Picasso, Blue Period

Curious views of time
that has passed
leaves common ground
for new moments to last.
How our God supports
all who seek to rest
in His immovable gaze…
With every thought fleeting
and sorrow alighting
on downcast eyes,
pursuing strengthened will
and failing to vanquish time.
Melody is sparse
in ways of man but
ethereal music floats
o’er tops of hills
never climbed that
cast long shadows
onto distant horizon and
see where heaven and earth
meet in one perfect point.
O Jacob, you saw the ladder
of tangency.
God planted the foresight
of Jesus, the Lamb
who saves us and who
personifies love.
Dream no more for
all is bliss.
