Captivated

Captivated

A Poem by Carole
"

I am without words when I think of my Father. I tried to capture a small portion of the magnificence & what I feel when I am with Him,...in His presence.

Emblazoned by the heart of

 

My Father

 

Captivated by heaven’s tender touch

Every pore of my being

Imbued with who He is

 

 

Mind blowing

 

Mind boggling

 

 

Knowing I am one of many

In the sea of His children

 

 

Who am I that He should care?

 

Who am I that He should touch

 

     my heart?

 

 

Moving me melodiously

Meticulously

 

 

Playing me like Heaven’s Violin

 

Causing my heart to sing a

Harmonious heavenly tune

Of yearning

 

 

For more of Him

 

 

Moving me

Wooing me

Encapsulating me

 

Like a chess piece

On the board of life

 

 

Totally submitted to

  

His Will

               His Purpose

               His Plan

 

 

Nothing compares

To the articulate God that He is

 

So Electrifying

       Tantalizing

          Moving

                        Spectacular

 

 

A brilliant display of fireworks

 

    Effervescent

        Dazzling

Enrapturing me in ecstasy

 

 

Eternal bliss like no other

In the presence of My Almighty King

The one who loves me

The one who bids me come

 

And never turns me away

 

 Nothing compares to the incredible euphoria

Of touching heaven & holding His hand

      His heart…

 

 

Adoring Him

      Loving Him,

 

 

Yearning to be with Him

     To touch Him

 

 

Even just for a moment

 

 

To feel my head upon His chest

 

To hear the beat of His heart

To be drawn close to the King

To hear His cries for humanity

 

 

His groaning

      His moaning

             His longing

 

 

For in that moment of time

 

 

I am enthralled by the

River of Life He produces

Within me

 

 

When that New Wine

 

Touches my lips

I am

 

Refreshed

     Restored

                Transformed

 

By the beauty of His Love

 

 

The waves of His Spirit

 

Rolling over me

AND

Producing a mellifluous tune

Within my soul

 

 

Making me crave His presence more and more

Making me want to search Him out

And press in to that heavenly place

That perfect place

       Where He is

 

 

 

He's Calling...

There is an intrinsic beauty in free flow poetry...I know some of you don't care for it. That's quite alright.
Feel free to review accordingly.

A standing ovation!! What beauty, I can feel His energy through your words. I know this is how I feel inside through loving Him. Carole, this is so truly beautiful and you have really expressed so well the feeling only Our Father can give us in our hearts! This is so true and refreshing and by reading this, I could filter out all the junk today and replace it with exhilarating exuberance! Keep sharing you gifts, they are astounding. He is putting it on your heart to share because He knows you can do so quite beautifully!

Your metaphors fit poignantly! They tie themselves in smoothly like ribbons and embellish the poem with a gentle, but vibrant touch. I think they are the strength of this poem -- or perhaps rather the strength lies in the inspiration behind it. Either way, you have a strident, yet soft and beautiful poem here. He is captivating to you just as the poem is captivating to me. My favorite was the violin metaphor because violins do have that 'yearning' sound and that is exactly what you described it as!
Religious poetry isn't necessarily my cup of tea. I read your latest about a moment standing still in time, and it wasn't quite to my liking. I think I like your poetry more so, as well as any poetry of this genre, when its driven by pathos rather than logos. It creates a stronger impact for your reader, and the images painted and created are breathtaking! Lovely details, and I compliment you on your strong word choice. You show strength and talent, with a colorful imagination. I thought of a rainbow when reading this - and it wasn't because of the colored words and lines. It was your diction.
Again, a great write.
Cheers.

This is so beautiful, a perfect description of the love and devotion you feel for your Maker. If I would have had this poem as a visual aid just a few nights ago, maybe I could have answered my brother in law's question to me, "can you tell me exactly WHY you believe in God??"

I just went blank. He doesn't believe. (yet.)

I thought for a moment and then compared my ignorance of the workings of Wall Street to his misunderstandings of Christianity. I told him that if I would have been given a lump of cash in my early 20's, and someone were to come to me, take me by the hand, show me how to invest and how to enjoy it and make it work for me, then maybe I would have a better attitude towards money, less fear, and reason to enjoy it. I told him, "This is like your tendency to brush the concept of God under the rug. You've never experienced Him for yourself. You never had anyone take you by the hand and help you to enjoy Him. You've never given Him a chance!"

He just got sort of quiet.

Yeah but this poem of yours is a much better illustration of why we believe the way we do. It's all about our love for Him, and His love for us. One must be open to experience it.

I do believe that this is the longest review, or comment, that I have ever left in my life.

Yup!

All we single gals dream about that kind stuff.

Love is what we all long for I pity you a little because once you'll find a guy to steal your hart, you realize that love is not exactly what you expected.

Nice work.
