Joseph Had Dreams Too
When I dream I dream of a benevolent God. I do not dream
of monsters, of being cracked and broken, withering trees.
I dream of Exodus, of the God who grants deliverance. I do not dream
of being drowned when the Sea makes itself whole in fury.
I dream … I dream of writing poetry, of what it can be and do.
I dream of being cracked and unbroken, like the foundation of the earth.
