"Amaranth"

Tornados descended, uprooted order—

Sifted grassy fields and fence-post borders.


Might we plant a garden,

Though the land dips scarred?

With seeds from the crops we gathered last year,

We’ll mend the chaos the storms released here.

 

Peppers and squash sprout up fast-blooming flowers,

And bean vines grow inches in merely hours.


Red amaranth blossoms attract hummingbirds—

Dear creatures instruct with soft noise and no words.

A hummingbird swoops, catapults mystery—

We’ll watch, enthralled, longing for God’s majesty,

 

Let’s plant a garden. Warm colors defrost cold.

Like heaven’s hope. Christ known. Where streets appear gold.
