Advent Again – day 10

“so that all may see and know…”


[Psalm #5] from 99 Psalms by SAID, translated from the German by Mark S Burrows

(Brewster, Mass.: Paraclete Press, 2013)



let me be a water puddle

that mirrors your heavens

and murmurs your prayers

so that the cicadas might understand me


“Puddle” by M.C. Escher

show yourself o lord

even if you have no other choice

than to come in the fierce coursing of blood

and take in the refugees

because every fleeing ends in your eye

even if those who flee forget you in their time of need

because only those who doubt in you

seek you
