Lent 12

Listen

Listen.
God is speaking,
Speaking in the sounds that you
try to ignore.

He speaks.
He speaks
in the scrape squeak,
clatter and rumble
of human activities.
Humanity,
created in His image,
doing what hands
have found to do.

Listen.
God is speaking,
in the silent spaces,
the pauses
in the music.

Lord, still
the anxious thoughts
the crazy zigzagging
of my to-do list.

Listen.
Be alone with your thoughts,
and let them pass
unengaged,
and then

Listen.
