       A quatrain (ABBA) form with seven syllables per line.

    A penumbra is the shadow effect of the earth, which results in the eclipse of the moon.

    Make the font bigger!! Double Spacing Back to recent posts.


    In the shadows here am I,
    shielded from the blinding light,
    masked by darkened-shroud of night,
    in the heavens, You pass by.

    In Your glory there, I AM,
    all creation waits below.
    Earth yields life beneath your glow.
    Timeless pistons stroke the cam.

    'Cross this vast and endless void,
    filled with stars and emptiness,
    nothing more and nothing less,
    than Your Word deftly deployed.

    Words of power and of love
    whispered longings, which uplift;
    ev'ry utterance a gift,
    from the holy One above.

    And in awe shall I abide,
    through these scant and numbered days,
    touched and warmed by mercy's rays
    in the shadows where I hide.

    The Gadfly

      I really needed to read this right now. But this isn't about me. All of it is so true and well worded. It's a prayer. It describes when you're caught up in the darkness and how he's always there.

    Have you ever heard the song "Sometimes He Calms The Storm". Can't remember the artist's name. You'd love it, I'm sure.

    You did a great job. I love this.
