Faith or Trust


Faith or Trust

Faith
the texture of hope
the testament of the unseen
the bedrock of prayer

I come
holding tightly
the need no one
can meet

Bend the knee
unfold the hands
and wait
with confident expectation

What then
when silence
wraps around
and heaven turns to brass

Trust
assurance of divine understanding
confidence in infinite goodness
certainty of perfect love

Perhaps,
in reality,
two truths
inextricable woven
to make one whole

Blessings,
Linda

yes, indeed.

and poetry? you're full of great surprises! i like the "bend the knee, unfold the hands" lines best - how they roll off the tongue and heart and how "unfold" was unexpected.
