Lifting Wonder…~a poem by Linda Willows

…And so beyond I find such a miracle bright,
it lifts all wonder, Oh holy, this sight.
Can it be the same, that single One Light
that burrowed, furrowed; and merged its Might?
How I lasted through such days and long Night,
with heart held tightly, kept dearly from fright.

What beauty of Dawn does come to this Day
The Heavens do whisper all blues that would pray…
I Stood, Stand still and followed all through,
That Call that lasted though deep darkness hue…
All Loves That bright with such witness to Shine,
Step forward, we build to Love’s Lifeline Shrine.

  1. I love this, Linda. Such strength in these words. In order to be safe and happy in this life, a woman needs intelligence, friendship, strength, and (I love this one) poetry. Through these, we gain everything else (we find everything else / become everything else) that is needed. Beautiful. ~ Love, Bobbie

    ~ So lovely Linda — the dawn is always so much brighter after enduring challenge of such days and nights that test us so. I’ve been dealing with the testing lately — so can hold onto this now for inspiration. Thank you with Love ~ R
