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!
