Since it’s still April and the Poem a Day challenge is going on, I’ll post another poem I’ve written this month. In the prompt given we were to add a word to “weary.” Battle Weary came to mine immediately.
Fall into bed, exhausted
after a day at rehab
as I’ve watched husband struggle
to regain strength.
Scruffy four-day beard,
wasting body of skin and bones,
peek from covers
as he falls into deep, drug-induced sleep.
His valiant effort seems to no avail.
Peace of Jesus descends
as petitions of prayer warriors
wash over me.
I awake to a cooing dove
assuring me the Holy Spirit is near.
