Life Space – 7/13/12

a discussion with a friend over “Higgs Faith” now has me teasing apart faith, hope and love, to see where one starts and the next begins, or to see what the world looks like from each perspective. Are they a progression or axes pointing in different directions defining my life space?

and love
these three
last forever

a grounding
in trust
a belief that I can find
solid ground
to stand on

that my better
can become reality

that believes
and hopes
the best for me
and delights with me
in success
and stays with me
in failure
giving my life

lost faith
leaves me nowhere to stand

lost hope
leaves me no way forward

lost love
leaves me


About Clark W Johnson

I am a poet, interested in using poetry to explore my interactions with the spiritual. I find poetry captures tension, paradox and flow well enough so I can hold experiences at arms length and reflect on them from multiple vantage points. As I walk deeper with my God, I'm finding such a record invaluable for myself, and I find that pieces and parts touch others as well. I love and long for more points of contact along those lines.
