“Heart Windows at Dawn”, a Poem from L.Willows (Holy Breath, Spirit of God, Arise)

Heart Windows at Dawn

Dawn breaks though my window here in the morn,
tapestries quake shadows on the cool still yet torn.
A heart wakes in wonder to turquoise lit skies.
Hope leaps, I breathe- coming round in joy’s sigh.

Gentle winds lift curtains into dances of rhyme
into stories that tell, like keepers of time.
Hushed in the mists that rise, that lift…
Paradise inclines towards hearts in God’s drift.

Here the Dawn breaks. In living, life quakes.
Poured into Love’s midst, I rise at daybreak.
Warmth of sun rising, praying life gazing.
Light to day whispers all of life praising.

Ephesians 15:14 —For anything that becomes visible is light. Therefore it says, “Awake, O sleeper, and arise from the dead, and Christ will shine on you.

Isaiah 60.1 —Arise, shine, for your light has come, and the glory of the Lord has risen upon you.”

To be Born only in Flight

When the hours stilled- with yet more to soar,
This heart, it would break, fall into a roar.
Not one demure, nor sweetly cured…
But such with the power of time endured.

Times lapsed around, and all passed by.
Memories were stilled, but the dreams

they will fly.
Not the small ones, gone from sight…
But those that ached to be born only in flight.
