Faux


There are faux furs and jewelry
that have great eye appeal,
and faux cakes and cupcakes
that look very real...

There's lovely trompe l'oeil"
meaning, "to fool the eye",
a life-like technique
artists skillfully apply.

The hand is quicker than the eye
a magician would agree,
and illusionists do tricks
the human eye can't see


People also put on
masks and facades,
but the heart is exposed
by our all seeing God!

Our Father sees thru
disguises and facades
because He is divine
and we can't fool God!

About the Poet
Christian since 1973, widowed in 2007, but by the divine appt. of God, I married a wonderful, godly widower in Oct. 2010. Three grown, married sons and eight grandchildren. My first love is Jesus who inspires my pen, for apart from Him I can do nothing! I desire to honor the Lord and edify readers thru poetry He inspires.
