Carla Ann Abraham

Redemption - Poem by Carla Ann Abraham

My heart scattered like dust through dry
inhospitable lands

The aching for place
For belonging

I wandered…

I felt I had no home
My house was splintered in the blistering sun
The days of life gathered thorns that scourged my eyes

Thrust into desert
To quench my thirst
To find meaning out of dry bones

Broken and Consecrated

I found beauty where wind chastens youth
The deep crevasses of my being
filled like canyon rivers that flow
Steadfast and holy
Like some unforeseen epic
