Troubling Questions

What defines your life:
an open or a closed door,
the day or the night?
How well can you know
the rain’s checkered history
in a thirsty land?
Their ways are not yours,
so why expect the screendoors
to listen to flies?
When the leaves grew mean,
did you almost drop your rake
and scream in terror?

The mother of Jesus was bold,
As all the great prophets foretold.
Through flood and through fire
Her utmost desire:
Inviting God in from the cold.
