Friday read what happens to the father of the first democracy and the true father of the Reformation

“I and My Father Are One” John 10:30 The father of the father of Reformation was poisoned. The father was hung by the neck like a Judas after having his arms torn out of their sockets on the strappado. They were heretics they were saints like St. Joan burned at the stake, when Christ’s message […]

Christianity is being attacked or diluted from every direction. The primary purpose of this blog is uphold the original Biblical standard…Christianity outlawed slavery, it gave the individual the freedom to think and choose for himself, it gave women rights when every other culture enslaved them. In short Christianity is responsible for the progress we have made to date and the formation of this great nation….would love to have dialogue with anyone on this subject….

If you would like another look at ‘If She Is a Slave,’ you’ll find it in the May archive… a recurrent theme of mine is ‘The Love of God.’ Tell me which poem you prefer, ‘The Love of God’ or ‘Jesus Wept.’ Hope you get a chance to read both.

The Love of God Because He refused to give high priest undue due, an officer of the court struck Him flat with hand out of the blue Jesus did not turn the other cheek but asked the man why, as He never did not speak evil nor did He keep secrets in teaching people who […]

Here is a shorter poem of which I am particularly proud…. Enjoy…. If you have not read, “Jesus Wept,” let me suggest that one as well

Looking for Unique   looking for unique? Just wait! examine the sand you hold, it runs through your fingers like a brook trout up a cool stream too busy for bait, the mention of place is lost holding fast to the train moving past in the night, but not its whistle not its freight and […]

as these two poems go together, i’ve placed the first, Great Aunt Kate, first. its sequel, Kate’s Will is next…

Great Aunt Kate Rocks in her favorite chair, feet by the grate, no longer cold. The fire prepared by her man, almost as brittle as she and old. He sits downstairs by his own, his radio on and whittles small figures for children now grown “How they always came by,” she’d sigh. “So fast. It […]

must apologize: the words are all here, but the computer has distorted some of the margins…. as some of the readers have asked for the sequel to Great Aunt Kate earlier…. here it is….Kate’s Will

Kate’s Will The Attic She went wherever she wanted to and when. In a dining car, elegant strangers rolling across Europe to the soothing click and rock of rails.

to my regulars expecting a poem on sat evening, hope this one gives you something to chew on… to new readers from Chautauqua….welcome… i try to put out an original poem every sat and tues evening ( a daunting task i must admit)… as you can see there is a definite religious agenda

Labyrinth Labyrinth made of rumors, mirrors, windows, whispers you walk into, a solid wall, the door behind you open to a distant, intermittent hue of guilt and grief that all who knew that ancient thief share furtively with their own achievement clouded as it is in a veil of doubt, some distant bell assigning time […]

Unblemished Love… from Parades Your Dreams Remember

Unblemished Love Christ carrying his cross, weakened falls upon the road. beastly beam lands square on his back, a short parade, a following parade what it takes to crush a heart (so brave) medically His pericardium fills with edema from the blow, women weeping on both sides, cowed a large man, Simon, steps out to […]
