A song of hope

song of hope

song of hope of the Redeemed
the first crocus of Spring
fighting off the shackles of frost.
A melody of the divine
incense of love in clear skies
the promise of life
to naked trees.
These are days of sprinkled redemption
these quiet days
before the gusted shouts and blustered demands
of Easter.
These are days of clarity
as events conspire
to darken the skies
and close the eyes
of a God losing a child
and mankind gaining a God.
The tree of life will drip with fleshy leaf
and the fruited red of spilling.

Could this be any more profound? I don't think so. "the promise of life to naked trees"; it is the hope of His Spring we need on our minds and in our hearts daily.
