Universe Orator


The far out there we strive to delve into
The mired-down terra here we call home

Be brave, if you will

Act to master the wherefore
Despite arms never long enough
Lousy, camera-fumbling hands
Fingers that can’t match the shutter speed
To touch what the eyes so beautifully see
To hold that light reflecting
From the Universe Orator

Still, we of mortal’s strength
With small or great faith
Must reach celestial-ward
Look up
Cry out
Be healed

Original Thought Credit: “If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.”
-2 Chronicles 7:14


Should we ask the why
Why valleys, why the deserts
Will I feel fear then
And for what purpose, blood

These questions steal my joy
So I must not indulge
My bright green eyes have found
What they need to see

His nature, his nature
Where true, due North is Love
My compass mark it is
My whole heart holds fast here

It’s unknown how it’s so
My feet seem always falling
On paths unpaved and thistled
Somehow my soul it knows

I’ll see the thankful temples
I’ll have girls own big books
I’ll sail silent down black rivers
You’ll come with me Grace

My Narrow View

Cast aside selfish fear
Find Life’s scruff
Eye to eye, tell It the truth:

You’re the only One and I am blessed
Don’t You dare settle for any day
Where You don’t love more
Where all isn’t risked just for You
