subdue.

The atmosphere below,
Makes good on all it’s threats.
Thunder and lightning rage,
Traumatic winds cause distress.

The tempest’s fury eventually fades,
Calm and order begin to emerge.
From the brokenness and suffering,
We we’re required to endure.

The assaulting storms in life,
Which seek our defeat.
Are blanketed by calm and light,
By warmth and tranquility.

When daylight’s diminished by gray.
When nights’ darkness is shrouded in pitch,
The sun and the stars, the moon on high,
Piercing light they will emit.

Ever reminding us of God’s presence,
Amid our trials and pains.
Through gale, rain, or flood,
God’s love always remains…

Coveted Silence…

Image
Is it really you?
Nice to make your acquaintance 
Your true nature before me
Coveted silence…

Once you were
Heavy and overwhelming
Deafening sound
Giving way to torment
No peace to be found
I’d fill the stifling vicinity 
With polluted distractions
Trying to block my “quiet”
With false presentations

Can you hear that?
Nothingness
Void of chaos 
Desirable emptiness
The incessant chatter 
Has stopped for a time
And I’m not haunted by 
That which I’ve left behind

Your thick abrasive tendencies
Have faded some
And your once hidden nature
Is coming undone
My heartbeat is confined 
To my chest
No longer blaring in fear
While I’m at rest
You’re accompanied
by a sense of calm
The threats of the world 
Seem to take pause
Is this what others know?
Will I continue to unravel your power?
I never knew it was possible 
To quiet my mind at will

We have much to discover, you and I 
I hope this relationship continues to grow
I seek to stroll with you by placid waters
In sun and rain, wind and snow
