Daniel

Daniel

A sure death they had plotted,
serpents of men, those beasts,
Jaws and stomachs waiting,
such a tasty little feast.
But the Lord had His eye on him,
no harm would He concede,
Now curled up in the lion’s mane,
Daniel, fast asleep.
~ D.F.

*************
“Daniel was found to be unharmed because he trusted in his God.”
~ Daniel 6:24

Cutter

Cutter

How lonely it must be, emotions wearing thin,
All that you control, line of red upon the skin.
Yet as blood wells, leave your worries at His feet,
Like you, His tender body, many the cuts so deep.
~ D.F.

Afterglow

Afterglow

His childlike devotion, so often untold,
Hands full of labour, the graces flowed.
This day, he rests, body still and cold,
But embers still burn, Love’s afterglow.
~ D.F.
