Andrew, Brother of Life

My mind like a river rushes forth, only creek

Into day, I’ve lost yesterday, Winter gone

God can see, not rushing drops, Water in me

Water divine, I long

for my growth of green

Well into Creek Bed banks, brown rising Life it’s Water

Spring of this creek, called Turtle Creek Well done servant

Faithfully, racing I am Rock under time supporting sands

My water, my leading lifetime unrecognized until time

Don’t let me lose like more then green, out, Peter

At Sea of Galilee, catch he walks then sinks hand

Raised Leaves have turned from brown in fall, into Life

He is life, I bring His life to life, unending, Him reaching

Amazing freedom out brother up unrestrained water

Not held, I am light refracted in droplets Bring

Him up Of melted faith, forgiven little fathoms undone

Brother up into oxygen, hydrogen, no legacy, is Risen

Life, Andrew, alone finding Him whose name no more

Will last uniting His only sunshine refracting brother

In Rain, sun coming in my banks, washing, forgotten

Photographed in greatness He is Light, written sheets

Then more than ten-thousand photons in microns less

Ten million Droplets bringing life, more millions

Energy A Billion Trillion from Sun Dance radiation,

Shown into day More night I bring Freedom I’ve found

To their Shoots, this is spring, God’s most beginning

Seeds into earth of winter, sleep opened guiding leaves

Other life to Him, yes, they are awake, lighting path

Like Peter looking who gazing, I knew my brother teaching

Needed Him, Around Sun, then stems from me risen

Emanuel awakened over land each shoot of Life

Up, Lord I need your energy, you for others, forgotten

Worked warmth into in universe, space brought bright

Into Life, I am eternal atoms, into life-giving part

I am neutrinos swirling, then apart You seep slowly

Into waking plants Your paradox of Life Light Living

Water new life in my banks for Him, Baptism shore

Remember I am Total Creek, I am Turtle tiny, Not

Forgotten Creek, others do not think upon me, I bring

Springtime Life conquering sleep of Winter

Rise into Him, Belief, I bring Him, I bring new

Life on March 20th now is always Spring this year

2019, Rotating into Vernal Equinox, His Life is in me

March 20th sundown begins Your Spring, Prism

Into New Moon, Dancing Light slipping night away

You are Him now overcoming, rising replaces

Death, He is newness in our Life, I show His New Birth

Water into Baptism from John living in wilderness

He is tempted then into that wilderness, Finally

Son beyond temptation, still You are Spring of part,

New Life, of hearts out of tomb not how! Angles brings

Our Sun risen over land, perfect Life in us we live in You.

Peter Pilgrim, cathedral light broken air like a Dove

You overcame death, bowing out of waters onto our lives.

I was a University and community college instructor before retiring. I also worked in fast food restaurants, and retail stores. I am an ordinary man writing for because I want to write and because my education prepared me to write; BA English lit, MA English, EdS higher education, and MFA creative writing, free verse poetry and essays. Blogs are an answer to high-priced self-publishing. Walt Whitman had to self-publish his first 1000 copies of the 1855 edition of Leaves of Grass because in 1855 poetry did not sell. Most poets make a living in other ways than writing. Wallace Stevens was an insurance executive, and TS Eliot was a banker. Many writers teach, and always there have been writers who have written because they needed to express their thoughts and feelings. They wrote not necessarily to make money but to express "the old universal truths of the human heart" according to Faulkner. Here I reach a wider audience I missed than by self-publishing, and I stand a better chance to reach a wider audience for less expense than self-publishing. I self-published my first books, Winter from Spring, and Meditations on Gratitude; poetry and photo books which were easier to self-publish than to seek a not to seek a publisher company. This blog allows me to write for an interested audience because I write poetry and personal essays. I write for a friendly audience and present to you a slice of my writing. Perhaps you will enjoy what you read.
