“Heart Windows at Dawn” 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 in these hours,

Paradise enters heart windows from Divine.

 

Here the Dawn breaks. In living, life quakes.

Poured in God’s midst, I rise love at daybreak.

“Cast Forward by Love”, A Worship Poem from L.Willows (Hope, Prayer, Jesus Christ)

JerimiahBeloved11

Cast Forward by Love

Song of becoming, break in the dawn’s plea
Come, for the moments that hasten to see.
Bring with today, hope’s rise in our hearts
Cast from the promise of Your Love’s impart.

Journey remembered from the long ago now
the embers of tomorrow, teach us, teach us how.
Carry the fire, Your Light forward though
Here in the walk that leads to Your pew.

Listen to the whispers that call out the plea.
Listen to the cries that rise to be free.
Song of becoming, we are formed here to pray,
Carried from The Life that Lights our way.

Journey remembered from long ago now
the embers of tomorrow, teach us how, teach us how.
Come yet tomorrows, far greater than these,
Cast forward by Love, in The Hope that leads all.

“Silence Roars”, a poem from L.Willows (Arise & Shine, the Power of God, Hope)

Silence Roars

Softness glistens, silence roars-
waking, forsaking, life leaping towards 
waves that rise and free heart doors.
Glory, all in God’s love and restore.

Candle held to Light besides,
Hands to hold; to walk astride.
Hearts beheld; Love does abide,
there we step into the sanctified.

Sweet encumber, long embrace
now time comes to the fore in pace-
Witnesses all press near to see
the Glory of The Majesty.

In the Silence, in the soft Near
nested deep for all to hear-
Love abides where worlds collide
Arise and shine in the Lord’s appear.

Softness glistens, silence roars-
waking, forsaking, life leaping towards 
waves that rise and free heart doors.
Glory, all in God’s love and restore.
