Surviving on Hope

 

1

Surrounded by stone cold hearts

and thorns spreading like lies,

Hanging in there when all else fails

the tenacity of a Rose to rise,

Folding with Grace, curling in warmth

watching as the last bud dies,

The fragile Rose surviving on Hope

reveals YHVH’s design is likewise.

Just Water and Knowledge

blue

 

we are all

just water and knowledge

 

little dust at the beginning

remaining only on the surface

‘til the breeze has it’s way

rippling with laughter

across years of wash

while a moment is filled

with a flowing grace

unrecognized or shunned

by a will diminished at each turn

as desire pulls at us

like roots wrinkled with age

as the seas loom in the distance

forgetting we were made

from beneath the sky

rising slowly after each fall

to cascade with light

while mercy covers our soul

and wisdom wanes into a well
