Eventide Elixir

Lengthening shadows bid

a meeting at eventide

a gathering of fellows,

comrades in the battle

who know your toil

and identify with your pain.

There under cover of moonlight

we will wash your feet

then sort through stories

while picking out annoyances

and putting souls in order

as intimacy drops her veil.

In this bond of brotherhood

burdens borne too long

find release in Love’s eternal spring

flowing before time

to this moment’s appointment

for your restoration.

Note: This photo and accompanying poem is dedicated the women in our weekly Bible study and to all those everywhere who gather with friends in love to support them.

“By this all men will know that you are My disciples, if you have love for one another.”

John 13:35

    • Thank you. There are so many beautiful things in life to experience. Nature photography and the fellowship of friends are two of my favorites.

  1. This is so touching! I love the photo of the white birds gathering together and then your poem about your women friends gathering together to be there for eachother at your study. True friendship is such a beautiful and rare thing (as beautiful as these birds!). I know you ladies mean the world to eachother. Thanks for sharing!!!

    • Thank you, Lynn. We weren’t meant to go through this life alone. We really need to give and share the love of true friendship. It’s a gift from God.
