ART & POETRY BY PAUL & KATHY BOECHER©
A pale glimmer of mauve glistens over the city as the sun descends into night,
Leaving a path of darkened shadows and sparkling diamonds in its wake,
Reflections cover a cobblestone street, mirroring the lamplight from inside,
Some shops remain open, while others have ended another day.
Luminosity radiates from the corner church, inviting those in need to enter.
“Come to me,” is the inviting chant “I will carry your burdens for you.”
Simple words yet full of promise and hope,
“Come to me and I will give you rest.”
Peace is offered freely there.
You are under no obligation.
Open the door,
Step inside and receive the gift of a brand new day.
Your cares may still remain, but something new has been added unto you,
The true Light of the World will change everything.
