The Dragon’s Blood Tree
Bleeds a crimsom sap for Jascha
His violin shines
A Billion Years Ago
Iron oxide rose
The ground heaved and belched *
Rocky Mountains form
* “And God made the expanse and separated the waters that were under the expanse from the waters that were above the expanse. And it was so.” (Genesis 1:7).
We say so long to our beloved friend today. We shall meet again in God’s Heavenly Courts. The doctors gave her eight months to live. She lived another eighteen years. Yes, she grappled with multiple symptoms over the years, but by and large, the cancer did not claim victory over a happy, productive, godly life. Praise the Lord!
