blind man




golden rays dip behind the mountain
to rest for the night.
ponderosa pines fade to black silhouettes.
i can almost grasp it.

they look to the sky,
and i too,
until mud seizes my ankles and my eyes cloud over
and pitch black becomes my name.

i unearth that i am blind.

a song is slightly muted in my ears,
i guess the words.
but i stumble and mumble and
get it all wrong.




diamond shades of blue and
they are gleaming against the sky.
i wipe the tears away from my eyes.

i did not think i would be the one to lose the thing i valued most.

i do not know east from west,
nor mount zion from siloam.
brutal sun turning skin to dust,
wastelands have nothing to quench thirst.

staggering steps and no sight,
off i go.
the only solid thing i have is written on my heart.
yhwh.


xx
not the prettiest but i have a way to go.
here's to the fight for agape.
