Off To See The King

Posted on

I’m off to see the King!
His dwelling place is deep within,
And yet it’s over yonder.
Where clouds collide with setting sun,
Leaving me to ponder.

What if I press through,
Into that piercing pocket?
Its veil so thin
All of Heaven bids me ‘Come in!’

Mounting the steed called Faith
I cast my doubt aside
Giving Him rein, I lean in for speed,
And breathlessly enjoy the ride.

Into the Kingdom we stride as one,
My scarlet cape flutters.
With every step the atmosphere shudders -
Charged! Brilliant and free!

‘What will I find?’
my pounding heart wanders.
Will it mesmerize like gold and stories untold?
Then I hear Love’s voice calling to me.

My head snaps about
As I look for the source.
I dismount my ride as we end our course.
I bow low.

Love speaks again
With a voice so soft
My heart smolders with a mixture of thoughts.
‘Daughter. Let’s change your name.’

I fumble to the ground face down,
the altar before me
where now my death to self will kiss the King of Glory.

The world behind me
in filmy disarray.
I give it not a thought while before the altar I lay.

Transformed I know
I cannot stay away.
