Mercy…

dry-earth

May the whole creation,

humanity especially

fall into silent beholding,

letting go

of the un-necessary chatter and interpretations

and wait in humility

for the message of mercy

to disrobe humanity

of its self-preoccupations.

May healing come

in and through our silent beholding

of Your compassion.

Amen.
