Nourishment Beats

In the stillness
I can hear,
Angel hearts beat —
Nourishing my soul
One song at a time.

Come Dream with Me | Authspot. A poem from Margaret – “Capture my heart.”

Leaping | Authspot. This is a spiritual offering from Margaret. I like the imagery involved in it. Her author’s remark — “Returning to Abba’s arms.”

I think “Leaping” is another nice one from Margaret.

Smoldering Creativity

Take a dip into creativity.

Love being splashed by ripples of living water.
Reminding me that nothing is impossible for God.
Fresh possibilities feeding me creative embers
That are near death, smoldering within my soul.

Stoke the Fire

Many distractions try to inhibit or completely cut off my creative  impulses – but I know that my creativity is a God given Holy Spirit inspired gift, that God has given me to compensate for the struggles I have had to face within my life’s journey.

Weeds have their anorexic knuckles
Clasped around my melancholy neck.
Ready to wrench my head clean off my body –
In a vane attempt  to stop
My creativity flowing through my extremities –
Because it knows my soul needs to stoke
The fire of passion to do more than just exist.
Oh weeds loosen your death grasp.
My passion fire is too strong.
Words nourish my soul.

I need to write daily or else

Margaret Alden:

I have to write daily – if not, it’s like my whole body is drained of its life. I have to let my soul fly free and let the words dribble on the page like honey from the Gods. I have to write daily because it is God’s gift to me. I know I’ve got the writing bug because if I don’t write, I’m not whole.

Some prose on writing by Margaret Alden.

King of Golgotha Hill

I was inspired to write this while trying to help Margaret find her inspiration for a poem. She had a few words, “King” “Hill” and “Tree” and this is what my mind came up with. “Golgotha” is the name of the hill the crucification of Christ took place on.

King of Golgotha Hill
Fruit on man-made tree
Gift for all mankind
Lift us up forever

Bathe

Soaking in his liquid love
Drenched from tip to toe.
Mending the scars
Embedded in my soul.
I can find my voice scream.

Just To Be

Heaven needed me to love a stranger today.
Heaven needed me to show someone their passions flow.
Lessons have a ring of simplicity, like learning, just to be:
To know the pure embrace of the Heavenly Father’s Love.
To hum a lover’s melody.
To be kissed by the wind.
Now that is learning, to be.

Complex Enigma

God; is the only one not restricted to a box.

Life source, Higher power, God; is the only one not restricted to a box. If this being is, man has placed him there. We are not puppeteers, placed on Earth to tug his strings. Higher power is not instant coffee. His lessons and perplexities take our life’s journey to fathom. If then, limited understanding is gained.

God is not a plastic surgeon. His cuts are far from precise. He does not sew neatly to cover up our scars.

On the first step of my journey, my foot will move forward soon. Your journey is different from mine. We are all travelers moving. Take courage along for the ride.
