Open Vowels

I look for A...
    in the Amber glow of a coy sunset
    Altruism hiding behind a grey shadow of pride
I look for E...
    in the Everyday moments
    Easy-listening for a still, small voice
I look for I...
    in the waning Innocence of my little girl
    Inches above me, teetering a jaded tightrope
I look for O...
    in the Opulence of others
    Only to find it hovering in a hal-O above simplicity
I look for U...
    in the Understanding uninhibited me
    Unbound, untidy, untethered
Help me to look for the Y...
in You so much more than sometimes.

"You'll welcome us with open arms, when we run for cover to you...
You are famous for decking us out in delight." 
Psalm 5:11-12 (msg)

"While we have been pursuing God,
He has been rushing toward us with reckless love,
arms flung wide to hug us home." 
Ken Gire
