Lonely As

“I am like an owl in the desert, like a little owl in a far-off wilderness.  I lie awake, lonely as a solitary bird on the roof.” — Psalm 102:6-7

There are those times 

of deep introspection, 

a brooding season 

of the soul, those sojourns 

we must take when life

becomes heavy, our path 

bogged down, our heart 

cleft into an ache 

of brokenness only 

God can restore.  

I’ve had many 

3am reckonings, 

my dreams in patches, 

confusion from all 

that troubles me,

and I call out, awake,

like a solitary bird

in a far-off wilderness, 

but He finds me, 

brings me to rest,

safe again,

in the strength 

of His protective
