Christmas Blessings Flying at Me

My family, daughter, son-in-law and their amazing children are coming for Christmas. And, my new book of Poetry, Beyond the Waters, will be available on within a fortnight. Here’s a taste:

Where Do Angels Come From

I think it’s great that God resides in all of us
but there are times when we need more specificity
Like how is God in you the same or different from the God in me
And what happens when either of us can’t get through to God
because we hurt too much to feel the healing spirit
without the help of mortal touch

I think that’s how Angels come to be
I know for sure you’ve Angeled me
which is why I chose this Angel for my Christmas Tree
She may not look at all like you
but she portrays the spirit of the perfect little girl
who could not help but come from love
could not help but bring me comfort
could not help but feel my joy
and still can’t help herself from watching over me

Going Home

In death as in life
I rejoice to be a man going home
With no courses to plot
No tables of time to be wrought
No space to constrict or expand
No shore between sea and land
I do not fear to walk alone
I rejoice to be a man going home

  1. My Dear Friend,
    I can’t wait to buy your new book of poems, and copies for friends. In fact, I just shared the first poem in this post with a friend with whom it will resonate this Christmas. Your poetry always resonates with me, as I know it does with so many, I wish you the very best Christmas with your family, Garry!


    1. A very belated thank you Robin. I just found this page in my blog/website. I feel blessed to be your friend, to follow you on Twitter, and to know you share my poems with your friends.
