"'...flesh and blood has not revealed this to you (Peter),
But my Father who is in heaven...'" Matthew 16:17


Porous is my soul
To You, Your Revelation that
Jesus is the Christ,
The Son of the Living God.

You peeled away the hiding skin
And laid bare the raw, fresh Fruit
Of Your Love --Jesus, the Christ.

Your Revelation is like a gentle glide
On the rising wings of a Butterfly --
Jesus, the Christ.
It is the stem for Your Will's Flower --
Your Love for us, Jesus, the Christ.

With this,
You give my soul
A majesty undeserved.

So, please, I ask
Not to be infected
From mistrust's stain;
Nor deafen'd
From a laughable arrogance.

Be bare of soul before You,
Your Sacred Ambition of Love
That circled the centuries
Shouting freed, Resurrection-Freedom,
And open to this Revelation.

Mortality will receive immortality,
Soul-prison opens to soul-freedom.

A Truth.
A Mystery.

About the Poet
I am 79 years of age. For the past nine years I have been retired, after forty years, from the field of alcoholism and drug abuse in New York City. I am married and we have two grown sons and two grand-sons. My life changed through a grace-experience in 1967. Writing Christian prayers is a particular interest of mine. This came about by a growing awareness of the spiritual in recovery from addictions. I choose, intellectually and emotionally, to believe the Triune God of the Sared Scriptures as my Healer.
