I'm Looking Over a Three-Leaf Clover

I'm looking over
a three-leaf clover
that Saint Patrick saw before.
One leaf's the Father.
The second's the Son.
Third is the Spirit.
There's three yet there's one.
It takes explaining
'cause faith is waning.
There's absence of mystery.
In Dublin or Dover
St. Paddy's clover
can teach us the Trinity.

St. Pat the preacher
was one grand teacher
to illustrate truth through weeds.
Old Mother Nature
revealed Father God.
Clovers decoded
what many found odd.
In Shamrock City
I pray this ditty
will reclaim an old saint's fame.
He was a master.
A much-loved pastor.
Let's honor St. Patrick's name.

A Poetic Protest of Soul Patches

A call to end one hair-raising trend.

A moustache can be debonair.
A go-tee's kind of nice.
But what some grow below their mouth
is neither fire nor ice.

That clump of hair they boast down there
beneath their lower lip
I guess is spose to make them look
as if they're cool and hip.

But let me say that soul patch thing
is really quite bizarre.
It looks as if they've washed their face
but missed a splotch of tar.

Don't patch your soul. Just let it be.
Some hair's best left unseen
unless (come ol' Saint Paddy's Day)
you dye your soul patch green.

PO BOOKS BY GREG ASIMAKOUPOULOS
Sunday Rhymes & Reasons
Published June 4, 2009

Sunday Rhymes and Reasons is a compilation of inspirational poetry by America's pastor/poet laureate, Greg Asimakoupoulos. In this, his third volume of poetry, Pastor Greg paints word pictures that portray both the struggle and fulfillment that define a life of faith. His repertoire of rhymes celebrate rite-of-passage occasions like birth, baptism, marriage and death as well as the major holidays of the church and culture. It is a volume that illustrates the poet's love of words and of popular culture. The author dips his brush into a paint box of hubris, humor and honesty.

"Gloria and I have been encouraged by word pictures from Greg's pen that have celebrated both our ministry and God's presence in our world."Bill Gaither, Gospel music composer/performer

"Gifted poet Greg Asimakoupoulos is a dear friend of our family. His poetry blesses, comforts, entertains, and provides inspiration for every season of life."Natalie Grant, singer/songwriter/recording artist
