You Create

There is only emptiness, the great void as if all had been destroyed,
Nothing employed throughout time and space in pace with nothing;
And all is hollow, surrounded by some numinous shell that is hell…
But then you speak and the sharp peak of light appears here
To sear the darkness, and something begins to take shape
That the nothing can escape, and there is suddenly living life
Filling time and space with the chime of the divine sounding
And pounding, pulsating throughout the fresh air so free and fair;
So, too, you speak into those poor souls caught in mere existence
In persistence of lifeless churning in the void of empty moments,
Breathing the power of life where there was only death by the hour,
And then it is the flower of spirit rises from the ashes and blooms;
You create what is great as your own self-given mandate of love
From above that shoves aside the emptiness with its high pride…
You create and satiate the gnawing appetite for truly alive life…
Yes, you create … You create

  1. Beautiful piece. Hello my dear friend. I’ve missed you. I’m glad to hear that you are on the mend. I’m so proud of you for sticking it out and hanging in there. It’s not an easy thing to do. I love you and I’m always here for you. Stay in touch. Let me know how you are doing.

  2. I’m so glad to see you again. I have been praying for you and left you a comment. Sorry that you were hospitalized, yet it might be a better way to get the 24/7 care that you needed. You’ll continue to get better. You will. Will continue to pray for you!

    1. Thank you so very, very much for so consistently and faithfully praying for me! Your loving concern and prayers are deeply appreciated and oh-so needed. Thank you, too, for your positive encouragement. . . By the grace of God I am and will continue to get better! Yes, by His grace . . .

      1. During a serious illness, the optimism and the hope play a big part in the recovery. I verbally expressed to my update messages to friends and family that I had no complaint and I was grateful to be able t literally dragged by feet (couldn’t pick up my feet) to walk in the neighborhood. When you have an ounce of energy, go out and walk for a few minutes. Listen to some great hymns (my friends recorded some for me to listen), just have constant assurance also help. It’s great to hear from you!!!!!

        1. Oh! That’s wonderful to hear, Miriam! One year old … wow! What an exciting time. And you’re publishing your poetry? I think that’s great, and when it’s published I want to buy a copy, of course!

          1. Oh, Jonathan, I’m doing editing right now, did 30/130 pages, after that, I have an editor to do the real editing. We’re a group of retired folks doing fun things together. I’ve been going to this poetry group for four years.
            When it’s published, the Kindle version will have a (I don’t know) 4 day Launch for free download, but I’ll also have paper version. I’ll let you know for sure!
