INVITATION

A tremor colors the dryness,

a voice cuts through the gale:

 

“This one belongs to the journey,

should she choose to believe.”

 

A bell chimes in Heaven,

a shadow calls her name.

If death is not a beginning,

why do we reach for the sky?

 

A wave crosses the desert,

a shiver moves the plains:

 

“This one will taste the harvest,

she will carve the bark of faith.

A message’s dawned on her sorrow,

her task throughout the land:

 

 “This one is marked for greatness,

should she choose to believe.”

  3. I haven’t been by for awhile, but am so glad I stopped by to read this. Beautiful. I love this line: “This one will taste the harvest, she will carve the bark of faith.” I hope all is well with you…
