To Know and Be Known

The warm earth
beneath my feet trembles
with knowledge of our Creator

We have this in common,
the earth and me,
the One who knows us
and desires to be known

Sometimes I forget Him
Forget I am His beloved

The earth never does

  10. I really like the opening image of “The warm earth
    beneath my feet trembles
    with knowledge” — I’m instantly barefoot and highly sensitive. I feel your heart.

  11. The earth is such an integral part of our being and therefore our individual faiths too. Well-penned.

    This is such an honest Quadrille, Linda, which speaks from the heart and soul. I love the lines:
    ‘Sometimes I forget Him
    Forget I am His beloved

    The earth never does’.
