Observance

Observance

Where is the wind in the willows,
Over the pond of still water?

Where is the rich Autumn scent of leaves,
Fallen, from New England Hardwoods?

Where is the well used pick up truck,
Filled in the back,
With oak, cherry and ash split up?

Where is the movement of chess pieces
On an ivory board by the fireside,

When its chill and raining,
Damp outside?

Where is the love hoped for once?
Is it gone now,  turned heel and walked on?

Nature’s light breeds eternal,
But a choice so human wanes long.

In the morning by the window
The birds sing their song.

And this brings hope
In the demonstration of light living close by.

Time comes and goes
The days of the week flow,

The temperature begins to cool
Nature always a returning jewel.

A stir from darkness til dawn
A train blowing its horn

By a conductor working,
As it chugs on.

Leaves fall and curl
Lay silent under winter’s cold revelation.

A cloud image in the sky, a culmination before the eye, a symbol like PI, a letter, a designator, opposite from the beginning. Z is for zebra. Z is for zephr, Z is for Zeus… hmm….sleep?  anymore Zzzzzzz’s?  Hmmm the 26th letter in the alphabet, 26, which in numerology combines (reduces) to the single digit number  8, the symbol for infinity,  hmm..Z  denoting the third axis in a 3 dimensional system of coordinates…Z the number of protons in the nucleus of an atom, which determines the chemical properties of an element and its place in the periodic table (from my Mac’s dictionary! 🙂  )

But His sun returns the burst of Spring
Water cascading new growth into regeneration.

People remain sleeping
And hide in their “I” pretense,

Like coyote’s howl, heard yet unseen
Somewhere off in the distance.

Dark satiation deludes itself into believing
That it can come from the past

Park itself presently
And continue reaping its seeds of thieving.

Yet the face can’t see its own demise
Closed are its eyes

An early dawn over the Lincoln Hills, Missoula Montana, August 2012.  Do you see the dove in the picture?

To the strength of God’s light
His dove displacing adeptness tendrils

Reveals the dark deeds of human flight
And deliverance ticks on with time.

Job 28:  20-28  Job Tells Of Earth’s Treasures

20  “Where then does wisdom come from?
And where is the place of understanding?

21  “Thus it is hidden from the eyes of all living
And concealed from the birds of the sky.

22  “Abaddon and Death say,
“With our ears we have heard a report of it.”

23  “God understands its way,
And He knows it splace.

24  “For He looks to the ends of the earth
And sees everything under the heavens.

25  “When He imparted weight to the wind
And meted out the waters by measure,

26  “When He set a limit for the rain
And a course for the thunderbolt,

27  Then He saw it and declared it;
He established it and also searched it out.

28  “And to man He said,  ‘Behold, the fear of the LORD, that is wisdom;
And to depart from evil is understanding.'”

Glory to YOU, LORD
Amen.

One Response to Observance

  1. “He had never thought of himself as much of a praying man, but as he sat in the car in the growing darkness and the minutes passed, he knew what it was to pray. It was to will goodness out of evil, hope out of despair, life out of death. It was to will dreams into existence and spectres into reality. It was to will an end to anguish and a beginning to joy.”
