On the Board

I will let myself
Be on Your board
I will let myself
Be in play by You

Pawn or king
Knight or queen
Not my choice
But Your design

I will let You choose me
I will let You move me
I will be a
Chess piece in Your hand

Dark of Night

Ah, my first poem to be posted here. I wrote this during our Christmas Eve services last night. (Now to let everyone know I have a working blog. : )

Dark of Night

Darkness deep
Dark of night
See the star
Shine so bright

Darkness deep
Dark of war
See the glow
Feel  the warmth

Darkness deep
Dark of fear
See Him come
Drawing near

Darkness deep
Dark of sin
See the peace
Love will win

Darkness deep
Dark alone
See the truth
You’re His own

Darkness deep
Dark of night
See your hope
Born this night

Dark of Night

Darkness deep

Dark of night

See the star

Shine so bright

Darkness deep

Dark of war

See the glow

Feel the warmth

Darkness deep

Dark of fear

See Him come

Drawing near

Darkness deep

Dark of sin

See the peace

Love will win

Darkness deep

Dark alone

See the truth

You’re His own

Darkness deep

Dark of night

See your hope

Born this night

Aloha, and Mele Kalikimaka

It’s Christmas Eve morning here, and I’m finally making my first post on this blog. A few weeks ago I decided that my first poetry challenge for the new year would be to get this thing going. For that’s my plan for this space. To have a spot where I can put my poems and share them easily with others. Hopefully those who enjoy the poems will then share the links with others. My next post will be the poem I wrote during last nights Christmas Eve services.

Now let’s see if I can figure out how to get this finished. : )
