thirsting to be filled

rivers run dry, lifting sand, exposing roots
ground cracks open, thirsting to be filled

the earth cries out for rain
as a soul pants for streams of God's holy presence

barren, exposed and unproducing
lives crack open, thirsting to be filled

awaken, all creation

listen for the sound of approaching thunder
prepare and wait in anticipation

watch and see what the Lord will do
