Unbalanced #devotion #poetry

 

I stand alone

tilting in the wind

needing no one

balance only sand

*

I stand alone

cold feathers is my plight

I fall like a stone

rejected in my flight

*

no longer alone

warmer with you there

you calm my inner groan

life together gladly bear

2 seagulls

 

 

 

No need to stand off balance and alone.The Bible encourages  companions who stand firm and keep us from being foolish.

“He who walks with wise men will be wise, But the companion of fools will suffer harm.”

~Proverbs 13:20

“A man of too many friends comes to ruin,
But there is a [friend who sticks closer than a brother.”

~Proverbs 18:24

 

“Two are better than one because they have a good return for their labor. For if either of them falls, the one will lift up his companion. But woe to the one who falls when there is not another to lift him up. Furthermore, if two lie down together they keep warm, but how can one be warm alone?”

~Ecclesiastes 4:9-12

A New Path #Newyear #journey #poetry

Awaken to a dawning day

over that hill lambs frolic and play

it does not promise absence of stones

there will be those times

you will feel all alone

while at another widening turn

as you boldly trudge

you honestly learn

to make your way into the light

suffer not of darkness’ fright

for where you go

persist to be

nearer warmth of heart of shackles free

walking stick

 

one foot forward

walking stick my companion

hike into New Year

New Year’s gift of tea–
where did you go
on your journey back to me?

~Issa

“There are far, far better things ahead than any we leave behind.”
C.S. Lewis

“Faithless is he that says farewell when the road darkens.”
J.R.R. Tolkien, The Fellowship of the Ring

God has never promised to solve our problems. He has not promised to answer our questions… He has promised to go with us. 
~Elisabeth Elliot

The path of the righteous is like the morning sun, shining ever brighter till the full light of day.

~Proverbs 4:18
