Poetry Party: Jesus is My Rock :-)

from the earth

you were birthed

in violent trembles

shock and awe

propelling you out

into a new place

absent the molten

warmth of the

mother’s embrace.

carved through time

into a new thing

called by

ancient stirrings to

return to the

encircling warmth

of love where ash

and sky are one.
