About this Christian Poet:
I am a Christian Chaplain from Northwestern Pennsylvania. I am mostly a grief-bereavment minister, and chaplain at our local nursing home. I also work with elementary children each Wednesday at a Bible club. I met Jesus when I was 9 years old, and He has seen me thru many years of life, many sorrows and losses, many disappointments...and many exhilarating worship experiences of deep joy. It is a great blessing, and a most wonderful adventure to serve the Living God. I am deeply humbled that He cared enough to send Jesus--and that God loved me enough to forgive my sins and accept me as one of His children. I have always been a writer, and have returned what talents He gave back to His service. May He be praised!

Denying Demise

Aged crone,
She walks along the highway
          mile after mile.
She says 'for her figure',
Yet I have seen
          the smile…

Vacant-brained, staring,
Manic in its width;
That "keeping spirit busy"
          To ward off
                    the hands
                              of death.
