LIGHT PEERING

Barn Window Peering Through Time by Janine Riley

POEM To God

In The Light of The World

Dawn’s first ray of light gently awakens my senses

Mockingbirds sweetly chirp their chorus

My heart fills up with hopeful offerings

I know my ancestors hear me – their eternal-ness bolsters me

The aroma of cinnamon coffee prompts me

Majestic is the world around me

Crows land on dewy grass pecking for worms; squirrels tizzy about from the tree tops

It’s time to live, pray and love

Yes, Lord – your scribe is ready
