07 Grace In Every Place


Brief Poems About Grace


June 21st: .......... night's requiem is warbled by the robin's
reveille
*
Each soul of God a ray Each with light He arrays Never a single soul
forever goes astray.
*
Cattails weave escape ladders for drowning bugs
while a friend's safety net of words.was enough to catch a falling
star
*
Snow silent swift...as skydown softly sifts.... and turns cloud
gifts... into earthblanket drifts.
*
Through the night...miracles we did not see
.. icebergs of resistance slipped silent into the sea
*
Do rain arrows come from the rain bow?
*
As angels' inspiration descends it becomes clad in words.
*
The low river from afar is invisible
but its green line of disciple willows is visible
*
The woodpecker was able to make in the tree a nave
.. but only the sea's waves can carve sea caves
*
Jesus said to 'consider the lilies of the field.. they toil not nor
spin'. It is the sun which them spun.
*
At the end of the season cornfields are downmown
The raintree remains secure in his throne.
*
The limehued silk of the corn.. each strand wand catches
the dew of the morn.
*
As the river roared through the granite chute, it
fell onto 7 granite bowls...7 pools below 7 falls..
as shakti flows into the crown and then every other chakra
*
In earth's theatre, waiting in the wings
as he slowly sheds his angel's wings
sacrificing freedom, a great soul..
becomes a lovechild God you to bring
*
The raindropp slides down the lily leaves, taking none
of the jade from their green sleeves
*
To parched peach tree roots unbidden
come silent streams.. underground, hidden

Almighty is He who ignited the luster in each and every
graped cluster.*
*
He had a Harvard MBA degree and degree by degree
overcome by greed he had become Legree'd. Yet one sudden
day he saw.... that he and God were We'd.
*
Rainblessed, afoot! is a root.. the ailanthus grown a foot!
*
Arun arose awash in rose.. spreading His rays oer Aaron Rosen
All Beings His chosen
*
Into the stream fell a samara shower, a flotilla of lifeboats
in time for the struggling bug
*
It is good luck to feed birds in flight
that they need not slow down nor alight
*
The Grace rain follows dry river bed hollows.
Soon are new shallows.. then deeps do all hallow
*
A gathering of grey cloud mass.. communion rain for
animals birds bugs trees and grass
*
As desert shadows are more defined than those of the woods
so the separation between good and evil is greater there
*
Raincloud flotilla, float not idly by, but rend yourself
with lightning... that your grace fall from the sky
*
Past life lessons became whispers which turned to buttons keeping
my clothes on me.
-

Though a seeming physical impossibility,
the ark of each heart
contains every creature.
Some do not yet know it.
*
The sea assails the small schiff sails but by God's grace
the boat prevails
