Poem: Steep Traverse

He ribboned the hues of His heart
into the hope of your promise
blew into your fingers the techniques
of compassion
covering your very being with the strength
to stand

and then one day He determined,
called you to traverse upon the ladder
placed upon the earth's vertical wall
your toes responded
the waters drew back
drying their tears as you tipped into
their rocky river bed of dangerous faith

your each step reverberating out
the cries of perserverance
dotting the blazing horizon with
the covenant of life
the open seal of the graceful blue above
sponging your crown

the fascination of rebirth
the strength to walk long
the journey of a precipice

birthed during the climb
