GAIL EISENHART EPIC JOURNEY A drab stork clatters its beak in this land and narrow streets run crookedly where dried dung smokes in courtyards Abram, Friend of God, was born here

between the Tigris and Euphrates mute words re-tell ancient history and dusty wolves trot the wasteland in this place sanctified by blood

Dust, a brown filter, slays colors unchanged for four thousand years along the modern Euphrates Road Abram‘s God was personal and generous

left to fade on deserted streets the sun rises dull as an old coin where roads to the Persian Gulf meet requiring only modest burnt offerings

The Patriarch led his clan up the valley grazing his flocks, seeking a home God found him in the wilderness and made a covenant with him

a tolerant and respectful outsider in a world trembling before many gods in Canaan, millennia before Christ changed his name to Abraham

Abram‘s wife, Sarai, became Sarah her womb opened; her mind closed Hagar and peace were banished sands shifted; the desert still swelters
