Broken moonlight —
Shattered on the ocean
As the tumult rolls toward the shore.

Broken dreams —
Shattered in my waking hours.
We are here, but each alone.

Broken moonlight —
Shattered on the ocean.
I am sitting on the sand;
I’m also made of dust,
And I’ll be washed away
(Every grain)
When the tumult comes.

"NEW YEAR'S EVE, 1967"
by JTK.CA
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

New Year's Eve, 1967, 8:44 p.m., Central Standard Time,
Something happened that I will never forget,
Something that I cannot remember.
I was born.

New Year's Eve, 1967,
Nine months since I had become human,
Since I became I,
Since out in the uterine cosmos,
God outstretched His invisible hand
And said,
"Let there be Jonathan Tad Ketchen,"
And there was Jonathan Tad Ketchen;
New Year's Eve, 1967,
The fruit of nine months of
Secluded growth, protected by God's guiding purpose,
Could finally be seen.
And as life from the darkness entered the light,
The cord to that chapter of my life was severed.
New challenges awaited,
Especially
Breathing on my own.

New Year's Eve, 1967,
Mom missed partying the night away;
The temperature outside hung at negative fifty-eight degrees Fahrenheit;
Flin Flon, Manitoba's dot on the map was covered by snow;
And something I cannot remember
But will never forget happened.
I was born.

"WALK WITH ME
(Dedicated to Melinda 'Cosmos Millennium' Brittingham)"
by JTK.CA
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Walk with me
Upon the shores
Of life

My friend
At night we wander
In each hall and room and
On each dark yet shimmering street
Upon this airy mountaintop
As we breathe in life's dark mysteries
In search of promised light

Walk with me
Out to the shore of heaven

Tad's Note: In the late 1980's, Melinda "Cosmos Millennium" Brittingham was my sidekick at Covenant College (http://www.covenant.edu), on the "airy mountaintop" of Lookout Mountain, Georgia, U.S.A., and she will always hold a very special place in my heart. While I was there, I was a United States Resident Alien, and having been born in Flin Flon, Manitoba, Canada, Cosmos liked to call me her "friend Tad, who is an alien from Flin Flon." As a result, I titled the first self-published book of my poetry, "MUSINGS OF AN ALIEN FROM FLIN FLON." I gave Melinda the nickname Cosmos, while at Covenant, because it just fit her personality so perfectly. Whenever I'd see her in the distance, I'd chant in a loud deep voice, "COSMOS!" I'm really glad we're still in touch via the internet and the telephone. She's truly one of a kind, and God has truly blessed me with her friendship.

“THE BEAM” by Jonathan Tad Ketchen (JTK.CA)

I am the sin
Christ’s hands were nailed to.
I am the beam
He carried there
Until its evil became too heavy
For the tortured Son of God to bear.

A passer-by was forced to carry
The cursed tree to the Place of the Skull,
Where God’s own Son would die for me
To prove all of my striving null.

I am the beam
Christ’s hands were nailed to.
I am the nail that skewered His feet.
I am the sword that pierced His side.
I am a disciple who did retreat.
I helped fuel Satan’s pride.
I began the shouts to crucify.

God’s love and grace
Are all that save me.
Christ’s sacrifice
Unseals my doom,
Unlocks the Gates of Hell
To free me
To enter Streets of Gold.

Heaven is too rich to earn —
Inheritance the only way.
Accept the gift of eternal life
For which only Christ could pay.

“WAVERLEY PARK is my PLANETARIUM” by JTK.CA ::: I often do my superzoom moon and planets photography in Guelph, Ontario’s Waverley Park, within walking distance from my place. I used my 63 times optical zoom SONY DSC-H400 digital camera for these shots. The close-up shots of JUPITER WITH 4 JOVIAN MOONS and EARTH’S MOON were shot at the full 63 times optical zoom, which will still likely be shrunken by the time it reaches you, here on social media.

“ONSLAUGHT” by http://JTK.CA

You were a tornado within a hurricane.
Devastation was your breakfast.
We only knew you for a short time,
But you will live with us forever.

“U.S. DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION” by http://JTK.CA

The U.S. Department of Education has a form to forgive my U.S. student loans due to my PERMANENT AND TOTAL DISABILITY (Severe Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder), but they denied my claim because my Doctor is Canadian. Well, I am Canadian, Dumb Asses! Also, I’ve gone through two bankruptcies, one U.S., and later, one Canadian since I returned to my native Canada. In both of those, they wouldn’t forgive my student loans. The U.S. student loans are U.S. government-backed Federal loans. And the U.S. government makes the bankruptcy laws to say, We’ll forgive all your debts, except the ones to us. Jonathan Tad Ketchen (http://JTK.CA)

“THE EDGE OF NIGHT”

I title this one, “THE EDGE OF NIGHT,” for the nicely dimpled crater line on the day/night terminator. It was also the title of a soap opera that was on TV when I was a kid.

I shot the lunar photo, naked, from inside my OPEN patio door with the inside light turned off. A dream moment realized: Standing naked inside AND outside AT THE SAME TIME while pursuing my lunar photography passion. :o) ♥
