Love Like Ivy

~♥~

Love, greatest gift given by Creator God…

It’s seeded in our hearts, and moves

Mysteriously, miraculously, magically

Invisibly via byways of arteries, marrow pure

Silver, neurons sometimes stirred mercurial…

From trust’s labored birth, love loops

Trailing through days, seasons, like ivy vines

Tender, hardy, resilient, fresh, timeless; and

Curling ’round, embraces others, circles rippling

As dew sustains each new budding leaf…

Love begins, passes, with courage to grow

Where there’s rich soil of soul’s generosity, grace.

Backstairs of Time

Climbed backstairs of Time

Quest to solve myst’ries in mind

Light abyss, make shine

Torment’s hidden treasures rimed

Weep-soaked stones broken for rhyme

Steps askew…defined

Rifts…the Savior realigned

Prayers lift…line on line

Courage, commitment assigned

Faith which Past can’t undermine

Untangled by God Divine
