The Rustling of the Spirit

The Rustling of the Spirit

A Poem by Melinda McQueen

The Rustling of the Spirit

As a cool breeze blows,

And is fully known,

So too, is the Holy Spirit

Who dwells in all who hear it.

 

Abiding in a special place

Meant only for His grace,

A gentle calling, do you feel it?

The rustling of the Spirit.

 

A tender touch of the truest love,

A work begun.

As the wind scatters fallen leaves in haste,

The Holy Spirit gathers brokenness in His grace.

 

Eyes are opened

And hearts deepened,

Humbled souls fear it;

The rustling of the Spirit.

 

A love to seek,

Ready to make you complete.

Ever there, ever willing,

His power to the soul is stilling.

 

How glorious is the Lord

Who reigns forevermore.

Let all adhere it;

The rustling of the Spirit.

Your poetic symbolism helps the reader to obtain a comprehensive understanding of religious poetry, through which they are liberated. Pleasantly flowing gentle composition of praise and glorification … bless! :-)

I like how you repeat the phrase "the rustling of the Spirit" to emphasize how God is ever present in our lives. Your poem is powerful and inspirational.

As you mention, the Lord supports and empowers people to live fully. Your poem could be a song!
