“A kernel is hidden in me; a spark; a thought. I am life from eternal life. The attempt and the risk that the eternal mother took with me is unique, unique the form and veins of my skin, unique the smallest play of leaves in my branches and the smallest scar on my bark. I was made to form and reveal the eternal in my smallest special detail.”

– Hermann Hesse

Arbor Day In America! Do support the nearest tree.

Your Life Comes In Right Here

Posted in poetry with tags , , , , on March 24, 2012 by Uncle Tree

Your very own story is quite unique in itself,
but when you dare to go beyond –
the mystery of you becomes the magic in me.

Three As One

Posted in Christianity, poetry with tags , , , , , , on August 20, 2011 by Uncle Tree

I went on this path one day – off the straight and narrow way

looking to find the unknown – unafraid to be alone

a skip in my stride – my smile a mile wide

passion perspiring inside.

.

Suddenly! There’s a shadow – beside my own.

“It can’t be so!” No one came with me, I know.

Nobody else wished to go.

Who could it be then? How shall I begin?

Where did it happen and when?

.

I’ll tell you a secret now – that only you can allow.

Stick with me for one moment – maybe you’ll find atonement.

Do you not have the time? It won’t cost a dime.

(Don’t be scared. It’s just a rhyme.)

.

Okay? Now, back to the trail…

not knowing that I could fail – sensing a treasure ahead

I take a left turn instead.

And to my surprise – right before my eyes

this other shadow complies.

.

I look – but no one is there!

With reason, I must compare…

Judging it, I do declare, “It’s not my own!”, but I swear,

it stayed right with me. I giggled with glee!

(Quite strange, you might agree.)

.

And so, I strode on through the wood

wond’ring if two shadows could

converge as one, if the light

from the sun was angled right.

.

I stopped in my tracks, and checked out the facts:

←  Three as One  →

Sun on our backs!

Guardian Shadow appear! Assurance is always near.

Tho’ crossroads never seem clear,

Directions tell me not to fear.

Whichever I choose, I know I can’t lose.

He’s already paid my dues!

For there are three that bear record in heaven,

the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost:

and these three are one.

1 John 5:7

All Mixed Up In Love

A whirlpool of change
A spiral form in essence
Virtuous vacuum

Blending emotions
Separating loves and hates
From top to bottom

Humble loves stay low
Arrogant hates spin out high
Dizzying effects

Soon I will be left
With nothing but my true love
She makes things go right

Sorrows spin away
My happiness holds on tight
Her love surrounds me

A hug in motion
Her kisses land all over
A good mix we’ll make
