Awakening a Keen Observer

for Katharine and Aaron

we cross the fields
with new sown corn
rising up from rich dark soil
and look across the short green
seeing new life

the sky is blue
and beautiful
promising sun
for us all

Trees canopy the road
and you move into
a new found place
with arches at the gateway
and a whisper heard the length

a place to share your promises
and to realize your first dream
only the beginning of many dreams
to come

couple standing
yet surrounded by love
of all who gather
though the two only see
the other's eyes.
oh how so wonderful
how blessed
how joyful a time
how joyful a time
a time out of time
forever that moment
past and yet present
moving so quickly it all flashes by
moving so slowly it is pressed into the heart.
love present
like a fountain of life
so full of God's love
spilling over into the world
everywhere washing clean
and making new
and with such power and pureness
we all
want to dance.

thanks be to God
thanks be to God

God abide
