Rhythm of the Rain
Upon my knees in prayer, bless my words
oh Lord this late October night.
The peaceful calm...hear the rhythm of rain.
I send words a far distance, to a woman
to know of better. A need in heart as
you designed. A helper's soul to share.
Show the way oh Lord...hear the rhythm of
This peaceful calm is meant to share.
So I will not fear or avoid rough water
as I travel this, your river of time.
Stirring the water gently after her.
I send word, I await her response.
I risk causing the ripples, I put the oar
to use, though hidden rocks lay beneath.
To travel a straight route ahead
will take a steady rhythm...
The final destination is in the timing
together, a give and take, gained
in the sharing of the waters ahead.
But if one only wants the peaceful
calm, never risking to ask the other,
that one, suffers in circles...
..just hearing the rhythm of the rain.
MercyOh sweet God how the grassland
ignites in moonlight tonight
I must thank you for creating
her tangled fingers' slow pace
through the handsome rain Her
trochaic kinesthesia to rhythms
in Stravinsky's The Rite of
Spring Is this how you meant
for us to love you Yahweh
Tumbling clumsily down hills
of sheets into perpetually
immutable silence I could love
you like that I think I've been
practicing on this Savanna
for days and months Lost in
her crystal canvas Rolling crests
and troughs And when she touches
me Oh fair Lord I'm dragged into
your city past Gethsemane's
pulsing green and gold
Please hold us together
under this luminous stretch
Oh Father We are live
unclothed Our reflections awash
with the skin of your sun
Keep in Touch!
