Prismatic Simmer

Humming brain, close to simmer

Thoughts rise from heart’s well

Evinced by pinpoint bubbles

Unseen on fluid inner surface…

Memories sparked, words

Held in abeyance

Waiting for the Master’s hand

That beckons, or stays…

His Spirit—a pillar of fire

And a pillar of cloud*

Sprinkles living water over

Rippling cerebral hemisphere

Cools intemperate impulses

Ideas which might flash, catch

Lightning, cause sudden stampede

Deftly tames, turns them

To reflect Almighty’s image…

Prismatic creativity, rainbow

Arcs amid simmer’s mist.

*21 The LORD was going before them in a pillar of cloud by day to lead them on the way, and in a pillar of fire by night to give them light, that they might travel by day and by night. 22 He did not take away the pillar of cloud by day, nor the pillar of fire by night, from before the people.… Exodus 13:21-22  ~New American Standard Bible
