Redemption - Poem by James Hartsell

When summer comes
and lushes earth with green bouquets
to shelter creatures deep within,
the heart remembers times
when glee took flight on wings
of simple things-
brown children,
barefoot slipping through earth's ecstasy,
eyes worshipping the sky,
overflowing wonder
like water from a dipper
baptizing future sins.
