ESCAPEE POETRY!

Escaping the house,

Home Health Aide for my spouse…

Give her girl time

Priority with mine,

Too noisy and crowded our house!

Writing in no extra light,

Sunlight from windows is bright…

Snow reflecting

To my eyes connecting,

Perfect for poet insight!

An A.A. friend passing by,

Stopping to quote me his line…

We’ve talked before

A.A.’s his door,

To an alcoholic’s new life.

He thinks we’re both ministering,

I suppose we do, separately…

He with A.A.

And me with what I say,

He works toward eternity!

–Jonathan Caswell

A.A.  is Alcoholics Anonymous…an organization for those battling addiction to alcohol.

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 strength...to 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 it...as hard as that is to always understand or perceive...given life's realities! Come join me on my journey of discovery?.
