In My House of Three

Updated on November 5, 2014

There never was a body

In my house of Three

That gave me infinitesimal right

Except the will of me.

If, I swear, mine eyes could talk,

They'd never curse my mouth,

But blind me most to sputtered truths

I rather like myself.

Heaven's only sweetest

When I deny myself.

To do I use my intellect;

For I have nothing else.

That God is thus residing,

And heaven's gate nearby,

I lie still and feel His breath -

He wakes my soul to fly.

    Thank you billybuc, but I hardly think myself along those lines. Yes, you are right; the house being the body and the spiritual vessel through which He refines us - and then the surrender we all eventually succumb to when we choose. He is the poet, actually. The plan perfect in a very poetic way, right? Glad to see you here. :)

    When I saw the title I immediately thought of the Holy Trinity....I agree with earlier are a gifted poet.

    Hi Dear Cynthia!

    So thrilled to see you here this day and writing such brilliant and beautiful poetry. Wow, you are a gifted poet. I really enjoyed reading.

    I hope and pray you are well. I have not been on HP much myself, as far as publishing anything.

    Voted up ++++ tweeting, pinning and sharing

    God bless you.

    Clark and Perspys - Thanks for stopping by! Yes, I've been away awhile due to lack of access, mainly.

    Clark - So nice to hear from you! Last time we were in touch you were hacked! Obviously no more. Tried LinkedIn but I have to upgrade to do what I want so I am hardly on it. No, I insist, my poetry is a work in progress and I consider I lucked out like in a fluke if only you stop by to comment! Ha ha! Seriously, love seeing you here and for your kind words. See you around bud!

    Perspys - I've been missing you too! I had so many challenges on the computer I had to get away. I am mostly on Twitter these days so please follow me [you too Moon!] @ctaggart203. Hopefully, I will have time to put some things together and see everyone again! Thanks for coming by Perspys and for your kind comment.

    Hey there, L'il Buddy--good to hear your voice again! I enjoyed your poem. Sincere, from the heart, poetically well-balanced. And you say you're no poet? That's a hasty judgment. Be well, my friend.
