“Ruth and Ruah” by Jane Beal

TimeofSingingCvr-Summer2017My poem, “Ruth and Ruah,” now appears in Time of Singing: A Journal of Christian Poetry 44:2 (Summer 2017), 36.

“RUTH AND RUAH”

The rushing wind blew
and chaff from the threshed barley
swirled in the air
over the field
where I saw you, kinsman-redeemer,
standing in sheaves still up-standing,
dressed in blue and gold.
