Hagar’s Question

Sinai Desert (digital art from a photo I took

Excerpt from  my poem Hagar’s Silence)

How did it come to be

that the all-powerful

Creator of all

was so powerless

as to need a nomad tribe

to fight as ally in a minor war…

The reward of promised land,

great wealth, divine favour,

and countless children

to be born, like desert sands…
