Sparkling waters
On a moonlit night
Much unknown
Beneath its surface
Much unknown
Above heaven’s canopy
On shore
I feel familiar sand beneath my feet
One step after the other
Walking into the unknown
Secure on familiar ground


The air is pristine
Cool and crisp
I feel the sharp edge of winter
Cutting in
A welcome change
From summer’s heat
Seasons come and go
They turn so quickly
Like day and night
Reminding me
How beautiful
How fleeting
Life is

Valley of multitudes

Land of my birth
Soil of my heart
Earth under my feet
Child running free
Upon this grass
You have won me over
Your voice on dry river beds
Echoing on mountain heights
Wild and jungle raw
No one has tamed you
Though many have tried
Your fierce battle fight
Held through the night
Still you have waited
While rushing waters have fallen
Pouring over millenniums
You must hear
You must know
Salvation’s story
Saviour’s voice
Healing soil
Healing soul


Growing old

Grow old graciously
Continue to listen
Keep Gods grace truths
They are priceless
Who wants to grow up
To be an old fool
No longer listening to the wise
Or keeping their advise hidden in
Your heart
Who can defy gravity
Who can breathe under water
Heavens oxygen flows toward
The humble heart
Making wise the simple
Giving light to the eyes
Leading the prisoner toward the throne
The older we get
The more we should thirst
The greater our filling
The deeper the reservoir
The wiser we become
The brighter our light
Grow old graciously
That many may sit under
The shade of your tree

Life and death

Greed can’t stop
It’s sulphurous
Burning deep layers
Into our earth
Stripping away the green cover
Of beauty
Chocking the air we breathe
Green backs cover those
On super power trips
Leading along paths of destruction
Dare I say demonic
You can bank on it
Melt down with it
How can anything good come out of
It’s viral
Running its course through
Every sphere of humanity
Polluted to the last breath
Squeezing out the last dime
When is enough enough
With greed
Like a crazed addict killing for the next fix
This monster is grotesquely powerful
Humanity saddles upon it
Riding it’s waves of logos and brands
The greedy have no compassion for the poor
They exploit them
Consider them a waste of oxygen
As they cut down rain forests
Club seals
Wage war over another barrel of oil
Trading flesh
Killing the innocent
Forming alliances with drug cartels
The earth is chocking
As we breathe our last breath
Yes we
We are all responsible
All given charge
A mandate to rule
This present reign of man
Reflects how we have ruled
Take charge
Take courage
Take control
Do what is right
Rid your heart of every trace of greed
Once this toxin runs through your veins
The poison destroys
There is an antidote
There is a Saviour
His life destroyed
So I can live
His life raised
So I can take eternal breaths
His life changes me
From the inside out
Replacing greed with extravagance
Generosity that touches the poorest of the poor
Bringing healing to our land
How difficult it is for the rich
To enter the kingdom of God
Bow your knee to God
Surrender your heart
Cry out

The permanence of Your love

What legacy will you hand down
To generations
You’ll never meet
What will they come to know
How will you help them
Into their future
What are you building
That will stand the test of time
The only thing
That will never fail or fade away
Is the love of God
Build upon this foundation
On Christ the solid rock
Then your legacy will stand


I am a captive prisoner
Enslaved to freedom’s call
His love is bound around me
To help me when I fall
To raise me up
To hear His voice
To see the beauty of His face
To live and breathe in living wonders
Touched by loving grace
