Broken waters heave; Spirit gasps, shrinks, shocked breathless, breeching the shore, still.
stripped to our atoms, our shining core, is glory [still] captive to chaos
Yellow moon tonight: jaundiced, gibbous, waning; still shining like the sun.
On blasphemy against the Holy Spirit Blasphemy: wilful submission to delusions of divinity Blasphemy: pinching out air, pressing the human back into the clay Blasphemy: wilful misinterpretation of the mercy of God
a child lies in the grass; we tattooed her at birth; we’ve got her number
because the grip of gravity cannot hold life down when heaven waits
it is not as though love can outrun the shadows thrown by the long stones
For two pins, I’d rip out every stitch, if it weren’t a waste of time.
Pray, not for an end to grief; tears fall, the waters of a hard labour.
oil poured on troubled water set alight: O God, make haste to help us.
