News as unexpected as hailstorm in July

Arrives without warning and unwanted

Word that brings worry one cannot deny

Leaving ones faith shaken and daunted.


News as strange as eclipse at mid-day

Sent without warning and disbelieved

Word that offers reason to stop and pray

Making one feel they have been deceived.


News as surprising as spring without bloom

Comes without warning and leaves us unnerved

Word that tells of illness or doom and gloom

Leaving ones soul begging that life be preserved.


News as uncertain as sailing into stormy sea

Buffets without warning and leaves unsteady

Words that make us wait for an ending soon to be

Passing when it comes still finds us less than ready.
