If We Live Long Enough (Poem)
BY LYNDA MCKINNEY LAMBERT
Apple trees will be loaded with fruit.
Bountiful fall harvests will
carry us through winter’s storms.
Despite bleak predictions that
everything will turn topside-turvy,
feast your eyes on higher ground.
Gardens are a gift from
Heaven, like a Matisse painting
if we live long enough.
Just remember to
keep a faithful watch.
Listen to wind-chimes on the porch
marking our place on winds of time.
Not to be forgotten, or
overtaken by fears, We were
planted by the Holy Spirit, long ago.
Quietly, sealed in Jesus, before created time. I
rub my eyes in wonder, to
see towering trees made by our
Unexpected storms always abate.
Vivid. Vulnerable. Victorious.
We sit in the golden global glory
“X’ marks our spot in the sky.
Yesterday’s visions led us to
Zion, our eternal home.
