change is sudden


Change is sudden, and it has to be, or else men would never let it happen. Women would fight it too. The suddenness scares us and we start to fight it. The sages among us realize you can’t fight change, you must endure it. The battle-worn realize that change can happen at any moment and we must be ready to roll with the punches.

Whispers of Resurrection

Every Leaf on Every Tree

The world whispers resurrection
but you do not see.
The world whispers resurrection
but you do not believe.
Every leaf on every tree
begs you to admit
that Jesus could arise again
but you will not commit

April 2015
I started writing this last Easter, but I couldn’t get it to go longer. No words seemed to fit. I wanted it to be long and elegant, but I just couldn’t get it to expand.

It is summer in my part of the world. What do you do during summer? What do you see during summer in your part of the world?
