DIVINING REBIRTH

Jasper gripped a crooked stick

Split at both ends

For hands to hold

Laughter followed him

All the day long

As he searched

For a watering hole

**********

Adults and children alike

How they’d giggle

Watching this old man

And his limb

Tossing out quips

Of indignation

But Jasper ignored all of them

**********

Everyone left the dessert one day

Except one young, little lad

For he had no one

Yes, he had lost all

Since the death of his mom and dad

**********

Jasper had heart

And took the boy in

Telling him he would not thirst

With a limb of his own

The boy would divine

To find water

And in it – rebirth
