point of view

I find myself, again
living in the inbetween
winter lingers in this
not yet spring
stepping out the door
I turn to my left
to a cloud darkened sky
and it somehow feels right
this heaviness
as I have felt called
to prayer, for needs known
and unknown
I trust the Holy Spirit
to interpret, groans
beyond my understanding

yet, in turning
to my right, the sky 
fills with boldness
of blue, light
beauty, assertion
of life, hope breathes

I can choose where 
I focus, where 
my eyes will rest
I choose life

I call heaven and earth to witness against you this day, 
that I have set before you life and death, blessing and curse; 
therefore choose life, that you and your descendants may live,
loving the Lord your God, obeying his voice, and cleaving to him; 
for that means life to you and length of days, 
that you may dwell in the land which the Lord swore to your fathers, 
to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob, to give them.
