Hi, I’m Jane and I love to write poetry!
I have just published a book of my poems that are a combination of memoir, adventure and faith.
I hope you enjoy this poem, which looks to a more spiritual way of seeing the world. To put it into context, my husband and I set out to sail from the Bahamas to Puerto Rico, a distance of about 850 nautical miles, in our sailboat, Sereno, when many of our systems failed. However, we found that the universe did hold us up, as we were given the ability and energy to make temporary fixes until we reached our landfall and we arrived safely in Mayeguez, Puerto Rico.
Quietly gazing at this beautiful world
Glimpses of the Creator
Challenge us to experience
More than we can ask or imagine.
Can we hold loosely our hard earned security?
The house, car, boat, perhaps a cabin too
Our planned tomorrows
For a life uncertain, unknown.
Are we brave enough to find the faith
To trust the universe will hold us
Awake us to live
Present, part of God’s creation.
I hope you enjoyed this poem from my book ‘A life in Poetry’. It is available from Amazon books in Canada, the U.S.A. and Europe.
Thanks for reading,
