Poetry’s Point


What is the point of poetry?

Sans the artful fluff

It is the astute writer’s way

to get his point across

In fewest words possible

Within a world growing as 

Attention span is shrinking.


With that in mind,


Christ is forever King

Bow before Him now.

Life’s highest in calling

Eternal, His don’t disavow.

When you greet Him

He says I always knew

My reluctant poet Fin

Would finally send Me you.

(He calls me Fin,

For within Him I’m without sin).




1 John 5:11-12 tells us: “And this is the testimony: God has given us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. Whoever has the Son has life; whoever does not have the Son of God does not have life.”





Reflective thought on blogging: Do you think perhaps after a twenty-year run, the personal blogging train, so many boarded back at the station, has finally run out of track? I have witnessed many interesting blog authors disappear, many of them in this past year.

  1. Well G. W. First of all , really good poem. So true.
    2nd, for the record, I was dragged onto that blogging train (That’s my story and sticking to it as they say) and have been looking for a place to jump off after every post.

        1. Sorry, Gar. I this minute found it in my spam filter!

          I really do understand your position about blogging, and I agree. If I had the same choices I, without doubt, would choose your preference.

  2. Many loose their touch. Many start writing due to some emotional toil and want to feel lighter. And those who stick are the ones who write because they simply want to write and write with passion.

    Lovely poem
