Floating Nest

Moanings and groanings,
I hear all around me.
The flock is restless.
Their sighs have found me.
The unknown day
of opening the door
seems so far away
when we’ve found no shore.
Our lingering spirits
threaten to doubt
all that God has promised
to bring us out.
As our prayers are lifted,
a calming arrives.
His Faithful Spirit
lovingly revives.
The flock is comforted
and finds sweet rest
knowing that God provided
this floating nest.

Another Day in the Ark

Another day in the ark,
and all the critters are stirring.
Every creature in here
wonders what is occurring.
Trapped inside
and distracted by life,
we are overwhelmed
by our strife.
Sometimes we see the windows.
Sometimes we see the sky.
Sometimes we spread our wings
and dream that we can fly.
Sometimes we even notice
the door across the room,
but then the lock and barricade
bring back the gloom.
Watching and waiting
for the Captain to unlock,
we continue to dream
of the day we dock.
