And In The Beginning, There Was Light


20140516-174020.jpg

The spirit quite naturally reaches towards light
same as seedlings shoot straight for the sun,
desperate to be free of darkness.
There is one goal…..to grow
A move to the light is fitting.

Sheer delight
when the bulb dances with light,
or a flashlight held to the ear,
to find the tiny spider settled inside
will instinctively rush to the light.

We are meant for the same,
to move forward, change, grow
A resplendent reach.

The shift of the sun
reminds us of this each morning.

Today’s hand reaches forth and pulls us into tomorrow,
however resistant we may be.
Silently, we follow
never certain what we will find,
blind leading the blind,
amazingly sublime.

We drink deeply from the light,
it fuels us for another day.
It warms our blood,
wrestles sadness to the ground.

As you propel towards the light,
don’t forget to dance in the moonlight.

Song of the Earth


The scent emerges first,
A pungent smell of earth,
Up from the ground,
Barren of sound.

Sunshine sparks the frenzy.
Every fiber of soil thrusting,
Quaking and shaking,
Nature in the making.

The Master’s symphony
A chaotic cacophony.
Intelligently designed,
Uniquely sublime.

The gift of renewal,
Wrapped tightly with
Eternal ribbons of Promise and Hope.

Never ending resilience,
Accompanied by
Dazzling brilliance.

A song that resounds perfectly
from year to year.

Song of the Earth,
Play on, play on.
