When I was a toddler, I remember asking my mum, “Why is God a man” … and now 65 years later, I am left with the same question !! …
Today’s poem is a mixture of 4 different stanzas, that somehow they seemed to flow together, and I would like to thank, V.J Knutson, Colleen, and Susi, for inspiring these snippets that I wrote on their posts. (3 women blogger friends !!) … and please readers do not try to read too much into my poem, the piece is a mixture of different thoughts, on different days … but maybe my thoughts were all leading to the same stairway !!
Push forward across the sand
Towards that promised land
Be guided by Her red right hand … V.J.
Some sad moments, you will delve deep
Other times you will feel the breeze’s cool sweep
Of mother nature sending you her heart beat … Colleen
Then indeed you are there
And Her eternal stairs … Colleen
Where baby eyes open and cry
Life’s eyes cry and say goodbye
And old eyes run dry and die … Susi
