Will the Guest Show?

Like the dove on a church spire, cooing a winsome song

Like the falcon on a cliff, scanning for prey

Like the soldier pacing through the watches of the night

There is One who waits and watches

Will the guest show?

The One who waits and watches

Would gladly use the fowler’s net to capture all your thoughts

Would gladly send a naval fleet to bring you back to shore

Would gladly wait a thousand years to hear your voice once more

Will the guest show?

Poem: “Will the Guest Show?”

The guest is you. The One who waits and watches is God, awaiting the soul to give Him a drop of love, a drop of affection, a drop of attention. He waits and wonders, will you show up and approach Him in your thoughts, words, actions and deeds…

  1. Thank you for following Riverside Peace. After reading some of your posts I decided to follow you too. Or, was that after I read: “I live in the Midwest, I’m married and a mother to 5 (now grown) children.

    So grab a glass of wine…” 😉
