Continuation

Hi,
Welcome. I won’t keep you long. It’s true I love to chat – as those who have read previous posts or follow me on Twitter can attest.

My prose and poetry seem to have grown exponentially longer as my confidence in sharing them has grown too. Whoops! Verbosity is probably my middle name. And it’s just so easy to go on and on..and on..But, fear not, I am going to be briefer today. Sighs of relief all round, do I hear?

I’m simply offering you a pause for thought to catch your breath and appreciate the glory of the natural world around you with its own cycle of continuation and change.

Observing the earth’s life cycles reminds us of the continuation of things, how we too are in seasons that ebb and flow with the tides of time.

Nothing stays the same because  all is in a constant state of flux and change. We also have the reassurance of seeing ourselves alter and grow, stretching into the new as we lean toward the years still ahead.

We are rooted in our present day reality while experiencing alteration and decay. Faith is like a mountain we climb as we traverse dusty pathways and stony ground, and discover a Rock we cling to on the journey.

Jesus is our timeless, eternal Rock, and our Vine providing help and strength for all the days we live as we have our being rooted in Him.

I have provided a Poetic Aperitif below to whet your appetite. More to follow soon.

Your own thoughts and reflections are, as always, very welcome.

‘Continuation’

Drifting, burnt wood-smoke
hazing;
A filigree tenderly 
kissing the boldness of sky –
Dropping into the lap
of a thousand hills
that rise
noble and strong
as the earthiness
that supports them.
Languor of years
stretching timelessly,
as the theme
repeats itself
to our own
pulsating melodies.
