Lifes Pearl Of Wisdom.....
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

By Michael P. Johnson
Other Poems by Michael P. Johnson

Here and there in oysters fall

A single grain of sand

Producing later a lustrous ball

In someone’s joyful hand


For round the sand found deep inside

Through membranes twisting round

The healing crustacean would hide

This foreign body found


When anti bodies cease to curl

Feeling no further threat

The oyster may reveal a pearl

A jewel to beset


Let’s think the pearl now if we can

As cladding on a child

A simile of The Son of man

Through whom one’s reconciled


Nature reveals to you and I

Christ’s secret to display

The wonderful plan of God’s on high

That faith reveals today


Though countless yet may think it odd

Though others deem untrue

Mary birthed Christ The Son of God

To die for me and you


God’s DNA entered her womb

Where human flesh grew round

Emerging from a living tomb

For sinners to be found


Casing Genes God Spirit had sown

The virgin brought to birth

All God all man of flesh and bone

Walking as One on earth.....

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.
