Earth And Heaven

Earth And Heaven

1920 1279 Catherine Lawton

As wind in the forest bends the trees
With sounds of whooshing and unearthly creaks,
In Sunday sanctuary where footfalls creak wood,
Both moved and moving, both chosen and choosing;
With thoughts of earth and songs of Heaven, with
Longings and doubts, with tears and petitions;
The creaking of dry souls as elements are passed;
Whispers like sweet breezes flow down the pew,
Saying, “This is His body broken for you.”

 

Catherine Lawton’s poetry collection, Remembering Softly: A Life In Poems is available through Amazon and Cladach Publishing.

Catherine (Cathy) Lawton has enjoyed producing written expression since she was a toddler scribbling in the margins of her preacher-father's theology books. From age 12 to the present she has written poems, articles, stories, books, and blogs--often for publication. In 1999 she founded Cladach Publishing, where, as publisher and editor she enjoys giving other authors opportunities to share their ideas, expertise, and stories with readers. Cathy's first love is poetry. The compiled poems of her life (so far) comprise a spiritual and emotional memoir of searching faith, sometimes faltering but constantly clinging to hope, while learning to love.

  • This is an absolutely stunning poem. I’ve been one of those dry souls receiving the elements and waiting for the breeze of the Spirit. Thanks for this.

  • I appreciate your comment, Jeannie. Yes, aren’t we thankful for the Sweet Breeze of Heaven touching our earthly lives.
