Other Poems by Peter O



Quiet my earth-bound soul,

Silence my solo-soul, so as

To listen to the music

Of Jesus' Name, as

His Name

Chants a tearful cry

 Of a bleeding death,

A giving death,

A salvific death. As

His Name

Sings the dance

Of a Risen Life

A quick beat,

An alive beat. As

His Name

Drones the War Pipes

Confronting the demon charge

On the hills of combat. As

His Name

Rings with the  Spirit-Call

To wake and hymn

The ballad of a new life.


The Harp of Jesus' Name

Is a sound rich with tone,

Gently capturing my soul.

Thank You

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.
