Start Talking.....

It’s good with God to talk a while

Standing, or on one’s knees

To feel one’s soul relax and smile

And set one’s heart at ease


Alive; to witness death no more

Aware, no more asleep

Knowing, feeling life’s greatest cure

By grace gratis to keep


Sitting oft times coffee in hand

At ease within a chair

Knowing to know we understand

Life’s deeper things to share


Secrets one’s never heard before

In shadows, eons bound

Till stillness, unlocked truth’s door

With answers quite profound


How great it is God’s face to seek

To know it’s not in vain

Awesome to witness Jesus speak

Audibly loud and plain


To see visions crystal clear

To dream of things unknown

The King of kings clearly hear

Reigning on Heaven’s throne


Accept these words, these truths I write

Believe and do the same

Surrender to God, walk in the light

Leaving behind your shame


Accept you are a sinful soul

Accept grace from above

Jesus will cleanse will make you whole

To live in the arms of love…..

About the Poet
I never wrote a word of poetry in my life. Till the day Jesus took my hand and touched my soul.....I invite your response. However most poems are not about me! Very few are. But the feed-back good, bad or indifferent is always desired. Not meant to offend, but I write about many things in many a guise. Of life, death, lost, found, saved, backsliders, new comers, repenting souls, doubting hearts, heathens, Christians, fire, water, Satan's daughter, wallowing in sin, saved, made sound walking in Light, graceful righteous. Suffering, ecstatic, bored, excited, sad, delighted, Sick, well, lame, able, living, dying, etc. etc. etc. Writing about anything, everything and everyone as the spirit leads. All meant to reveal, waken, revive, encourage, shame, help. Gladden, pick up, exalt, portrait, liberate. Again over 99% of my work is not about me. Although at times I write as though I were or am. Speaking e.g. in the first person. This is quite common even in the bible itself. Prophets speak of themselves, then God speaks, again the prophet, then God......Quite often it's difficult to distinguish whom it is that at any given time is speaking or narrating.
