Lifting Up


There is a psalm that lingers

above the sensitive ones waiting

to be set free, waiting to be illustrated

a story told – to lift up, to fill in the colors,

revealing the earth, the sky longing

to strengthen, to empower us

hovering with just the right words

making us whole again

dancing, so that we can teach

ourselves who we are.

All we need

is to grasp

the right words,

lifting our hearts.

Peace and blessings to everyone.

“When we love people, we give them hope.”
