Mystical Knight of Light… A Collection of Poems by T..M. Kolt

An infinity of inner peace and balance rest upon the integrity of the way of the warrior knight. Through walking in love and wisdom our glorified supernatural body will blossom in faith and rectitude as a child of light. Through the grace of the Holy Spirit, as we walk as one with the spirit of truth, Bushido is the way of the warrior knight. This is my crest and the path I choose to follow. The one and only promise I have given to the Holiest Spirits, our Divine Father.
T.M. Kolt (Tony the Mystical Knight of Light)

As many of you may know our brother Tony, one of our original board members, passed back in December of 2018 after a long battle with cancer. Before he passed he donated his writings to Farmhouse Animal & Nature Sanctuary. His wish was that his poems would be published to help raise funds for our animals (or puppies as he called them). His dream has come true! We are excited to announce his collection of poems is now available with proceeds going to benefit the Farmhouse “puppies”! Order your copy today at Breaking Rules Publishing!
