safe sanctuary


close restaurants
and coffee shops,
take away my chai
latte and stuffed crab,
hang the last TP rolls
from nearest tree, and
cancel church services

even if infected with
coronavirus at home
(my childhood home
was on corona street)
& quarantined, i will
yet have a sanctuary
for my heart to rest

within the soul’s home
found in Yahweh/God
whose name is breath;
i breathe His presence
as close as a heartbeat,
prayers whispered and
translated by the Spirit

forever and ever amen.

    I am so glad I know you, Lynn. My poetry friend. And sister in Grace! Hope you are taking care…in His care! 😉

    This is just wonderful, Lynn. And so true. Be well and enjoy His presence in this solitude.
