Isaiah…(Hebrew Scripture)

Isaiah…(Hebrew Scripture)

Alright Prophet—
reveal yourself!

Who were you?

Really?

Out you went.
You were driven…
your handle on an
eternal steering
wheel—

Curved roads
mountain tops
country sides—
you’d STOP

and ANNOUNCE

“One is coming”

One is coming
to restore what’s
been broken,
divided, lost.

You were gone
when he arrived—

Yet, your “oneness”
spoken.

He quoted you
more than any other prophet.

Funny—he left out your line
of vengeance…(Isaiah 61:1-2/Luke 4:17-19)
should we even
wonder why?

It’s really simple—
isn’t it prophet…?

The stones get
it as well
as the sea
and the blanket of
stars.

Interesting how
Theologians
cackle over
what you’d written.
Or—even if you
actually wrote it?

Poets, well
they spew words
like a sheet of
music
or an eloquent
mosaic
trying to make sense of it all.

For themselves?
For others…
others who listen?

Who listened to you, Isaiah?

Ahhhh yes,
those believing,
trusting,
hoping
folk without much of anything…

enduring
with a faith
not even death
could snatch
away.

“Young men [women] may grow tired and weary,
youths may stumble, but those who hope in Yahweh renew their strength,
they put out wings like eagles.
They run and do not grow weary,
walk and never tire.”
