God’s Global Barnyard

Day 27 prompt: barns

My daughters

Brought them home

From Sunday School last week


Two barns

Some assembly required

Lightweight cardboard, tabbed and folded


Roof-top lettering

Declares these structures

Part of God’s Global Barnyard


Coin slots

Invite spare change

And we’ve been making deposits


Little girls

Who normally stockpile

Coins for candy store investments


Are giving

To fight hunger

And poverty around the world


The money

Will buy animals

For people we’ll never meet


Feed them

Start a business

Give them life and hope


Heavy now

Our barn banks

Hold several dollars in change


Small gifts

From young stewards

Fill stomachs, pockets and hearts
