The Locust & The Frog


What kind of miracle are you?

Are you the kind that raises the dead?

And heals the sick?

Do you feed the poor

by multiplying fish?

Or by dividing bread?

Do you help the blind see?

Or the lame walk?

Maybe you’ve strode out

on stormy seas,

and quieted the storm

with words?

Or are you the tempest?

Perhaps the locust,

and the frog?

Fire from the sky?

Rivers red with blood?

Or the Angel of Death

creeping by?

Are you a pillar of fire?

A guiding star?

An intervening hand?

Are you the earthquake?

The flood?

Or the famine?

What kind of miracle are you?

So far,

you have yet to choose.
