The Journey Continues

OctPoWriMo

Day 10 of OctPoWriMo . . .

Today’s prompt encourages us to gain inspiration from another poem. I decided to use my first blog post from June 2010. Here it is . . .

Free to soar…

Untethered.

Riding the currents high above the ground

Like a magnificent hot air balloon

Or an eagle gliding effortlessly.

While I soar…

Do I unwittingly send others plummeting to the ground?

Do I entangle them in ropes that hinder their flight?

Or do I simply leave them where they are?

Grounded.

As this adventure takes to the sky,

May we all fly a little higher

And help others do the same.

…they who wait for the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles; they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not faint (Isaiah 40:31, ESV).

And the journey continues . . .

I continue to soar.

My wings are stronger

And yet . . .

I seek to carry more.

Will those things I clutch weigh me down?

Will the things I cling to really help others

Or should I let something go . . .

Perhaps many somethings?

I am to ride the currents

Strong and majestic

Like an eagle

Not bulky and lumbering

Like a transport aircraft.

So today

I will rise

To new heights

Set an example

And hope beyond hope

Honour the God who calls me to soar.
