Spiritual poems and ponderings

Glory

‘The whole earth is filled with His glory’…

LIKE

that slice of golden sunlight which overtook the purple wedge of cloud
casting a warm glow
across hill tops
and tips
of leaves

OR

the dew drops clutching lacy spider webs
bejewelled strands lavishly draping
straight lined hedgerows

OR

birds
that greet the morning
with a song

BUT

could we be
splinters of your laughter
small fragments of your glory
scattered over the earth?

MAYBE

you threw back your head in delight at what you had created
clapped your hands with joy
and, as a million more stars shot into the heavens like sparks from an anvil
we were filled with your life, your breath

SO

we move to the rhythm of the swaying grass
the pounding waves
the rise and set of sun
for in all things there is heard the echoes of your heartbeat
and we dance, we dance

AND

could the seas be
great pools of your tears?
tears of love so deep we’ll never reach the bottom
this love, it overwhelms us
it draws us
beckons us with its ceaseless lapping upon the shores
stretches off to distant horizons
and we paddle, wade, dive, play, float in it
