Grace

.

I lost myself in the ways of the world,

I stumbled and fell in the mire,

But the Lord saw me fall

And He reached out his hand,

Said, I understand,

It is easy for you to do,

Just keep your eyes on the cross

At the top of the hill

Where the road runs straight and true,

If you falter and fall, you must pick yourself up,

If you stray on the way, call on Me

For I will be there – My love will set you free.

Reaching Out

*Edited

.

Sifting through the sands of time

for footsteps long forgot,

smothered by the wind-blown dust,

covered by earth’s crumbling crust,

memories are stirred to life,

reach out with fingers from the past,

the graveyard yawns, remains exposed,

bygone eras, long-gone aeons,

shadow figures buried in

an avalanche of history,

bacteria, microorganisms set free.

The Wilderness

.

The call of the mountains

Echoing through the air,

The singing of the sea

Softly sighing eternally,

The morning chorus of birdsong,

The bullfrogs’ croak at night,

Thank you Heavenly Father

For all you’ve given me,

My destiny… and my delight.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wilderness

Wilderness or wildland is a natural environment on Earth that has not been significantly modified by civilized human activity. It may also be defined as: “The most intact, undisturbed wild natural areas left on our planet—those last truly wild places that humans do not control and have not developed with roads, pipelines or other industrial infrastructure.”

What is Beauty?

.

Everything can be reduced

To a maths equivalent,

A chemical blueprint,

But beauty is lost along the way.

Give me, if you may,

A formula for splendour,

For magnificence,

A delight to the eye and

Sustenance for the soul.

.

An impossible task, I say,

To encapsulate beauty,

Put it behind bars or

Chain it and hold it captive

For our admiration and approbation,

Because it is a living thing,

From day to day unfurled,

Living on love, shrivelling with hate,

God’s gift to our world.

A Portrait of the Sea

.

Capturing colour with light and shade,

Shining translucent as lemonade,

Swells as high as the heavens above

And valleys as deep as a castle keep,

We squeeze the paint from the toothpaste tube

To brighten her smile on this sunny day,

Trimming blues or turquoise and even green

Thus giving it all a luminous sheen.

Talents

.

We came to earth

born naked, helpless,

only our parents, carers,

to keep us alive,

to help us survive,

but He gave us gifts

as the wise men from the east

brought to the newborn Babe,

talents to aid our journey

as we travel through

this life and onward

to return to our Father.
