“Found in the Forever”, a poem from L.Willows” (Eternity, comforted, God’s Kingdom, Faith)

In near distance
you walk,
a life set free.
Glory, I see
the marks left in our tree.

In yesterday’s branches,
we all climbed so high
There in the mystery
you reached to the sky.

Oh, how I listened
and watched all that grew
Miracles all,
they seemed fastened
to you.

Wait,
can you see
very far from there?
Imagine a world
without time or care.

Found in the Forever
that dances somewhere
There to become,
to announce at God’s Door.

Open, say open-
Hearts of Love pour.

In near distance you walk,
a life set free
Glory, I see
the marks left in our tree.
Yesterday’s branches
still aching heart-breaking.

Soaking in the joy
of season’s time taking.

Yearning,
my heart
does reach like a child
Lifted beseech,
in God’s why reconciled.

1 Peter 1:22 —Since you have in obedience to the truth purified your souls for a sincere love of the brethren, fervently love one another from the heart.

Revelation 21:4 —“and He will wipe away every tear from their eyes; and there will no longer be any death; there will no longer be any mourning, or crying, or pain; the first things have passed away.”

“Running With Wind”, a poem by L.Willows (Holiness of God, Pray- Hope, Kingdom of God)

Longing towards heaven in wondrous beseech
are the prayers of our hearts- they longingly reach.

Held in the palm of God’s sky in deep sweep.
Lifted like archers in tall clouds that leap.

In the midst of it all, we reach not in vain,
for in His beloveds, by His Spirit, God reigns.

Running with Wind, we sing out Holy praise
There, in becoming with The Joy of all days.

Sending, a Kingdom by reach that reigns Love.
for all to re-gather, by His will from above.

Certain in casting His Name in the skies
There we proclaim, with Heart tears-baptized.

Esther 8:17 — Your words were found, and I ate them, and your words became to me a joy and the delight of my heart, for I am called by your name, O Lord, God of hosts.

Isaiah 57:15 —For thus says the One who is high and lifted up, who inhabits eternity, whose name is Holy: “I dwell in the high and holy place, and also with him who is of a contrite and lowly spirit, to revive the spirit of the lowly, and to revive the heart of the contrite.

“The Love in Our Midst”, from L.Willows (See Jesus, trust God, unfolding Season)

Oh Blossom of yesterday, come forward, come near
Let Your fragrance be known, fill the springtime this year
Grant full Aroma, Sweet pouring from You-
Holy Spirit, Lord Jesus – come to us, be our view.

Show us your Glory, the beauty amidst.
Drawback our veils that hide Your Exist.
There are such blossoms that long to unfold
Everywhere budding, Your stories untold.

Here, we are called, There we beseech
All hands are upwards, asking, they reach.
Days turn to the season, times such as this
Lives in alone time; hearts reminisce.

Show us Your Glory, the Love in our midst. 
Drawback our veils that hide Your Exist.
There are such blossoms that long to unfold,
Everywhere budding, Your stories untold.

Keep us beside You; soft held and dear.
Let Your fragrance be known, in the springtime this year.
Awaken the forsaken, bring all back to Thee.
Miracle, budding, blossom coming. We trust, we foresee.
