Resurrecting Me

Jesus is Spring
he tills the fallow fields of my soul
casting out stones
and pulling weeds
planting love
fertilizing with his own blood
harvesting life eternal.


Poetry Playing, Day 10
Prompt: Spring shows what God can do with a drab and dirty world. ~ Virgil A. Kraft

It’s National Poetry Month. Write a poem!


  1. Nice poem Q. Talk about me advertising to vote you are doing a swell job at this poetry thing as well. I guess we both are in the crapper about this ROFLMAO!!

  2. I loved this one, such a wonderful way to tie Spring and Christ together through resurrection, and told from such a deeply personal viewpoint.

    Il faut cultiver notre jardin, was my thought — and I do need to do that btw in many ways!

    You’re a third the way through April now, wow that happened fast.

    1. Susan — sometimes the plowing can get a little painful. And somebody just seems to be snatching days off the calendar without my consent!
