Azure Heavens

"Azure Heavens"
by Melanie Dorsey

In quietness and solitude I place my heart into Your hands.
I spread my treasure at Your feet.
Breathe in.
Breathe out.
And wait.

In pensive silence
Above the sounds
The whirring workings of my soul,
My inward eyes scan far beyond
Earth’s splendid azure heavens.

In wonderment I dare believe that each new sky
Of pink, coral and amethyst
In Sunrise
Or Sunset
Again embrace us in its glow.

In dark places
Or colorings vibrant,
Your amber eyes and honeyed hair,
Your artist’s hands with tender touch
No film nor canvas hold.

  1. Hi Melanie, thank you for visiting my "humor" blog, "Must We?" It's my fun little place to creatively wonder about things! I have actually seen your blog before and heard about your precious son, Andrew. My oldest son, Brian, is his same age. He just turned 13 in December. Your children are all so beautiful and I know you miss being with Andrew here on earth so much. I cannot even imagine, but I know that I must not hold onto my 3 kids too tightly as they belong to the Lord. I am just so honored to be their mommy. I can honestly say I enjoy each day with them and don't take the time for granted. Your story just reaffirms that feeling even more. I am going to keep you all in my prayers. What a special person you are. Thanks for sharing your life with us. I would love for you to visit me on my main blog, too, sceneofthegrime.blogspot.com I write there about homemaker stuff and also devotionals and things. Thanks again so much, for your comment. I'll be following! God bless you!

  2. Jacob and I were just commenting on what a beautiful sunrise there was this morning and it was pink and coral. Beautiful words...still praying.

  3. Melanie, you certainly have a gift with words. I found this poem so very soulful, like it is coming from somewhere deep within your heart. In His sorrow, Jesus said, "Take away the stone," and again he said, "unbind him and let him go free." I am praying that you can one day be unbound and set free, and allow that stone that keeps you in your tomb of sorrw to be moved. Envision Jesus and your friends rolling away the stone. Hear the voice of Jesus echoing, "Unbind her, let her go free!"
    My continued support and prayer. Love, ginny

  4. Thankful you are penning out your heart. I am blessed by your words. Sending prayers and love.

  8. Hey mella...very reflective and beautiful friend! Hope today was a good day for you!

  9. Wow! This really spoke to me about God's Promises to me - my favorite two colors are pink and purple and when God puts them in the SKY - I really pay attention! Keep His Pen flowing out of your heart!

    Love you, Stephanie

  10. The sunrise, those colors we cannot see anywhere else. It holds such promise, I think. And maybe whispers a little peace? For a little while? Peace to you, Melanie.


  11. Beautiful my friend......:-) Hugs

  12. Simply beautiful! Thank you for sharing. I hope you don't mind if I splash around a bit to get to know you.


  13. Breathe in.
    Breathe out.
    And wait.

    And one day we will be before our King in all His splendor.

    Melanie, once again your words comfort and encourage. They minister life to all of us.

    Thank you~

  14. Melanie,
    You have a beautiful gift dear one. Your writings are so insightful and beautiful. Thank you for sharing your gift through your pain.

    Have a Blessed day friend,

  15. Breathe in.
    Breathe out.
    And wait.

    It's so 'funny' but I DID do that BEFORE I even read this part.

    In quietness and solitude I place my heart into Your hands.

    it is when I read this that I started to breath in deeply,than out.

    Than I scrolled and read this part...

    This comforted my spirit right now...soothed me...


  16. Fixed on that horizon as well.

    What beauty! What promise!



  17. Melanie, we are praying for you all tonight. You are a gifted writer. And Avery is too! You are so teaching us to cherish each moment. Love.
