Food for Thought-The Prophet Speaks


The prophet speaks,
and people weep,
they travel far,
past the bazaars,
into the heat,
waiting by river,
they cool their feet,
then John comes,
to say his peace,
about one greater,
a marked increase,
beyond what he can do,
more than water,
a Holy Spirit,
which works like glue,
permeating your soul,
steering clear of the shoals,
binding your scars,
wherever they are,
still we wait,
the one who comes,
can’t be far.
