Let not the passing slip so swiftly,
I want to watch the wind
Sway~dancing with the distant trees
And sky behind
Carrying the waters of almost rain.

Time to stand and stare,
My Grandmother asked for
Time to stand and stare.
Yet time still took her
And stills for me no less.

And as I feel the quickening
Of my child growing within,
And the list of things to do
Surpasses the fortitude of my stamina,
I, too, find myself asking
For time to stand and stare.

The friends of Faith are Patience & Perseverance.
Flanked she walks, hand~in~hand with them both.

Faith is not troubled by time
But sits by it like a man cooling his feet in the river.
Let's sit with him for a while
Until the stream washes the tiredness from our feet
And we are renewed for the journey.

Prayer Candle...

The flame speaks
Dancing between worlds
Never the same way twice
Proclaiming its message
Brighter than loud;
"Your light is your gift.
Above all endeavors
By your light,
In the end,
Shall you be measured."
