About

I drew a rose
took off my clothes
swam in a creek
went from wild to meek
and down in a cave
the dark taught me to behave
as holy chastisement
with subtle advertisement
and lost my imagination
in the wilderness of expectation
I thought I knew love
though wasn’t looking above…

    Hi Gospelisosceles, Thanks for liking my comments on “The Indecisive Chicken…” piece. Would like to share some of my original stuff with you but do not want to put my contact details on a public so. So if you could suggest a way around this to me I’d appreciate it. There… I admitted it…. I’m not much of a techie. But I’m an eager learner.

      Hi Wayne, I just clicked on your name and was able to see your blog: Eden Caribbean. Were these the writings to which you were referring?

      • 1waynecampbell · June 6

        Good morning. Sorry for the delay getting back to you. Yes thanks, those are the writings I referred to.
        They are for the most part the cry and appeal of my heart to and for fellow born again ones to go on, go deeper into knowing and being known in Christ. That will always be a part of writings in one way or another but; joy of joys!… I’m in a place of greater appreciation of knowing myself and others in Christ as our life. I’m enjoying all kinds of everything as my spirit guided by His Spirit is examining, approving and embracing all things excellent.

        But enough about me my sister. How have you been?

    Very interesting and original. Thanks for the like.

    I think gospel-isosceles is a great name musically and wonder about how it came about. An isosceles triangle being a triangle with two equal sides, does it, being the name of a triangle which has three sides, have something to do with the Trinity?

    • gospelisosceles · March 17, 2016

      I hope to allude to the image of the Trinity, but ‘Gospel Equilateral’ doesn’t quite have that ring, does it? Several years ago I wrote a very short story and named the main character, a nun, Sister Isosceles. The writer’s group folks loved the name, and so when I started compiling my conversion story, my testimony, I just went with Gospel Isosceles for the title. As a musician and poet, the assonance and consonance appeals to my ears; but I also wish to invoke that image of Father, Son, Holy Spirit AND offer a solacing possibility that they don’t always play an equal role in our lives AS WE EXPERIENCE THEM, as iconic images would have us believe. This unconventional way of looking at God also gives me the freedom to express the unconventional way I came to God, or rather, how God came to me. Thanks for the question, Mario!

        I look forward to reading your posts and of your experience of God. In the photograph of you, you seem to gazing to infinity, to something, or some-Being, beyond the world, with a happiness that can only come from a vision of God, not, of course, in a literal sense, a vision with the eyes, but through the soul, of which we’ve heard it said that the eyes are windows. As you are a musician, I thought you might enjoy, if you haven’t seen them, my Piano Mantras, about the joy of learning to play the piano:

      If that’s what you see in this picture, Mario, then you too know God. Namaste, my friend. (Love Chopin:)

    Thanks for reading my blog. I’m enjoying looking around your blog world and getting to know you a bit. Hugs!

    • gospelisosceles · April 12, 2016

      When I first became awakened to the truth of God, the imagery of God’s whole creation being one eternal cosmic orgasm was everywhere. I saw this beautiful consummation in everything and assumed others did too. That is why I was curious about your blog. Maybe you saw this too? And, as a fellow Christian, I was intrigued. Thanks for reading my posts:)

      • orgasmicsecrets · April 12, 2016

        I’ve been relating to God and experiencing him since my youngest memories. As life has progressed and my experiences have evolved and deepened, in everything, I see God’s beauty and love is far deeper and wider than I can even imagine. I’ve been walking this breathtaking road of spiritual exultation and soul expansion for a few years now that has lifted me outside of traditional christianity. Still though my heart burns for Christ, God the father and the Holy Spirit. I feel the orgasmic expansiveness in all of creation and how eternal energy permeates every aspect. I wish I could express it more clearly. In my gut, I know “the Church” has sold short the truths of God and this includes sexual expression. There are so few people I can discuss this with as its deemed heretical or unseemly or some other such nonsense. Funny thing is I completely understand that mindset as I was steeped in it from teen years onward. Surely the mysteries of Christ and the wonders of our God should make us more brave and without shame to explore the depths of all things. I do not know if I’ve answered you adequately yet it is from my heart.

          I can understand where you are coming from. I too have reached many of the same conclusions you allude to. We try and squash God into a box of our own imaginings. The fit will never be right

    I’ve been meaning to stop by your page for the last couple of days…and, wow, am I glad I did! What an awesome “about me” page… I’ve never been very good at interpreting poetry, so I won’t pretend…I’ll straight up declare my ignorance, but I am curious if you are describing a baptismal experience?

    • Gospel Isosceles · July 19

      I’m sorry, I don’t know how I haven’t noticed this until now. Thanks for the compliment and yes, I do allude to a rather unorthodox baptism and maybe I’ll write a post in detail about that Holy Spirit-filled day, but just recently I posted the entire poem from which this ‘About’ page is extracted. Here it is if you’d like to read: https://gospelisosceles.wordpress.com/2016/06/27/i-drew-a-rose/

      God bless you, brother.

  8. enetteventer · June 6

    I love the poem you wrote here. My sister (who is the real poem lover) read it out loud over my shoulder and is now of the same opinion that this poem is beautiful.

    • Gospel Isosceles · June 6

      Thank you both! This is actually the beginning of a poem that I have not yet published on the blog, but I thought these lines were fitting as an introduction to who I am, especially as author of a blog focusing on learning humility and spiritual conversion.

  9. Shadeau · June 22

    I’m thrilled to have discovered you–God brings the most interesting people into our lives! God bless you abundantly.

    Thank you for liking Tuning in to God’s Frequency. I like your creativity. I might have been more creative once, before law school squeezed every ounce out of me. Peter Hitchens, brother of the famous atheist Christopher Hitchens, said after his brother’s death, “those who choose to argue in prose, even if it is very good prose, are unlikely to be receptive to a case which is most effectively couched in poetry.”
