Holy Spirit

I ask for wind and get rain
If I will the seasons it shall always be summer
And fruit will always be on the vine

I do not summon
He who graces me with life and words
To flaunt and goad
I sit in stillness and listen

Not for audible voice
For then you shall think me mad
But Spirit to spirit
He finds me

He’s that good and wise

dversepoets.comTuesday prompt. Speaking about the vatic voice. That muse, or whatever gives you inspiration to write.

I waited a day, and thought about how and who and what. The word muse originated from Greek mythology. The 9 daughters of Zues are known as muses. Well, I understand the context, and use the word quite often, but really have no true muse other than the Holy Spirit. And the process is not at my command or timetable, but quite the opposite.

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.

    I like the communication Spirit to spirit. I also agree that the only true muse is the Holy Spirit.

    Mary I love how you describe the process, in the afterword, but especially in the poem itself. Not easy to articulate but you did it.

  4. I would love to find that voice and I think it’s there in everyone that cares to listen to themselves.
