I will whisper

Dearly Beloved,
Grace and Peace to you.

I will whisper in your ear.

A voice of clear silence,
the breath the world came from.

A small boat in a light breeze
slips along the water.

More sun pours into the meadow
than it knows what to do with.

A figure vanishes into the crowd
but is not lost.
What if I am all of them?

The moments that have passed between us
do not disappear. I hold them
in my hand, ripening.

I have this blessing that expands
to fill the universe.
What can I do with it?
I hide it inside you from behind.

I touch you in places
not of your knowing,
a hand on your heart,
only deeper.

I never speak.


Hours after the rain,
the trees are still weeping.

Deep Blessings,
Pastor Steve
