Poetry From the Fridge

What resides on the fridge:
Deep gratitude balances possible grace
time touched compassion through gentle faith
present wisdom nourishes peace
transforming truth with courage and energy.

What now resides here on the blog:
Gent’ling into waiting grace
Can seem no easy task
clutching, grasping, gasping even
time stills, time flies, does it really pass?

Brief flashes of inspiration
lightening-bugs to guide the way?
Listening for the pattering feet
of life-giving spring rains.

Too early for even dawn’s first light
too late for the night’s last hunters,
a moment stilled for just this awakening
A deep breath in; let the new day begin.
