Faith

Spread the love

goddess_w_torch_IMG_3378full21

Our faith’s a pier-less bridge round
corner of blizzard
and dust, so long
as men can see and cipher the song

of trust. Let hope, desire and whim
watch the morning
rise we mount a
path ahead, oh with thoughtful pace

revise.

For fear the stars would melt we dried
our vale of tears, a
sound of brimstone
burning whisper into our ears.
It bears
the soul as bold. to duel the storm and
chase, Lord
what woes we must endure
in search of form and grace.

Amid incense and spiritual hymns;
The dawn of hope and faith begins.

  2. The last two lines are my favorite bit. I love beginnings–they are always filled with promise, even the ones that also mark the end of something terrible. I can smell the incense, and feel the hope trickling in. ♥

    This is so good. I love this section:

    ” whim watch the morning
    rise; we mount the path ahead with thoughtful pace
    revise.

    For fear the stars would melt”

    How clever, the way you hid “re-vice” inside of “revise” by letting it hang on its own line.
