Rhyme Walk

RHYME WALK

‘You are a spot on the ceiling of existence’
Too cold – try again
‘You are a cell in the kaleidoscope of history’
So so –  one more:
‘You are unique – and an individual specimen
of human kind’

You are a person as all person’s we be

One only is you
Never again is you
What will you do?

Can you spin like a top?
Can you cook in a pot?
Can you try harder next time?
Can you lie back and unwind?
Can you cause a storm?
Can you sleep in a dorm?

Norm – ally I wouldn’t ask you these things
But I am bringing it all back home
As we speak
So – rhyme just to ease your mind
I’m doing this to see what I find

I’m simply taking rhyme for a walk
(- as I allow myself this indulgence)
But really there ain’t much sense in my talk.

Now at this you might balk(?):
But I like the word-play game
Isn’t it a large part of the word domain?

None of this I hasten to add
Has any form of real wisdom
Or desirable worthwhile truth

I just like enjoying the pattern on the curtain
Of a Riddle’s-esque design

Colour enrichment
– with emotion – oft doth chime

………….

The language of truth and light
That’s a whole other ball game
No entertainment there
Just profound reverent awe of God

As the King of kings steps into the ring
against darkness
And fights to win your battle

Offering you His title:
Christ-one
To be received with thanks

But note – He is not mocked
in any shape or form

To Him I will answer –
But He is not too severe –
but severe still
towards all that destroys.

Glad I got here into something more
grave and profound

I lost the rhyme
but – true truth – has been found.

 

Friend for a season?

FRIEND FOR A SEASON?
(a Christian’s experience of new friends…)

Somebody took a chance on you
Took a chance that you were real and true

Somebody took a chance on you
That with all your profound talk
You were just ordinary and wouldn’t scoff

Wouldn’t use rough insensitive language
Whilst you gave your spiritual sandwich

They took a chance on you
On your sincerity and
despite your strongly held beliefs

Took a chance that you were warm and
not on a ‘superiority’ trip

They took a chance on you
and liked your friendship
even though their thoughts
went from
embrace to holding at arms length

They took a chance on you
but they haven’t been in touch lately…

I Corinthians 1/23 (Amplified)
