Quilt

Quilt

Delicately stitching, the pattern soon unfolds,
A tapestry He weaves, life’s adventures told.
Threads coaxing into place, the disconnected hold,
Soul in comfort keeping, warmth amidst the cold.
~ D.F.

Escape

Escape

With spirit gently yielding, from the cross, His final sigh,
So men in lifeless dwellings, should scale their walls so high.
Trapped in silos, cold and dark, worthy souls long failed to rise,
But now the hold of sin escaping! From death, He has wrought new life.
~ D.F.

Lovers

Lover

Her laughter lightly ringing, innocence and youth,
Fresh as spring day rising, delightful drops of dew.
In the garden dreaming, as the cleansing rains renew,
His voice, the wind now carrying, her cares seem ever few.
~ D.F.

“My lover belongs to me and I to him…”
~ Song of Songs, 2:6

Hosea

Hosea

From the sun’s first rising, His devotion plain to all,
Her days of fretful wandering, ever faithful was His call.
Then love, its gentle bending, trees so mightily tall,
Their dance at last resuming, frozen since that Fall.
~ D.F.

Veil

Veil

Estranged from love, shrouded by veil,
There she was hidden, weakened, frail.
Wages of sin, yet now its chains fail,
Softest kiss draws pink from the pale.
~ D.F.

*************
“And behold, the veil of the sanctuary was torn in two from top to bottom.”
~ Matthew 27:51
