In the storm that rages all around,
I am, the figure standing tall.
I am, not swept away by squalls.
My feet are firmly planted,
the roots run to the core.
I will not topple,
though some do not see,
they cannot see,
until,
the flash of light,
and for a moment,
they do.

fear begets anger,
uncertainty morphs perception
becoming certain, acting
on rage, blinded-
there is no light,
only grasping hands
clinging to spirits
wounded, afraid-
acting out.

Burdens

Holding these cares close,
raising my hands, cupped, released.
Heaven bound, weightless…

at a time,
it’s all you
can do.

One breath,
after another.
One second,
follows the
other.

Day follows
night, and
then, again.

Worry follows
worry, without
end.

What shall
we say, we
figures from
clay?

Seek wisdom
from above-
given in
love; to
all who
believe, they
will receive.

Those who
doubt, do
without,
waves toss
ships, sans
sails, in
stormy gales-
to and fro,
eventually-
below.

Trust in
Him, your
Father above,
remembering-
He made you-
in love.
