The Promise Stands

Encircled, pristine,
Celestial with life,
Aroma so pure – edible –
Of the rushing power of
Let there be, and
It was good.

Each blade a throat,
Each limb a response,
That the promise stands,
Vibrating, pulsing, in a
Hidden, green Eden:

All your children shall be taught
By the Lord!
Great shall be the
Peace of your


Isaiah 54: 13
