“Yours is the day, Yours also is the night;
You have established the heavenly lights and the sun.
You have fixed all the boundaries of the earth;
You have made summer and winter.“
– Psalm 74:16-17
Autumn (Psalm 74:16-17)
depravity stalks me
groaning until this
Fall is lifted
and as I
through long nights
I am struggling
wanting to take flight
from this chill
dry and dying
can’t ignore these colors all around me
orange, yellow, brown, red
of Your determination of grace:
the beautification of my mortification.
Daily dying is not in vain.
And I know
Winter’s freeze has lost its sting
from its clutch I will thus Spring
to even brighter beams
of light and color
Autumn is when
You prepare me.
