FOR/TO HOLLY: “JUST ANOTHER POEM”

It’s just another “look-see”

In where my mind wants to be…

Impossible dream

To plot and scheme,

I wish it were more than a dream!

Censors won’t allow words

Describing phallic verbs…

Able to expand

What’s given to man–

Stiffer and stronger disburse.

This wishing for something is real,

Unable to ardor reveal…

These words are coarse

With no real force,

If only for metaphoric appeal!

He’s scared of her motorcycle,

Has rarely rode on an eyeful…

The engine’s roar

He LONGS FOR MORE,

Which poor travel plans stifle!

–J.E.C.

About Jonathan Caswell

Poet, author, servant of God the Heavenly father and the Lord Jesus Christ...working out his salvation with fear and trembling. - Not trusting in his own deeds, but depending totally upon the finished sacrificial work of Jesus Christ to be, by God's reckoning, a new creature, clothed in Christ's righteousness...which mortal humankind can never attain by their own weak efforts, apart from faith in Christ's work on our behalf. - College-educated, yet wise enough to see that what a man does will not be his ultimate identity nor affect how God sees him or her. - Called by God to do a very difficult thing...apart from God's grace, mercy and strength...to love the sinner (which we all--by nature--are) but hate the sin, which is only paid through Christ, God's Son, - My own God-given gift is that of being a Poet..showing that in all parts of life...God has a loving part in it...as hard as that is to always understand or perceive...given life's realities! Come join me on my journey of discovery?.
