Best Poem of Jeff Bresee

Prepare For Rain

A tale I once heard of two men of the land
Who’s lives were defined by the toil of their hands.

Each man was beholden to God for increase.
So when the time came that the precious rain ceased,

Each fell to his knees and petitioned the Lord
To open the heavens and let the rains pour.

While one sat and looked to the skies for reprieve
The other arose and walked to the dry stream,

And pulled boards and built dams, again and again
Doing all he that knew to prepare for the rain.

So now in my life I consider this tale
Each time that I stumble or...

Read the full of Prepare For Rain

A Prayer Unanswered

Waking I find
Another chill encrusted day
Awaits me
Where I shall walk alone in step of time
To the blighted rhythm
Of what must be
And the looming shadows
Of what might have been

[Hata Bildir]
