Mist, Earthquake, Grace - Poem by Hans Ostrom

If the mist lifts,
Let me know.
Meantime, I will
Be inside.

If the Earth shifts,
I’ll lie low.
I never liked that
Liquid ride.

If God sends gifts,
I won’t say No.
One must assume
They’re bona fide.

    I like the way you have tied these three stanzas together. As I said in my 'God's Gifts'....'Not all gifts fit\Or are the right color you see.' Happy New Year.
