Come, Mystery Love

May mother love from your
master matrix maker Love
move me to mercy.

Love, be my momentum,
memory’s mirthful membrane,
mourning’s mentor, melancholy’s muse.

Come, Mystery Love, from
music’s unmeasured margins;
be muscles’ mantra.

Longing to Learn Love


Longing to learn Love
I listen for lullabies
in sleepless preludes.

Loony with laugh lines,
mellow by this little lake
we look for Your Light.

Often still lonely,
mulling Your elegant Law
I leap to life, Love.

Agent of Love

Genesis and ageless agent of Love:
Regenerate us; we are in danger,
jeopardized, jumpy, jostled and jostling.

Gentle, joyful, generous genius:
Rejuvenate us with jazz and jasmine;
we are junkies, jokers, unjust judges,
gypsies on a journey to the edges.

Imagine Love

Imagine Love
igniting wild
ions and isotopes:
vibrant, alive
in child’s eyes!baby

Love shines lithe and blithe,
immense yet intimate
and immanent,
lined with irony,
inviting, indicting.
Idols inquire why;
Love sighs in reply.

Ivy IQ guys
input ideas,
design icons,
isolated inside,
imbibing wine,
blind to Love’s prize
till it’s time to cry.

How We Hunger

Heaven’s Huge Love whose harmony haunts us,
Holy, Hidden One, we need help and hugs.
History’s hub, divine-human hinge, on high
hills we hunt, sing hymns, seek hints of you, Love.
Here, Jesus, hear and heal her hope-starved heart;
hold our hands, Love; hush his heady harangues.
How we hunger for your love, Holy Host!

Grand, Gorgeous Love


Grand, gorgeous Love, you
gleam in golden galaxies.
God, we gaze, agog.

Through geysers of grace
we glimpse your glorious goal:
guilt-grief’s gamut gone.

Gather us, Guardian;
ground, govern, guide us in Love.
We greet you gladly.

Fluent Love

Fervent Fire of Love,
flare forth where faith is faint
and fear frustrates.
Fuel family fellowship;
forge fresh friendships, Love.

Father of Fluent Love,
forgive our fault flings
for fractures and false fronts.
Finish our fighting;
transform us, Love.

Fix our focus,
Loving Physician.
Fasting from fake food
we feast with your famished
foolproof followers.

Fathomless Love,
fragrant free-range flower,
your fruit fulfills us;
its flavor foretells
festival forever.
