THE PROFESSIONAL HEALERS (#7 IN A SERIES)

STEPPING OUT WITH SARAH

In two concerts, fell asleep,

Didn’t want to make a clean sweep…

So sat outside

Eyes open wide,

That honky-tonk rhythm to keep.

From my hallway chair

(Near the fish tank there)…

That bopping beat

Bounced my seat,

Passersby smiled and stared.

Sarah, Activities Gal,

And I are great pals…

She comes to talk

While on her walk,

Am I just a check in her file?

Anyway,  I had a daydream,

A therapeutic dancing scheme…

Not for real

‘Though it appeals,

Putting Sarah through a few dance swings!

My therapists surely would cry,

My nurses would ask why…

I would soon

Break open foot wounds,

But Sarah–I wish we could try!

About Jonathan Caswell

Poet, author, servant of God the Heavenly father and the Lord Jesus Christ...working out his salvation with fear and trembling. - Not trusting in his own deeds, but depending totally upon the finished sacrificial work of Jesus Christ to be, by God's reckoning, a new creature, clothed in Christ's righteousness...which mortal humankind can never attain by their own weak efforts, apart from faith in Christ's work on our behalf. - College-educated, yet wise enough to see that what a man does will not be his ultimate identity nor affect how God sees him or her. - Called by God to do a very difficult thing...apart from God's grace, mercy and strength...to love the sinner (which we all--by nature--are) but hate the sin, which is only paid through Christ, God's Son, - My own God-given gift is that of being a Poet..showing that in all parts of life...God has a loving part in it...as hard as that is to always understand or perceive...given life's realities! Come join me on my journey of discovery?.
