EKPHRASTIC LOVE

If
a
picture
is worth a
thousand words, then he
shall borrow all that he can to
describe the beauty he sees while gazing upon her.

In turn, he will lend her his eyes so she can see her
-self as the beauty that she is,
to see her full worth.
Their true love
is give
and
give.

GRAND REFLECTIONS

Standing at canyon’s edge, I
realize how very small
I really am. My presence
in this world is
inconsequential.

Yet, the still small voice of God
speaks to me; I know the depth
of my worth.
