Leaking Pen

(Wellington, New Zealand)

I look to you

I look to you
As nature declares
Its love for me
Its shady green canopy
Sheltering me with caring hands
From the heat of midday
And next by, a gentle creek
Murmuring notes of reconciliation
The voice of God's love
In the depth of my heart.
I look to you
In my foreground
A black butterfly
Fluttering its wings of joy
In rapture with our shared surroundings
Feeling the pulse of life
In every beat of our breath
I look to you
For your love is evident
In the memory of my beloved
As I see her silhouette
Greeting me from every limb
Swaying with the wind
Gentle waltz from every tree
I look to you
As I near my end
My path disappears under my feet
And out of my dream
I shout with gratitude
For I have awakened
Into the heart of love
Touched the spirit of God
My Journey complete

In memory of Whitney

Poem of the Day

poet Robert William Service

Just Home and Love! the words are small
Four little letters unto each;
And yet you will not find in all
The wide and gracious range of speech
Two more so tenderly complete:
