Valley of Bones


by Caroline Bardwell

Through stacks of bones his eyes did wade,
a sea of broken bodies piled.
Ezekiel breathed and flesh was made
and soon the place was running wild.
New lives restored despite the odds
against the man’s prophetic gift.
The Holy Spirit boldly prods
his lungs to wake the dead adrift.
Their spirits rise to joyous height
to know their death yet be made whole;
a chance to win a winless fight,
reclaiming for themselves their soul.
The Valley’s tears no longer pull
toward every limb and rib and skull.
