VESPERS (By The Sea)


"...he saw a stairway resting on the earth, with its top reaching to heaven, and the angels of God were ascending and descending on it. There above it stood the Lord..." 
(Genesis 28:12-13)


Prayer turns the soul
To the red October sky
Evening respite
From relentless rain
Relief from pain


Quiet waters touching
The edge of everything


Removing her scarf
She bares the shriven
Head of her illness
Bowing with Love's
Own Humility 


To God Who Is
Known to be
In the sanctuary
Of this place


Stairway between
Heaven and Earth

He walks on the top of the heights of the world; the Lord, the God of Hosts, is his name. (Amos 4:13)
