Atomic Skies

There’s a cloud of pink resting on the horizon,
mixing sunset throughout the sky.
Tinged by elegance,
.           the day signals its moving end;
.           its pending goodbye.

Yet, every atomic element;
.      every condensed vapour,
.                 smiles.

With the announcing of this new dusk,
in faith, by  trust, with hope,
comes the announcement of a new dawn.

Where God’s new mercies are met and friendships are forged.
.           Friendships renewed
.                  and life is endorsed.

All foreseen by this saturated sunset,
Layering its light through low rain clouds
Accompanied by the birds in flight.
Entertaining rest as the earth spins the sun towards the West.

Dazzled. Mushrooming clouds,
.              reflect an anchored light,
as it drags over countryside, city and human might;
.       the weighty blindfold;
.       this dark sheet of all consuming night.

There’s a cloud of pink resting on the horizon,
mixing sunset throughout the sky.
Tinged by elegance,
.           the day signals its moving end;
.           its pending goodbye.

Yet, every atomic element;
.         every condensed vapour,
.                    smiles.

With the announcing of this new dusk,
in faith, by trust, with hope,
comes the announcement of a new dawn.

Where God’s new mercies are met and friendships are forged.
.           Friendships renewed
.                  and life is endorsed.

Self doubt and/or limitations inherited from an abusive past do not mean that you are incapable of meeting resources and ability, with ambition.

‘An adventure is only an inconvenience rightly considered’ [i]

“I tried to find religion…”

When I reached out, they just cut and ran. No money, only ashes; no status, only trouble; a no-name from a fatherless family tree.

Nothing they could leach from. Deemed ungifted; nothing they could market from.

So they shut the doors, turned the lights out and pretended not to know.

I tried to find religion…

Instead…God found me.

‘My imperfect prayer,
our unkempt words,
our wandering hearts,
our broken selves,
our arrogant thoughts,  
our noiseless words,
my eyes are toward you,
O God, my Lord; in you I seek refuge; leave us not defenceless
and…
may we pass safely by’
(Psalm 141 paraphrased)
