Prepare ... Barren Earth
by Louanne Robinson
As there is a source of the Nile
Even so, there is a source from which a river of living water flows
In nature, a cascading torent may be born
from a tiny trickle, exuding from a cleft in a rock,
originating from some deep subterranean vault.
And so it is, the stream of life breaks forth
from the eternal rock of salvation,
in the mysterious depths of the soul,
pouring out to nurture new life in an arrid world.
Drink O barren earth.
Absorb and prepare.
The seeds are about to be planted.
The harvest draws close behind.
