Made Things


The Scent of Water**
and the ticking of clocks
is keeping me awake.

the fragrance drawing
me to the well of the
the Giver
offering refreshment
for my soul.

The time keepers clicking
through the dark
marking the minutes–
telling me twice,
“take of each one”
“make of each one”
the most that you can.

Drink deep while the
water is here.

**Job 14:7-9, 13 & 14

    I love this, Jody. I've been waking up in the middle of the night lately and this speaks to me right now. Some of the sweetest moments shared between fully asleep and fully awake :).
