Timeless

Here is a part of my heart. By that, I mean, this is a poem I wrote today that I will share with you here even though right now, it’s just a  scribble, a first draft that I might never have gone back to edit, and instead might be more inclined to keep in my journal and never let anyone see. That would be what happened except that I met a new friend today, a lady who sat beside me in Starbucks and shared her poem with me and so inspired me to also put these words into the world, to offer them to the ether, and let the wind carry my thoughts wherever it will.

My poem is called Timeless, or at least thats the title written in my journal, but really, poetry gets its title from you, its reader, the one who absorbs the words and let them move you – is it Timeless or Time, or Untethered, or Change? It could be anything you let it.

 

Timeless,

Thoughts like rain

Same rain felt by Noah’s children

Because after the first rain,

When it fell again,

This time they were outside,

They tasted the first drops with their tongue

Let the surplus slide

Down their face and smiled.

 

Timeless

Dreams like sun

Same sun Hezekiah prayed and it was turned back

Because after that long day

When morning broke again

He looked up and saw a different sky

Felt a new burn on overexposed skin

Let his sweat bead and dry

Turn salt on his face, and sighed

Content that if he died right now

He would have made his place in that sweet by and by.

 

Timeless like love

Same love felt by God when He formed and fashioned man

Because man was the manifestation of that love

And woman, she came when man felt the yearning of love

Their children came as the earning of love

Sin, in its time, became the burning of love

The unquenched desire

That inhabits your skin with dancing fire

Yet that same love redeems you, lifts you higher

To the place where rain doesn’t fall

Past where the sun becomes a blazing ball

Whose energy disappears into the deep

Where only love exists to keep you.

 

Timeless

Thoughts like rain

Dreams like sun

Love like love

That once begun

Never ends again.

  1. I am literally blown away! The tight rhythm, spot on repetition, and biblical allusions—all of these imbue this poem with such gravitas! Bravo!
