A Poet’s Tithing

The Poet’s Tithing

“You will never make
any money doing that.”

And that is quite true.
Vision rarely pays though
Joseph did well enough
divining Pharaoh’s dreams.

What gratuity do we give
those visionaries who
bring together the pieces
of God unseen?

What grateful offering comes
of the poet’s reaping,
the best ram of the flock,
the best sheaf of wheat?

What tribute do
poets give for the
gift of light
the darkness
cannot comprehend?
