2155

[Bible image from Bing dot com]

ravaged green pastures -
anguished cries of displacement
to a Good Shepherd

alleluia songs -
resounding its echoes
rowdy thunder bolts

ah yes there be days
this is earth's behavior -
Dear book of His Word

Ravaged green pastures? Not quite like those described in Psalm 23, eh?

Beautiful words.

Hope you are OK Gillena. Was thinking of you with all the mayhem caused by the hurricanes in your part of the world. Prayers for you and yours and all of your neighbours.
Take care and God bless .

" My shepherd is the Lord
there is nothing I shall want
Fresh and green are the pastures
where he gives me repose
Near restful waters he leads me
to revive my drooping spirit
My shepherd is the Lord
nothing indeed shall I want.
Surely goodness will follow me always
till the end of my days"
