Poetry Sunday ~ If...

All rights reserved: copyright © Joni Zipp

If on scorched land I fall

will someone carry me through
will I find relief through it all
parched lips will cease to be new.

If on the flaming fire
I search for seeping rain
will someone see the mire
and save me from the pain

If on knees I crawl
can you come to clear my mind
while all along I maul
I seek but cannot find

If all alone I fail
to the Lord I will confide.
on the seas I sail
He will be my guide.

Happy Birthday Astri

I came. I read. I enjoyed.
Unfortunately, I was still pretty sick from a nasty cold.

But I still came.

:) lovely job, as always.

Wherever you are, many thoughts go with you. I'm going back into your archives to reread your Sunday poetry. That way, I'll still get my fix. LOl. Starting all the way from the beginning.

I hope you are settling in, safe and sound.
