Again we have a wonderful poem, from our dear friend at the ministry, Colleen, who write under the name Lorraine Szabo. Colleen is a tremendous inspiration to this ministry, as the ministry and OfJ have had several very difficult and sad events to deal with lately. But as Christians we all should be inspiration in all we do, for we serve a wonderful Lord and Friend. Here is another of Colleens Poems: Light Leaks—Night Locks
Shut the door and leak out the light,
sunset is swallow, bleached, such from sight.
Let the night fold, close tight the hole
for one such as me in flight.
Silence caresses, tucks up time,
tickling and taking each hours toll with chime.
Silvered shadows, pale, fade to blend
as lamplight spindle trees
splash, sliced in emerald sonnets like a doll.
Rivulets of pain bleed, reflect and roll
while slivers of rain
sigh and soak in the scent of musk,
like the heart of me spilling the husk
of life’s thread, my loom of fate
within this spirit of mine, too late
that weaves and winds,
twists in a and knot like twine
to cast patterns and colors
Of intertwined destiny that spills like wine
saturated as if in rainbow brine.
Until saffron dawn rises again to shine
to reveal a new day’s journey of signs
In a symmetry of azure sky above.
Far-flung water, for swooping gull and wood dove,
for cockatoos and pelicans to swish
for dolphins, crab and darting fish,
shafted, spilntered and spinning in
sun spraying mist.
such a landscape will i miss,
no more will it exist
but in memory as the light leaks
and leaves this home, my spirit forever seeks.
