Anticipating Green

I recalled this summer poem, as I am staying home with a bit of a bug this Friday.


Peace! (Photo credit: aldrin_muya)

In morning devotion in July 2013:

At Peace Now

At peace this bright July morning,
Green grass as deep green and fragrant as I can recall,
The sky clear and welcoming me,
The lake crystalline and deep azure,
I fear nothing today.
At peace this beautiful day,
Cardinals speaking calmly across my garden,
Mosquitoes away from me,
The air crisp and warm, dry on my face and neck,
I am filled with my master today,
I am at peace now.
I look ahead and see things that take my breath away;
Gems and pearls shine in the sun,
But never impress me.
It is the master alone.
Precious metals never move me.
I have heard a voice say,
“Blessed are those who die in the Master.”
I am at peace.
The doors are open,
And the path is clear.
I am at peace now.

Contemplating Revelation


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.
