Same Here...

PAD Challenge day 26:For today’s prompt, write a same poem.

Same sky
same sweeping of the
midnight dark awry
to light the same old earth
with that same sun
...pray, tell me why?

The breadth
of an hour does not change,
its tick-tock force
eases these dust-to-dust soul-frames
to God
in its discourse

...and there it is;
the awesome why
and wherefore of it all
This same dark- light
of day and night
Leads to a Great Roll-call

  1. The author of Hebrews writes that He is the same, yesterday, today and forever. Have you read the poem "Pied Beauty" by Gerard Manley Hopkins? It closes in a crescendo of "He fathers forth whose beauty is past change: Praise him."

    Ah, the inexpressible comfort of same...

  2. I will definitely look up that poem! and yes, truly inexpressible comfort of Jesus, the Same yesterday, today and forever!

    Thank-you. I always appreciate your thoughts.


Thank-you for stopping by my porch! I hope you were blessed by the visit!
