Blank Heart

Like an unwritten page,
that’s left blank.
So is a life,
lived without thanks.
There’s an empty space,
that fills in part,
but never grows,
into a full heart.

Taking Stalk

Growth in life,
compares to grain,
hidden in time,
passing through rain,
a shoot,
a stalk,
a field of wheat,
pressing forth,
until complete.

Not Pensive

I shall not fear,
or act pensive.
When I know God’s grace,
is quite extensive.
His hand guides and guards,
He cares for me,
My faith in him,
makes doubt flee.

Rushing Waterfall and River

Without Flourish

My soul’s been fed,
My spirit nourished.
Done without signs,
or great flourish.
The change has come,
and put there,
as a result,
of simple prayer.
