“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, God’s Promise, Praying, Hearts for Jesus)

JerimiahBeloved11

Cast Forward by Love

Song of becoming, you break in the eve
Lost for the moments that hasten to see
Where is the daylight, the promise of heart
Cast from the dream of yesterday’s part?

Journey remembered from stories ago
Left in the embers, lived in the fall.
Not carried, the fires- that light forward though
Here in the walk that burrows hearts new.

Listen to the whispers that hope, they call.
Listen to the prayers that lift, they know.
Song of becoming, you are born in the Day,
Carrying by the Life that lights our way.

Journey remembers from stories ago
Left from the embers, lived in the fall.
Come yet tomorrows, far greater than these,
Cast forward by Love, the dream before All.

Jerimiah 29:11 —For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.

Psalm 139:23-24 —Search me, O God, and know my heart!
Try me and know my thoughts!
And see if there be any grievous way in me,
and lead me in the way everlasting!

“Silence Roars”, a poem from L.Willows (Grace, the Power of Christ, See Jesus)

Beloved2Corinthians126
Silence Roars

Softness glistens, silence roars-
these the waves that press heart doors.
Stealth in walking, all towards
the ache that births life forward restored.

Candle held to Light beside,
Hands to hold; to walk astride.
Hearts beheld; Love does abide,
as we join, our worlds collide.

Softness glistens, silence roars-
these, the waves that press heart doors.
All the lives that move toward,
do plea for the love of God’s reward.

Bear one another’s burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ.
Galatians 6:2

Open your mouth for the mute,
for the rights of all who are destitute.
Proverbs 31:8

But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly of my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may rest upon me.
2 Corinthians 12:9
