Peace, Be Still: Mulled Psalm 3

Word funnel clouds loom:
Jagged chunks of debris whiz,
bang, thud online and on air;
brainstorm tornadoes roar
through boardrooms and classrooms
sucking up hearts.

Fossil fuel barons barrel ahead
from wealth to wealth, heedless of health hazards,
leaving leaks, quakes, spills in their wake,
wasting precious water, poisoning air;
discounting drought, fires, tsunamis,
rising seas, refugees and other
planetary insanity.


Yet every night your children sleep serenely;
each new dawn brings Your renewing.
Holy Creator, Wondrous Re-Creator,
You will disrupt the disrupters
and gather Your Shalom seekers
for faithful earth-tending.
