1/25/2013 / Poetry
in vain across snow-scarred
hills---through village parkland
scattered far and wide
and the bars offered no hope
as I continued my quest.
I sought Him behind the façade
of men and their scheming
ways---card games to amuse
to no avail---then drugs
and booze added to my pain.
Where is this Jesus I asked?
And a voice began to whisper
warming my whole being
I am here it said---surrounding
you at all times
everywhere and anywhere.

My wife, Esther and I really enjoy writing. It is an excellent salve, in addition to prayers, a great wife and family during my continuing recovery from a stroke/aneurysm. You can contact us at: firstname.lastname@example.org re comments on our work. We live in Truro, Nova Scotia, Canada. Pray for others.
