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
________
Funny…
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.
