- 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
- 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.
