How many times have doubts and fears, Grasped our marrow - borne our tears? Yet still, above, through vaults of stars, That truth is known - the Light is ours. Oh let the stirring darkness flee The embers of that spark in me ... A Holy Ghost as whispers, sighs, Those fiery joys within my eyes. And when I'm lost deep in the night, I'll seek my guidance from that Light - One still, small voice whene'er I roam, The Song of Heaven to lead me home. ~ 10th Place ~ in the "Holy Spirit" Poetry Contest, Chantelle Anne Cooke, Judge & Sponsor.

Another stunner G, I never tire of reading you, there is always a freshness to your words, a newness in the diction.
