going to Church ? (poem-iscuity)

by JR Hager

I never left

where I came from

where I'll be from

born into another

will be there next

I never left Church

It's all arounds

preaching abounds

this spaceship Earth.

I never left

where I'm standing

where I'm landing

grass tickling toes

snow numb toes

or stepping aside

my feet are on Church

It's all arounds

preaching abounds

trekking Terra Earth.

by JR Hager

I never left

where I'm seeing

where I'm being

between every blink

beauty's eye-full truth

blossoms from heaven

I always see Church

It's all arounds

preaching abounds

eyes on Terra Earth.


by JR Hager
by JR Hager

I never left

where I'm all days

no special days

praying all-ways

communal coexist

psalms heard scriptures

Nature hymns my ears

I never left Church

It's all arounds

preaching abounds

our holy Terra Earth.

John, your last name kinda sums up your poetic technique...your words sound like the wind drifting through dangling chimes...you are a "Windbell". Voted up, beautiful, interesting and awesome.

Thank you, randslam, you helped me feel good about myself. Hope some of 'That' bounces back to you, space brother.

Thank you for letting me know, izettl, hug yourself.

Thank you much, Fennelseed, my cheeks are red. Wish we were closer I'd drive to squeeze ya. Best to you today.

What is HALALOUIA? For awhile there I thought you were Hawaiian. Is it aboriginal?

Take care.
