Confident Voices

Somewhere stands a vacant, empty building . . .

 

Sometimes wondering

Seeking out hidden voices

Still trying to hear

Holding out, few choices

 

Listening closely

Imagination unlocks

Now discovering

Shifting life’s gearbox

 

Another room calls

Peeling paint covers each thought

Wisdom speaking out

Taking another shot

 

Draining time’s hourglass

Final hours, dreadful waiting

Still so much to share

Speaking words, dictating

 

Eager wrecking ball

Setting to flatten each room

Confident voices

Transferring to courtroom

Going, Going, Gone!

Morning’s frost whispers

Autumn’s voice fading away—

Winter’s shadow calls

Hang On!

Winter’s coldest words

Warmest phrases lifting up—

Sunrise welcomed back

Searching

Voices

Too many

Communing with Scripture

Listening to just one

Arriving

Darkness

Surrounding thee

Sin’s guilt heckling

Now hearing mercy’s voice

Blessing

Alone

Competing thoughts

Who truly cares?

One voice offers grace

God

Monday Memories: A Whisper

Hearing a far, distant whisper

 

Delicately spoken

Soothing words

 

Speaking in a special voice

 

Familiar sounding

Decades ago

 

Whispering over and over again

 

Barely audible

Peacefully said

 

Taking one on a journey

 

Distant city

Tranquil feeling

 

Listening for the whisper again

 

Silence now

Returning when?
