No slow spoke, speed is of the essence !

The bicycle is meant to go fast
And you are the rider to obey it's command,
One word is you will never be

And in the green grass so fair
The lowly yellow dandelion wants to share

Morning dew on the grass clover so

5 Senses Part 2

My fellow poets
May I ask you a question ?
About the 5 senses that we have
Hear, see, touch, taste and smell !

If we could only have one
Which one would it be ?
Someone would say, none
I want my voice !

But what good is a voice

Knowing God ( revised )

God is the alpha and the omega,
The beginning and the end.
There is no beginning and no end
To God who is eternal.

God, the Father, the Son and Spirit,
He is a triune God ,three in One,
1+ 1+ 1 = 3 1x 1 x 1 = 1
Father is God,
