A New Song

November 20, 2013

Time flows in only one direction
With no introduction
Yet we all want to know what will happen
We want to know what’s around the bend

Bending to the will of the world, we collapse
But as we bend, time doesn’t nap
It flows on like a river
It can be good or bad and set you to quiver

Quiver and shake, you are pushed along
You’re dragged on the bottom; you’re under so long
A wave picks you up and cradles you; you’re carried away
The stream takes you to another day

Day breaks, and you awake
You’re alive – is it fake?
You stretch and find out you’re covered
He comes to you like a lover

Lover of your soul, He is attentive to all needs
All you need to do is believe and go where He leads
He helps you up and sets you on your feet
He gives you the strength to take your lit candle to all you meet

Meet all you can; eternity begins
You work with Him to make it happen
Time no longer pulls you along
It gives you a new song


Dear Places

August 14, 2012

We’re home again; it has been a grand time
I can’t find any way to express it, save for this rhyme
I learned how to let things go
I learned how to go with the flow

Flow makes me think of the rivers up there
I pray they’ll always be for all to share
May they always be pristine and clear
May nature always be what we hold dear

Dear places I remember from this summer
To loose these creations of God would be a bummer
We loose more each day
Because of how we work and play

Liquid Forgiveness

May 27, 2010

Round and silver or made of clay

Different sizes,shapes, and ways

We are also bowls, maybe not like what you think

We are all linked

Linked by His love, yet we are the same

Different bowls, yet He knows us by name

What liquid does each have within?

Is it the oil of death or life’s vitamin?

Vitamin sustaining, coming from The River

Warm like coffee, never making you shiver

Coursing through your soul deep

Your sanity it keeps

Keeps you going; it is the Blood

It washes over you in a flood

Liquid of forgiveness abounds

In your bowl it is found
