NaPoWriMo Days 10 & 11

For day 10:

I Need Not Flee

I fled him down the nights and down the days
But I ran unaware I would be caught.
For love is greater yet than rebel ways
And would that I had known t’was all for naught.
I am too loved to be left free to stray
And he the gracious one my freedom bought.
I need not flee as though a sinner scorned;
For rather, I am sought, loved, and reborn.

From Francis Thompson:
“I fled Him, down the nights and down the days;
I fled Him, down the arches of the years;
I fled Him, down the labyrinthine ways
Of my own mind; and in the mist of tears
I hid from Him, and under running laughter.”

For day 11:

Next

I feel a sense of next
In everything.
“When finally I am able, I will.”

“After this season, I will.”

But there is no hurry
To next.

For time is a measurement of the progression of history through space

And in the present, I can in fact
see and hear and touch and taste and love and move and grow and learn and be

Let now be a moment in which nothing happens
And everything happens.

From:

“Much good happens in the space where nothing is happening.” –Christa Wells
