Crown of Glory
As I reflect back on the things I did in the last 365 days
To commemorate the end of my fourth decade
I am resolved in excitement about what the other side of forty might bring;
Because the trek to forty, it taught me some things.
In the last 365 days...
I cruised the Caribbean
I wrote in Bimini
The same place MLK wrote his now famous "I've been to the mountiantop" speech
Just days before his death
But then, I didn't have much to say.
I sat for hours and watched the waves
I stood in deep waters and saw my toes buried in white sand
It was so soft, and so smooth, and so scerene.
I stood there quietly, engulfed in the waters
Relishing in God's creativity and soverighnty.
My grief, swallowed up by the sea.
I left the last 15 years of dry seasons in Bimini
And it's waves ushered me into freedom...
