the eighth day of autumn

In that vulnerable voice
you asked me if the quiet
had brought me clarity.

I drove in to work today
and found a rainbow in the sky.

When I search for God,
sometimes it feels like he hides himself.
But today I remember
he breathes his word through
creation, living in us and the leaves
and the wind and the clouds.

When I see a rainbow,
I feel like the new earth is being unveiled,
the seasons are changing, and God still
keeps his promises.

When I think of you darling,
in the midst of all of this,
life’s day-to-day grind,
work and mundane, checklists and meetings,
eating and sleeping and driving,
I know we will last forever.
Our love has full clarity inside of me.

Autumn has caught her grip on us,
pushing us forward, pulling us out
into the rest of what we will be.
