       The Bright Morning Star.

A whisper in the dark of night

A rustle in the trees

God’s Living Stream of Fire & Light

His Shadow no one sees


Life’s Water from Salvation’s Well

The Cleanser of man’s soul

The Guide from off the road to hell

The Rock who’ll never roll


The Thunder Storm the Cooling Breeze

The Ship that cannot sink

The Clout in those on bended knees

Who’ve had God’s Cup to drink


Who through His Word have second birth

Who’s faith is proven true

Who’s trust is not with man on earth

Nor that one’s eye can view


Yet here and there and everywhere

He hovers like a Dove

Longing with them so much to share

Who prove in Christ their love


The Holy Ghost cannot be won

But comes in truth and grace

Present today through God’s true Son

Yet no one sees His face


To chase The Wind will only fools

The Gift of God is free

Where all who keep Salvation’s rules

His face one day will see


While yet Life’s Flame we may receive

God’s Bright & Morning Star

We need but Jesus Christ believe

And come just as we are…..

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.
