Pain terrific falls
I cry out from drowning, “Come
From terrific waves
Pain washes my soul and I
Find marvelous birth
After a weekend of intense pain flares, these word prompts of “Marvelous & Terrific” for the #HaikuChallenge offered at Ronovan Writes struck my heart so deeply. The poems that came to me felt so different than how I would have thought those words should fall.
And yet the birthing that is being brought forth from places that have felt so dead is a beautiful thing. Indeed, my Savior is answering my cry from out of the waves.
But your dead will live, Lord;
their bodies will rise—
let those who dwell in the dust
wake up and shout for joy—
your dew is like the dew of the morning;
the earth will give birth to her dead.
I pray for you, my friends, to see the Savior bringing new life to your dusty places as well.
