Contest entry for the Lighthouse Poetry Contest September 2019
Based on Matthew 3
Camel hair wrapping his waist
Eating a diet of locusts
Preaching to man about the King
He is calling out to all.
Preaching on mountain tops under clouds
Oceans roaring the testimony of fish
Volcanoes erupting in the pews
Jesus smiling in the breeze
Man chiseling sculptures of brass
Preaching fire and eating chicken
Salvaging the hoodlum lot.
Bible preaching ministers scything men
Locust and honey eating people
Baptizing with fire as serpents strike heels
Jordan river rising to the banks
Stones containing bread and food
Man running to John's side.
