Forgiveness in the Night
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 1 time

    Forgiveness in the Night

I listen in the dead of night,
And then I hear, it can’t be missed,
The call repeats within my ear,
Illuminated by a light
That leaves my spirit kissed.       

Within the calm and quiet wrap
Of silence still, the only sound
I hear proclaims His perfect will
That fills the empty mortal gap
In which my soul is bound.

Here, thoughts no longer are distortions
Of the day, there is no fear,
Forgiveness washes shame away
By mysteries of great proportions
Heaven-sent and clear.

As clear as crystal water flowing
Over stones, the stones cry out,
The living water cleans, atones,
And leaves the re-washed spirit glowing
Saved from spirit-drought.

Rich Tassinari 12/30/15

About the Poet
Husband, father, grandfather, and each title is my joy. As a youth, poetry was a means to express the inexpressable. I was attracted to (and still am) the beauty and brevity of verse. All flows out from God, and like a proper prayer, can flow back.
