The Maple Box

The ground prepared,
The entrance bared,
Maple box above.
Scriptures read.
Prayers said.
Maple box within.
Hands apace,
Dirt replaced.
Maple box concealed.
Tears and stories
Share the glory
Of a life well lived.

Noah's Prayer

Two by two, I walk the boards on our deck.
Two by two by two, then turn
And, retrace my steps, reversed, refined.
Wonder.  Will my heart learn?
Miracles, unexpected, shower blessings
Which eyes, alert, can glean, discern,
When open.  Captured by His holy presence, 
I realize grace I've never earned.
Two by two, I am on board your deck.

Sunshine Memories

Daddy, sing that song again,
When I was your sunshine only.
At six-years-old, I listen, rapt,
In love with your guitar, your voice.
I absorb who you are, 
Father, Daddy, precious Abba.
Sing the song again, Daddy!
Through memories, my heart can hear.
