Jacob's Ladder

The clouds are restless
in the sky
tear-filled, brooding
they promise
to unleash a torrent
at any moment

The wind is wet
with the threat of rain

My heart is crushed
beneath this heavy sky
of trials
and I am forced to my knees
by the weight of them

but you come
like a shaft of pure light
breaking through
the clouds

Jacob's ladder
stretching upwards
so bright, so pure
you seem a solid thing
drawing my eyes to heaven

Drenched and weary
I will stand
and bask in a hope
no storm can wash
from my heart
