cascade

shadows dance upon earthen floor
gentle breezes give flight to wisps of auburn hair
as a porcelain hand gently reaches to grasp a treasure held so dear
tucked carefully into an amber leather bag

recalling hushed words spoken in the night
her deluge of thoughts cascade unto obedience

a door shuts in final confirmation
of dreams catalyzing her mission
as footsteps fall in stride with the Spiritís bidding
she holds the bag close to her surging heart

praying softly in the glow of lantern light
her words cascade unto faithfulness

help me to accomplish Your will, O God
she whispers into the night air
as her feet find rest at an open door
replete with questioning eyes

bowing in respect she relays the Spiritís dream
and Godís plan cascades unto the Masterís feet

His eyes, teeming with love, nod approval
as she falls before His presence
clenching the amber leather bag
and the culmination of her dream

a hand is offered as she arises
a divine moment cascades unto communion

fragrance floods the gathering of friends
at the presentation of the treasure
an alabaster vial, a young girl
chosen of God
for His saving plan

they knew not of this gift
of Godís love cascading unto their deliverance

droplets tumble over His merciful gaze
trickling down the Lordís cheeks
slowly descending upon His garments
baptizing Him in opulent aroma

she sighs, it is done
our salvation cascades unto the Cross





*reflective of Mathew 26:6-13 NAS
