Then It Rained

Folder: 
Black Poetry

.

Too long the sun

unveiled cracked brown

earth and new growth

died on sered twigs.

.

No one heeded the cries

of the dying, ignored

the source of near

petrified wood for fire

when cold rains came.

.

Some defined heat

as naturally God-blessed.

The blackened seeds

kept protesting until

it rained and a seed

leaf was given permission

to be green.
