Measures Of Night

Christ Jesus is the image of the unseen God
and the first-born of all creation,
for in him were created
all things in heaven and on earth:
everything visible and everything invisible,
Thrones, Dominations, Sovereignties, Powers –
all things were created through him and for him.
                                                     Colossians 1:15

                                                      The tall oaks 
                                                                  are dissolving 
                                                       into the pools
                                                                  of night
                                                                  the fluid dreams 
                                                       of the gold-
                                                                  rattling fields
                                                       splashing flecks 
                                                                  of starlight
                                                       like silver
                                                       over the crescendos
                                                                  of crickets
                                                       beginning their songs
                                                       in the everlasting
                                                                  measures of night
                                                       You compose.


  1. Cynthia, Oh I love that Scripture from Colossians..I share that sometimes when someone says they don't understand how to envision God.

    And the poetry beneath it..what a beautiful illustration of His Word.
    Blessings +

    1. Thanks Caroline! How wonderful you share that scripture to help someone envision God! He is only glimpsed but what a glimpse...God Bless...

  2. Cynthia~ I don't know that I've read that scripture before; it is immensely interesting. Thank you for posting it. Interesting, too, to notice how your prayer-poems have so much music in them -- you are immersed in song! And singing God's praises! All Love and Light to you!

    1. Thanks Amy...Yes, I am hearing a good deal of music lately. It is there all the time if only we listen and hear. There are so many times I do not tune in and how sad to miss this divine song our Lord is singing. All love and light to you too!!
