HIS CARESS

Is it just the breeze

Or the brush of angel’s wings

Which refresh my soul

And bring me such peace?

CALLING ALL POETS!

December 1, 2017

The following quote may be true for some but not for me!   Seeing and hearing and feeling the world as a poet is,for me, a HUGE blessing.  FELLOW POETS, WHAT DO YOU THINK?

 

Quote:

poets. have
the toughest job
in the universe-

of turning silence
into eloquence.

UTTER FOLLY

November 29, 2017

A snippet you say?

UTTER FOLLY say I!

“One of insignificance!”

NEVER was such created

in His kingdom

on either side of the veil!

UNRAVELLED

November 27, 2017

 

 

We begin life finely knit together,

One to another,

No labels,

Many colors,

Plump or delicate,

Uniquely different yet all the same

In likeness to Him.

Sadly,

We mature and our eyes,

Those human orbs,

Deny the truth held in our hearts.

FOUND MY WAY HOME

November 15, 2017

My heartbeat quickened when I heard your voice

Beckoning me to come and see,

And eagerly I stepped out into the night.

The cool air refreshed me

And though I walked hesitantly at first,

I soon hurried on in hopeful anticipation.

We were making progress,

You said.

I, my human sight far weaker

Than your vision for me,

Saw only that home and familiarity

Were no longer in view

And realized the night air had grown cold.

I held my breath,

Saw the darkness and wondered at the hour.

I lost sight of you,

And felt frozen in place

Without a plan,

With legs suddenly as marble,

Stiff and immobile

I wondered what to do,

My eyes tightly shut.

I cried out

And heard your voice,

As though you were standing

Right in front of me

“I’m here” you said, reassuring me.

I opened my eyes and saw you

Standing so close

Your presence warmed me

In body and in soul.

You reached out,

I placed my hand in yours.

“Look!” you said

And I saw more stars than I could count

Studding the night sky.

“I placed each one of them there for you”

You told me.

At that moment, I knew your love

As I had never known it before

And hope swelled within me

Until happy tears fell

And we walked on together.

“It is well” you assured me,

But I already knew.

AGAPE

You speak without words

Yet your message is so clear

And I ride the flame
