About this Christian Poet:
I'm a public school orchestra teacher in Enid, Oklahoma. I play the violin in the Enid Symphony Orchestra, and the mandolin with my friends; mostly Celtic and old-time music. Creative writing was my minor in college, and I truly love writing poetry.

Heaven's Olympics

God somersaults into our bewildered hearts,
Swims us smoothly through pools of perdition,
Vaults us effortlessly over poles of deceit.
Breathless, we sail through clean, blue sky--
He thaws the cold ice of denial,
Spins with us in triple axels of joy.
Souls spraying fountains of glittering diamonds,
We leap onto the highest platform;
Angels loop gold stars over and around us,
Laugh with delight, sing the celestial anthem.
