America's Blindness
by Barbara Robinette

We were distracted
by the multitude of trees
in our daily life.

We were working
in the barns of prosperity
to pay more bills.

God's grace pours
from the heavens
upon our darkened world

but we did not drink
from the River of Life
that flows within
the trees and near the barns.

We could not see it.
