Gifts at Twilight


Distant rhythms
Drums and strums
Music made
Under the evening shade


The bright half moon
Lulled by the school band’s swoon
United, ignited
Energy livening the arrival of night


I count this brisk walk …

With no talk
But melodies …
Oh the rhapsody …
Reverberating deep
A gift I may keep


His fullness of joy

Yet when we feel our cup
Overflow off the tippy top
We look up
Lo, there she was

Outside her house
I said hello
She beckoned me over
A Halloween tree
Moments of sharing

Me in His perfect place
Receiving her stories with His grace
Reminding her of my name
So we can connect next time …

His joy and mine
For I am entwined
With He who is the vine


I am the vine and you are the branches. If you remain in Me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from Me you can do nothing (John 15:5).


Good evening!
