Vade Mecum

The mind is filled with deep pockets,

places to tuck and fold truth

into memory, and the heart knows

every enclosure.  I seek rich words 

— joy, hope, mercy, grace —

and stitch each in, so when need arises,

I can find comfort, bring conviction

into the ready room of thought,

consume it again and again.

These contemplations in psalm,

proverb, parable, promise —

His wisdom expounded

as a living testimony— 

goes with me to all places,

a walk in the park, my daily

commute, as I wake each

morning, and as I follow

moonbeams to slumber.

I feel joy in the warmth of sun,

see hope in spring blooms,

wear mercy as a soothing perfume,

embrace grace as I dream of angels,

those heavenly morning stars,

singing Holy, Holy, Holy,

praise be to God,

and I am well and at peace.
