No Time to Resist...



 PAD Challenge Day one: write a resistance poem

Time extends its invitation
Rising from yon beaming brink
Renewal and expectation
Dawn Hand-painted, gold and pink

Who will dare resist its offer?
This, the day the Lord has made
Spills to earth from heaven’s coffer
Melting midnight’s palisade

We were born for this, my darling
Let the Past its vastness prey
See, the sky is full of morning
Come, before it fades away

On the harpsichord of ages
Moment-melodies untwist
Time is eager to turn pages
We have no time to resist

  1. Yes, "this is the day that the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it." Your first two stanzas have me contemplating that snippet of scripture in a new light (no pun intended).
