A Wasted Day

A Wasted Day

Theme Week: Prayer – 3

Pray

Breathe.
Inhale the stillness to your bones
Sit down beside the listening stones
Observe the sunset’s melting tones.
Receive the breeze’s soft caress
And put aside the world of stress,
Unearth the things you now suppress.
Lay all your worries out in lanes,
Your fears beside regrets and pains
Like links to all your inner chains.
Look up, and know from wind and space,
Beyond and inside every place,
Your Maker can still find your face,
And He will answer every call.
Regardless of how far you fall,
Your voice will never be too small.
Pray.

Introvert

The extroverted soul knows not
The quiet contemplation
That flows like fresh air through the mind,
Gives rancor ventilation.
It cannot know the calming tilt
Of stillness in the spirit.
The silent song that nature sings,
The tranquil souls can hear it.
We mark the passing of the leaves,
And grandeur of the ocean,
Breathe deep the scent of all the earth,
And bathe in its emotion.
Our raucous moments bring us joy,
And what is life without them?
But those who who heed their peaceful thoughts
Know we are lost without them.
