Desert Dust

Flashlight under the covers, reading, reading
Scripture savored like chocolate ice-cream---
Character castles for a secure future
Dripping stalactite images of beauty
One match lighting a labyrinth cave of peaks

Wisdom creates new life in the stagnant mind
When an icicle ignites reality
Into time tested truth, eternally seen
Yet internally digested as dry dust
Bitter sounding lemon saliva word songs

Truth cuts deep ugly scars before healing
But praise God healing is possible in Christ
And freedom from unrepentant rebellion
Can be shed like a snake's skin in the desert
Through repentance, rest and quiet reverence
