A Different Plumbline


Parched by the sun above
No water at her feet to cool her
An inner vortex churns within
Coagulating questions
She is higher
The sun closer
As years grow older
She grows colder
Reaching up
From where sea meets shore
Equal ground…solidity
The even plain calls and pulls
With promises
She left one landscape
For another
Only to lose herself
Once more
From shapeless water
An open view
To opaque clouds
In an ever upward climb
In whatever the Earth delivers
She learns to seek the divine

About Mary (tqhousecat)

I am a wife and a mother of two grown children. I love Jesus and sharing my faith through written words. I currently have a poetry blog and also write on medium.com. My main focus is hope in Christ. I only wish that whoever reads this will be blessed, inspired and occasionally amused.
