Barren Womb

Barren womb of curse-cold earth,

embryo of soul’s rebirth;

winter breeds the hottest hopes,

where faith weds life and grace elopes.

Volcanic Ashes

Volcanic ashes,

burn away

my expectations

for this day;

fertile suffering,

lace the ground,

embryo’s offering,

growth compound.
