It has been awhile since I worked with the online Magnetic Poetry Kit. I became inspired when I read Kat Myrman’s poem today. You might want to check out her blog as she writes a variety of poetry and more. Today I was thinking about waiting for the light.
Waiting for Dawn
Brown bough wet with rain
Wind rustles through the forest
I walk beneath cover of night
Green grass thick and moist
an ancient pathway for my wanderings
I watch for the light to shine
Full on this beautiful world
Quietly listening as bird songs
Breathe fresh sweet harmony
Into our nature sanctuary
Sometimes I have trouble finding the right words for a poem. This afternoon it came together with only a little bit of a challenge. It is a fun exercise. If you have never done it I would highly recommend giving it a try. You might surprise yourself with what you create.
I thought the following scripture fit in well with my poem, as it refers to our waiting for the return of Christ in all his glory. This is our sure hope.
We also have the prophetic word strongly confirmed, and you will do well to pay attention to it, as to a lamp shining in a dark place, until the day dawns and the morning star rises in your hearts. Above all, you know this: No prophecy of Scripture comes from the prophet’s own interpretation, because no prophecy ever came by the will of man; instead, men spoke from God as they were carried along by the Holy Spirit.
