I Stay

The road today did not diverge
To yellow wood or branches bare.
Caught, sought, me in the middle; urge
To run, to shun the path shown there,
Right in front of me.  Need to make
Via Delarosa, The Way
My only need, only answer.
In unfailing comfort, I stay.

Born for Us

Christmas lights shining
Since Thanksgiving Day
On tree faithful, true,
Draped; loving array
Of Christmas Present,
Christmas Past. Renews 
In heart, light's promise:
Jesus!  Born for us.

They Lie in Wait

They lie in wait
With patience strong
Enough to break
Through defenses
Vowed, rigorous.
Still, they persist.
Will not give up.
Have learned the ropes.
Agenda met,
Nothing stops them.
And we fall, fall,
Further.  Abyss
Looms.  Yawning beast
Consuming all,
And saving none . . .

When I Hide

When I hide,
You seek.
When I'm lost,
You find.
When I run,
You're there, 
Keeping pace
With all.
You race, sure
Of me.
Of life.
