Who?

"Who do you say me to be?" Matthew 16:15

Father,

Jesus?

Kingdom's First Seed;
Mankind's Spring;
Salvation's Seal;

The Artist
Who pigments our souls
With His Love.

Jesus?

Whose Eyes never burn out the flame;
Whose Brow never wears despair's woe;
Whose Words never field a desert.

Jesus?

The gnaw of self-gluttony
Is just not in Him; nor,
The soot of age's ashes
Just will not cover Him; nor,
In death's dust ditch
Will He ever be.

Why?

Because,
He is the Son of the Living God!

Therefore,
He is a Living God.

About the Poet
I am 79 years of age. For the past nine years I have been retired, after forty years, from the field of alcoholism and drug abuse in New York City. I am married and we have two grown sons and two grand-sons. My life changed through a grace-experience in 1967. Writing Christian prayers is a particular interest of mine. This came about by a growing awareness of the spiritual in recovery from addictions. I choose, intellectually and emotionally, to believe the Triune God of the Sared Scriptures as my Healer.
