Journey of Spirit, Poetry by Tara Payne Steele

I journeyed to a land far across the sea,
where people were dying in front of me.
Their country was torn, they had no hope,
brother killing brother, how would they cope?
I whispered a prayer in everyone’s ear,
Understanding’s the answer, conquering fear.

Genre: Rhyme, Spiritual, Quest

Journey of Spirit by Tara Payne Steele

I dreamed a dream one starry night,
that my spirit was free to soar and take flight.

I journeyed to a land far across the sea,
where people were dying in front of me.
Their country was torn, they had no hope,
brother killing brother, how would they cope?
I whispered a prayer in everyone’s ear,
Understanding’s the answer, conquering fear.

My journey continued to another land,
where sweet babies were crying in the sand.
The children were starving, they had no hope,
without food and water, how would they cope?
I whispered a prayer in everyone’s ear,
Compassion’s the answer, conquering fear.

I journeyed to yet another place,
where souls cried out at an alarming pace.
Their hearts were broken, they had no hope,
devoid of purpose, how would they cope?
I whispered a prayer in everyone’s ear,
Faith’s the answer, conquering fear.

I journeyed home to finally rest,
spiritual satisfaction ended my quest.
The people were happy, they had new hope,
Love’s the answer, that’s how they would cope.
A peaceful world was finally at hand,
my dream for every child,
woman,
and man.

Poem For Tranquility, Poetry by JoyAnne O’Donnell

Nature is pure poetry

The trees blowing an orchestra of words

The flowers seeing the petals of stars colors

The green grass growing

Genre: Life, Spiritual

Poem For Tranquility by JoyAnne O’Donnell

Nature is pure poetry

The trees blowing an orchestra of words

The flowers seeing the petals of stars colors

The green grass growing

With the sun’s warm smile

The lunch breaks cool breeze

Taking the sweat from the ashes

Of work clouds

Rainbows shine on fridays ocean current

Special roses scent brand new days

With heaven’s brightest sun.

IN SILENCE I BLEED, Poetry by Bob Valleau

Amidst the laughter, I’m in pain.
Where is God when I call His name?
Don’t be fooled by what I hide.
I smile without though hurt inside.

Genre: Rhyme, Spiritual

IN SILENCE I BLEED
By. Bob Valleau
© 2016

Amidst the laughter, I’m in pain.

Where is God when I call His name?

Don’t be fooled by what I hide.

I smile without though hurt inside.

Does anyone notice? Does anyone care?

How lonely I am when no one’s there.

I scream. I cry. I long to flee.

For something or someone to comfort me.

Darkness abounds,

In silence I bleed.

A sliver of hope,

Is all I need.

And I Pray, Poetry by Marc Libidinsky

Be exalted, Lord our God, and
Cleanse Your vine with Grace;
Delight in mercy, give us Truth,
Even the righteous words of Faith.

Genre: Spiritual, Religion

  And I Pray (Acrostic)
by Marc Libidinsky

Be exalted, Lord our God, and
Cleanse Your vine with Grace;
Delight in mercy, give us Truth,
Even the righteous words of Faith.

Favor us and hear our prayers.
Give to us Your Kingdom’s peace;
Honor and glory belong to You
In this life, and so we plead,

“Jesus fill our hearts with Love –
Kindness from our God;
Lifting us in due season,
Make us righteous by Your blood!”

Nothing greater than Your power
Or Your Name can lift us up!

Power and might belong to Jesus.
Quench not His Spirit with false ways.
Return with hunger to your first love –
Sanctify Jesus in your days.

Tell of all His wondrous works, and
Unite your hearts in simple praise!

We cry to You, our holy Savior,
Xalted, You are lifted up;
Your name is Hope and we declare it –

                  Zealous love will fill our cup!

GOD’S Pursuit, Poetry by BW 4 Christ

My prayers need answers

Answers that I seek

For a strong soul that is often meek

That pursuit doesn’t always take me to YOUR book

Genre: Rhyme, Spiritual

GOD’S Pursuit by BW 4 Christ

 

My prayers need answers

Answers that I seek

For a strong soul that is often meek

That pursuit doesn’t always take me to YOUR book

For I never know where to look

Sometimes it’s in the course of a day

That the answers come across my way

Other times it’s in YOUR pursuit of me

That you use the things I see

For YOU created me visually

It’s in the trees so strong and tall

It’s written on walls

Maybe a program on TV

Music that strikes the very heart of me

YOUR pursuit, YOUR woo, YOUR courtship, OUR relationship

All depends on the answers that I seek

For that soul that’s strong but often meek

That sometimes needs a wake up call

The cause for that fall

Just so I have no choice but to look up before the ground swallows me whole

And I lose that strong soul

That YOU created from the beginning

Set in a fallen world of free will

That keeps on sinning

Answers that it continuously seeks

A soul forced to be made weak

YOUR pursuit to capture just so YOU can make it free

Looks into the very heart of me

Patiently silently knocks at the door

With hope once more

Expecting just once chance

To break down the walls with no romance

Strongholds that were built in more than one night

Gave the devil his delight

Holding on to the lock and key

Swallowed up everything

No peace, self-control, hope or joy

Permanently scarred grown humans that used to be girls and boys

But that pursuit that YOU do

If we allow ourselves to be captured

We’ll be stuck to YOU

Living life more abundantly

Made whole and free

Strongholds washed away

Peace, joy, hope and all the other good fruit here to stay

No matter if it rains wet

But YOU dry with just YOUR breathe

Cause YOUR pursuit means we have met

That pursuit means the thrill is never gone

Away goes those sad songs

Cause YOU have reached and mended the very heart of me

YOUR pursuit, woo, courtship, relationship says

Ode to Mary
By Jordan Cromwell

Mother Mary

Divine Love
Holy Protection
Your Presence does
Give me Peace
Give me Love
Lady of the Light
You catch my tears
In your hands of Grace
I place myself
In your care
We are singing to you
Our voices are clear
Mother Mary do you hear?
Our tears of sadness?
Cries of fear?
Give us comfort
Draw us near
To your light
Mother Mary sing your song
