Mesa Verde Challenging steps along hand hewn paths groping for answers…. Listening, unheard for ancient tongues time denies… Thirsting for understanding within derelict abodes… Under unforgiving skies, earth dislodges her charges.. Generations lost too times shrug, no memories remain… Motored, plastered, fallen monuments to those who came… Built out of pried, that failure soon denied… […]Read more "Mesa verde"

None but me, here see, hands held to welcome, hands unfettering these binding trials.. From the […]Read more "Darkness"
Sweeping around your face, rushing into ears with a roar… Living waters refresh the body, eternal eddies bear you to Heaven’s door… Once beneath the waves, your love, Christ saves… No sin outweighs the waters, these burdens with earth stays… Not long beneath the flood, caring hands return you here above… Only once a bodies […]Read more "Baptism"
