“Whispering Winds”, a poem by L.Willows (Holy Spirit, Revival, Holy Joy, Hope)

Whispering Winds

Whispering winds dance
with treetops in clouds lace
Smiling in drifts
that go by without haste.

There in the dawn,
we witness God’s Face
Rising again,
from the night with such grace.

Windowsill’s light
and open with hope.
Therein, Hearts chatter
and sing the mornings elope.

Birds take to the air
in the new days excite.
Gathering with all –
God’s wondrous invite.

This Holy moment,
His Breath in the freeing-
The Joy that invites
all life to Love’s Being.

“Glory-Amen”, a worship poem from L.Willows (Holy Spirit, Hope, A New Creation, our yes)

Glory Amen

God imparts Holy River
so near, from above,
Abounding, resounding-
in Him we pray love.
With Splendor the doors
of Creation do part-
and we breathe, we receive
His Merciful Heart.

There, in Love’s core
we witness a Birth.
Something; a Miracle,
born on God’s Earth
rushes with hope,
called to be seen…
as Grace runs like waters
in her deepest ravines.

Glory – Amen,
all promise from then,
delivers the Hope
to rise once again.
Come Holy River
and speak of His Name.
Holy, called Holy-
God comes to reclaim.

“I Breathe Because”, a worship poem from L.Willows (Revival, Joy, God’s Glory, Holy Yes)

I Breathe Because

I breathe because,
the morning opens before me in splendor
and I am filled with Air
that praises you God Our Father.

Here, the path that I walk upon
bathed in the warmth of the sun rising,
kissed by the breezes of the dawn,
held in the aroma of misted leaves bending,
filled with love rising that calls out Your Name.

The sky opens wide and dips to greet the day.
I cast my heart before you…
Here is the path that I walk upon,
covered with sweet-smelling flowers bearing dew that shines.
Here, in stories filled with mysteries in time,
Here in the midst of tall reaching tree cathedrals
Air comes seeking. Love is teaching.

I breathe because,
the Life you give is new, asking and inviting.
Is there a moment when we step into Air?
Is there a place that we find where to dare?
Here is the path that I walk upon
bathed in the warmth of all that is true
filling each moment with breath – life anew.
This is my Yes Lord; this is my homage to You.
