Connect

Snowdrops out my window held my gaze
An hour later all its beauty fades
A remnant erased spreads a hint of gray
Leaving just a memory that remains

I dine with friends, a long time in between
We speak of days gone by and people now unseen
The strength of friendship stitched connect the seams
I marvel at the workmanship, despite my worn torn dreams

I bow, my face low to the floor
No words left to say, hearing You again means more
Humility a virtue connects like nothing else before
The peace that fills my being is the proof of its cure

Connections with the beauty of our universe and sod
Though it changes oft and cycles , it keeps me ever awed
And human interaction is vital even with all our flaws
But when all connections falter, waiting is a never-failing God

And somewhere in my future when the final chapter ends
The dots will all connect where I couldn’t make amends
Right now my senses not concise, and my colors fail to blend
All I hold in my hand is His promise He’ll defend

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.

    A thoughtful and evocative poem, Mary. I love your word picture of friendship, and the last stanza speaks for us all, regardless our path to our higher power.
