Lenten meditation for March 19, 2021
                          
“The heavens are telling the glory of God; and the firmament proclaims his handiwork. Day to day pours
forth speech, and night to night declares knowledge.” ~ Psalm 19:1,2 (NRSV)
 
So many reasons for hope.
 
LOOKING OUT  
Silvered winter evening air   
  rejoices
  when skies unravel
  ancient promises—
  incanting just one word:
       Behold.
Refined, exquisite, sharp
  and bright,
  this day endures
  as visual afterthought,
  embraced inside
  winter’s long abiding.
