Drought of the Soul

In this wasteland
of trials and tribulation
pain and suffering
illness and loss
my soul longs for solace
for Your refreshing waters
but there is only drought

My soul is parched
cracking at its brittle seams
thirsting for Your well of grace

And yet I realize
the well is there for the drawing
it is I who have failed
to lower my bucket
and drink deeply

——-

Yesterday at dVerse Poets Pub, Walter called for poems about either drought or deluge. I chose drought.

  5. Exactly Linda! What many great minds fail to realize sometimes. They can aspire higher if only discoveries had moved earlier. Clever lines!

  6. I hoped someone would have expressed this form of “drought” – the drought of the soul. You have touched this rather well, no surprise there, Linda!

  7. Wonderful Linda. Yes, it is we that fail and not God. He never know drought or deluge, only showers of blessings.
