Safe Harbor

The wind

Changed directions

In my life

Many times.


But only when the

Nor’easter blew in

Did I let God’s love

Change mine…


My spirit jarred and raw

From bracing against

The cold northeasterly winds

Helpless, alone…


Thereby setting sail for

His safe Inner Harbor

My heart dropping anchor

Peaceful, secure.


No longer tossed about


By the wind’s fickle currents

On life’s ever-shifting sea.
