Uncertain season

Nothing is certain
on the edge
of change
strong winds blow
in swirling frenzy
unable to choose
a fixed direction.

In such chaos
safety seems an illusion
yet there is stillness
in the centre
where the One
to Whom nothing
is uncertain
extends His hand.

I grab hold
breathless
with expectation
surrendered
to His lead.

Fearless.

smiles...what a chaotic life/world we live in, yet he create3s those pockets of peace for us to stand in with him...

yes! we can be fearless. . . how often we refuse to be, though. sweet writing.

It's that grabbing hold of the hand - such a small thing -- a small thing that makes a huge difference. Good one, karin.

I'm on the edge of change with you FF, but not fearless yet. Still trying to grab onto His hand though.

I stand on the edge of change too. Thank you for capturing your heart in word, which resonate so strong in myself.
