I see roots of evergreen cypress trees float within the clouds and ocean waves break into floods; The floods find rest where i lay compressing my head into an array of darkness, while the cypress floats above it all like an evergreen water body graceful in its launch,
I consider the floods to the death;
I pray your thoughts find peace in a place of sense,
And the strokes of your pen like magic dance with grace,
A poem for each thought,
A story per season,
A dance for no reason,
And a song for a lover who wouldn’t listen,
May your song be guidance to him, singing ‘Grace! Grace! Peace be to him’.
As he speaks, his lips part slightly as though they were hiding his words from me,
His words reach me, but barely, although gently,
Like the wind, they brush through my ears, swiftly but calmly,
I stare in anticipation of his next words, i stare to grab the knowledge i couldn’t get before,
His lips part again, about to speak, but this time I’m tracing the letters in the air, as though i could see the vibrations that birthed them,
“Moyo, stop looking at them, you will see me,
Stop listening to the wind, you can hear me.”
Just smile and hold God’s hand,
Don’t lose hope this morning,
Take his hand, keep his words to heart.
He is the sun you need, in you there’s a living spring
You’re God’s child so drink.
Do not be discouraged by your lukewarmness,
Why do you think he has baptised you with His spirit and fire!
In you a hunger dwells, cry out! cry now! Ask for help,
Be loud and clear God is always here.
Be still my soul your God is on your side,
Let go of pride it only does you harm,
Let them call you soft, softer clay is better formed,
It becomes a vessel, and takes up the potter’s form.
If chocolates are supposed to release endorphins,
Why am i still unhappy eating all the sweets you gave me,
What other lie did you tell me.
Don’t stop gazing on the sun of righteousness until you’re blinded by His love,
Keep drowning in His sea of grace until it floods your soul,
Keep immersing your self in his Word until it seeps in your flesh and becomes one with your bones.
