Songs from the edge of exile: 6

Can this ground ,

(this ground!) be

a planting

for the display

of your splendour?

Can each rock


become a prayer

bringing healing

 to a long

forgotten place?

What of the glass shards

threatening our

searching hands,

how do they speak to us

of lost dreams,

and times past?

 How should we respond?

We will clear and plant

this ground,

sowing seeds of hope

for a future generation

to enjoy.

Then as we sow, as we

raise new songs

to heaven,

will you shower us

with mercy

and with grace?

Can this ground be

a planting

for the display

of your splendour


About Sally C

How do I describe myself, I am not what I do, (I am a Methodist Minister), I am not who I am related to (I have 5 wonderful children, 2 lovely granddaughters and 2 lovely grandsons). I am a seeker truth, a partaker of life in all it's fullness and a follower, sometimes stumbling, sometimes celebrating of the Christian pathway. I seek wholeness, joy and a connectedness to all things through a deep reconciliation with the God whose love blows my socks off! I love walking, swimming and photography, I dabble with paint and poetry...
