Seeing

Seeing

 

In quiet reverence I step

into the light,

my church,

my peace

56B30E2D-2FEC-496D-88D4-EF8910584B23

 

My favorite pew

curves gently under

my tired body, its

rhythm sways

me into quiet meditation

as my skin drinks in

evening’s soft light.

Old sun teases-

a playful game of

hide-n-seek.

I peek through

half closed eyelids

as he winks.

The congregation gathers

quietly round me…

 

5EFABFE7-ED45-47E0-9917-D4BA17B7FE10

 

The choir sways to

the melody of the wind

whistling through the trees,

fuschia robes fluttering

against an azure sky….

such greatness,

beauty and wonder

to behold.

I am moved

to be near such majesty,

compelled to find the

tiny miracles that

together make the whole.

Existence not a mere

contradiction of dark

and light, beauty or beast.

She is a symphony of color,

form, movement, sound-

the truth astounds!

It washes over me as a baptism,

salvation waiting at day’s end,

the truth found in a single drop-

heaven’s tears shed for that

which is given in vain,

the suffering and pain,

sins gone with the

cooling rain.

All that we know,

all we can be,

from eternity-

a golden key

is always free

if only…

we truly see.

What finer church I cannot imagine…

Life truly does flow like a river…

 

There were many others in this ‘congregation’, enjoying the beauty of the Earth. The blue canopy above, the path strewn with Winter’s discards, and the feel of coming Spring in the air was spiritual in every way. I can think of no greater moment of worship for me personally. And I thank God for every breath I take.  There is love in all that exists if we only take a moment to see it.

The best thing about Sunday is freedom-

the freedom to think about anything,

nothing, everything and more

but only after Saturday’s errands,

catching up and chores.

 

It takes all of Saturday to unwind,

detox, relax, reset, refresh and

cut the cord to work and worry,

convince myself to slow my steps,

there simply is no need to hurry.

Stepping into nature is my worship,

sharing moments with Creation,

looking to the morning sky

where things with wings,

bright angel beings, thrill me,

fill me as they sing and flit and fly.

Like fire and flame,

his presence came.

Peck, peck, peck,

this tree I’ll wreck

And happy, he

the bluebird be.

We shared a look,

and my soul shook.

I wept before

his honesty.

“You lookin’ at me?”

he quipped and stood his ground,

challenging anyone around.

(i dared not make a sound…)

 

I am renewed, uplifted, amazed!

Grace, beauty, life, joy-

unfolding before me as I gazed.

In all I hear and all I see-

the message clear is harmony.
