that I may declare all thy works
Today's Poem
Near and Far 

I can taste the sky 
As I breathe the air 
Right here and now - 
Though, the length is far. 
I can see the twinkle 
From where I stand 
Of the nighttime 
Shimmering star. 

Far from my ears 
Are the curses and jeers 
Of those who mock 
The tender sheep 
Born of God's flock. 

Far from my mind 
Is the circumstance 
To ponder any evil --
Giving satan his chance. 

Near and far 
Remains the shadow 
Of God's wings 
Protecting me from 
Spiteful stings. 

I can place my burdens 
Far into the Hand 
Of One 
Who is near, 
That helps me to love 
And never fear. 

Near to my heart 
Are the eternal words 
Of the Lord 
Protecting me always 
With His mighty sword.

Psalm 73:27
For, lo, they that are far 
from thee shall perish: thou hast 
destroyed all them that go a whoring 
from thee. 
28 But it is good for me 
to draw near to God: 
I have put my trust in the Lord GOD, 
that I may declare all thy works
