lost

we’ve been waiting

in the meadow

for some anger never fading

to leave behind the echo

of a heart that won’t quit raging

 

we tramped-with ease-

the shadows

circled in with gems of trees

tiny little saplings

covered with sun-swept leaves

 

if heaven sent you

they would know

how lost you used to be

and they would tell you

don’t let go

until you come back to me

Holy Places

I will take my feet

to Holy places

 

the ocean surf

the forest shadows

the hidden meadow

 

for You are in the light

and wind and waves

Yours is the power

that created them

 

You are nearest

in the green and grey

of a rainy sky

against the thick golden-green trees

and You are closest

in a warm embrace

or the wild crashing

of the pacific.

 

You are in the eyes

of people I have loved

and You,

You alone,

Have brought me home.
