Red Earth

By Rachel Ost

Adam, creation of the Most High

as is the ground from where

he came

Mountains, like chiseled muscle

Rivers, like beaded sweat running down

Bluest sky, the twinkling eye

Ground below, reddest earth

Both His creations

Both His to cherish

but one

only one earning

the death of His Son

a new Adam

so that the Adam

of today

might live


Rachel Ost is from the Diocese of West Missouri
