He Taught; Do We Learn?

by Jeral Williams

Wind hushed on the dry hillside.
He spoke, eyes piercing,
words haunting.

He asked why
flick sawdust, ignore planks?
Tear others down, ignore personal sin?

Why?
 Lives of fear,
seeking power, survival.

He gave the solution;
understanding the empty tomb
answers all fear.

Jeral Williams is a poet living in Mobile, Alabama. He is a retired professor whose Christian journey has been long and winding. He has published “Being a Proverbial Student,” a reflection on the need for Christian students to pursue knowledge, understanding and wisdom.
