the best commentary I know on Jonah

Wide, wide as the ocean,
High as the heavens above,
Deep, deep as the deepest sea
Is my Saviour’s love.

I, though so unworthy,
Still am a child of his care.
And his word teaches me
His love reaches me…

Am I right?


momentary rainbows

Momentary rainbows.
Filled with promises and
an insistent delight –
“More bubbles! More bubbles!”

Was it Chaos Theory
Bouncing and lifting them
on Earth’s uneven breath?
Effervescent nothings.

Everyday alchemy:
Scientifically mixed
(Water, soap, glycerin)
Transmuted in the light

Of the late afternoon.
Each one a fragile sheen
Of laughter and beauty,
Chasing after the wind.
