Flimsy Love, Carefree Highway

https://sundaywhirl.wordpress.com/2017/05/20/wordle-300/

Like faded paint down middle of highway,

Stilted messagethree flimsy lines

To trace adventures, truck trips we made,

Wild wonder on the run

How could you condense those times?

Season of invincible youth—hope and

Dreams grasped in both hands—hearts

Near-bursting with untamed joy…

We’d sing the shine off the sun;

Pray half-saved prayers that the

Old tires would hold, bald as

Eagles soaring up and far and

No way back…

You left it on your pillow,

Wrinkled notebook page torn:

“We had fun—

 You thought it was love,

But what can I say— ”

Angel At Dead Man’s Curve

Rooted in a patch of Heaven’s dust,

An angel is stationed unseen, between

Dark draped folds of road’s midnight curve.

Foolish youth, heart tattered after first-

Love’s disappointment, drives drunk

On winding single lane beneath

Sky’s spill of unlashed stars.

Sly delusion, Invincibility

Presses pedal, accelerating speed.

Spun-crystal moon shimmers, blinks

As car hurtles off sheer cliff…

The angel snatches driver Home

To God’s arms, instead of fiery chasm.

Broken Wheel Thoughts

https://sundaywhirl.wordpress.com/

Echo of a broken wheel

About to fall completely apart

Sounds like an off-key whistle

Going on and on… Gnaws loose

Threads knotting in my head;

Thoughts quick-unraveling,

For harsh-barbed words ring

True, though they’re hateful lies.

~

Fingertips touch, trace

The crimson cord which

Binds body, soul, mind:

Verses in red, Bible Truth

Prints God’s love promises

On my heart.

Pinned to His Shadow

Prompt words:  Water, Ripple, Walk, Within, Ignite, Shadow, Touch, Pin, Whisper, Trance, Rancid, Miracle  https://sundaywhirl.wordpress.com/2017/06/10/wordle-303/

Within rancid heart untended

God’s whisper is touch which ignites

Miracle of faith, hope ~

As He pins me to His shadow

I step out from trance, follow

Rippled water where He walks ~
