I Surrender

I Surrender

A Chapter by TL Boehm

Just a little God Poem


I surrender

To the exaltation of light

This baptism of fire

And liquid skies

Breathe a palette lit within

To delight a child

Songs break from tears

Beauty from ashes

This your legacy


I will seek you in the solace of morning

Receive the touch

Warm on my skin

Let praise rise

Like butterflies aloft

On gentle summer winds

Let hope bloom

Across the surface of my spirit


At peace

Reflecting the light

That is you

Breathe a palette lit within
Across the surface of my spirit

I loved the entire piece but these two lines were enchanting to me. Very nice.

lovely write. Reminded me of the lyrics to a song-"He gave me beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning and the spirit of praise for the garment of heaviness." Yes, a splendid trade indeed.
