Food for Thought-Prayer for the 2nd Week of Advent (inspired by Genesis 1)


While the encircling arc of dawn
Calls across the sea,
and the forest leaves
succumb to the idea of light,
we form our prayers,
in subconscious slumber,
from mumbling words,
thoughts which need
no translation,
among the vastness,
and empty void
we make our lives.
May we join
the well-lit goodness,
of God’s re-creating,
and re-making,
to see the blessedness,
before our eyes.
