Hush Song

"Be still and know that I am God." (Psalms 46:10)

be

still

shhhsh
what ifs
if onlys
whys
whens

be

quiet

this is the moment of
surrender
hands lifted
fingers unfurled
like petals
in offering

this is before
yes and amen
the quiet fissure
in time/space
between
heaven/hell
that I hide in

breathless moments
make poems worth reading
this is the

space

between the lines

the gaps
that make words of letters

quiet.

be here
to hear
or...

Be

quiet:

this is the breath
before the yes
between annuciation
and conception
of Christ
in you.

Abba singing
His hushsong
saying:

nothing

nothing

sweet nothing.
