Posted in Christianity, poetry with tags , , on May 15, 2011 by Uncle Tree


What does it

mean to be

a Christian

when the God you know and love

takes a child you know and love?

When He takes

your child

your baby

your most

beloved

belonging?

Adventure Multiplied

Posted in poetry with tags , on July 18, 2015 by Uncle Tree

out of the blue

Facing the future

with you is adventure

multiplied by two

hearts who capture

the love which grows after

we’ve made it together

in moments that come from

out of the blue

Song Of Understanding

Posted in poetry with tags , , on June 14, 2015 by Uncle Tree

forest at night

In the quiet of the mornin’

long before the cock does crow

the early bird, she comes a singin’

(hard tellin’ what she knows)

Seems to me, her tweets are secret-

coded notes with birdy words

so concise and quite direct

the foreign language that I heard

♫ ♪ ♫

sunrise in the forest

I bet, she often wonders if

her love can hear her song

restin’ in his tree on yonder cliff

Is it for her, he truly longs?

 ♪

Is it for her, he waits at sea?

Does he not know her place?

Can he not see that he is free

to leave that lonely space?

♫ ♪ ♫

A Soul Full Of Diamonds

Imperishable

From atom to molecule,

I have always been there for you.

From cellular distractions to complex organisms,

I have kept you right by my side.

From plants to ferns to trees,

I have watched you ever evolve.

From petrifying flesh to blackest coal,

I have secured your safe arrival.

When She Speaks To Me

From the bark of a puppy dog
to the croak of a bullfrog
She knows the language of life

From the pussy cat’s “Meow”
to the Willow’s humble bow
She knows the signs of strife

Hanging On For Dear Life After Death

hanging on

After most of us have passed away
a piece of us is left to stay
hanging on for
better days
with a
leg
up
on the future

Love In The Round

Posted in poetry with tags , , on March 21, 2015 by Uncle Tree

Hocus Focus

Long before Time you were
the eternal light forever seen
through the passion-powered lens
of my intently aligned
super telescopic
tunnel vision
of love 

sunset

The time we spend together
binds the joys and thrills we treasure
to a love no rule can measure
and a hope no will can tether!
