Above the Clouds

B'reshith - In the Beginning

B'reshith is the Hebrew word for Genesis, meaning "in the beginning". I was inspired by Genesis 1-3 at the beginning of 2020. While slowly recovering from a Coronavirus, I drafted this collection of poems. 


In 1902, artist George Watts spoke of his painting "Sower of the Systems": “My attempts at giving utterance and form to my ideas are like the child's design, who, "being asked. . . to draw God, made a great number of circular scribbles, and. . .struck his pencil through the center, making a great void. This is utterly absurd as a picture, but there is a greater idea in it than in Michelangelo’s old man with a white beard.”  This is how I attempt to express insights I discover - things about God while studying His Word, reflecting on who He is, and worshipping Him. I submit to you my messy scribbles, star-struck words, and glued-in pictures about an ineffable powerful, knowing, and loving Creator.

The Wounded Christ


_the mending branch_ is a collection of contemporary blank and free verse, traditional poems and excerpts, visual inspirations, and #thoughts. This unique integrated visual-verbal art form shows snippets of the author’s healing journey. In the big picture, it celebrates the desire and ability God has to mend each one of our broken hearts with both truth and tenderness. The creative and poignant expression through dozens of poems and photos offers countless opportunities on which to reflect and meditate. This leather-bound was a limited edition that was hand-signed and numbered by the author. 

In addition to the book, Lorenda also included for each recipient her original sketch of a budding branch.
