Surprised By You

Guide us so to use the good things of this world,
  that even now we may hold fast to what endures for ever.
                                                                        Universalis Prayer

It was in the moment’s bright space
Your glory 
Flecked with
In the dryness 
Of my hour
And the duties of the day,

While on the porch, peeling back
Husks from the lush 
Orbs of corn,
And what the summer days 
Tucked in  
Designs of rows
And buttery light,  
Long hidden,

Now sparkling
Their kinship 
With the sun and rain
And the dark descent of roots
Below the seasons
Bearing strands 
Of silk
And gold speckled
With pearls
I now hold
On the palms 
Of these old 
More than beauty's brief yeild,
 The enduring
Of joy
  From You. 


  1. I absolutely love what you're seeing these days, Cynthia. What a blessing it is to see more what God sees, to see deeper with God's eyes than our own. All Joy to you, my dear!

  2. This harkens so much toward harvest time, though it is not yet here...what beauty, what simplicity. Thank you for this post!

  3. Thanks Amy! His gifts are so abundant and all around ...Enjoy the harvest...God Bless
