Embers of Love


The longings of my soul
An oblivion to all
The sobs of my heart
You’ve seen only in part
Will your heart bow
To the embers of my love?
My love for you can’t be contained
My brain needs to be trained
To stop this restlessness
Why do I Obsess?
I resent your busyness
unaffected is my fondness

Put an end to my restraints
Just listen to my complaints
I am bereft of slumber
With mild expressions of anger
Rend my heart to see
My desperate plea
Take me to a state of glee
To a world of dreams, I want to flee
Where you and I can talk for hours
Those moments will just be ours
When you satiate my thirst
And for a while, I’d be first
Your compliments, I treasure
Your presence gives me pleasure
you are my gift from heaven
In you, I find a safe haven

Transcendence


The emergence of AI

Yesterday, we were
Today, we are
Tomorrow, an uncertainty,
A dream to be.

As for man,
A blade of grass
When the wind passes
He vanishes, his memory naught

We dance with abandon,
Our feet serenading –
The sands of time,
The grand old serpent

Ever curious and thirsty
We’ve claimed this rock
Named and maimed
The things therein.

In singularity we trust
The spirit of the new world
Man’s firstborn, deified
His tower of Babel

Abaddon, banished –
With the quiver of immortality
God’s had his word –
But now we know

The tree of knowledge divined,
The morning star smiled –
Unfurled the laws of nature
Beauty beyond the eye

Math our adopted father
Physics our adopted mother
Their children, our guardian angels
We thirst for their benevolence

Erudite and sapient
He scoffs at the old book
It’s author, a fractured myth
It’s messenger, delusional

He gazed into the night
His palm stretched out
Reaching for the stars
This rock was not enough

Beyond the outfield
Stood a lone figure
His presence
Indescribable

lightning paled
Science failed
Measureless, limitless
Unceasing passion

A mother’s tear
A father’s longing
A husband in love
Patience untold

When knowledge failed
Wisdom prevailed
Where evidence faltered
The heart feels –
what the eyes don’t see

His invisible image –
Clear as daylight
Storms through –
The heart that discerns

AIGOD

The Enticement


With lascivious eyes
Lustful whispers and sights
Expressions mesmerizing
And words enticing
She wooed him to adultery
He fled from debauchery
Not listening to flattery
Giving God the glory!

She was capricious
But also tenacious
Daily she lured him
He gave not to her whim
She waited for a chance
Wouldn’t snap out of her trance
But one day, she caught up to him
She said “Come to bed with me”

He refused her command
Left his cloak in her hand
When the master came
She played a game
He listened to her claim
On Joseph, she laid the blame
She showed him the cloak
His anger awoke

The slave was confined
But God was with him
He exalted the Hebrew
Released him from shackles
made him a blessing
A revealer of dreams
A savior of the land
A tool in God’s hand!

A poem by Maria Joseph

Thank You!!!


The delightful flowers
A multitude of colors
The fluttering butterflies
Brilliant blue skies
And morning sunrise
A feast for my eyes!
The bird’s that sing
They’ve no suffering
The majestic mountains
Grand among creations
The sound of the oceans
Relieves my tensions

Friends that care
When I despair
A brother’s dare
To stay in prayer
A carefree sibling
He is my darling
A dad who was strong
Through struggles that were long
A mom who encourages
Through life’s many stages
My beautiful children
They are my crown
A soul mate who loves
When all else fails

The broken promises
That robbed my happiness
But lessons that were taught
Though feelings were hurt
The God whose compassion
Are new every morning
These are the things
I am most thankful for!!!

-A poem by Maria Joseph

Saving Grace


Unmerited forgiveness is what I received
From my Savior whose body was pierced
For my transgression, he was slain
His pain became my gain

My riches and treasures
They give me no pleasure
In a world that offers only tears

One day, my knee will bow
To his conspicuous love
One day my tongue will sing
Of his amazing grace
One day my feet will tread
Those precious paths of gold

One day, when he wipes my tears
Extinct would be my fears
When I see the lamb of God
Magnificently adorned
seated on the heavenly throne
