.""One thing I ask of the Lord, this I shall seek -- for me to dwell in the house of  the Lord all the days of  my life and view the beauty of  the Lord, and visit His holy temple." Psalm 27:4


As the wind is the breaker of trees,

So I beg The Spirit to break through my soul's walls,

And there wipe the winding life-webs,for

They fetter my journey's feet.



I will break forth

To seek You, pursue You,

The ONLY Full, and finding,


As Ii voids my soul

Of the acidic and bitter promises

Of the world and the flesh --

Lies souring souls.


I will taste the Ripe of You, Father --

Jesus, the Christ,

My Hearty  Life-Meal.


Feast at His table,

Joy with His words,

Be enchanted and charmed, but

Always grateful

As I gaze at His Risen Scars.

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.
