COME TO THE LIGHT…by Carl Gooch

Come to the Light

You think you know what’s real;
But that’s just how you feel.
If it doesn’t match how you want it,
You change it to make it fit.

If you are truly wise,
You will see through these lies.
Turn around and see,
What love He holds for you and me.

I am not trying force you
All I can do is speak what’s true.
If you do not want to hear,
That’s up to you my dear.

All that’s left for me to do,
Is to continue to pray for you.
There is a standing invite,
For all to come to the light.

POETS’ ENVY FOR PAINTERS

POETS’ ENVY FOR PAINTERS

tune: OH JERUSALEM)

The other night I saw the clouds

In the western sky…

One side was all golden,

The other…grey and white:

The white was stark against the grey

In huge cotton balls,

The right side…golden sun came through

As of from Heaven’s halls…

From the right side, golden light came through

As if from Heaven’s halls!

The sunset clouds,

Those sunset clouds…

Changing as we speak!

So hard to describe in poetic terms.

Except with tongue-in-cheek!

The scene kept changing as I watched,

The golden slowly dies,

Cotton candy darkened

While lit up from inside…

The cloud bank slowly lost its light

While lit gold from inside!

Oh sunset cloud,

Oh sunset clouds,

Covering God’s holy light!

Keep changing into the darkness

Providing an art’s delight…

Keep changing ito darkness…

Providing artistic delight!!!!!

THE NIGHT WATCHES

THE NIGHT WATCHES

Illumined magnifying glasses

Help this saint find passages…

Rendering God’s Light

In the watches of night,

Enriching one as time passes.

Remembering doctrine ain’t enough,

Knowing where to find it is tough…

Making it up

Fills God’s fury cup,

God’s word  diluted by fluff.
