Silence Found

https://sundaywhirl.wordpress.com/2019/03/17/wordle-395/

Three years it took

To find the silence

Fires had bellowed

Across the earth

Bowing beams of

Houses and hearts

Before burning every

Framed room, fiber

Devastating forests

Dreams and souls…

Prayers like incense

Lifted, Heaven opened

Grace rains came cool

Tender wave upon wave

Replenishing land, causing

Seed to quicken, flourish again.

Having found silvered silence

Luminous riches folded within…

I put on its complementary

Garment of writing

Danced mute song of praise.

Locusts of the Mind

https://wordofthedaychallenge.wordpress.com/2019/02/28/devour/

Not satisfied to have devoured and left

The Past a devastation, gnawing locusts

Swarm recent season…their whirring become

A buzz saw in the brain…joining with echo

Of 2018’s dominoes crashed into each other

One by one, leaving soul crushed, cut

Bruised and bereft…faith shredded.

Yet I soldier on, sword and shield of

Wielded words…and sack of new seed

To plant barren ground for hopeful harvest*.

*Joel 2:25, “Then I will make up to you for the years That the swarming locust has eaten, The creeping locust, the stripping locust and the gnawing locust”
