November Winds ( Cloak of Mercy)

Last of the leaves

cling to life

although the earth is calling

it’s chilled and needs

covers of colour

layered of warmth

a blanket of Autumn

~

Composed with ease

they flutter and dance

to the song 

of November winds

tis like my heart

when lit with love

it sings with grace

~

Winds of November

now bare the tree

branches now exposed 

vulnerable yet steadfast

perch for weary wings

graced by sparrows

celebrate given life 

~

Last of my will

clings to self

I hear the Saviour call

the chill of snare

in need of prayer

layered by faith

a blanket of strength

~

Winds of November

warm my soul

with promised slumber

 life born of spring

no chill extends 

the soul is cloaked

His mercy covers

~

Amos 4:13

For behold, He who forms mountains and creates the wind And declares to man what are His thoughts, He who makes dawn into darkness And treads on the high places of the earth, The LORD God of hosts is His name.

“But blessed is the man who trusts in the LORD,
whose confidence is in him.
He will be like a tree planted by the water
that sends out its roots by the stream.
It does not fear when heat comes;
its leaves are always green.
It has no worries in a year of drought
and never fails to bear fruit.”
Jer 17:7-8 (NIV)

Hearts Desire (Dreams that are to be)

The heart strolls

through Autumn paths

scuffling through fallen leaves

scattered thoughts

drift through the mind

of a love that

holds no exceptions

knowing that every

breath is determined

journeys mapped

planned with purpose

crisp brittle leaves

dissolve with steps

reminds the heart

not to borrow

from tomorrows sorrow

all is required

is what to live for

so simple

is hearts desire

for all dreams

that are to be

calmly rest

within the Master’s hands

Flight (For Katie)

While strolling down a well worn path

Betwixt the tall jack pines,

Dreams and schemes and other things

Within this heart of mine.

 

No one knows this place I go

Tis secret from all but one,

Here is where I love to share

And where my soul doth run.

 

The rays of sun fall through the trees

Glittering dancing on the leaves,

My soul doth smile upon the light

All cares and fears have taken flight!
