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.
