As spring moves to summer and we contemplate the call to be agents in transforming our lives and world, I thought this poem about hope was appropriate. I hope it touches your heart.
your progressive redneck preacher,
Breeze of Spring
like a leaf, dancing in the wind
daffodils blown in a scattering cloud of seed
unexpectedly from dark earth
like the warmth that breaks winter
like arms embracing mine
like love filling one’s chest
when once familiar eyes lock theirs
sparkling with starlight
Hope bursts forth
Unexpected, long awaited, oft forgotten.
