Isaiah 54



Prophet is in love
With a City
A place of peace and assurance.
Zion of his dreams.
And visions.
Adorned with precious stones.

Delighted with children’s laughter.
Safe and eagerly
Learning the things of God.
Not a single weapon will
Be allowed to harm any.
The elderly keep respect
And keep thankful recognition.

The Bride is ravished
By her Groom.
Feasting, singing, dancing
Return to the streets.
Ramps of assault
Are torn away.

All came to pass after
Exile in Babylon, seventy years.
Long hike rejoicing.
Ezra. Zerubabel. Nehemiah.
Fighting, praying and rebuilding
Rededicating.
Word of revelation did not fail.
Nope never.
