Eleventh Collection of Seven Dailies

Another collection of seven dailies from the Facebook Page!

The Rod

Raise the Rod of the Ruler of wild things
Worthy of waking the waste to his will;
Even the ash will answer to aid the Otherworldly.

Where will the Cry in the way take the wakeful?
To hidden, hoary teachers of high tokens,
To loose their lines into the unlocked lands.

– Patrick Lauser

Third Seven Dailies Collection

Here is the third collection of seven past dailies from the Facebook Page! This includes a couple cinquains and a quote from my small book (which is really a long short story, but almost novella length).

November Night

With faint dry sound,
Like steps of passing ghosts,
The leaves, frost-crisp’d, break from the trees
And fall.

– Adelaide Crapsey


Lying Thankfulness

The doorless walls
Of false content and peace
A soul in truth is not a soul
But lies

– Patrick Lauser


Bless the LORD all his works in all places of his dominion: bless the LORD, O my soul.

Psalm 103:22


“They were weeping for it everywhere, as they had been always. She who stood there screamed and stabbed for torment of hate and loss, and from marshes and cities all desire that had not learned its own futility rose and swelled in hers. The litany of anguish poured out as if it were the sound of the earth itself rushing through space, and comfortless forever the spinning globe swept on, turning upon itself, crying to itself; and space was the echo of its lament, and time was the measure of its sobs.”

– From “The Greater Trumps” by Charles Williams


Feelings are like conclusions: they can be correct or incorrect. Unlike conclusions, they do not always come from you, and so are not a part of you, unless you choose.

 – Patrick Lauser


“As they went further towards the sun the trees became larger, spreading and twisting, turning the sun’s light into a self-strangling mesh of ever sharper shadows and ever fiercer light.”

– Patrick Lauser, from my book, “A Foreshadowed Way

Wah! That was the nice cover of my little novella! Where did it go?


Teach me to do thy will; for thou art my God: thy spirit is good; lead me into the land of uprightness.

Psalm 143:10

Till next week, God be with you all!


Second Seven Dailies Collection

The Second Collection of seven dailies from the Facebook page!

Keep the hand comely
In bloom as the flower, but
Hard in work as wood.

– Patrick Lauser



The “angel” in the word “evangelize”
(ev – angel – ize) is from the same root as the word “angel”.

The word “angel” is from the Greek word for “messenger”, the word “evangelize” comes from the Greek word for “good message”: the gospel.


I posted as a daily a gif from my now finished project, a 3D Twine Adventure called VValkabout.

You can try the adventure right away,

Or read a few words about how to do it, and also get a simple walkthrough if you want:



In Us

In the summer I am light,
In winter I am the snow.
In your heart I am your might,
In my soul are seeds to sow.
In my hand is living thought,
In the ways ill ways to bar.
In times now and past am sought
Where the wise and willing are.

– Patrick Lauser


God is Love, Love is not God.

– Patrick Lauser, after A. W. Tozer


The feet of the child
Or the childlike man, falter
But always are clean.

– Patrick Lauser


One Body

A will
To do the thing
That opens all the mind
Can only open all the heart
As well.

– Patrick Lauser

God be with you all!


Wah! My picture!
