We Do Eventually Become the River

100_1284

When we are in our seasons of prayer,

it’s not that we are sending our hopes, our dreams

down the stream, as paper boats toppling –

fragile vessels, through the rapids.

No.

We do eventually become the river,

sending hope

and the power of faith, surging,

merging,

with the greatest

of all oceans,

victorious.

As the Wind Gently Moves the Tall Grass

20170628_132132

As the wind gently moves the tall grass

on the side of the mountain,

a few bees

contend for the wildflowers swaying,

and my heart is at rest, 

listening

as the shadow of hawk wings

silently

passes over – stirring, bringing

a sense of adventure.

And in the wind now, I can hear

Him speak.
