Where We Sat Down

The Lord once made the earth,

and likewise made the sky,

and when He looked upon the earth,

and saw what He had done,

He saw that it was good.

The evil that men do

is heard throughout the lands.

It is the calling of the many

and remembered throughout the age.

The king gazed at all the stars,

he saw the wonder of the night.

He heard the silence of his city

and saw that it was good.

Nightly he wandered the fields

and listened to the wonder of the silence.

In the light of the moon

He saw the land glowing in the glory

and he saw that it was good.

He listened to the voice that had no sound,

to the words that had no speech,

and he heard them calling,

the words that had no sound.

The wars of nations

and the evil in our hearts,

found rest on this day

in the pastures of the mountain.

The weary of this world

found their rest on this day.

The broken and the pilgrims

heard the voice

among the whispers of the stars,

among the silent passage of the clouds,

behind the sounds of their own breathing,

among the murmurs of the darkness.

They saw the tears and listened

to the silent heart aches.

The king heard the cry of his people

and sent his promise to the wind

and he will put his words in his mouth,

and the promise will be good.

About jedwardnajera

I am an artist and a Poet. I live the life of a poet. I published several novels. Nena the Fairy and the Iron Rose, Dust of the Moon are among them, available through Amazon Books. I have spent over thirty five years in a classroom. I am now retired from that profession. My father kept a living record of his lifetime as he lived through the Twentieth Century. He was born in 1908 and almost lived long enough to see us enter the new millennium. He entrusted to me nearly 400 pages that he wrote through the years. Now I am continuing the tradition by posting my own stories and misadventures. I am trying to post a new entry or chapter each Friday. Check in on us at least once a week for the latest post.
