Borrowing a prompt from poet and teacher, Jeff Hardin.(Here)
There in the big field back of the houses
it stood as though the overnight shower
had mushroomed it into being. We kids
gathered round it then pressed forward
to enter that great tent with flaps raised
letting in what bit of breeze was stirring.
Straw was scattered over the stubbled floor,
dusty, musty, hot, humid smell of barn
and row on row of folding chairs, empty,
waiting to cradle sinners’ sorry selves.
A lectern at the front stood serious,
full of grave responsibility for tonight’s
Rainbow Hollow Good News Tent Revival.
I stood behind the lectern, motioned
the others to a seat and preached a rousing,
shouting, glorious story of sin and death,
and born again. Then we ran out lest the Holy
come down at our possible sacrilege…
(though, I think He would have smiled at our game)
ran out into bright sunshine of biking, tag and country lanes.
