Now and Then

Now my vision warps, distorts,

as through a glass I view my life;

frosty film in darkness courts

misconstructions, blindness rife

with apprehensions misconstrued,

where senses, seizing on a ghost

demand surrender to the food

that liars choose to feed on most


Then, my blindness will be healed,

cataracts will be removed;

scummy blur will be repealed

as trust in what is real is proved

to make all else fade into night,

misty membranes melt away;

I will recognize the Right

when Truth and Beauty shine like day.

      Thanks my friend! I’m going to try to get out your way tonight – this week is INSANE for appointments and requirements and the to-do list is harassing me…so I may not be around as much until next week.

      • Caddo Veil says:

        Sounds like I need to send up Commando Caddo prayers for you, Melody–no problema, I’ll be here waiting when you come down/return. God bless you Big with His Peace and Strength and JOY.
