There is one

When I am alone

Drowning in sadness

The music of unrequited love

Throbbing through my mind

There is One whose arms fold gently around

When fear overwhelms

In owl calling night

There is One whose wings beat

Away the demons of fright

Allowing me to welcome the dawn

And give voice to the morn

When cruel words

Burn deep in my soul

There is One whose love

reaches out to make me whole

When I am confused

Unsure, seeking, which way, how, why

There is One whose word reaches

Out and gently teaches

When I collapse in despair

Shrieking panic into the silent air

There is One who Comforts

As, with repetitive assurance

He says

Trust, believe, I Am He,

I Am the great I Am

Walk in my ways

And all will be well with your soul

The Morning Wind

The Morning Wind

 

An errant breeze ruffled curtains

A glimpse of indigo sky

The morning star

proudly incandescent

 

There’s a whispering in the cane

Something’s afoot

And the wind is spreading the news

Dry stalks rustling

Leaves twisting like desiccated snakes

 

The mountains glow like a painting

In the burgeoning dawn

The wind is stronger now

No longer playful

Its sudden sorties menace

Then go still

Where is it now

The soughing in the branches

As they quiver and dip

Leaves dancing

The birds are strangely silent

Only crickets ring a monotonous dirge

 

No sun, yet shadows

Firmly etched give definition

To the hills

Lights flicker and grow dim

As leaves all spent

flutter to the awakening ground

Autumn
Autumn
