whisper

whisper

listen!
secretive, mysterious
approaching, murmuring, speaking
only wind in leaves?
no…

look!
usual, mundane
strolling, wandering, exercising
just a normal walk?
hesitate…

feel!
moist, breezy
misting, breathing, caressing
something here I missed?
yes…

smell!
wet, fresh
rejuvenating, growing, living
may I have it?
perhaps…

taste!
pleasant, enticing
taking, consuming, digesting
absorbing the given missive!
ponder…

“…you have tasted the kindness of the Lord.” 1 Peter 2:3

what is life?

a sequel to {what is death}

life
quiet sometimes
joyful noise at times
invaluable grace-filled gift for all
normal

normal
but not mundane
each moment bursting with
hidden gifts to be discovered
miracle

miracle
a child breathes
his first breath after
nine precious hidden months
of life

of life
developing
the being and the growing
confound the one who tries to fathom
this

this…
what is this?
an unasked-for journey
trudging through time for what?
death

death
ever nearing
until you breathe your last
at two weeks or two-hundred years
the end

the end?
or the beginning?
for True Life only begins
when this first life ends at last
freedom

this is life and death for the Redeemed

what is death?

death
quiet sometimes
much too loud at times
inescapable for all
unsought

unsought?
normally
is death a normal thing?
if yes then why recoil at a
tragedy?

tragedy
a child dies
everyone agrees
that this is not as it should be
in life

in life
as in death
the comings and the goings
fatigue the one who tries to fathom
this

this…
what is this?
an unasked-for journey
trudging though time for what?
life

life
ever growing
until the growth stops short
at two weeks or two-hundred years comes
death

death
the end
or is it the beginning?
what will happen to you when you
die?

the sequel will be published on Monday… {what is life?}
