All My Words Spring from You

Tanya Ferdinandusz

Words
I love to play with them
and work with them.
Wordplay,
playing one word against another,
fascinates me.

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the One and Only, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth.
John 1:1, 14 (NIV)

Words
Rhyme
Meter
Verse (sometimes worse)
Thoughts, feelings, emotion,
Poetry in motion.

All my words spring from you,
O Lord.
You are the Word,
the Word made flesh,
the Word of God.

 

PRAYER: Thank you, God, for the gift of words and song and poetry. Thank you for the gift of Jesus, the Word made flesh, who dwells among us and within us. Amen.
