Out of Our Hands

Out of Our Hands

exposed
as a tidal-pool starfish
no mortal danger looms
yet nearly so, it seems

clinging
to blessed faith
inherited, cultivated, central
as an anchor through the gale

waiting
learning while leaning
the ways of the waves
tidal turnings of time, of love

returning
with grace and relief
to the safety (and peril) of
the vast and patient sea

knowing
the tides will turn anew
frailty lives beside strength
the phases come in their time

amen

Yes, the waters run deeply. Sometimes they scare me, but putting words to paper always clears the waves! Thanks for stopping by and for your comment!

Poetry is finer and more philosophical than history; for poetry expresses the universal, and history only the particular.

Aristotle (384 BC-322 BC) Greek philosopher.
