Streams in the Desert

Streams in the Desert
© 2023 Debbie Turner Chavers

I wanted you 
to be pretty
But you were not

You were all hard edges
and broken pieces
Covered in shame
Voicing blame

I approached you
Extending a cup of Living Water

You gasped
Drinking deeply
As a desert long since dry.

You began to bloom
A cactus released
Prickles still
Yet flowers began to bloom

Your beauty hidden
Now released in the Son.
