The Mystery & The Kingdom by Linda Aleta Tame


Colossians 1:27 To them God has chosen to make known among the Gentiles the glorious riches of this mystery, which is Christ in you, the hope of glory.

Luke 17:21 .....For indeed, the Kingdom of God is within you.  



The Mystery

Beauty has in it
A calling

A deep calling
Resounds
& reveals ...
The Invisible

Beauty is seen
In our eyes

Our glistening eyes
Stream
& manifest
The Unknown...

Beauty captivates
Our hearts

Our expectant hearts
Swell
& yield...
The Mystery

The Kingdom 

You close your eyes
Everything slows down
The sound of everyday life
around you is
diminished 
in the sound 
of silence

You tune into the
frequency of
another dimension
another realm
A Kingdom
 And God is there

  1. MMmmmm..... Your words bring a deep, contented sigh to my heart this morning Linda.

    May I add that as one who has never been able to appreciate poetry, the more I'm exposed to it by our InScribe writers, the more I learn what a blessing it can be. Thx, poets!
