 John's poems of...LIFE - LIVING &LOVE...JDJ

Can you even begin to --IMAGINE
standing shivering and wet up to your neck in flood cold dirty murking waters and you lost--EVERYTHiNG

Then when you escape and make it to the very roof TOP
you are getting soaked and wet even more, as this HURRICANE-HARVEY--the--torrential--heavy continuing rains just won't--STOP--STOP--STOP

As your on the TOP  of your Home --ALONE
you know that you LOST, your every procession that you have cherished and ever--KNOWN

And even in your DEEPEST and very DARKEST most DEVASTATED  moment  of --DESPAIR
the MOMENT, that you get  RESCUED, and brought to a  PLACE  of SAFETY, you know deep in your Breaking HEART, that GOD was THERE

Even THOUGH
your DEVASTATED  DOWN  and  LOW

Your ALIVE
and by the MERCY and GRACE of 
GOD in the HOLY. HEAVENS --you--HAVE--been--BLESSED--to--SURVIVE

Even though your EVERYTHING-everything-EVERYTHING--that-you-have-ever-ever-ever--OWNED--is--GONE
the--BIGGER--picture--is--that--you--know--that--you--have--been--BLESSED--to--SURVIVE--your--well--and--ALIVE--and--your--LOVING--FAITHFUL--HEART--sings-a--HALLELLEUIA--BEAUTIFuL--thankful--grateful--SONG

Even though all you had and owned is destroyed ruined and--GONE
you count your Every--BLESSINGS--great--and--small--and--now--deeper--than--the--flooding--rain--waters--your--deep-deep--DEEP--FAITH--HOPE--and--LOVE--CONFIDENTLY--COURAGEOUSLY--and--HUMBLY--GREATLY---BELONGS

A--new--STRENGTH--from--your--HEART--and--SOUL--you--FEEL
as--DEEPER--than--any--DEVASTATING---DANGEROUS---DEADLY--DESTRUCTIVE--DAMAGING--DOOMING-DEPRESSING-DEMEANING------Natural-disaster--------HURRICAINE--HARVEY-----you--will--rise--up--HOUSTON-TEXAS--stronger--greater--more--LOVING--FAITHFUL--and--stronger--bolder--braver--than--even--the--greatest--strongest-----ENDURING-----STEEL

HOUSTON--will--REGROUP-RECOUP--and--will--be--greater--and--stronger--and--more--united--than--ever--BEFORE
this--GREAT--CITY--will--REBUILD--GREATER--STRONGER--and--protect--every--HOME--SECURELY--from--ever--a--HURICAINE--as--HARVEY--with--FLOODING--WATERS--from--the--GULF--COAST--Trecherous--SHORE
