Risen with Bright Clouds

We of Underneath

Have risen with bright clouds, Hope

Past is crucified

We walk-out faith, grace-covered

Shimmering with Heaven’s Light

No more soul’s brooding

Every step regret-obsessed

The Cross reminds us

Christ took sin’s pained burden, paid

Price we could never afford

Stillness In Goodbyes


Click link above for more about Brian Vos.

There’s a stillness in

Goodbyes, pause of reflection

Brief or lingering

Before grief or gratitude

Take stage…tears, perhaps embrace

Breaths catch, hearts stutter

Wordless wondering “what’s next”

Tomorrow slip-slides ‘mid Past

Some Options of Heart (3TC)


Prompt words: desire, option, share

Options to share heart…

Bits revealed from distant Past

Desire’s unburnt fire

Embers, ash…discarded dreams

Faith which anchors, holds soul true

Gems offered as gift

Depend on recipient

So, can I trust you?
