Yesterday I walked past a fallout shelter sign
in the “historic district” of a run-down part of town,
its triune logo sunny against the greying day,
repainted, no doubt, as an artefact of interest;
but yesterday is closer than it seems and safety,
like the Trinity to which we pray today for peace,
impenetrable in its mystery.
Praying for the relief of those afflicted by aggression and war in Ukraine. Praying for peace.
