Gladness – a poem reflecting on Psalm 16:9,10
Gladness, a safe coat wraps around me in a warm glow that streams from within and radiates out into the world. My tongue thrills, rejoices, sings “hallelujahs” of childlike spontaneous praise, uttering, babbling, outpouring words tumbling, end over end, water rushing over rocks. Why? Why? You ask! Because the dirt dark cold ground cannot restrain,clamp or hold the child of God in its filthy grip. The Christ tore its hold, ripped open its frozen clutch from the damp darkness. Rejoice , Sing, Shout Angel praises of everlasting thanks!
