Questioning, Doubting

Questioning, doubting
My ability
To know the answers

So that I can sleep
At night
Live thru the day
All bright.

With daily confirmation
The direction
I’m headed in
Is right.

Glorious Morning Light

The sun rises bringing light
To the darkness
Shrouded in the night.

Exposing goodness
Healing light.

The way is lit for those
Lost in the darkness
Of an unforgiving night.

No one knows
From where it comes
Or where it goes
When we sleep at night.

It just appears
Glorious morning light.

Long Shadows Crease The Grass

Long shadows crease the grass
Modifying bark on a watching tree
As sunlight fights
With the night all day long
Winning only in the morning bright.

Sleep at night
Feel the shadows
Creeping across the grass
Rising up
Holding darkness in it’s grasp.

Your heart is safe
Shadows will see to that.
