A long overdue poetry party
Christine at Abbey of the Arts has issued another Poetry Party invite...and this time I'm in. The overdueness is all mine. I promised myself to do this as a sort of discipline, and then I've let too much get in the way. So here I am!
The sentinel a vigil keeps
watching while the dark world sleeps
blind to Love and Glory.
He each night writes the ancient story
and scribes for each day something new
until the damp of morning dew
stills his pen
He waits and waits to see
what God does next in you, and me.
