Topic: Hum (06/06/13)

TITLE: Burning Desires

I want the flame to grow,
a large fire burning within,
a big desire, igniting, burning,
Growing, crawling up my skin.

I desire the hum to grow loud,
the melody to rise above,
fill my ears with its beauty,
and fly around me in Love.

I’m staring at the light,
illuminating in the dark,
wishing it would consume me,
wondering if it will spark.

I reach out for the bud,
I wish it would grow,
expand and fill with color,
so it’s beauty would show.

I am a small flame,
my life a quiet hum,
My soul has no light,
my spirit a tiny crumb.

I desperately cry out,
asking to forgive my sin,
I want my life to sing,
and the melody to begin.

He lays his hands on me,
“you are forgiven, my child”,
I can feel the flame grow,
and my spirit smile.

The quiet hum of my life,
turns into a song,
The bud grows into a rose,
The flame now a fire, so strong.

I think you did a wonderful job of taking me on a journey. I could feel God's voice as the hum turned into song. Beautiful.

What a lovely, heartfelt poem. The words were dancing on the page and pulling me in. A good use of the topic too. Well done.

I love the line reaching out for a bud and hoping it will grow, a wonderful way of expressing the way our faith grows. I know I already left a comment but as I read this again it just spoke to my heart this morning. Your poetry is beautiful. Thanks for starting my day!
