GRACE

POEM

Grace

She enters gently in the crowds of wandering souls,

Sprinkles dewy drops of hopeful things to come.

She draws the path of wisdom with humble understanding and gives them roses of pure love.

O Grace

Pour down your loveliness upon the universe because your Grace is so bountiful.

yours truly…scribe for love

SHARING

A Perfect Fall Day

POEM

Hospitality

You rush to a stranger without flinching

You welcome him into your abode

and serve him warm bread, wine and set him in a cozy corner to rest

Hospitality

Your love the Stranger

Leading always to give a helping hand to the poor.

“I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, a stranger and you welcomed me.”

Matthew 25:35

HANDS OVER HEART

POEM

What is Love?

If love is complicated, it is ruled by selfishness,

If love has chemistry, its foundation is made by decisions,

If love is committed, it is fueled with passion,

but

If love is infatuation, there will be no fidelity

…yours truly…

This is what Kahlil Gibran said about love:

“And think not that you can direct the course of love, for love if it finds you worthy, directs your course.”

…I say, Amen!

ON THE LISTENING TRAIL

POEM

On the Listening Trail

Gone are my former ‘career’ days

As I follow along a golden moon above

As I journey to listen to His voice:

“This is my Son, the Beloved, listen to him.”

*

As my love grows, so does my hearing.

I heard a sweet callingĀ  – “Ma Cherie”

My mother calling me to have a beautiful day.

*

…when I woke up, I figured she was pleased with the story I had just written, soon to be posted in October…
