kaleidoscoping light

Light waves reflect from the surface of my skin. I know where I am, but I don’t know where I’ve been. The rush of electricity feels foreign to my dismal way of thinking. Perhaps I am meant to be grounded. I twist the dial once more to my left. The picture changes. I see my variant laughing on the side of the highway looking for a ride east. He’s alone, but happier than I am now. The dial twists again. This time I am surrounded in tapestries of wool– a castle of old with a man of new. The grim taste of earth lines my lips and I am somewhat taken back to a time long before I existed. Both images petrify me. I hoped things would be different, but– in some way beyond my comprehension, they are just the way they’re meant to be. I cannot change what is down the road from me, no matter how many times I turn the dial, my path is set in concrete.

a fallen world 
lead by the flesh
a savior was needed
to save us all.
Innocent
Sinless

He came to carry
the
Burden.
Betrayed by flesh,
it was finished.
Set on the cross,
in our place.

paid the price.
Jesus, my savior
my protector
my defender
my redeemer
I thank you.

Iris

Hazel eyes, kaleidoscope skies
Window's rolled down
Bodies bound in ties
There's no disguise
Just you
And I.
Fresh air
Mountain peaks
Oceans blues
ADVENTURE BLOOMS.
Homeward
Onward
Skyward
Hand
in 
Hand
Today
Tomorrow
Yesterday
And always
My iris
My lover
My muse
Mine.
