Upon Matthew 25:46, walking.

               Alone and Frost

Fresh, deep-edged crystals frost the tall, emerald blades,
as I walk to greet Him this morning.
I am alone.
Alone as the first one, and Christ alone,
and I alone here.
This rhythm of life,
repeating again about me,
withdrawal and activism,
community and loneliness,
energy restores.
Loneliness comes upon us and with us.
And then again, we anticipate new fellowship too.

About Tom Bolton

I'm a Husband and Dad, an Enterprise Systems Manager at the City of Milwaukee, and a Disciple and Lay Servant at First United Methodist of West Allis. I love working beside young people. As I study the Bible, sometimes I feel moved to work through my understanding by writing poetry. I also am going through a process to discern my calling, and to learn more about Christian Leadership. Sometimes I just feel like writing about something that grabs my attention too.
