From abstract wingsTo reality
Time experienced in an Earth day
As the sun rises
As the sun sets
The Earth in constant rotation,
The Earth steadily moves about the sun.
The Spirit of the Lord has spoken-
“A day as a thousand years;
A thousand years as a day”.
Mystery, a moment to a human soul can stretch out forever,
Yet days and years can fly away
Like startled doves!
Only a prayerful life can carry a moment
Bring through a cold winter
Revive us in springtime
Set forth a good summer path
And lead into a restful autumn.
Prayer in the Spirit of the Lord is timeless,
Worship of the Name above all as tastes of the “honey of eternity”.
What becomes an illusion,
Flower petals once radiant with color
Wither and quickly fade,
Fall to the common ground
Lost to the eyes and sensitive touch of aroma;
But the Lord forever stands near to His own
Wakes them from the deep sleep
Alerts them to the timeless realm of Living Truth
Eternal Life in the Way of the Holy Spirit,
A man’s good taste in the beginning
And a woman’s rich feast without end.
Peace, Gary Bertnick
