FOLLOW


Follow where He
leads no matter
the path or where
another goes
tend feed lambs,
sheep, for as little
or as much time
exists in life
in death—follow
“This testimony is true.”


John 21

SKY


Woven in the heavens
star lit reminders
shower
whole world
read in the darkness
of the night skies
remember

promises
prophecies
possibilities

dark clouds can only
shroud,
not contain
story written
from the beginning
firmament’s
thread.

FEAR


Why does fear
decide our choices
holding fast we
cling to status
real or imagined
censure or affirmation
from others form
our parameters
we walk within lines
carefully drawn
reject the voice
calling us with love
and lose even more.

TRUTH


“What is truth”
asked once now
often quoted in conversation
repeated again
and again as excuse
as ploy, as strategy

or silently as heart hunger

When do we hear—
really—hear the answer
standing before us
speaking words of hope
offering life.

SEEDS


Seeds sown in glimmer
thoughts—a flash,
a shadow,
a hope.

Take root in heart
form purpose
breathe in truth.

Stamina, courage,
commitment, mark
days unfolding
to completion.

Brings glory.

CHOSEN


Chosen to bear words
to the world
silent and spoken truth
continue work.

Rarely received
with open arms.
Rejected—rebuffed
left wounded.

Called to serve
follow worn path
give comfort
compassion seeds.

BRANCHES


Embers glow

sparks scatter

like fireworks

in the sky unexpected

snaps, quick crackle

of dry branches

devoid of sap

end fruit bearing days.


Bruised branches now

pruned hear—sigh

still abide.


Growth comes again

in time.

KNEELS


Love kneels to wash

away the dirt-

layers clogging heart,

mind, soul.


Refreshed by care

soothed by presence,

held close until restored

again and again without

ceasing.


Beyond end of days;

Love kneels.


John 13
