Please conceive a poem in me
I prayed to You, Eternal Love.
Cinquains came, then Your Fire inspired
free verse like votive candles here and there
with family in Greenbelt, Blacksburg, Broken Arrow,
Texarkana, Boulder, Denver, Grand Rapids and Lansing.
Love Light, how You shone in celebrations
for the lives of Johnie Wilson, Bill Ribbens,
Annie Mae Ballou and Myrtle Pippin!
Peace Beacon, how You gleamed in
daycare kids’ senior center visits,
on women’s nights out with church friends,
at homes, churches, lakes, trails, pools, museums,
so many places making memories with Judah!
