A Glimpse Of You

I will thank you, Lord, with all my heart;
  I will tell of your wonders.
I will rejoice in you and triumph,
  make music to your name, O Most High.
                                                           Psalm 9

                                                  How beautiful, on the pasture,
                                                      Are the hooves 
                                                          Of the horses

                                                  Trotting up the hill,
                                                          A song of the earth

                                                  Through the manes of morning,
                                                      And the ropes of boundaries
                                                          Where we meet,

                                                  And I reach my hand through 
                                                      The veil of otherness, 
                                                          Touching the glistening,

                                                  As if awakening 
                                                       From a long sleep
                                                          And trying to see

                                                  Where the trails  
                                                       Of dream begin 
                                                          And where they drop off

                                                  This gasp of beauty
                                                       And glimpse of you,


  1. Wow Cynthia, this is so beautiful! Love the picture as well. Thank you for sharing your exquisite poetry with us. Your blog is a precious place to visit because of the great gift you have. Thanks and God bless!

  2. Cindy, your posts do what you have set out to accomplish -- and what psalm 9 prays ---- they speak and tell of God's wonders, they give thanks, they rejoice, they make music. "this gasp of beauty" is startling, beautiful in its own right, and pointed and speaks directly to the glimpses we get of God. You are blessed!
