A journey in creativity and faith

I have sown thistles

I have sown thistles for too long
What is my new me?
I’ve stood in the rain
(inside)
The water dries up
In the valley of tears
Flood of sand
Who can enclose the darkness?
I long for the one who died for me and now lives

In the shadow of your wings

The sun is shining
on the folded hands
I’m only dust

The curtain of the sky
Torn apart
The head is filled
With your word
The day sleeps no longer
Waiting for the lamb
On my knees
I’m lying
In the shadow
Of your wings

Only you, Lord can quench
The thirst
In my soul
Eternal you
You, the only God
You are my life and my light
You are who you are

Get up

Rain
tiredness
I can’t feel myself
A bird flies into the window
The body is a stone
Don’t wanna get up
The cold fingers
Write no more
I’m tired and hungry
I can’t do anything
Headache, autumn storm, October rain, moving mess and emptiness
I am powerless

Grass withers

The wind
blows back and forth
withered grass

Empty me
of my emptiness
the old must die
the void must become fullness
the fullness of love

Grass withers
the word stands
forever

A world of drops

What if we slow down
Turn off the TV, radio and cell phone
Walk in stead of running
Stop
and see

 

The dew in the grass
Raindrops
bladdråberMoist stalks
Drops on the glass
The plop of the tap
Drops of
Coffee
Vegetable oil, grease
At the bottom of the pan

God
Sees his creation
“Everything is beautiful and good”
God sees every drop
He see it’s beautiful
God loves his creation
