A space from there to here, measured subjectively
From one extended galaxy to another
Between are stars and asteroids and exploding matter
By no means empty but
   busy
      moving
         acting
And void of sound, no words to understand
   silent
      ignorant
         sentient

The mercy of God continually brings surprises —
In them the Joy-Bringer specializes.

So Much Newness! – Walking with God

OK, I'll quit writing in a bit.

So many have gone, but we remain,
A quiet vision holds us fast,
We will not fade from this domain,
We'll leave when we have breathed our last.

As Jesus Shook Foundations – Believing Prayer
O God, who walked this earth and looked
His fellow man eye to eye,
Who touched and healed the sick and lame,
Who took upon yourself our blame:
Make our own words sanctify
Those who surround us — as Jesus shook
Foundations, let our faith transform
Souls who must face the coming storm.

That's all of it.

I missed the eclipse, below th' equator,
And closing doors of the elevator,
The last piece of the chocolate pie,
The timing of my smart reply.

The Humble Son to Lead – Believing Prayer
You, O Lord, created me,
A living soul,
A breathing spirit, full and free,
Complete and whole.

The Cold of Winter – Walking with God
The cold of winter seeps into my bones,
My body aches, my limbs are hard to move,
The heavy air would lull my eyes to sleep;

He attempted jumping from wave to wave
To fill his emptiness
Each jump leaving him emptier still
Until he sank and drowned

A simple quatrain in iambic pentameter—i.e., a short poem.

Today, breaking a long dry spell. #poetry

Three quatrains of tetrameter. Standard stuff.
