A Worship Poem

Tina Visscher
On Secrets (July 2020)
Inward Light


Listening in the Silence
  to the spaces between the breaths
    to the spaces between the thoughts
      to the moment the muscles relax
        and the heart slows
Listening the apple blossom dropping
and the flight of pelicans
To the bud opening and
spreading her pink wings
To the inhalation and exhalation
The tremulous delicate thread of god's voice


As I sit in silence
and let the sun's first rays
Reach out and touch me
I am suffused
I experience photosynthesis
My spine unfurls
I spread my wings
Fill my sails
and rise

Tina Visscher worships with Montana Gathering of Friends (NPYM).
