wake up.

He believes he’s righteous and justified.
He believes it to be so....
The letter to the Ancient Italian “for there is no authority except from God, and those authorities that exist have been instituted by God”.
It is written…. and they believe.
O’ they believe, the quiet ones!
They will be pushed, they will be shouted at, they will be cried upon in horror, they will poke that fiery ego….                        And then, hidden in the belly of that continent, it will come from its cave. With its Righteous Anger!
And it will slaughter those who pushed, shouted, cried and poked!
O’ the liberal has prejudice, O’ the voice of the margins will slip out in fury, unnoticed…
Its voice lost. We never truly understood. We became arrogant in our righteousness.
He has been before and he will come again. He believes…. I retreat…… into the reasonable shores of the continent. Let not the covering of history be looked upon with, ‘what if’'


into the wild

Image
They illuminate the arched dome,
the ceiling of humanity glittered and sparkled, the natural fireworks brought wonder to my heart,  the tidal waves of colour floated across the heavens. 
I held my spear, the sharp in the air!  The frozen world glistened in the moonlight. the majestic mountains monitored our world, the landscape of the wild will test my being. 
My hand slips into the fur of my companion, his ice blue eyes waiting for the rush,  awaits for the work that he longs for,  awaits for the pleasure in his purpose. 
The frozen particles of the air rush, rush into my lungs................ ........................................... I hunger for my purpose. I hunger for what is longing in my deep self.
The landscape of wonder is breaking,  my other companions stir and prepare.  I turn to my belongings, wrapped with practicality and love, the motionless frozen twilight has been stirred!
"Mush, Mush!" 
Joy leaps into the heart of my companions,  the jolt of the sledge jum…

Let us remake the world!

Let us stop!
Let us remake the world!
No one says it has to be this way!

clasp my open hand

Image
He stood outside, his breath was fast and angry, the people laughed and drank inside.
A hand reached out, palm facing the heavens, reaching for food and love. The old widow forced to give her final pennies, She entered with tears in her eyes......
He gripped his weapon, favoured by all employers. He whispered his mantra.... "My house shall be called a house of prayer for all nations, but you have made it a robber’s' den"
He stepped into the shrine of greed and gold, the place was a sanctuary for all, but it was soiled by corrupt ambition. He spoke clearly. "My house shall be called a house of prayer for all nations, but you have made it a robber’s' den".
They turned.... "Who is this madman?" Who is this that would disrupt the status quo, he flung the tables in the air and beat those who did not care, and he shouted, "My house shall be called a house of prayer for all nations, but you have made it a robber’s' den"
the hero for the…

That Sinking Feeling

Image
O God hear my prayer..... 
It seemed everything was fine and dandy.
It seemed...........
I made plans!
I had been conscious and considerate of others. I had been mindful of every action....                                                        ..... sacrificing my own being for others. 
I thought I prepared the way. 
It was a minor thing.  It was inconsequential.  It blindsided me! 
And all the good, all the considerate thoughts and deeds, fell around me.  FELL AROUND ME
I am in despair of my mistakes.
O' Child of God hear me...
I hear your despair and sorrow. Lift up your heart and let the tears stop flowing  Your deeds of compassion and consideration will live long in the heart and minds of others! A single mistake.... measured for the whole you, are measured by those who wish you harm.  A single mistake.... is measured for what it is.  A single mistake.... is measured for what it is.... the measure of your life should encompass all of your life and not just that mistake. 
You were b…

The Dream of Intervention

Image
I took his hand....
"Perhaps, that's all it is...."

The struggle and desire of the heart are lost with expectation.  Until we become wise enough not to care....and too late to do anything about it? 
But the young are held in our hands... They are cradled with a noble expectation...
I tighten my grip.... "They have hope and longing in their eyes........."
Our broken wisdom looks back at old days with longing.  The future in our hearts and minds is beautiful.... for God within longs for it, 
The kingdom of God is within! Tears of joy are falling my friend.  
I bring him close and hold him tightly... "I am here for you.......
Over his shoulder I watch them pretend that all is well in the world,  his heart and mind broken, shattered... not knowing. 
Then, like a sudden wind, the messenger appeared by my side.  and rested their heart upon mine..... 
My smile is victorious and the sudden wind scattered the broken wisdom into a thousand parts. 
His eyes w…

the fearless song

Image
my conscious thoughts are concealing the deep anxiety...

my heart is thundering when I'm alone...

my body trembles under the warmth that surrounds me...

my spirit is vexed by the spirit that is vexed...

my soul is singing to me, a song of fear.

The song is full of dischord, the inner harmony has forgotten its melody

My tune is out of sync.......

But as I close my eyes in prayer....

But as I close my ears in prayer...

But as I control my breadth in prayer...

But as I relax the body in prayer...

                                                          I become aware,

                                                                                        and I feel the presence of God wash upon me, I hear my parents song, they hold me..................................

and it passes and I hear my new song!

A brave new song!

A song that will be rivalled by no other!


Technician of the Soul

Weaving through the fabric of time and space...
They inevitably come into our lives....
Their presence as sharp as any needle...
They are ready to slip through - knowing or unknowing - into our being.

They splash into the alchemy of our thoughts and feelings, They stir the bubbling cauldron of our consciousness, They pour that ingredient that was long missing, When others taste our presence we have become.......

Weaving through the fabric of time and space...
and we inevitably come into other lives.... we are that presence which is as sharp as any needle... Let us be ready to slip through - knowing or unknowing - into their being.



It was my doing

I had nothing.

I had no one. 
It was all my doing. 
I stared at my empty hands.... facing to the heavens. 
No divine intervention. 
The wind came, the chill made me warm. 
The company I did not expect, wrapped me up, 
It encircled me, a forever a constant!  
The nerve endings have not gone away.
The hairs on my arms stand, signalling a reaction.
But my desire of feeling has gone. 
The air is salty...
My lungs are full of joy and memory...
I grip the railing and stare into timelessness 
the ripples reflect regret....
It was all my doing. 
I didn't want that tear, but it fell,
The tear broke the ripple and my reflection of regret transformed into agony. 
The railing melted under by strength...
I stand welcoming God in my despair.
His presence precisely where it should be........
It was my doing.... 

A Spiritual Comedy. Act 2

Enter The Desire, he picks up the conkers, he stares at the tree....
Enter The Soul........The Soul stares at The Desire......

The Soul Coughs...... 


Silence
The Soul Coughs......
Pause
The Soul Coughs......
The Desire: Damn it, what? 
The Soul: I thought we were going to the pub? 
The Desire: I had a moment. 
The Soul: A moment? 
The Desire: Yes, A moment..... is it okay for me, to find oneself. If I could find the french for finding oneself, I would give an expletive in french to give it that.....

The Soul: Je Ne Sais Quoi?

The Desire: Precisely.......

Pause 
The Soul: This Moment, what is it doing to you?

The Desire: Are you my shrink all of a sudden?

The Soul: God Damn it... I'm only asking....you were staring at the tree long enough.

The Desire: I only came for the conkers...

The Soul: Well you have them, let us go....

The Desire: Are you joking.... I'm having this MOMENT, and you want to go to the Pub!

The Soul: Are you joking..... that's all you ever wanted.......wasn't it?

The Desir…
