Wind and Fire    .."They were all filled with the Holy Spirit...." Acts 2:4
                            (Pentecost)

Father,

The Spirit?

That sweeps away
Adam's footprints;

That crumbles
Doubts walls;

That unseals
Truth's doors;

That billows
Life's sails.

The Fire?

That flames
Upwards always;

Wind and Fire

That lamp lighting
Dark nights of the soul;

That rouses
Love wearied;

That tenders
Joy's peace.

Father,

Thank You for
The Holy Spirit,
The Harvest Spirit,
That soothes the gnaw in my soul and
Stills Your enemy's ambition -- death.

About the Poet
I am 79 years of age. For the past nine years I have been retired, after forty years, from the field of alcoholism and drug abuse in New York City. I am married and we have two grown sons and two grand-sons. My life changed through a grace-experience in 1967. Writing Christian prayers is a particular interest of mine. This came about by a growing awareness of the spiritual in recovery from addictions. I choose, intellectually and emotionally, to believe the Triune God of the Sared Scriptures as my Healer.
