Adagio Composers

Mondays, especially gray ones, especially during lockdowns
 can feel a bit heavy some weeks, 
but it takes the ebb and flow of high and low 
to compose Masterpiece Adagios.
We are still in the middle of what could will be
a Masterpiece, if we put our faith in the 
Forever Faultless, Faithful Keeper of fumbling 'composers'!

Where highs and lows compete 
With shores that disappear
Where Today spreads a music sheet 
Replete with Now and Here

Where love and longing spark 
A strange adagio 
Like waves that roll across the heart 
In soulful ebb and flow 

Where darksome, daily grind 
And laughter, silver-teal 
Will fill the bars soon left behind
With symphonies, surreal 

Where what we have and hold 
Is soon the wafting fray 
Of melodies that fill the old 
-en world of yesterday 

Where swift, soft moments splay 
Gilt lilt of high and low 
To compose with notes of today 
Morrow’s adagio

This morning's Daily Bread Devotion Bible Reading-

Psalm 121

I will lift up my eyes to the hills—
From whence comes my help?
2 My help comes from the Lord,
Who made heaven and earth.

3 He will not allow your foot to [a]be moved;
He who keeps you will not slumber.
4 Behold, He who keeps Israel
Shall neither slumber nor sleep.

5 The Lord is your [b]keeper;
The Lord is your shade at your right hand.
6 The sun shall not strike you by day,
Nor the moon by night.

7 The Lord shall [c]preserve you from all evil;
He shall preserve your soul.
8 The Lord shall preserve[d] your going out and your coming in
From this time forth, and even forevermore.
