Sweeping Ashes

Sweeping remains

as ashes

from a fire

Your blaze rendered

complete

Leaving only

burnished beauty

to desire

Fallen

descended

from arms of old

No longer necessary

Your story

has been told

Clinging

to wet earth

In mourning tears

of rain

Waiting

for winter winds

When

you will rise

again.

Wendy/2012

We are having rain after many very dry weeks. ย Outside it is fresh, cool, and colorful!

“So it will be with the resurrection of the dead. ย The body that is sown is perishable, it is raised imperishable…” ย 1 Corinthians 15: 42

  1. I just love the photos with the poem and how you see God in it all! So wonderfully expressed! Thank you for helping us look for Him today, all around us, and listen for what He has to say. God bless you!

  2. I love how God’s story of grace for us is written all over creation. I’m glad that He inspires your “translations” into such works of beauty–both in pictures and words. Keep going out and about in the world around you, for I’m sure something else will inspire you, which in turn is a gift to everyone with whom you share!

    1. What kind words… I will treasure them as I go cut my son’s hair and then peel potatoes. Today I gave this son some pastels, as he draws amazing pictures. He asked if he could skip math so he could use them right away. Nice try! Perhaps he will capture nature with his artwork one day?

  3. Very nice. Photos and words. God’s bounty shows us that we are given nature to share his majesty. As I see the trees and flowers unfold – His magnificence places me in awe.
    Thanks for the treasures. Bloom on.

    1. Thank you! I agree it is a nature poem. Perhaps we can even go as far as to say that nature is a poem that the Lord has written for us to read and thereby we can know that He exists…

I enjoy a word in season, so I'd love it if you added an apple to the bowl.
