From the Archives—Featuring Isha Wagner

Dear Whispers’ Readers,

It is a joy to travel back into our Whispers’ archives and read poetry from past issues.  Today, I bring to you a gem from our New Zealand friend, who has been with us since 2013.  Isha Wagner’s poetry reaches the soul of readers with her profound and insightful poetry. How often do we hide ourselves in fear that nearly swallows us?  May you all know the Giver.

Congratulations Isha!  It is such a pleasure to honor you today. Thank you for your ongoing support.  Best wishes always.

The Unseen Giver
(Previously published
at Whispers April 2, 2013

By Isha Wagner

Bread broken in little pieces
Tossed on to green grass
Hiding myself, feasting my eyes
Upon the flocks of birds
As they sweep down to peck
Beautiful wings flutter
On guard for predators
Unaware of the shrouded giver
My sudden movement and they
Soar away, then calm again
And they return
And I wonder if God cares in the same
Way for us, such fearful humans
As we twitch nervously
In the measure of our lives
And we know not the Giver.

  13. Dear Isha, Very good comparison. Humans are like a flock of birds, blind to Their giver, frightened by every stranger, until they're found friendly and trustworthy. This is why we have so many wars, and do not love one another. Very good writing.
