I’m starting a new series…backwards!  THAT IS…when it is read, it will be in proper order.

The series is poetry about  time spent in a mental health “lock-down” facility.  Any ressemblance to real life is purely intentional…some names have been changed or modified to Protect The poet!  🙂




(A Haiku)

Growing tree branch,

Shed leaves healing nations…*

They go from THREE WEST..out!


  • .*..leaves for healing…see The Book of the Revelation 22: 1-2
  • (NOT a haiku!)
  • Quick as the morning’s mist,
  • Memory faded fast…
  • Kie a dream from which we awake
  • Some experiences don’t last.
  • Names of persons encountered,
  • Were lost in misty mind fog…
  • Acts iof mmortal kindness
  • Are kept in Heaven’s log.
  • To his friends of that short time
  • Whose names are fading fast…
  • Remember me however you can,
  • Till the final lot is cast!
  • –Jonathan Caswell

About Jonathan Caswell

Poet, author, servant of God the Heavenly father and the Lord Jesus Christ...working out his salvation with fear and trembling. - Not trusting in his own deeds, but depending totally upon the finished sacrificial work of Jesus Christ to be, by God's reckoning, a new creature, clothed in Christ's righteousness...which mortal humankind can never attain by their own weak efforts, apart from faith in Christ's work on our behalf. - College-educated, yet wise enough to see that what a man does will not be his ultimate identity nor affect how God sees him or her. - Called by God to do a very difficult thing...apart from God's grace, mercy and love the sinner (which we all--by nature--are) but hate the sin, which is only paid through Christ, God's Son, - My own God-given gift is that of being a Poet..showing that in all parts of life...God has a loving part in hard as that is to always understand or perceive...given life's realities! Come join me on my journey of discovery?.
