God walks with bare feet

Leaves His sandals on my step

Knowing He’ll make dew

Play date ends early

Umbrellas shunning Heaven

For crying out loud

Inspired by my new friend DarcNyt, whose generous comments I wake up to daily. They help start my day with a smile.    Thank you, Darc 🙂

 

Life always brighter

After The Dark Night passes

Day out and Day in

Moon smiles sideways

Wide grin with coffee stained teeth

Winter nights are long

Twilight

 

Twilight taught her children

how it’s natural to diverge

and to stray from Light–for darkness comes

each day, at Heaven’s urge

And although she seems foreboding,

shifting paths ahead unclear,

It is in this slow defeat of light

She says “Rebirth is near!”

 

She showed how the bloom would wither,

petals drop and blow away,

if not for the Night–who grants reprieve

and tends to wounds of Day;

and how withered blooms surrender

when their use outlives their form–

but she vowed to us that Day would bring

A stronger Promise born.

 

Then she bowed her head to Venus

and she slipped away, unseen–

knowing she had served us well

at places in-between.

Please-don’t go-you’re safe-I promise

and I have nowhere to be

All I want is just to sit with you

beneath this willow tree

 

Whispering leaves will be our choir

and our breath will be our prayer

Dappled Sun will lend Her halo

glistening softly on your hair

 

We can still obey tradition

if it helps to ease your mind

It’s just five steps to Baptism

And six steps to the Divine

 

Come, let’s find a kinder Eden

where Past Lives won’t force our leave

For the gates of Heaven never close

beneath this willow tree
