Poems

On the next pages you can read mystery poems, written since 2016 up to now. Numerous rhymes are imprinted on my heart during night-time hours. Some poems come about when i’m pondering them during the day. I’ve experienced these impressions like a sound of an orchestra being whispered in the ear of a little child.

My wish to you, the reader will be, that the Author of this still small voice, may be allowed to imprint in you His beautiful secrets. And that you will sense His intimacy, as He makes Himself personnally real.

I was always more into color, but since these night-time experiences, i’ve grown especially fond of the Song of Solomon, as it has so many layers of meaning and wisdom :

Song Of Solomon

Song of Solomon, also known as Song of Songs of Solomon, Canticle and Canticle of Canticles, is a book of the Hebrew Bible.

The Song of Songs is love poetry and celebrates the beauty of a wedding and the joy of love between man and woman. In the ancient world all poetry was sung, and the Song is, in fact, the lyrics to a song collection. It was performed by singers consisting of a male lead, a female lead and a chorus. Song of Songs should probably be thought of as a concert piece created for an aristocratic audience in Solomon’s court. It is Solomon’s greatest song because it is about the love of Yahushua (the hebrew name of Jesus).

So read The Song of Solomon by the wonderful Passion Translation and get into this love story. Creation is a love story and your life is to be a love story between you and Abba Father. Your life can never be complete until you draw near to Him. So come into His chambers, into the secret place, until your life becomes a true love story sealed with a kiss of worship.

The biblical King Solomon was known for his wisdom, his wealth and his writings. He became ruler in approximately 967 B.C. and his kingdom extended from the Euphrates River in the north to Egypt in the south. His crowning achievement was the building of the Holy Temple in Jerusalem. Almost all knowledge of him is derived from the biblical books of Kings I and Chronicles II.

Solomon was the son of King David and Bathsheba. Solomon was not the oldest son of David, but David promised Bathsheba that Solomon would be the next king. When David’s elder son Adonijah declared himself king, David ordered his servants to bring Solomon to the Gihon spring where the priest anointed him while David was still alive. Solomon inherited a considerable empire from his father.

Solomon accumulated enormous wealth. He controlled the entire region west of the Euphrates and had peace on his borders. Kings I states that he owned 12,000 horses with horsemen and 1,400 chariots. Remains of stalls for 450 horses have in fact been found in Megiddo.

Although Solomon was young, he soon became known for his wisdom. The first and most famous incident of his cleverness as a judge was when two women came to his court with a baby whom both women claimed as their own. Solomon threatened to split the baby in half. One woman was prepared to accept the decision, but the other begged the King to give the living baby to the other woman. Solomon then knew the second woman was the mother.

People from surrounding nations also came to hear Solomon’s wisdom. He composed 3,000 proverbs and 1,005 songs. He wrote the Song of Songs, the Book of Proverbs and Ecclesiastes.

One of the most celebrated visits to Solomon was that of the Queen of Sheba, who came from southern Arabia. Historically, Arabia was a country rich in gold, frankincense, and myrrh. Solomon needed Sheba’s products and trade routes; the queen of Sheba needed Solomon’s cooperation in marketing her country’s goods. The queen came to Solomon with camels carrying spices, gold and precious stones. She asked him questions and riddles and was amazed at his wisdom.
