Chiseled For Grace

I stood in the center of the arboretum
And longed for trees
Sculptured and tapered
Takes far more labor than love

I stood under a full moon
And longed for attention
Soon she hung so alone
I couldn’t touch her

I stood in the hot sun
And longed for sweetness
Cotton candy leaves me
Sticky and sickly

I rested in the shade of the wonderful wisteria
And longed for respite
But couldn’t sleep
Knowing her seeds are poisonous

I stood at the edge of the pool
And longed for refreshment
My reflection stared back
Mingling my instability with hers

I found a genie lamp and left it lying
My heart now a cavern
My longings carved an open space
For Christ to move inside

Linking to Linda Kruschke Paint Chip Poetry.  7 random words. Arboretum, full moon, genie lamp, pool, cotton candy, wonderful wisteria, full moon. The theme is “what the world needs”
