Insight and discussion from author about the poem, Faith Full by C.E.K. Nelson

FAITH FULL
Waiting for the return.
Given this day
our daily hope...
everyday.
Scouting the wondering hearts,
looking for the faithful.

A promise left behind
of the material sign
bearing witness to the faithful.

Though art forlorn
left behind to mourn,
until the return
fills the faith full.
- C.E.K Nelson

I created this poem in order to depict Christian's waiting for the return of Christ. It also illustrates our need as humans,and for that matter animals, to grasp on to something more than ourselves, a higher power. This "faith" in something or someone that/who gives us a sense of hope. We are always searching for the next, the higher power, the answer. Might we not find it within ourselves- perhaps our faith is already full ... A material sign may not need to exist for proof or a promise of fulfillment. We must take care not to put too much faith in the material and the political or our faith may loose it's way.

Oh my goodness!!!.....thank you so much!!!!!!!!!
Your talent is profound..............your artwork is exquisite and your words work hand in hand with the painting to deliver a message that is one that many of us may relate to! Your questions posed at the end of your message are ones to ponder. What do we believe, what is in our spirit that urges us to believe, to have faith in the message of The Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ!
I am so very glad I have found your work.....read a review you have done for James Hanna-Magill.
May we continue to spread the word of our Lord!!!
Blessings,
Sheila
