Bidding Adieu And Starting Anew: Revolutionary ConTEXTing Free Verse

July 13, 2017

How do I bid adieu
To a life
And a lifestyle
I’ve lived
For years?

It was never comfortable.
Too Often
it was not pure,
nor holy,
nor of good report.
Rarely was it
praiseworthy.

It was not
Where I needed
Or wanted
To be.

At last,
here I am,
at the edge
of potential new paths,
rising out of the muck
and mire of the past.

New vistas,
new visions,
new opportunities
are spread out before me,
inviting me,
filling me with hope
and belief:

I CAN do this!

And yet…
I don’t know how
to step away.
I’m afraid I’ll lose
my shoe,
Stuck
In the past’s muck.

Then I recall Him.
He asks me to change.
He will lift me
up
and out;
Place my unshod feet
On paths He has traveled,
to places He has gone.

I believe
that when I’ve walked
His paths,
barefoot,
long enough to have worn
all the muck from my feet,
they will be shod
through His Grace
and Mercy
with righteousness,
And I will be purified
and able
to be
in the vistas
I can now only
dimly
see.

They Always Return To A Clean Home: Revolutionary Email Free Verse Poem

April 3, 2016

putting up a martin house in Lake Winneconne, April 2016I listened to a Prophet’s voice
on the Sabbath,
then stood on a ladder/
in a frigid Wisconsin lake
to put up a clean bird house,
as directed by my father.

For us both,
holy, cleansing events
have happened
in that same water,
and purple martins
fly in
from Brazil
on the south wind.

My dad gave me a/
joyful high-five today:The/
martins’ scout found home.

I Love To See The Temple (Redo, Conclusion) – Revolutionary ImproVerse Song Poem

June 20, 2015

This is the final (I hope) version of “I love to see the Temple” redo that I wrote June 19th, and sang in the parking lot of the Payson, Utah Temple of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. The video is on youtube HERE: I Love to see the Temple (Conclusion) video.

DK Temple Return, Payson Utah LDS TempleI love to see the Temple.
I’m going back today.
I used to love to serve there,
but then I lost my way.

For the Temple is a holy place
which I will not defile.
I’m going back now I am clean.
It’s taken me awhile.
