Awakened Days

Updated on February 28, 2013

That was the day that begun


There in the morning!


There He was in the morning sun,

Sometimes so very hard to look so bright, it was.

That was the day begun

Strange dreams came to him

In his awakened days



That was the day the prophet was born

Of the Awakened one!



A peculiar sort, with his head in the clouds

Telling what he had witnessed in Galilee

In a certain Inn

It was a certain morn’

He rose from the tomb

But…..



No one recognized Him in the light

Not understanding what they saw

Hoping mysteries to come clear

It was so magnificent a site



After the healer came back from the grave

They got spun around

Each in a different direction

In the awakened days



First there was Cousin Mary

A luminous creature was she

Emerging from her trails

As tender and wise as a newborn

To be….



Being in Ephesus with John

Youngest of her sons close followers

In his zeal to witness

What had happened in Galilee!



“Please go to Nazareth”

The words came back to them

About the house of the Prophet

Far away in Galilee!



These are the awaken days

Of things yet to come

Mary had fled to find another place to live

Ended up in a cave



She needed time to look deeply

She said …..

And so she stayed

She lived near where He lived

Died…

Risen ….

Was HE!



Joseph, the spice dealer

Her loyal caretaker

Had cared for her son

Given up his only tomb

For the very Healer they adored!



These were their final days

They had seen much you see

Had stories to tell

In their final ways!



Many would listen

Many would nob

Many would love

Many would know

The truth

In the awakened days!



That was all so long ago. They were old now, seventy years it was, they still have most of their teeth, but little else remained the same.



In the awakened days!

      Lovely just a lovely piece here Debbie, I read much of the bibles passages and this one is very familiar and goes along the lines of being a true passage and example of a time once lived by Jesus himself, nicely written. Thumbs up and out!
