Quickening those, who’ve truly heard –Jn.14:6

And taken to their hearts –Jas.1:22

With honey in between –Isa.7:15


Once weaned, we’re called to God’s elite –Heb.5:13-14

Still young, and not quite tough

A soldier needs the choicest meat –Jn.21:17

So side by side, to beat the foe –Ps.91:7

Then all God’s Truth, have found

Will raise the flag that flies half-mast

And rise to Hallowed Ground –Isa.11:10…..

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.
