House of Clay

House of Clay

Oh fragile house of clay
when winds of winter blow,
can you tolerate the battering
and weight of heavy snow?

When torrential rain falls
and you begin to creak,
will you emerge completely dry
free from mold and leaks?

House of clay can you endure
summer's blistering heat?
when upon your rooftop
the blazing sun should beat?

Should a sudden thunderstorm
assault you with its hail,
will you stand against it,
or will the storm prevail?

If the earth should quake
without any indication,
we hope that you're built upon
a strong and firm foundation! (c)

About the Poet
Christian since 1973, widowed in 2007, but by the divine appt. of God, I married a wonderful, godly widower in Oct. 2010. Three grown, married sons and eight grandchildren. My first love is Jesus who inspires my pen, for apart from Him I can do nothing! I desire to honor the Lord and edify readers thru poetry He inspires.
