Morning Star

Like earth

Revolves around

A single star

 

Perhaps

The universe

Also revolves

Around

A single star

One of trillions

The morning star

 

It is the dawning

Of a new day

Good morning

 

Revelations 22:16

“I am the root and offspring of David, and the bright and morning star.”

 

The Vine

He is divine

And he is the vine

And through

The winepress

He turns water

Into wine

 

He saves

The best

Until last

 

He is the vine

The earth his vineyard

And we are the fruit

Of his labor

 

St. John 15:1

“I am the true vine…”

Revelation 14:18

“…Thrust in thy sharp sickle, and gather the clusters of the vine of the earth; for her grapes are fully ripe.”

 

Mother Earth

She lulls us to sleep

We are hypnotized

By her song

That is music to our ears

And the constant swaying

Back and forth

In motion, in time

 

We are taken in

By her magnificence

Her strength, her beauty

We fear her

Who have been

Caught by her wrath

 

She greets us

For all are welcome here

She nourishes us

And she takes us to other lands

Where she will have us be

 

She is the water

And we the salt of her

She is the heavens

and we the stars of her

She is the earth

And we are her children

 

We make one pilgrimage

And that is to this earth

From where we came

To where we all return
