Loving Home

There are houses

Of varying shapes and sizes

Cement, wood, stone,

Metal,  bricks,

Or even straw…

 

Made with a carpenter’s dexterous skill,

And an architect’s most intelligent design.

 Animals and insects also build amazing 

Structures in which to live;

Really, a testament of God’s likha.

 

While houses can be made with love,

Given all the intelligence and skill

One can muster,

Love, only love, can make a house, a home…

a favorite space for resting weary heads.

 

-Gilda Patricia

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

Willy-nilly

By the wind’s fickle currents

On life’s ever-shifting sea.

The Perfect Dream of You

In my dreams,

Lie your sweet perfection…

The truest love song ever written,

Brightest candle ever lit,

Fullest moon in darkest night.

 

Pretending to wish you by my side…

Just a game,

For my heart already knows,

Perfect Reality,

Could not survive harsh daylight.

 

Still, I find, sweet dreams of you,

Keep me going, striving, reaching, growing,

Beyond surviving…

 

For these untainted reveries of you,

Lay nestled inside… a perfect world of bliss;

My Future Heaven.

Transformation

All the shards,

Of my broken heart,

Scattered,

Like road-kill,

On the dusty highway of life,

After crashing head long,

Into your cold-blooded, 

Metallic heart.

 

Transformed in the Light,

Of grace and forgiveness…

My broken pieces,

Have now become,

As a beach full of shells,

Happily resting in the warmth of God’s love;

Counted as One with,

 His most Precious Collection.

Book Lover-Kaulayaw

Beautifully packaged,

In bright-colored jackets,

Waiting for me,

Waiting for me.

 

Good books,

Never pressure,

Or push me,

To open their pages.

 

And when I’m ready,

I read as fast and as much,

As I choose!

Gracious books.

 

So selflessly giving,

A story,

At my fingertips,

Awaiting my perusal.

 

Revealing richness, depth,

Mystery, secrets, 

Beauty, love,

And wisdom untold.

 

Nothing withheld,

As my interest,

And curiosity peak,

Becoming fully engaged;

 

Unfazed by daily distractions,

Satiated and satisfied,

Buried deep,

Within the pages.

 

-Gilda Patricia
