Artists

Little gods with feet of clay

Under pressure from within

To create as themselves were made

In the image of He who wrought

The beauty of the world displayed

For those whose eyes are opened wide

And whose senses forever sought

To complement the portrait brought

And laid as offering to the only One

Capable of original thought

The Paintbox

Post No. 905

The Paintbox

.

All the colours of words

Contrasts and

Shades of meaning

Music revealing feeling

The paintbox of our lives

Whether in neutrals, pastels or

Vivid, livid living hues of

Lightness and brightness

With traces of shadow

Eclipsing the sun

From time to time

Immemorial…

Ethereal…

Escaping the Abyss

Post No. 904

Escaping the Abyss

,

A bottomless pit

Is where I’m at

A deep well leading down to hell

I claw feverishly at the wall

And cry for help with a soundless voice

Bounded by silence

Black as pitch, absorbent hush

Rain runs barefoot down my neck

Soothing all pain along my back

I feel fingers reach down my arm

Leading me, guiding me

Upward, onward, safely

Far, far away from harm

Nightmare

Post No. 903

Nightmare

.

Life blood leaks down the walls

Black shadows crowd in the halls

The old house shivers and shakes

While dark memories keep him awake

Memories that won’t go to bed

Memories that crowd in his head

Troubled, constantly whirling

Tossing and turning

Seeking escape from his thoughts

As the night drags slowly

Tick by tick and tock by tock

And the sun lags lazily behind the clock

Perfection

Post No. 902

Perfection

.

We cannot conceive,

Are unable to perceive,

His perfection…

As His spirit fills our souls

And His inspiration fuels our goals,

We are humbled before Him ~

Our King;

Father of the universe,

The revelation of whose love

Holds us in awe, spell-bound,

Wanting nothing more

Than to praise and adore

Our Lord.

GOD

GOD

God

God is

God is all

Who stands between you and death

Who gives you your last breath

His is the power

He is the Father

Who holds you to His breast

Open your eyes and see

Open your ears and hear

Today you have a second chance

You’re a lucky one –

Some had none

All you must do is believe

Fill your heart with love

For Jesus who died to forgive

And your sin will be gone

Completely overcome

And we will live

For ever

Pressure

Post No. 896

Pressure

.

We are under pressure

To run the race of life

The here and now comes first

No more living in the past

Take a step back and look

At today: “life in the fast lane”

Actors in masks doing what is asked

Superficiality has no bounds

Insanity reigns in this melee

As all and sundry join the fray

Feelings smothered, masked

As we try to portray the ideals

Thrust on us by those in the know

And we accept without a word

Without a sign of a struggle

Because we all want to be someone else

And pretence leaves emptiness.
