sun striking chapel bells call to morning prayer unanswerable
stripped to our atoms, our shining core, is glory [still] captive to chaos
Violent ultra violet piercing dark skies; dangerous contrast.
in the beginning, when God began to create the heavens and the earth, all was formless and void, and the Spirit of God moved over the dark waters Suspended in salt water, albatross passes over; create me.
Haiku towards a reflection on the Flood and the ark as symbols of baptism: 1 Peter 3:13-22, Year A Easter 6 Children of the flood, each of us was drowned at birth, startled to breath.
Tender words shouted at my father; love rendered hard in his hearing.
Dislocated daydreams: salt spray from a city street; unkept promises.
How long, Lord, how long? The days are surely coming; God will not delay. How long, Lord, before justice rolls like a river? God will not delay. How long, Lord, how long? Pray without ceasing, knowing the days are coming….
God, singing in the shower, echoing slate grey tesselating clouds.
