“On Bended Knee”…by Linda Willows


On bended knee I find my own,
the way of simple ‘letting’ known.
Freed are all the burdens kept
out they flew, oh out they leapt..

I bowed my head to let all dim,
The Love, came then, it soared; poured in.
My all curled toward the mercy Bright.
Heart folded round firm in this might.

Wrap me round and hold me tight,
I never want to leave this site.
Oh let the fetters of the day,
find their way without my say.

I need to Love on bended knee;
T’is how I die, I live, I see.
The glory All is farther than,
the Whole and heart of even me.

Life, its source, the beauty of…
comes free, but ‘Let’ from far above,
and when we bend our lives to Love
to live and die, to reach to see….
we arch in deep humility.

Touching portal veils that hold,
embrace of sacred love extolled.

“His Kingdom so Near”, a poem by Linda Willows

Levitation Under the Stars

His Kingdom so Near

How brightly did the night thunder part,
my evening prayer lifted into Love’s start.
The rains fell brightly upon this heart
as all turned to face You Lord-for sacred impart.

Answers my God, how they come in-between
our mortal life’s pause and then rarely seen.

Holy moments brought in a flood of Grace
Known and enthroned by Your Love’s embrace.

When lost to all that comforts here,
We wander through storms grim in appear;
But found in the quaking that shakes our fear,
We wake to God’s Love, His Kingdom so Near.

Holy, such moments brought in flood of such Grace
Known and enthroned by Your Love’s embrace.

“A Holy Pour”, a poem by Linda Willows


When heaven comes to find our hearts,
the Mercy leaps, it parts from faith’s start.
Even in the mortal years
it grips all pain apart from fear.

Nevermore a day to weep,
but Joy to find in each life’s keep.
Hailed in the dawn that finds life’s true reap-
Wonder awakens and stirs us from sleep.

How Love does stun the door apart
as Grace floods into our written chart.
More, comes more, in a Holy Pour
The awe does stir our souls to adore.
