Glory

Glory

.

Father raise me up,

Set me down on eagle’s wings

To soar on streams of air

High above the clouds,

Above the mountain peaks,

That I may see your glory

All laid out before me,

Witness to your majesty.

The rising of the sun

Lights the beauty of creation,

Designer of a universe

Too wonderful for words.

Waiting

Post No. 821

Waiting

.

Wrapped in blankets,

Morning air as cold as ice,

The queue not too long today,

Getting to know the price

Of rising late…

.

Here and there a baby grizzles

But seldom cries – snug

As a bug in the layered rug,

Wrapt against its mother’s breast.

Many have another –

A sister or a brother – holding

Tight, safe and sound on the ground.

.

The line shuffles forward,

Breath condensing, compressing,

And warming the air;

Five minutes more,

Another five minutes

Until they open the door…

Smoke

Post No. 811

Smoke

.

Heat shimmers

Air expands

And smoke drifts

Lazily twists and twirls

Gracefully whirls and curls

Ever upwards

Slowly gently dissipating

Dissolving in air

But still there

Smelled but unseen

As in a dream –

Doors slam

Dogs bark

Have you started the braai

They cry
