Poems. Prayers & Promises

Wednesday, 26 June 2013


There were footprints in the clouds
That split through a sapphire heaven
That lit the firmament in rising flames
And consumed where darkness triumphed,
Where time and dust kissed in vain
And held each other in respected awe.

There are lightning bolts in the sky
From ancient thrones where justice reigned,
From ages past in colored adoration
And lined the road to redemption.
The everlasting love song echoed
Where crystal rivers split mountains
And praise rang through the universe
Where footsteps mark heavens presence.
