Zacchaeus Innocent

Oh pure son of Abraham, your place set

In Heaven, you gave this day, man of taxes

Sinner of one half your riches, then four

Times, what you have stolen, as this child,

Boy gave his life, now is clean in Jesus,

Christ our Lord has given this boy, man

Simple ignorance made clean, he may

Not return, but gave to boy of six,

Understanding in his Heavenly Father,

Such that when such urge should,

Take hold, the boy need only pour

His soul out upon this Ground

Of true supplication into God’s vessel, His

Understanding of The Cross, our Lord’s

Forgiveness, and Jesus making clean

Another urge, this boy at age 67,

Found healing, knelt in mind, in spirit

Before the Lord, for both legs broken

Never of the Lord, in supplication

He became son of righteousness

Like his worldly father who had repented,

Become pure like innocent Zacchaeus

To thank our Lord in complete gratitude.

I was a University and community college instructor. I am an ordinary man writing for artistic reasons, and simple taste-- blogs are an answer to high priced self-publishing. Walt Whitman had to print his 1000 paper books himself because in 1855 poetry did not sell. It does not sell now unless you have a Pulitzer Prize, and even then, the poet usually makes a living in other ways than poetry. In all ages there have been writers writing out of their own reasons. I am an older man with fewer computer skills than my daughter. Blogs let me reach an audience missed by books, and I stand a better chance to reach a wider audience. My two self-published books, Winter from Spring, and Meditations on Gratitude, Charles E Taylor, MFA, and a third coming out sometime next year, through The Book Patch: For Patty Brown... satisfy needs to hold books, and, yet, still read as electronic books which are easier to produce than paper books. The blog allowed me to write a compendium of my writing. I can combine composition with production. Wordpress provides word processing with production. When the writer finishes writing they press publish and then a finished piece. I’m happy to present to you a slice of my personal writing. Do enjoy what you read!
