A fragile baptism peppers the deck,
each shake of limb in autumn wind
arouses flutter bottomward.
I sweep away once more.
Relentlessly they perfect their purpose,
celebrate Your passion.
If all would drop at once
I could keep it at bay, rather,
I release to Your miraculous pattern,
a shift and rare array with each
pad across the porch.
I sit in wonder, not grab
for dominion, You honor
me with grace at each turn,
relinquish marvel in every Breath.

Psalm 54: 6, The Message
I’m ready now to worship, so ready.
I thank you, God—you’re so good.
