-Pounding-

I ran yesterday.
sweat droplets; ipod loud.
Pounding the pavement,
Observing the clouds.

Ever do they move
A floating majesty,
Mindful of their Maker,
Pondering His great trajectory.

I ran yesterday.
A cluttered attic...my mind was filled.
Cobweb laiden with life's markings,
Sweeping to find God's will.

Exhaling for peace.
Inhaling each piece.

The puzzle's design.
Yours and Mine.

His pace; His timing.
I thirst for defining.

14 lbs. lighter
-my sweet friend-
A new beginning...
33 years
She runs to the light pole once again.

Proud I am.
I'll meet her there.
Always.

Exhaling for peace.
Inhaling each piece.

Sweeping to find God's will.

Cobwebs
Pounding

Dum-dum lollies
He gave them out to all.
A coach committed,
Yesterday cancer made his final playbook call.

Dum-dum wrappers sprinkled all over Heaven's floor.
Sweetly, I smile.

Pounding the pavement.

A friend.
Her smile big and bright.
Cheery demeanor with a soul so warm.
Her cancer: yesterday she began her 2nd fight.

I pray.

Exhaling for peace.
Inhaling each piece.

A loved one
Believes not in Him.
Stubborn; mind set.
Prayer. Hope. Soul breaking...
God's grace to win.

Pounding
Pondering
Cobwebs
Sweeping to find God's will.

I run faster.

Complex
I know Your love.
Compassion
Pounding the pavement.

14 lbs.
dum-dums
the battle
the unbeliever

The puzzle's design,
Yours and Mine.

His pace; His timing.
I thirst for defining.

Laiden with life's markings.
ipod loud.
I pray.

beautiful tribute...

but honestly it's much more relaxing to inhale/exhale while doing yoga than pounding the pavement running :)

bring on the downward facing dog!!
