Imperfect Prose - New tenants

The old barn
once home to horses, cattle
kids of prairie blood,
serves us
as garden shed, storage space
and garage against winter wind
in this land where vehicles are "plugged in"
at night when temperatures
go down
to numbers unmentionable,
the walls are holding life
again

strokable
with deep purrs that praise their Creator
content simply to be
stretched out in joy
and warmed by the sun.

Let everything that has breath and every breath of life praise the Lord! Praise the Lord! (Hallelujah!) Psalm 150:6 Amplified



Stop by Emily's In the Hush of the Moon for more Imperfect Prose

What cute new tenants. I esp. like the part where they're purring praises to their Creator.

Great wording.

This is really nice. I especially love:

"strokable
with deep purrs that praise their Creator
content simply to be
stretched out in joy
and warmed by the sun."


This brings me joy. Thank you.
