Solace After the Storm

by Mrs. KT

                                                    <<<~~~>>>


Enveloping, stately evergreen trees
flail and shudder as they
grievously bend throughout an early spring tempest,
heaving heavy sighs while sustaining ice-laden injuries; afterwards,

nature's noble sentinels, along this scarred woodland route,
reach deep into this beleaguered wanderer’s
selective consciousness, bearing
truth, steadfast and unequivocal,
ultimately whispering on the wind:
"Be on your guard; stand firm in the faith; be courageous; be strong..."  
(I Corinthians 16:13)

"Be on your guard; stand firm in the faith; be courageous; be strong..."
