O Lord, holy is Your Name!
As one of Your many children,
my inheritance I openly claim.

Willingly I lift my voice in praise,
thankful for Your new mercies
and the warmth of the sunís rays.

With genuineness of heart
and a simplicity of words,
I desire for Your kick startÖ

to begin this glorious day,
as Iím covered with blessings,
and faithís fragrant bouquet!

Forgive me of my ignorance
and lack of spiritual understanding,
when I kneel before Your Presence.

Bathe me with divine inspiration,
and cover me with Your Essence,
before I embraceÖ deathís cremation.

Thanks for meeting my earthly needs;
keep me focused on right priorities
and spreading your Wordís holy seed.

Help me share my poetic story
and touch the lives of others,
until I reachÖ Heavenís glory.



Author Notes:

Loosely based on:
Matt 6:9-13

Do any of your longer poems talk about the beauty of the world as an example of God's love and presence in all things?

One poem immediately comes to mind; after that, I'd have to do some research. Presently I've written around 400 poems.



Poem: Evening Sky


Gazing into a starry night,
I see a deep indigo sky
with perfect placement of twinkling light.
Stars reveal the expanse of time
from before the birth of humanity;
their existence came from dynamic energy
which was created by spoken word
that no man has ever heard.
Solitary spirit of awesome might
painted this heavenly canvas
with a flick of His hand and uttered thought.
Divine creation shared with you and me -
It's part of our heritage and His eternal legacy.

I'm looking for a long poem to read at church Sunday (I know, day after tomorrow!). The topic is that the spirit of Christ is infinite in all the wonders of the universe and beyond. We don't have to look. Everything is full of beauty and wonder from the stars (your poem above) to a bird's song to the melody in an opera. We just need to be aware every day and be uplifted by that spiritual presence.

The topic reminded me of your poetry. I'm not a poetry person and don't read many of yours, but those that I do read I enjoy.
