JUST A CHAIR

February 8, 2016

It was just an old rocking chair

 sitting in my grandmother’s house

when my parents first got married.

It was black,

sat in the corner,

and nobody ever used it.

My mother was dusting there one day

and discovered layers

and layers of wax build up.

Mom cleaned the chair,

then dad noticed

that the seat was falling apart

and rebuilt the chair with a new seat.

They are gone now.

The chair is mine.

I recently added quilts,

pillows, and teddy bears

that I’ve made.

The chair is nothing special

but when I sit in it,

it’s a family reunion!

I rise.

I fall.

I crawl.

All the while there is infinite wonder.

HEAR THE MUSIC?

February 6, 2016

Empty words

can never compare to the symphony

of two hearts

joined in silence.

Conflicting Hearts

“What’s that racket?” you asked,

As I flung open the doors

To the sunroom.

All around me countless birds sang!

Feeling the warmth of an almost spring day,

I heard “too cold!”

Basking in the radiance

Of the morning sun streaming

From a cloudless sky,

I heard you closing the blinds

“too much glare!”

My smile faded a bit

As I knew we were together,

Yet in vastly different placed.

Yes, Lord, walking in the way of your laws, we wait for you; your name and renown are the desire of our hearts. Isaiah 26:7-9
