Oh, Pinions

Oh, Pinions!
I clipped my wings so I could fly;

Soar higher than before. 

My focus has moved to my wing’s length-

I’m stuck here on the floor.
My gaze weighs so heavy 

That it pulls unwanted thoughts in…

Moving me deeper in this cage;

My head’s beginning to swim!
I was meant to fly ; even past 

Intimidating Mountains that block the Sun.

So watch me now as I take the plunge;

Allowing my feathers to be undone-
For it’s not by my strength the wind carries me great distances through the sky;

Jesus remind me that You’re holding me

As You teach me how to fly.


I Forever Salute You!


Springtime, Where Are You?

Why doesn’t a farmer wait by a seed to watch it grow?

Or dig it up to see if it is breathing?

How painful it is to wait!

The birds tease with their song –

I’ll go take a nap.

Taking Flight

This bird’s about to fly;
Test my wings and soar.
Lord, may I pass this test…
Not end up on the floor.
Hold my head up high
As I fight through storms today;
Help me use my wings
God I trust You today.
