May (poem)

Jul

I am grateful for the sun
It may be hot, but I am warm

I am grateful for the wind
It may be cold, but I can breathe

I am grateful for my friends
They may tease, but I am loved

I am grateful for the day
I may be tired, but I’m alive

Look into my butterfly heart
Look beneath my tight furl’d wings
In the cocoon, that dark, close part
There transcend terrestial things
I’ll wake soon
And leave cocoon

shines the light
open my eyes to brightness

and rise in flight

it’s gone, long gone, by now

Heartbeat (poem)

Jul

There’s a song in my heart
O the mercies I chart
In the soul of my God
In the depths of His love

When anxiety frays
My peace and it sways
My soul from its course
I command, Light, come forth!

For the power of Christ
Is the song of my life
It is pounding in me
The true heartbeat of me

Adoption (poem)

Jul

Heaven would be ours
should we know our powers,
for heaven is within
and to the Lord we’re kin
if we take His name,
let His adoption claim
change the name we hold
into His like and mold.

Feb

softly, we open our mouths and whisper
silence wept beneath the rush
of the silent rushing water
under our bridge — Hush, dear; hush
