HP FlashFiction: Poetry by Anne Sparks

As part of our on-going effort to give local writers/artists/poets/creators space to share their works, HP FlashFiction was created.

In this edition, we present two works of poetry by Anne Sparks.  To submit your works, simply send them to news@epheraldpost.com

My Manger

My manger is meager

the animals eager

Mary so lovely, we see her

This little manger

with us so many years

It is no stranger

but shared with loving joy and tears

The children’s gentle touch

Meant oh, so very much

To see a loving God we love so much

It is from Bethlehem

special wood and all

raised in the soil

Where Jesus walked

He worked and toiled

From the holy land, for all

 

Anne Sparks | December 2017

 

***

I say a prayer

 

The storms are coming

The thunder, lightning and rain

The terror is numbing

the cold is pain

There it goes

Who knows?

Rio Grande Electric

Now the power is down

Lightning hit the ground

I call to report trouble

Our problems may double

Our boys the linemen, are called

Bringing equipment and all

I am shining my candle light

Keeping it bright this stormy night

I pray our men will be safe tonight

Ride out the storm

Until all is norm
