Blurred


Today was blurred
fuzzy around edges
usually sharp
feathers instead of
steel
and here am I
rejoicing
in moments soft,
muted, sacred
knowing not only His
hands
but His heart
hold me
as I choose to linger
long in the stillness
of His shadow
where peace
descends.

"to linger long in the stillness" -- yes, indeed. To linger long. Good poem.

You have captured the joys of unity and being in the moment - the poem is so soft and delicate.

lovely that you gently inject this with the spiritual, nothing overzealous or preachy about it. I appreciate that subtlety. Not enough really meaningful poetry around (except love poetry but geez like we need more of that). Love this imagery -
