the village smithy

“Now there was no smith to be found throughout all the land of Israel;” 1 Samuel 13:19a

may the smiths we find
be those who offer
hope in haikus,
who weave peace
from the strands
of broken promises,
who craft guitars
from guns and rifles,
who turn hollow trees
into free libraries
