From Psalm 126

They that sow in tears
shall reap in joy.

He that goeth forth and weepeth,
bearing precious seed,
shall doubtless come again
with rejoicing,
bringing his sheaves with him.

Psalm 126: 5 – 6 (KJV)

sunrise after the storm

sunrise
after the storm
glistening lake-waves
branches coated with ice
and a crow cawing

after the storm
driftwood washes to shore
from other places
what we let go
what we keep

for my father

Harold A. Borgh, Ph.D (1915 – 1983)
