Despite the heartache
and anguish of endings
faltering footsteps
and wilderness wanderings
the training ground
of unforgiving terrain,
this soul-defying sea of sand

the Day finds me
Still Standing
and Whole

ever grateful for,
ever undergirded by
this Pathway
Paved with Grace


-e.a.a. "Hindsfeet", Thanksgiving Day 2011

"The LORD God is my strength, and He will make my feet like hinds' feet, and he will make me to walk upon my high places."
-Habakkuk 3:19

"Your eyes saw my substance, being yet unformed.
And in Your book they all were written,
The moments fashioned for me,
When as yet there were none of them."
-Psalm 139:16

My friend, Jen, author of Ripplespeak, wrote to me recently, and offhandedly (or perhaps intentionally) mentioned "the Timing Thing"...

...this sparked what few synapses are still firing in my noggin and sent me down this poetic path.....considering what happens, what can happen, in a moment....

Jen, this one's for you, my dear friend...

Since before Millenia
our moments were formed
Gift boxes given
to be filled
with our chances
our choices
daring dreams
harvested hopes...

...each one a Seed that Becomes...

...Love Given
Love Received
Left turns at Albuquerque,
taken, and not taken...

...Moments filled with
Plenty and Enough,

there for the taking
there for the giving...

Miniscule measures
of our Lives as a whole
the flutter of each
felt far beyond
what we can imagine...
