Waves in Grain

Examining a stump
Of cut down tree
Waves in grain of growth
A lifetime here to see

A drop in still of water
Ripples flow beyond
Fading in the deep
Moving of the pond

Vision of the Spirit
Waves within the way
Flowing in and out
Of my soul this day

One of inner growth
Moving close to You
Drop of sacred love
Flowing light anew

Love in Ten Lines

Jarrod from The Haunted Lullaby challenged his followers to take the Love in Ten Lines Challenge, giving it a try….

Love is the desire
Need of every heart
Question of loves finding
Only our God imparts
God’s Word only Love
Love He freely shares
Soul stores His love
Love of deepest care
Love of over flowing
Love that we share

“The beginning of love is the will to let those we love be perfectly themselves, the resolution not to twist them to fit our own image. If in loving them we do not love what they are, but only their potential likeness to ourselves, then we do not love them: we only love the reflection of ourselves we find in them”
― Thomas Merton, No Man Is an Island

Here are the rules for the challenge:

1) Write about love using only 10 lines.
2) Use “love” in every line.
3) Each line can only be 4 words long.
4) Nominate 10 Or So others who are up for the challenge.
5) Let them know about the challenge.
6) Title the post, Love in Ten Lines
7) Include a quote about love


Heart be of the grateful
For blessings here this day
Grace of overwhelming
Example You portray

Giving of it all
Abundance giving more
Nothing of the self
Gifts that You outpour

One of everlasting
Love and peace and joy
Goal of one in bonding
Extending arms employ

Let generosity
Be one that you instill
Giving recklessly
Be my choice of will
