There is Such Thing.


There is such thing as a soul birth.
A pushing, pulsing, downward drop towards light.
A quiet, sloppy, slipping into life
with new eyes and clean hands.

There is such thing as a soul stretch.

A scratching, cracking, dry skin-
a groaning, moaning, ache of sinewy-strength
winding into flesh and bone.

There is such thing as a soul scream.

a fall-to-my-knees, jerk of control from under my feet.
A pounding, bleeding, question
like a God-knife at my throat.

There is such thing as a soul cry.

A joy cry.  A dead-is-risen, resurrection cry.
A rescued-freedom chant beating out
of me like Hallelujah.

There is such thing a a soul song.

A throbbing, rising, love song.
A weaving, winding of voices into one song.
A this-is-finally-forever song.

There is such thing.

    1. Hey Liz! Thanks for stopping by! Isn't it awesome how nothing separates when believers who are strangers can join in rescued-freedom chants together?
