Capturing God

Post No. 866


Capturing God


Trying to capture God

In all the witnesses to His existence

From the smallest mites

To the gigantic whales

In all life that lives and breathes

In every thing that He conceives

The beauty of earth

The splendour of space

His magnificence defies

Our greatest dreams

And all our imaginings

Sweet Dreams

Post No. 789

Sweet Dreams

Babies’ breath, talcum powder,
Eiderdown, a fluffy cloud,
Floats on high in a clear blue sky.
Innocence and purity
Should grow into maturity,
But, no, he may lack integrity.

Evil creeps in through the door –
What on earth is he waiting for?
Takes advantage while he can
To profit from the greed of man.
The sweetest dreams have been and gone,
Lost, unfounded, one by one.

But redemption is there within his reach:
Listen to the pastor preach,
Take heart and rue the day
When Satan came and hoped to stay.

Some upright
Others lolling
On their sides
A few slid down
Sitting on their spines
Some with open eyes
Others closed
But most unseeing
In their world
Of imagining
Of remembering
In their minds
Like moving pictures
Behind the blinds
I quashed my guilt
For failing them
Not paying them
The kindness of a call
Not popping in
However briefly
Assuring them
They are not forgotten
Not alone

Moving House


Packing, sorting, exhausting, draining

Boring, chore-ing, but sometimes inspiring,

Uncovering, discovering long-lost treasure,

Teaching me not to be a hoarder

Or a collector (as I like to think)!

Stones and shells in a container

Opened once in a while to caress their beauty

And be transported back in time…

A glance through the window at the world outside

Reminds me that it doesn’t stand still;

I have to relish the rush of life

And also enjoy the blush of life

Wallpapering my window in its rosy light.

Sitting staring into space
Remembering another time and place
Now all alone in her silent world
Peacefully waiting…

The sounds of life pass her by
The hue and cry out in the streets
Birds in the trees fill the air
With their twitterings and tweets

Another time, another place…
Soon she’ll quit the human race
The race of life is almost run
And she accepts what is to come

Hall of Mirrors




In all directions

Reaching into eternity

You and me


*A linear concept of time and space

Is in use by the human race

But time is circular

Layer upon layer

Compressed together


In the enormity of the universe

Time and space ARE eternity…

The Edge of the World


Teetering on a tightrope
Hanging on a shelf
Grasp with frozen fingertips
While the moon hangs itself

Reality is become fiction
And fiction doesn’t exist
Solid ground falls away
Leaving space in its place

Heads spin on shoulders
Wi(l)de-eyed at far-off visions
Sense-less dreams of peace
On our bleeding earth

The dawning promise of morning
Where golden arrows streak the sky
And blushing clouds drift on high
Doused in purest gold

Too soon the sun appears
Reaching over the horizon
And the surrounding colours brighten
In a burst of blazing flames

Glorious scenes beyond our dreams
Pleasure and delight our senses
Oh that we could freeze the moment
With each and every small component
