Sparkler for the Day – Borderlands

Here is today’s Sparkler for the Day – Borderlands.


I need sunlight and air to live.

Let me feel that border

where the wind meets my cheek.

Maybe you know what I’m talking about,

or maybe you don’t,

but you feel it,

as you have felt other borders –

like the gray between dark and light

and the growth from meek to might.

I need to feel myself on the earth

where my footfall touches clay,

for I am clay myself

a miracle amalgamation

of clay, blood and water

awakened in the spark of life

and God-smacked with love.

You are that, too.

Come join me

where the sunlight meet the air.
