The Waking Soil

Let the fields and their crops burst out with joy!
Let the trees of the forest sing for joy…

— Psalm 96:12, NLT

When the blooms remind 

us of the nearing spring,

the refreshed roots

shooting up through

the waking soil, the unfurling

leaves, petals, wings —

life in abundance,

the blessings of living

amid God’s sweet renderings—

How wonderful to sing

in continual praises:

Worthy is our King!

—C.L. Fisher, February 2023
