WINGSONG…THE POEM

Filed under: Morning Star — Bruce @ 2:14 pm

WINGSONG

Soundless like air moves my way,
opportunity covers me as water the sea,
and for this time, scarcely a day
is life, as living here I flee.
My soul invisible, silent but real,
moves, but not effortlessly
as I see on modern wings of steel,
but peacefully, through striving, towards holy Thee.
Prayer, ministry, fasting, sacraments amidst joy,
give it peaceful power, and speed to lift,
Earth journey’s bounds to destroy,
moving life through the ancient rift.
Hoping in mind and deed for Jesus,
and for Him does glide and soar,
songs on air, wings sing sweetly for us,
of things that matter more.
Flightless rear fledges, only guiding things,
thought in error strong when empty of power,
the gift of flight comes from Godly wings
beating tirelessly; thru them spirits would flower.
