Monday WRites 135


[images 1 and 5 are mine. 2,3,4, were found by a google search]

PREPARE YE
Strangely a voice taken by the wilderness
Carries through wind in supple willingness
Through tree branches and sand dunes
Air and sky lend ear to message strewn

There is a visitor and he who is coming
With his arrival will we be succumbing
To seducer friend intruder guest or cheat
Do we win him a feast of happy receipt

Preparation observes to itself a season
Rain or months brittle Dry lend reason
Nuances of hope become ready corners
Hearts of dust and grime let to scourers

A boy in a manger to whom knees bend
Offerings of health wealth and praise spend
PREPARE YE © gillena cox 2017

    Happy MM.

  8. That is a nifty use of rhyme, Gillena! I particularly like the lines:
    'Air and sky lend ear to message strewn'
    and
    'Nuances of hope become ready corners'.

  16. This is a very pretty poem with a vibrant message. 'Be prepared' is the byword for the season and beyond. I did like your lines, "seducer friend intruder guest or cheat Do we win him a feast of happy receipt." Sort of mystery in the biggest mystery in the year, every year since. And will be until it is revealed to us.
