Let Love Plant Seed

 

Just what is love, what’s true love’s source?

How does it come to be?

What is its plan, what is its course?

What can it do for me?

 

What is the truth of love’s domain?

How does your answer sound?

Has love’s caress become in vane?

Upon your fallowed ground

 

A moment’s thought, a humble word

We hear and speak each day

But once revealed and truly heard

Its power can all dismay

 

Let love lay wide our arms and doors

Whatever fools may say

Upholding God’s eternal laws

Will surely win the day

 

Love is The Way to endless life

To streets of purest gold

The Way to end all foolish strife

The root to joy untold

 

Love is the path through Heaven’s gate

God’s chosen cup of wine

His daily food upon life’s plate

The gift from Christ divine

 

Love is the seed to endless peace

The fruit of selfless choice

For tortured souls the swift release

Who’ll hearken to its voice

 

Conflicts and wars will bend their knee

Through love; cold hearts will burn

The meanest spirit could be free

To give it in return.....

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.
