Heart's Desire

by Bonnie Derksen  
8/12/2007 / Poetry

It was asked of my heart,
The source of intentions,
"What would your desire for inner life be?"

"To soar like the eagles,
To be anchored through life's storms,
To have heaven's riches dwell fully in me."

"To be like a tree
That is planted by water,
Whose roots go down deep, drawing food from below.
Where the wind
Can blow harshly,
The rain fall down heavy
And yet it still stands for its source it does know."

"Ah, dear heart
That is noble,
And certainly lofty,
Just how do you plan to fulfill such a call?"

"Resting sure in
His shelter,
Hanging tight to
His Garment,
Leaning into the Wind of the Spirit, that's all."

BONNIE DERKSEN has been journaling her way to greater intimacy with the Lord for many years. Living in southern British Columbia, Canada, with her husband and three adult children, she has recently started exploring the world of writing.
