HOSEA'S LAMENT by kevissimo HOSEA'S LAMENT by kevissimo
HOSEA'S LAMENT - THE FLIGHT OF GOMER

"Hey Hosea....
Where has your woman gone?

Like the land you walk at night
her gutters filled with disgust
her eyes have lost their prize

Jezreel Lo-Ruhamah Lo-Ammi
An end
Unloved
Not my people

A progeny of shame

So to Gomer's flight
you cry
for love is still a love

To see her spread
before the reckless hands
as eyes dim with rain

Lament, Hosea
your people have fled
from light
from truth
from him

You watch as your people, your girl
abandon abandon
their fields....

Planted for glory
Planted for harvest
Then starved

A dream cracks open
like a window in a storm
They search, Hosea but cannot find
The plates are full of dust

And the ancient longing
burns like a forest
in a waterless summer


Then in the dark
with the eyes that see
but not by sight
The Valley of Achor becomes a door
Hope, dear Hosea hope

A voice of tenderness speaks again in the wilderness
the unloved will be loved
and speak love in return

But not just yet, my friend
Get up and brush your hair
Dust off your shoes
And go get your woman back"

So sorrowful... I feel as though, even the form itself is weeping...

I am always so moved by your work.

I may sound totally ignorant in this, but is the text a song, or something you've just written yourself? Either way both the text and the art are beautiful. :)

Thank you....it's something I wrote when I posted the image. I very rarely write something before hand. I usually don't remember what I wrote until I read it the next morning...
