Two Poems by JD DeHart: Parable Mountain, and Child

June 15, 2019



Parable Mountain

I call to you in
my high places where
it is easy to forget
your name.

I call to you in 
lower places, where
the earth binds me
with threats.

How easy it is
to name you there
as I am bent,
cast around by wind

Yet mysteriously
stronger in the process.








You call me
child even as I listen
to my own silence.

You have whispered
to me on my concrete
journeys inward

and across space,
reminding me of the
unseen valleys ahead,

hints at what
really matters after all.
