sleep in the mist

mist is heavy
thick in sun's first light
mothers bend low
tending to fields
keeping babies close
secure enough to rest deep

can we find such peace
in His presence
even as we labor?

You will guard him and keep him in perfect and constant peace 
whose mind [both its inclination and its character] is stayed on You, 
because he commits himself to You, leans on You, 
and hopes confidently in You.

ever awed

clouds shape shifting
as rain teases
while I watch
again lost
