The wave starts
from the west
and fans east
rounds the curve
and travels north
geese honk above
and tasseled heads
bob and nod
He is good
“Fields of golden grain in the land,
cresting the mountains in wild exhuberance
Cornucopias of praise, praises
springing from the city like grass from the earth.
May he never be forgotten,
His fame shine on like sunshine.
May all godless people enter his circle of blessing
and bless the One who blessed them.
Blessed God, Israel’s God,
the one and only wonder-working God!
Blessed always his blazing glory!
All earth brims with his glory.
Yes and Yes and Yes.”
Psalm 72:16-20 (Message)
Written yesterday breezy morning as I sat on my daughter’s porch waiting to take my grandgirl’s first-day-of-third-grade pictures.
