A Synchronicity Poem

 Poetic Bloomings invites us to attempt a synchronicity poem

"Synchronicity" defined is the state or fact of being synchronous or simultaneous; synchronism. Coincidence of events that seem to be meaningfully related.
This form consists of  eight three-line stanzas in a syllable pattern of 8/8/2. This poetry type has no rhyme and is usually written in the first person (variation removes that restriction) with a twist. The twist is to be revealed within the last two stanzas. Created by Debra Gundy.

If the Lord wills, the sun to rise
Dissolving the darkness in gold

If the Lord wills, rain to nurture
Earth’s fallow and field where farmers
Have toiled

If the Lord wills springtime its green
Summer’s gold and autumn’s crimson

If the Lord wills shaded bowers
Barren land to burgeon with corn
And wheat

If the Lord wills strength for the day
Hope in each gifted intake of
Man’s breath

If He imbues us with talents
And the marvelous indwelling
Of love

If we acknowledge our vast
And our complete dependence
In Him

Dare we to claim one syllable
Of His praise, His honor or His
