I write what I feel…



Post No. 872




You have become

A second skin

Closer than a shadow

Nearer than kith or kin

An integral part of my heart

Seldom absent in the present

A constant companion

With degrees of contrast

More so now than in the past

To prise myself loose

I must find a distraction

Requiring my fullest attention

My complete focus

So you gently curl around me

In the quiet of the night

Night, Wind and Son

Post No. 871


Night, Wind and Son


I wake in the night

To the moon and stars

Shining ever so bright

Embellishing the skies


The wind whispers His name

Rustling through the trees

Who are you, I ask

I am He, it replies


The Son, heaven’s crown

Blesses all He shines upon

Bringing life-giving rain

Relief from heat and pain

Why Fear

Post No. 869


Why Fear


She is my voice

Hers are my tears

Crying in the wilderness

Silent in my fears


Afraid to open the gates

Lest I should drown

Showing my nakedness

My helplessness I own


I am not ashamed

To declare you my God

My maker my creator

So tell me why

Oh why do I hide

My feelings deep inside

Golden Tree

Golden Tree

Golden Tree

Post No. 867.


Golden Tree


With the change of season

Some trees are bare(ly) there

Others still fully clothed

Some covered in fruit blossom

But this one caught my eye

Sunlight filters through golden leaves

Tree of knowledge from the garden

or fake gold for a fake world

Capturing God

Post No. 866


Capturing God


Trying to capture God

In all the witnesses to His existence

From the smallest mites

To the gigantic whales

In all life that lives and breathes

In every thing that He conceives

The beauty of earth

The splendour of space

His magnificence defies

Our greatest dreams

And all our imaginings
