Never Too Old to Be Love’s Child – Psalm 71

We are elders who sleep like children,
embraced in Your Peace. Wake us early,
Love. Surprise us with Easter Wonder!
Inner Wellspring, clean our bad news wounds;
bathe stonewalled spirits. Pure Life Water,
we drank You by womb cord and nipple.
Now Your creative juices nourish
prophet poets, musicians, artists.
But we are old and often ignored,
discounted, unread. Make us over
like You did with Abram and Sarah,
Elizabeth and Zechariah.
Life Renewer, help bitter Maras
live up to pleasant Naomi names.
Home-free in Your Presence, like Anna
and Simeon, we will tell, write, play,
sing, portray daily Your Ageless Grace.
