As Your Plan Unfolds…

I know not where You’re leading me,
I only know it is from here.
This place in which I reside,
Where all seems so unclear.

Your plan, Your will,
I seek with all my heart.
I place my faith in You Lord,
Understanding, I pray, impart.

You’ve never let me down.
You’re always on time.
Sustain me in this trial,
Be with me as I climb.

All I have is this moment,
Help me obey Your leadings.
I trust Your plan is perfect,
Despite my lack if seeing.

Amen

Yet Again…

Her auburn hair’s free flow,
Was held captive and distressed.
As she locked on to the unseen,
Bracing against the unrest…

The unseasonably frigid chill,
An abrupt, assertive breeze,
Stole the tranquil solitude
She had sought with need.

The wind, a threatening howl,
Cold and hollow.
Indistinguishable,
As friend or foe.

Floral surroundings, unaffected,
Nature’s skin was still and balanced.
Yet she was set ablaze,
By the unnatural and savage.

Deadened movements, frail,
Under the spell of time’s suspension.
Questioning in her heart and mind,
Why is this happening… Yet Again?

A Future In Recovery… Writer’s Digest Poem A Day Challenge. Prompt: Future

 

image

I once knew my future.
I could see it in my mind.
Not really one I would have selected,
If I could have chosen from a line.

I once felt hopeless about the future,
I didn’t know why I had to wait.
I wondered why I was here at all,
Why I couldn’t just rush fate.

I once feared the future,
Unsure if I had enough strength.
To make it through the pain,
In the path of final tragedy.

But I realize I was wrong,
That the lenses I peered through were tainted.
By deception and fears I’d adopted,
Regarding a future unpainted.

I no longer claim knowledge of what’s to come.
Predicting, I don’t even try.
I don’t worry about what will be.
One day at a time, on God I rely.

Waiting…

Just around the bend
Mysteries of future steps
Await your courage

Unknowns…

image

Shadows cast are in constant flux,
Light and dark coexist in motion.
The sun’s varying intensities,
Are accompanied by shade’s cool devotion.
From dawn’s arrival to dusk’s departure,
And all ephemeral moments between.
Are the unknowns of one’s existence,
Set faithfully adrift upon life’s journey.

Paths…

Image

We step forward, sure footed

Confidence in tact

Perhaps confidence originates

Because due consideration we lack

 

Wind blowing swiftly through our hair

Leaping from one stone to the next

Eyes closed while in flight

No cautious resistance

 

Springing forward with ease

Only to fall upon the uncertain stones

The very ones in which we trusted

To lead us in the way to things unknown

 

The crash is powerful

The solid blows leave their marks

And for various lengths of time we sit

Questioning our strength to restart

 

Perhaps we should have taken

The road blanketed in pebbles

The gentle sandy path

Or the ground paved with petals

 

Would each one have taken us

To the same destination?

Did we even have a choice

Of which path to step out in

 

At times the terrain is unknown

Until that first step forward

Sensory cues cumbersomely surround

Contributing to a lack of order

 

If we had taken time at journey’s onset

To plan for the days travel

To pack all supplies needed

To enable us in battle

What would we bring

What plans would we make

How would we go about recovering

From likely mistakes

 

How long does the path which lies behind

Remain and allow for our retreat

Does the trail from which we came

Cushion our now bruised feet

 

The path backwards deep into the past is an illusion

A black abyss lined with imaginary stair cases

Steps have the solidarity of a dream

We walk each one in traces
