Do You Not Know?

Have you not heard?
Heard about the Lord?

Even the birds know
the little house finch, who
flies by my window and 
alights on the railing ~
poised just so...
just so I can see him through the slated blinds. 
Does he want to soar like an eagle?
Higher and farther than he can go now
strengthened by God to expand his horizons.

I am like the house finch
with a limited territory
I grow tired of my boundaries
I would like to soar like an eagle,
perhaps to ride on a dragon
for if all things are possible with God ~
why not?

I will close my eyes and soar
soar like an eagle
like an angel
opening my heart & soul to God
so that I may be strengthened
in turn to strengthen others.
Given hope, I will walk
I will walk with my sisters and brothers
and they with me, we will not faint.

I have heard
Heard about the Lord
and I am blessed.

Based on Isaiah 40:28-31
