God in Quotes

Ears pricked up
To receive the prophecy.
More than his Word – His words
Dangled between a pair of ear-rings
One up – the other down
Inverted commas but not inverted meaning
As comprehension dawns.
Tadpoles wriggling with joy
Tails up in anticipation
Bearers of the divine truth
Shaped in metamorphosis
From a randomised alphabet;
Tails down in disappointment -
They wanted more.

After John Swinfen led a Bromley Bible study and we recognised the direct speech in ‘second’ Isaiah.

See Isaiah 42
