Listen With Your Heart

Poems are like prayers,
first spoken in the heart.
gentle words of Godly meaning,
mingled with this world's dreaming.
From mountain top's majestic reign,
to desert's endless sandy plain,
speaks the soul's unknown prose,
in words formed the way only a poet knows.
From soul to soul the words transfer,
stirring each heart as understanding occurs.
Today's meaning differs from tomorrow's truth,
even for the writer whose pen was loosed.
The writer knows writing is a gift only,
not polished by knowledge but given soul-ly.
Playing with words like a favorite game,
but with much more serious winnings to gain.
To stir hearts and souls with just a few short lines,
can only be the result of His glorious design.
Providing a moment of eternal comfort or hope,
spoken to searchers through heaven's clear notes.
Psalm 19:14 – "Let the words of my mouth and the
meditations of my heart be acceptable in Thy sight,
O Lord, my rock and my redeemer."
