Breath(less)

I haven’t written in a while. Lately though, I’ve just been “coming up” with songs and poems in minutes on and off. Here’s a poem of mine. Brand new: 9/3/13

close enough to feel Your breath
it’s the same as I remember
full of words and sweet somethings and guiding graces
i can’t even speak
it feels surreal that the One I love is holding me
literally

the sky, for lack of words, is a color I’ve never seen
it envelops me
and the breeze echoes
eternity is an echo compared to the face I’m looking into
You look at me as i begin to sing hallelujahs forever
with a voice like a lyre

faster than light, time unassigned;
i’m seeing the cosmos although i’m so close
to Your heart
and my eyes are filled with things I can’t explain
no tears, just things: glorious and purposeful
heavy and soft

I knew this day would come but this is unexpected
delightful and unexpeced and wonderful
i’m breathless

Little Office Tour

Today it is raining VERY hard outside and I’m not feeling the least bit productive so I decided to get this long overdue post up. At last, I have for you a little office tour. This is where I spend most of my time. It’s still pretty bare right now; we just haven’t put a lot into decorating yet. Still, I love my space. I have plenty of room up here [on the second floor] and plenty of natural light that comes in during the day. True, I still don’t have those curtains I was going to buy, but I’ve actually enjoyed not having any; relishing as much sunlight as possible after living in a basement and this side of the apartment is next to a blank, brick wall so I still have my privacy. I’ll post updates as things get done/added but for now this is my workplace and my sanctuary.

I may add more pics too because it just occurred to me that you can’t really see that bookcase (that the candles and vase are on top of). It’s nothing exciting just packed with books. We have to get another bookcase to store them all.

And you know I always have a cat up here lol.
