God’s Window

.

Looking through God’s window
At the earth below
Wide-eyed at the beauty
Lost to man’s neglected duty
Sorrow for the morrow
When we’ll have to beg and borrow
Food and drink and air to breathe

Nothing saved ~ we disobeyed
Destroyed our earthly paradise
Right before our very eyes
Care-less, thought-less, heed-less greed
And avarice beset our needs
Is it too late to turn the tide
We have nowhere else to run and hide…

Life Blood

Sunset

Sunset


Life Blood

My beautiful trees
With their glorious leaves
Reach out to the sky ~
Branches bare ~
Like sticks in the air, resting
‘til the first sign of spring
Sends their sap rising
Rushing, gushing upward
Stirring from the depths of their being
While we’re still gibbering
And shivering with cold.

Praise

.

I heard Him call my name
And I joined in while the
Whole world sang his praise
From the east to the west
From the north to the south
In the earth and sky and sea
Glory, glory hallelujah
Glory, glory hallelujah
Blessed be He who rules

.

Open your eyes and see
Open your ears and hear
Open your heart and feel
His love for us is real

Windy Day

.

Swirling, curling, the wind

Blew leaves from cracks

And crevices hidden from

Our eyes – surprise, surprise!

We who thought it cleanly swept

Since the last leaves had left

Tree branches bare, bereft

Of foliage, now find dried leaves,

Sun-fried to a crisp, strewn

Confetti-style across the lawn.

Gravity

.

Gravity is grounded

As solemn as the grave,

Firmly bound, without a sound

Seriously unfounded,

Soaking up the sun-light

My mind took flight

Up, up on the warm air currents,

As high as the birds in the sky,

Higher still to the clouds;

I could see myself sitting on the chair

Dozing in the warm air

But, looking upward into the blue

I fancied I saw too

A tiny dot all alone

Small as a pin

Second-guessing God

.

How can we expect to understand
His celestial brilliance
When we are mere motes of dust
In His shining light.

He sees all things clearly,
We see dimly through misted glass;
He sees all, from the big to the small
And knows when the last leaf will fall.

Only with hindsight
Do we glimpse his plan
And, as for the rest, we must
Just trust.

Life is a pathway to Him and
Step by step we make our way
Onward and upward ‘til we lay
At his feet, replete in His love.

He is a great God, the only true God,
The one God – for me-and-you God –
Whom we will honour and worship
For eternity.

Faith

.

…can move mountains,

Or so they say…

But the faith that God

Wants us to have

Is as pure as spring water,

Fountains, clean and clear

As a child’s view,

Without conditions, restrictions,

And no complications,

But the more we struggle to understand,

The harder we try to read God’s mind,

The further we stray from His way.

End Times

.

Let us raise each other up, Lord,

Show us the sun behind the clouds;

Lift our feet from out the mire, God,

As we aspire to see Your face.

When You come in all Your glory

The world will witness at Your feet

And our hearts will meld together

And our love will be as one.
