Groanings of Love!

Groanings of Love!

Here upon
The Calvary’s tree
the man Jesus wept

Such a great pain
Great, indeed he bore
for love’s sake,
My wretched self

So was its blindness
Of the power of this love
and he groaned
Melted God’s heart
and broke the
Temple’s cloak

‘Tis of the power
Of this pain; and
In the name of love
I declare
That they shatter
And plunder
all shackles of captivity
Wound around man

Liberation is nigh!
For body mind and soul
shall of its iniquities
Be cleansed; and the
Infirmities of our nature
Healed to stand
Like Calvary’s love

For ages unending, Amen

SPIDER’S WEB

Interconnectivity of creativity
In an ambience of aesthetics
Symmetrically proportioned
Yet suspended in suspension
With invisibly visible yarn
Then the spidery ensconced poise
Though repulsive ‘neath roofs
Is aesthetics personified elsewhere
