Brand New

Bali, 2006

is the bookmark
Holding the place
Of all we are
meant to do

I’ve started to sing
What these pages bring
A sound that is brand new.

The butterfly’s
No longer too shy
To show her patterns divine
I give thanks to the breaks
That told me to wait
And held me till I came alive.

The mother who strokes
my hand sets me free
As I mutter the words,
I believe that Thee

enlighten the questions I posed as a child
While I learn about what grace is,
I tread the line between doing just fine
and knowing we all fall on our faces.
