“Drive-by Details”

driving back from dropping off Nathan
I noticed the people walking by
some trees
some houses
and as I scanned from left to right
right to left
I noticed all that I was missing

the blades of grass
the leaves on the trees
the chipped paint on houses
the names of those I passed

and I began to fill with emotion
how much do I miss every day

even lately
seeing pictures on Instagram
oceans
sunsets
mountains
countries
eyes welling with tears
desiring to go

not to any one place
but just to go
with a camera
a pen and paper
to capture with the eye
and express with the heart

I love the stories God lives through me
I love the stories I live through Him

singing
writing
creating
through His heart
singing
writing
creating through mine

intimacy every moment
co-union every breath

ONE
