Love's Famine

Moon shines paled and silver o'er the land
and ripples bright beyond the sands
stars light gleams of light beyond
this fallow earth which turns with song
and time proceeds in space
as life in air received with grace
and water joining all the lands afar
reflects that light in each earth bound jar;

lightening shafts its knife of light
and thunder cracks within our souls
as waves ascending crescendo down
upon a desolated bleeding heart,
tornados tear the tranquil mind
and ravage thoughts once kind,
nature tells of troubled times
and deep beneath the ocean swells
a calm pervades as waiting, waiting
for those deep volcanic flows
to burst upon the deep
with steam and molten rock
made from which, new islands grow;

and still we sit with permeating love,
unmoved by natures wroth
or winds of change
as in our hearts we dwell
in silent witness to natures violent will
and as a famine scours the land,
was it bereft of only rain
until our hearts melt in the sun
and pour forth Your love again?
