NOTES

I know not why you chose me
limited
damaged
willful

preoccupied with self

Thank you
Thank you

for turning my life
inside out

Claiming my heart

Leaving me to marvel
at your great love

Taking in gifts
wondrous

Will I ever become
an inert string

Waiting to be plucked

Sounding of me
playing notes of You

TESTAMENT

Wind blasted cedar
clinging on rocky outcrop

A stunted
twisted
record
of straining
for nourishment
adapting

Random dead branches
some with sparse green shoots
Last vestiges squeezing past flesh
lifeless from
neglect
assault

Tortured twists
testify
storms
drought
fire
overcome

Not a beautiful column
adorning a formal garden
admired for its symmetry

Magnificent
runt

Failing to conform
to beauty’s standard

Imperfections
wounds
limitations

revered

gift for God

 

HOME

 

Don’t weep for me

 

I am bliss

Forever

 

Lost to your senses

 

Still here in your soul

 

Watching

Praying for you

 

Till you too return home

 

And freed from physical blather

 

We can

in all innocence

intertwine

 

Loving boundlessly

Endlessly

 

For now

reach inside

 

And again

 

Till you

feel me

 

Curling round your heart
