Mirza Luke


A boy, the firstborn of his mother’s womb,
Sharp wounding arrow shot into the sky:
He bursts the clouds, the silver pours forth gold
As blessings heap in mounds, far rich rewards;
The fallen leaves are treasure troves explored
As gasping piles yield quickly unto life
And Olney bends so slightly to behold
The ten-year-old who runs within its bounds.
Time passes, leaves leave dust then loam,
A nineteen-year-old garden neatly tended:
A fertile planting ground for roses sweet
With thorns, though few, for he is not a god,
But throws his voice, an incense, heavenward,
Pleasing aroma resonating strong:
Jesus Christ the Apple Tree his song.

    Beautiful.
    And sort of reminds me of Dr. Seuss–in that it’s otherworldly, I mean.

    Psalms 127:3 Lo, children are an heritage of the LORD: and the fruit of the womb is his reward.
