The Barren Gave Birth

             The Barren Gave Birth

Season by season, so sadly she knows
That year after year, with no reaping, he sows,
And, hence her womb’s garden holds stark emptiness,
Addition of earthly things only adds less.

She sees, though, the desert both barren and dry,
Still hot from the day and then cooled by night sky
Will glisten with dew like the stars of the night
And sow life on the earth from hope’s heavenly height.

The dew of the morning, the light of new sun,
The birth of another hoperise has begun,
And here in the still silent prayer of the morn,
God’s movements and motions again have been born.

When in the oasis of each desert soul,
The bells of a heavenly harvest will toll,
The sowers in spirit who faithfully keep
Attending His heavenly garden will reap.

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.
