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.

God’s Pure Light

God said, Let there be light: and there was light.
And God saw the light, that it was good:
Gen.1: God, 4 (to:)

Be still, in the humble sanctuary of purest prayer,
In the calm assurance that Truth and Love are here.
Leave behind false idols, mem’ries of the past,
Feel God’s ever-presence now, healing quick and fast.
His promise is forever, at one with Her, true sight;
And from time eternal, I shine as God’s pure light.

Oh give me, Father-Mother, the focus just to walk
With Love and Truth and Life: and with these only talk.
May every act, every deed, be governed by these Three;
So reflect, in one-ness, the Glory that is Thee.
As I pray I just let drop all sense of mortal might,
Dismiss the dark of time, and shine as God’s pure light.
