19 Epiphanies
1
At Noon

The darkness
of my shadow reveals
the brightness of my light.

2
Humanity's Potential

The depth of our darkness
the blackness of our shadows
Reveals the brightness of our light.

3
Undocumented Data

Future sentiments
Sometimes fluctuating attitudes
Develop Complaints

4
True Religion

True religion is joy,
living each day in God's love,
and praising the Lord with your life.

5
The Armor of God

Prayer by prayer
I put on the armor of God
Unfailing protection

6
Baha'u'llah,
The Glory of God

The awe inspiring splendor
of Earth's daylight star
fades before the Glory of God,
before the grandeur of the Beloved.

7
After Daylight Savings Time

The feel of time is different
from its image
on the clock.

8
Dreams of Life

I dream of eternal live;
I dream of Soul Birds and their young;
I dream of huge red spotted black winged butterflies
fluttering through the forest of paradise;
I dream of shiny green sculpted caterpillars
crawling across the green oak-shaped leaves
of the Tree of Life.

9
The Bridge

Love
unites humanity;
heals the wounds of hate.

10
Sacred Sites

Places of prayer
Where powerful spirits live
Natural shelters

The God of the world
Created water babies
Sand Mountain Cave Rock

11
Keeping a Journal

I'm climbing walls
crawling spider-like across
the faux brick mosaics
of my illusions.

12
Depression:
Feeling Useless

I feel redundant
like prison-gray block wall stains
on masonry block walls
or drab
concrete patterns painted
on stucco trellises.

13
Night

The night is silent
Echoless
Foretelling the bright joy of morning

14
Out of the Blue

Before lightning strikes
the air crackles
with anticipation.

Afterwards
the blue sky rumbles
with the joy of inspiration.

15
Patriotism
In the Twenty-First Century

the ideal
all men created equal
a self-evident truth
in the twenty-first century
all men become humanity
our duty clear
defend humanity

16
Praising God in Dance

The mid-eastern dancer
her body moving to the rhythms
of her own sexuality
dances her praise to God.

17
Unknown Inspiration

Secret thoughts
Whispered in the dark of night
Fall into polls of chocolate conversation

18
The Blessed

Blessed are they
Happy are they
Who enter the house of the Lord
As one family
One ancient faith with many temples.

19
The Lover's Feast

The pain of separation
penetrates my soul,
as piece by piece I consume
the fragments of my heart.
