“His Word” by Mary Bone


His word is like a beacon
that shines in the night.
His word guides us onward,
with the brightness of a light.
His word continually beckons,
to show others the way
and we know he watches over us
at work and at play.

“What’s Not to Believe?” by Linda Imbler


Whats Not to Believe 03-18-2020

In time
Man will find his wings
In time
Woman will exorcise the moon from her womb
In time
The child will smooth the rough edges of the psyche
In the nick of time
A hero will shift the world
Back onto its feet again
Before it
Shatters its bones.


Some Background About This Poem:

What’s Not To Believe is about the passing of time and my own
personal faith that we are being watched over.
