Poems of Provision VI

Our destiny now underway
The milestone intended, the magnitude attended, this rare dawn advancing twenty 16.
The onset of things ahead, by the Messenger we are lead, yes a well-coordinated scene.
Not a pleasure cruise for snooze, we’re a vessel for God to use, oh for that open ocean spray.
The ship now casting off, beyond the ripples a waiting trough, it’s our destiny now underway.
The voyage to a new world, a secret cargo so well furled, the work calling for a great ability.
It’s an “all hands” affair, making humanity now aware, may we all respond with availability.
Not a pleasure cruise for snooze, we’re a vessel for God to use, oh for that open ocean spray.
The ship now casting off, beyond the ripples a waiting trough, it’s our destiny now underway.
There’s a yearning for the start, a momentum within my heart, it’s a strong and steady breeze.
There’s a gathering across the land and it’s honest and it’s grand, yes it’s my spirit it so frees.
Not a pleasure cruise for snooze, we’re a vessel for God to use, oh for that open ocean spray.
The ship now casting off, beyond the ripples a waiting trough, it’s our destiny now underway.
God’s New Message to proclaim, yes humanity the aim, it’s the entrance of an elevated stage.
Step on through that door, bringing to bear your inner core, yes a greater must to engage.
Not a pleasure cruise for snooze, we’re a vessel for God to use, oh for that open ocean spray.
The ship now casting off, beyond the ripples a waiting trough, it’s our destiny now underway.
A plan is but plan until it’s started yes began, and then perhaps a bit of luck included too.
Yet with ample practice and prepare, without wanting to despair, the luckier we’ll be it’s true.
Not a pleasure cruise for snooze, we’re a vessel for God to use, oh for that open ocean spray.
The ship now casting off, beyond the ripples a waiting trough, it’s our destiny now underway.

 

cascading grace


27


 There is a place, a cascading grace…
How do I know if I’ve got what it takes? I’ve failed the separation, I did.
I’ve come this far so very far, can I make a difference on this earthly grid?
There is a place, a cascading grace, when I’m feeling so alone.
It’s an enduring space, this presence embrace, a powerful loving tone.
Oh to recognize without compromise, I am not here for myself not only.
May God bestow something really challenging, and there’s no time left for lonely.
There is a place, a cascading grace, when I’m feeling so alone.
An enduring space, the presence embrace, a powerful loving tone.
Yes consistency and practice, set conditions for a higher learning.
Yet repetition can cause complacency, I must not blunder this greater turning.
There is a place, a cascading grace, when I’m feeling so alone.
An enduring space, this presence embrace, a powerful loving tone.
It’s essence and action that gets all the traction, oh that four pillar build.
Beneath the noise that unsettles the poise, the mind still must be stilled.
There is a place, a cascading grace, when I’m feeling so alone.
An enduring space, the presence embrace, a powerful loving tone.
I focus on a feeling not a repealing, not something that makes me inert.
How could one ever be lonely, with the Angels inspiring such assert?
There is a place, a cascading grace, when I’m feeling so alone.
An enduring space, this presence embrace, a powerful loving tone.

thread

Our line our lineage that golden thread
When in wonder oh which way, your heart will tell you what to pray.
A greater light now on display, the New Message from God here to stay.
It’s been said and you have read, there’s nothing worthy that’s instead.
Our line our lineage that golden thread, the purpose for which we continue ahead.
It’s the calm before the storm and what I’m feeling not the norm.
Not much time now for transform, these Steps essential to perform.
It’s been said and you have read, there’s nothing worthy that’s instead.
Our line our lineage that golden thread, the purpose for which we continue ahead.
The mood abounding without tame, to get beyond the judge and blame.
What then be our determined aim, reclaim Knowledge it’s our “A” game.
It’s been said and you have read, there’s nothing worthy that’s instead.
Our line our lineage that golden thread, the purpose for which we continue ahead.
To be the same no matter the stage, yes its work without a wage.
The world around me all in rage, a simple part be mine, not a sage.
It’s been said and you have read, there’s nothing worthy that’s instead.
Our line our lineage that golden thread, the purpose for which we continue ahead.
The only constant is there’s change, even way out there on the grange.
Deepest valley to highest range, from unknowing to knowing, a greater exchange.
It’s been said and you have read, there’s nothing worthy that’s instead.
Our line our lineage that golden thread, the purpose for which we continue ahead.

I shall not want
The former moving ever behind, what’s ahead is on its way.
Use discernment and discretion, there’ll be no neutral place to pray.
There will be a new horizon, so stay steady against the daunt.
Am I involved or committed, between the bookends I shall not want.
There’s a place amidst the cold and hot, a seemingly safe lukewarm.
Yet alas it’s paired with quicksand, in no way a greater platform.
There will be a new horizon, so stay steady against the daunt.
Am I involved or committed, between the bookends I shall not want.
So I find myself right where I am, the place I always begin.
It’s unlearning more than learning, these opposites so akin.
There will be a new horizon, so stay steady against the daunt.
Am I involved or committed, between the bookends I shall not want.
There’s a purpose to find and finish, some reclaiming yet to do.
It’s that deeper mind within me, trusting Knowledge through and through.
There will be a new horizon, so stay steady against the daunt.
Am I involved or committed, between the bookends I shall not want.
It’s now time to make a difference, not a time for status quo.
I’m still the captain of my ship, yet if needed I’m willing to row.
There will be a new horizon, so stay steady against the daunt.
Am I involved or committed, between the bookends I shall not want.

The pathway there

The Enabler
It’s either I know or I don’t know, for thinking so fails me now.
What must I do, oh for a clue, a divine process proclaiming how.
There is such a Way to face all dismay, giving yourself as a laborer.
God given Steps, true students it preps, a greater perpetual Enabler.
With many a deed at first I don’t read, but hey, it’s just like the past.
Then the picture appears confirming my fears, I left the guidebook til last.
There is such a Way to face all dismay, giving yourself as a laborer.
God given Steps, true students it preps, a greater perpetual Enabler.
Then I find, there’s a deeper mind, ever so subtle so pure.
Then I can see with joy and with glee, perhaps I have found my cure.
There is such a Way to face all dismay, giving yourself as a laborer.
God given Steps, true students it preps, a greater perpetual Enabler.
It removes my pride and tempers my hide, a mystery within the paces.
Now in my striding there’s such an abiding, removing all my past faces.
There is such a Way to face all dismay, giving yourself as a laborer.
God given Steps, true students it preps, a greater perpetual Enabler.
It’s not just chance, not happenstance, my relationship engaged not varied.
Oh so connected, internally affected, to the New Message I am married.
There is such a Way to face all dismay, giving yourself as a laborer.
God given Steps, true students it preps, a greater perpetual Enabler.
