Friend:

Let me explain this situation, for the hour of the morning is early. There is darkness, and it is quiet as I continue my work on the new poem. I've been thinking, and wishing, that a new poem would come to me, for it is in the waiting that a premonition can be found for the inspiration of a work. Even a short work like this religious poem that expresses how the Spirit of the Lord is Upon me.

It was earlier in the day, considering that the hour of the morning of the next day is here, so it was really the evening of the day before, that I was telling a friend that the spirit of God came upon the character of the Bible with long, curly hair who said, The Spirit of the Lord is Upon Me. His name escaped my friend. But you know who I mean.

Anyway, this Epiphany in the season of Epiphany entered my mind and I became conscious of the words, which wrote themselves. So it seemed. So it seems. It was earlier today I spoke via internet with a new friend about poetry, and the inspiration that contemplation brings. I spoke about the inspiration that comes of taking Communion. I did not say that inspiration also comes of prayer. But he knows things like that, I am sure, for he teaches in College. People who go to Church know things about prayer, that some of those who don't get to do the work of attending worship have missed. Ah, so it is.

The new poem, written in the wee hours of the morning:

Speak to my Heart

By Peter Menkin

January 25, 2010



I have waited on the Lord,

In the stillness of my mind.

In the music of a hymn,

In a conversation with a friend.



It is in the loveliness of a flower,

And the color of the light of day

Lost in a prayer from the prayer book,

I have waited on the Lord.



My friend, it is the pleasure of life,

The knowledge in simplicity of knowing

One another, and even the times that come looming

To the psyche of trials and fears in a tunnel

Where confinement of spirit and mind



Make the soul weep and wonder

That there is comfort in knowing you

Lord. Speak to my heart.


If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
