Hidden Places

Father,


I long to come out and dance

but I have forgotten how.


All I know in this moment

is how to hide

under waves

of must do’s,


one is completed,

another arrives,

luring my soul

farther away

from your presence.


Will you hear my faint whispers

that are hard to voice

from hidden places

under deep covers of activity?


My soul longs for silence.

My soul longs to be heard.


Teach me how to let go

of lists that bind.


Teach my soul God

how to dance again with you

in silence and solitude


even when demands of life are present.


With Love

Robin


P.S Blogger has decided this is the way the words are going to be arranged!



I am not sure why but for the last few weeks AVG has not let me view others blogs. My time is limited on the internet and with the slow connection I have been getting frustrated. I am sorry for not commenting on others blogs...I will try and figure out my dilemma.

Beautiful picture and poem. May the Lord sustain you with His strength as you do the work for Him. May you also find rest in His presence.

I had problem one time too leaving comments on some sites and even my own. I remember you telling me you were not able to leave a comment for me.

I use Firefox, clicked on "Tools" and then selected "Options" on the bottom. I tried clicking on where it says "accept cookies from sites" and "accept third party cookies". I'm not a computer savvy but for some reason, I never had a problem since. Hope you find what's wrong. Blessings to you sister.

This poem reminded me of many of my own emotions and concerns I hold with both my father of this world and the heavenly sphere. The dance is an interesting aspect, is this the dance of introductions or a father-daughter dance in a marriage ceremony? I don't think it matters which, but that it can be both. Cheers!
