Touching

I read your words

And wonder where you are?

Where does such landscape exist;

And realities intrude?

Where does trusses bound support

Over gorge so deep

And that mighty tree out live men in deed?

And in the stillness of

The pre-dawned day I wonder;

Where does your gift to man kind flow like

A torrent down a small stream slow

And rivers fast,

I wonder?

Where is it,

That blood will run like sweat,

And forgiveness like liquid stone?

Then in the dawn of rational thought

You come to me as Kindred Spirit ought.

Where you are I am

An where I am you are,

Un-tethered by time or space.

If we dare to reach out,

We will find each other

Waiting to be found by the other-

As the Kindred Spirits we are,

Touching –

But Oh, So Far Away!

  2. God is waiting for us to recapitulate in that he loved us first. Having been made in his image and likeness, some can see as he sees. This we seem to have in common although we may not comprehend this miraculous relationship.
