Qumran – 1947

I have privilege of hosting dVerse poetics today with theme of “The Watchman” Won’t you join us?
 

go, set a watchman!

sheep herder found
high cave by sound
of stone tossed far,
heard crashing jar
held ancient scroll
preserved the whole
of Isaiah’s book
world scholars look
in prophecy
fulfilled it be
truth revealed
for all who see.

Isaiah penned
God’s script for men:
walk in my ways
be blessed your days.
he is just as he is good,
his timely words
our living food.
Deo volente,
we live, we breathe;
list watchman’s call
don’t turn away
lest judgement fall

oh, rue the day!

    I wonder if that shepherd had any idea what he had found.

    he is just as he is good,
    his timely words
    our living food.

    Words of the Godly faith can go a long way. Thanks for the prompt Lynn!
