Gideon’s Challenge

Catch  of a Lifetime

Out of all
the fish in the sea
it is only me
Your eye drawn
and your breath caught
You couldn’t look away
You reached out
and your fist curled
around my throat
and then my soul
and I have fallen
so deeply
that it is only you
I see now too

I am the chosen
and yours.

Gideon’s Challenge

IMG_7591Delicate and Tenacious

Hope is a glowing star
in a night sky,
a shimmering flower
in the shade
delicate  and open
vulnerable and lovely
easily crushed
with a careless hand
or the wrong conditions
and yet
given the chance
to flourish and shine
with the smallest kiss
of encouragement
