Joshua Tree


As surely as God is trustworthy,
His clouds will rise in the desert sky
pillaring, muttering thunder
while close by, hot winds
blast the manzanita,
throw bright mica
at slick rock walls,
and bend low
the Joshua tree
with His fiery
breath.

We thought that all was lost,
that God, once denied,
would refuse to hear
our thirsty prayer;

but know you this:
His nature
is all
Yes.

Poem of the Day

poet Katharine Lee Bates

O beautiful for spacious skies,
For amber waves of grain,
For purple mountain majesties
Above the fruited plain!
America! America!
