The Bible

Ringing through this collections of poems is a great love for the Holy Bible, and a simple theme, that if the Bible is to have any meaning it has to be relevant to our present lives. There are many poems that take the reader to the heart of a Bible story, challenging one to consider the reality of what actually happened, – did Moses see a burning bush that was not consumed, were five thousand really fed from just five loaves and two fishes, was a violent tempest stilled? Were sin, disease and death really overcome? And interwoven with these Biblical accounts in verse or prose are other poems that show a searching out of thought and realisation that can be summarised in the simple knowledge that God is Love.

The earnest expectation is that for any reader any one of these poems may find for them an angel thought that brings comfort and healing, and whispers of God’s love. The lightest touch is all it takes for the gentle kiss of inspiration to overcome the direst circumstance and leave healing, peace and reconciliation.

Eve’s Dream

And the LORD God commanded the man, saying, Of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat:
But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die.

The serpent smiled and said, “Do let me in:
Once in your thought I’ll get under your skin!
We can be good friends, just trust what I say –
You’re free to choose: Let me show you the way.
Simply just listen: temptation’s no trick:
In less than a second my nice thought will stick!
All you need do is just talk here with me,
I’ll tell you the truth about every tree.
I know what you want, – to be like a god,
To be much more than just raised from the sod.
The God that you love has sold you quite short;
You need to know evil to win my support.
Just disobey Him, – the apple do eat:
You will find it delicious, – an absolute treat!
The both of you will become very wise,
Strange just one mouthful will open your eyes!”

I spared him a thought, what he said seemed true:
It took just the one for his lies to pour through.

That little word “Just”, – temptation’s best friend.
Don’t be fooled! Don’t listen. Don’t dare descend!
Suggesting that sin is easy to do
Just makes an assumption error is true!
The Eve dream is false, for how can we fall
When our God is infinite, All-in-all.
We can’t be tempted, – don’t let error win:
The answer so simple. Don’t be took in!

God made us perfect, wake up from Eve’s dream!
In infinite Love there is no weak seam.
At one with the Father no one can fall.
There is nothing can tempt; God’s Love is ALL.

The favourite words of error may be “if”, “when”, “just”, “compare”. They don’t exist in Principle, where “Only”, “Now” and “All” reign supreme. There is nothing to tempt man, forever at one with God, nor could man, in His image and likeness, ever be tempted.
