Awakened senses


The tiny particles of sound
carries His voice to my ear,
assures me He is to be found
by all who wishes to come near.

The tiniest spark of brilliant light
proves Him present in the dark,
turns my blindness into sight
just as with the miracles of Mark.

I smell the sweetness of the night,
sweet aromas, awakening my senses,
and all that had me scared with fright
crumbles before His eternal defences.

I open my mouth wide and eager
to partake of your honeyed Word -
the world’s wisdom seem meagre
against the sharp edge of your Sword.

Then a soft breeze tousles with my hair
soothing my skin as it runs across
carrying Your gentleness upon the air
affirming You are gain, and all else loss.

Ode to coffee

The milk comes from a giant metal jug and sugar spooned from a matching bowl, what comfort at the bottom of my mug the elixir seem...
