Pause for Prayer: FRIDAY 10/11

Photo by CP

Was it in the dead of night, Lord,
or just before dawn?

Did you walk down my street
and climb a few trees
or reach from heaven,
your brush in hand?

Is rusty orange your favorite hue
or just the first on this year's palette?

Will you soon return to add more color
while I keep vigil, hoping to learn
the secret time when you arrive
to the paint the leaves before they fall?

Your artistry's a gift to me and all
whose eyes are open for hints you leave
on branches gently touched
by brushes with divinity and grace...

In the dead of night or just before dawn
reach down, Lord, brush in hand,
to touch my soul and leave upon it
traces of your visit and your peace...
