Surrender



SURRENDER

alone
hidden away in a rural retreat
I stop

an infusion of simplicity
substituted for chaos
brings heightened awareness:
textured rug underfoot
dog slurping from his bowl
tiny sparks rising in the chimney

brandishing only His Word
I seek God — not filtered

through salty tears of surrender
I eke out my confessions
doubts
wants
fears

I cross His bridge to
forgiveness
grace
love
