The Visit (5 Minute Friday)


What do you desire,
but this one, specific thing?
That which lies within 
will make your heart sing…
It is in the desire
to feel the presence near
of those we love and who love us
and all we hold dear
I long for you to stay
and spend some time alone
not distracted by your thoughts
or with your fancy phone
Not making your to do list
or dishing out demands
But with an open heart 
that yields to my commands
The one that sits and visits
will know me very well
I promise to reveal myself 
John 14:21 does tell
Whom receives my instruction
sees the Son of Man
In the stillness, sees me
and my Fathers Mighty hand. 
Poetry is my default! Join us at Lisa Jo’s where we write for 5 minutes on Friday, and sometimes Thursday, but last night I hit the hay at 9 PM, folks!

    Hi, stopping by from FMF as well. I almost wrote on the need for that personal visit we need to make with God each day. It is the most important one of all. Thanks for sharing. I enjoyed reading your poem.Mary-andering CreativelyMary-andering Among the Pages

    “Not distracted by your thoughts” That's sometimes my downfall.A poem that provokes thought,(means a good one.)
