A Harmony Pastor Feedback: Monday Morning Providing: 8/8


Good morning, good God!


A good friend posted a photograph, Lord

and after one transient look 

my coronary heart slipped and fell into that lily pond, 

into its excellent, peaceable stillness

and its easy mystic magnificence: 

    pale inexperienced pods softly muted

    by magenta’s royal presence…

So it is my coronary heart I come to supply, Lord,

this August Monday morning:

    let me fall into the stillness

    of the peace your presence provides,

    the thriller of your therapeutic grace 

    muting any concern or fury

    stirring in my soul…


Let me slip, fall,  dive and swim

    within the waters of your knowledge,

    the depths of pure serenity,

    your mystical divinity 

        revealed in all creation…


And should you would, Lord, this Monday morning,

pluck a lily from pond of your candy mercy:

    with one blossom open broad my eyes

    to grace my day with magnificence

    to anoint my coronary heart with glory

    to crown me along with your saving peace

    and dress me in a royal gown 

        of deep magenta pleasure…
