always here

Maybe the soul is the intersection
of the empirical universe
and the whole of personality.

For time is the vessel where
the temporal nature of things bide
and beyond, heaven beckons timeless.

Gaze upon the stars see sad
eyes wilting in their own light –
or look to the hopeless
and find a difference.

Bind us , O Lord, as one soul
to have personality with You
then to look to heaven and know
You are there and always here.

remembering now

jan 28 fog

Artist: Loriann Signori

with time’s steadfast passing
on river’s gentle meander
as melodies gently sway
with mesmerizing candor.

my heart is completing
in continuing peace
more about now than end
each moment’s gentle release.

this soul be bold
knowing the nature of time
in constant reminder
mild countenance sublime.

and lay my head down
upon dreams passing above
remembering now
is from heaven’s love.
