The Lull

I seek the lull--
To feel the tranquility of the night
The hush of birds in calm respite
The quiet compose of ancient trees
The muted hymn on dulcet breeze
On quiescent ridge of nocturne quest
Find soothing balm on angel’s breath.
Abeyant mind, free of hurt or qualm
Opens to Christ when faith is strong
Fearfully reached to touch a lightning rod
But found instead, the hand of God.

    Here's one I missed, Mikki. It's like an unexpected gift. "The muted hymn on dulcet breeze." A regular hymn of praise the poem seems. You are so gifted. And it is rare to find one of your ability. Please write some more for us. A bear hug. daver

    How lucky I am to find one with no comment from me and shame on me for missing it. Just reading this gives me a feeling of peace and quiet but those last two lines are electrifying. Another beautiful write Michelle.
