Out of Darkness

Joy is to behold God in everything.
Julian of Norwich

Out of Darkness
 By Elece Hollis

Out of the brown and sodden earth springs spring 
To surprise us again
Though we knew she was coming
 We knew and we waited and we thought ourselves

 Spring came one morning—sprouted up
Surprised us yet again
With purple crocus and yellow daffodils dancing
How from brown come such joyful colors—yet they come

 God created Adam from the dirt—now from the soil
Surprises us again
He mixes dirt with sunlight and rain 
 To wake our hearts and souls from winter's drear and set us
