Olive Branches

Poem By ~~~ Leaven ~~~

O ye noble Israel,
The precious fruit
Of Mine olive tree.

It grieves me such,
That I might lose thee,
For thy branches witherest away.

Though your root is strong,
Your leaves but fall
And littereth My vineyard floor.

So I shall prune unto Me
Ten wholesome branches
And scatter them about My vineyard

To grow unto themselves, righteous generations
Who shall bring forth sweet fruit
To My discerning pallet.

Such it shall be also,
That unto those two branches
That remaineth with the root

That I shall splice unto them,
The branches
Of a wild olive tree

Thus to preserve the root and trunk,
And, chance also
That those gentile generations,

May bring forth
Unto Me,
A tame sweet yield.

Thorns Of Truth

The thorns of a rose
Distract not from its beauty,
But causes the hand
To caress with tenderness,

Animal Sacrifice

Sacrifice unto me
The animal of thyself,
That tainted clothing
Of thy pride and flesh.

Breath

In the stillness of thy mind
Let a righteous wind blow
To give unto thee
The second breath of life,

Darkness Was Chosen

Know this…

All darkness is caused—
For light is always present.

Truth’s Kingdom

Casteth from thee thy pride,
And taketh thee up
The yoke of humility,
