Michael Skelding Poems
You may not believe in his coming
Sometimes awareness overwhelms from the moment that you wake
Out of the land of singing came a song deep in the night while sleep
It is my bible and my prayer book and it's hymns sing constantly
from the moment
that you wake
there is a clarity you seek
but rarely find.
that is palpable
but without explanation
in our ordinary day.
is just a thread away
from offering a scene
that is complete.
