Gray darkness chasing sidestepping shadows
Upward gaze to steal a ray
Wetness falling uncontrollably
Glancing downward toward a puddle
Steely cold penetrating the stillness
Tense hands grasping for peace
Glass beads tinkling
Gazing toward the gray heavens
Clammy hands gripping tightly an invisible world
Fuchsia and lavender replacing disappearing stars
Tired eyes releasing their hold
Lightness rising softly
Stumbling into confidence
Smiling eyes filling with hope
Colors shatter night
Incensed booms shower down lights
Freedom still reigns here.
Baby’s shining smile
Delighting strangers’ faces

An aching heart, longing for Love
Swollen tears flood sorrowful eyes
Could not this cup of thirst pass by?
Shattered body of an unwavering Spirit
Giving up the last breath for mankind.
Wounded head, beatless heart
Fallen body, transfigured by hate.
But for a moment all seems lost
Love freely given, now takes on our pain.
Precious Lord, You removed our stains
Now dripping on your beaten brow
So much burden for the King of kings.
You burst forth, victorious over sin.
Only Love stands now, unblemished and pure.
Love enough for the whole world.
Each sin pressed down, smothering. Drenched in hatred, spit, mud.
Alone, naked, forgotten. Abandoned to capture the world.
Eyes piercing straight through the darkness. Seeing only His God-given glory.
No adoration left, only silence. The curtain torn, victory won.
