Eye has not seen, Ear has not heard

I thought it was about time to post a bit of my poetry again. I don’t do it much; that is I don’t write it much and I rarely post it. Enjoy. 🙂

Eye has not seen, Ear has not heard by Amanda Smith

A dream, a fantastic vision passed before my eyes

I was in darkness

Lost in grey, stumbling, fall broken with sharp stubbly ground

Heaviness fell upon me, In fear and pain I cried out, Lord help!

 

A voice from I knew not spoke

Follow me, I am the way, the truth and the life

I listened and I ran, sometimes crawled

Following, yearning, throwing off what hindered and entangled

 

A fog, everywhere I looked it was grey, where am I going?

Revelation, inspiration, He spoke within me

Looking for a city, whose maker and builder is God

For ages I sought, hoping for the unseen

 

A sharp wind blew awakening my senses

A curtain was drawn and I saw

I stood on a mountainside

Before and behind was darkness but,

 

Before my eyes yet a few feet stretched the most beautiful, glorious vision

Colors of a sun beyond imagining, life breathed from every tree

Deep purples and blues of the lakes laughed

The flowers murmured their approval and broke into song

 

No more death, no more sorrow, no more crying and no more pain

Miles and miles the vision continued and I saw

The great city, the holy Jerusalem, adorned with precious stones

Shining of gold and light as clear as crystal

 

Perspective was given me as I returned to the shadow-lands

To the valley of the shadow of death

A few feet of darkness for thousands of miles of light

A moment to suffer for the ecstasy of eternity

 

This is a light affliction, a passing moment

Life is a vapor

We’ve got a minute

    “Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, nor have entered into the heart of man the things which God has prepared for those who love Him.”   I Corinthians 2:9

Just begun is half done…

My first attempt at Iambic Pentameter…. I am still working on the third stanza

The Triune God in perfect harmony

Happy are you eternally as One

You sit upon a throne gloried on high

But you will come to earth outshining suns 

—————– 

The man Christ Jesus reigns at God’s right hand

What joy to dwell in unity fragrant

Like oil on Aaron’s beard is the blessing

Behold in the midst of the throne a lamb
