My poem.....

The way you shimmer in light
dancing to a music that no one can hear
as if waiting for a crescendo,
wishing to fly, gliding on air,
but never takes off.....

The way you shimmer in light
moving without a wave of motion
beckoning me with your accents, your faux sophistication,
begging for a sip of from your lips,
but is left to a plateau....

The way you shimmer in light
I thought I would want to be with you,
your scent like hands drawing me to your rim
finishing smooth and mellow
but leaving me heart broken....

To me you shimmer no more....

Kristi will Find this sooner or later

I am sitting watching out the window as the snow falls onto the once green grass of the back yard. It is 9:35 and a bit of boredom has started creeping in. Blogging was not what I would have pictured doing with an evening, but one must do something while the rest of the world watches Lost correct? So I sit, sipping blueberry-green tea, and watch the snow fall.
It is beautiful. How when you go for a stroll and the only thing you hear is snow caressing the ground. Cars drive by in an almost utter silence and light reflects off the wall of shimmer which falls to earth ever so gently.
It is beautiful, and it makes me wonder.....will heaven have snow? I know that may seem silly, but I love snow. What it represents, how we were once in sin, and now, through the grace of a God so big that he loves us enough to forgive us. To forgive us every time we sin. To encourage us not to time and time and time and time again. As His shimmer falls on us and caresses us ever so gently.
