God’s people fleeing
from rabid charioteers—
which team wins the race?
 
~~ ~~ ~~
 
chariots ablaze
kindled by the wrath of God
in the wilderness
 
~~ ~~ ~~
 
deep into the sea
horse and chariot sinking
at the Lord’s command

 
Because Passover begins on Friday, 3 April, I have taken my inspiration for these snippets from the biblical story of the Exodus.

Exploring Forgiveness

~~~ 1 ~~~
 
How many times, Lord,
must I forgive the people
who do wrong to me?
 
~~~ 2 ~~~
 
Tell me, Sister Crow,
do you forgive Old Raven
when he torments you?
 
~~~ 3 ~~~
 
The serpent hisses:
It is foolish to forgive—
get even instead.
 
~~~ 4 ~~~
 
How great my hunger
to forgive my tormentor,
yet I find no crumb!
 
~~~ 5 ~~~
 
Though I can’t forgive
and I am deaf to singing,
still I long for you.
 
~~~ 6 ~~~
 
Nothing that you do
can compel me to forgive—
stones lodge in my heart.

And why take ye thought for raiment? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin: And yet I say unto you, That even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. Wherefore, if God so clothe the grass of the field, which to day is, and to morrow is cast into the oven, shall he not much more clothe you, O ye of little faith?
(Matthew 6:28-30, King James Version)
 


Flowers of the field
know nothing of Tarot cards,
yet the Lord provides.
