Your Love for God

I give you sunrise

And sleep to temper your love

Becoming pure gold

Michigan Shudders

Breathe the Spirit of Jack Frost

Jack Needs a Smack-Down

He hurls down his crystals of ice like crumbs; who can stand before his cold?

Who is Jack Frost?

SHAKING THE DUST

“Long is the way / And hard, that out of Hell leads up to Light”John Milton, Paradise Lost

 

(For Tracie Pratt)

Today she celebrates the Savior’s birth,

Worships the light, in fullness yet unseen.

But errant hearts distort the light of earth.

Again they scourge the Son of Man, her King.

While season’s clamor muffles Christendom,

Impious hearts embrace the wintry frost,

The ones for whom rebirth may never come.

Then Advent passes, notwithstanding cost.

She seeks the strength to speak the boldest truth,

Then shakes the dust, withdraws and moves along.

From town to town, propitiation soothes:

The burden Jesus takes, and pain is gone.

Henceforth, she judges not and speaks in love:

His saving graces descending like a dove.
