whimsy swim meet

along bank’s river

where snows fall twice

there flows fish ice

beneath the candling sky

of ceiling wax

a waxing seal

barks swimmingly in whalousy,

“’tis otterly ridiculous-ness, yes?”

      Jesus himself recognized the humble faith of a childlike spirit…and the freedom it gives! Thanks for your playful response and for sharing your free spirit here and with the world, my friend Fred!!

        Is No Free
        God Play


        To Slay
        Fear For
        Love To
        Flourish For
        Heaven i Believe
        In The Teachings Of

        Jesus about
        The Child’s
        EYeS And
        The Heaven

        Within Perhaps
        One Day The “World”

        Will Not
        Take It

        Not Wait

        Left Behind…
