Back and Forth

Ever-praying honest questions:
How long? Why?  Violence!
Justice always twisted!

Ever-living Holy One:
Why worldwide looters?
How long insatiable greed?

God hears the faithful prophet.
God sees cedars hacked down,
animals dead, people slaving, fighting,
dying for nothing;
impotent images idolized.

God fills creation, calling
everyone to holy silence.
God’s ageless promise echoes:
As earth knows water
all people will know me.

Viewing God’s light beyond vision
the praying prophet vows:
Though no fruit grows, no food nourishes,
I will always dance in Your pure joy.
