This morning a single singing bird
heralds the end of the storm,
after 4 men worked into the dead of night, before it.
4 men who steward the earth in my universe.
4 men that made repairs and worked the fields.
Salt of the earth has nothing to show,
Thy will be done was once 11 minutes dead and
A father and son, planted our daily bread
Ahead of the rain.
The world I know.
(by cs murphy 4-24-21. Shown is my husband Neil, once 11 minutes dead. He worked into the dead of night, came in, ate supper and went to bed. This is God in action.)
