Farmer's Prayer

Lord, bless us with rain for our fields and crops Tiny pin drops of water in the dark Gentle tippy toe taps as opposed to clops Soaking while receiving no blighted mark Enkindling life, new growth, greenery moire Strengthening rootstalk and birthing seedpods Subtle beauty peeking from the boudoir Slight breath of wind as stem and leaf applauds Distant rumbles casting dreams of fortune Filtered flashes foreshadowing morning Every being given its due portion Sunlight greets a good night's sleep adorning Twilight brightens Your night's gifted labor We work, we dance to Creation's tabor

A beautifully written poem Michael. Your second stanza, especially, is amazing in language and rhyme. Great flow and imagery throughout. Good luck in the contest! :)

Thank you. I reread that second stanza. I'd have better luck in the contest if I could collect 3 of those back to back.
