Shadow

Too many wander

In shadows that stretch

Well beyond origin

Led astray by syn-

thetic fleeting lust

A Vacuum of love

Trailing off behind

Leaving a pall spread

Wide as a mountain

Crested horizon

Yet daylight darkened

By shadow-forming

Christians not bowed down

Cannot keep God’s grace

From pouring outward

Through poor and humble

Servants on the ground

One thought on “Shadow

  1. I like this poem a lot. I’ve been reading some early Christian poetry lately. Have you ever read George Herbert?
