Melody of Presence
We trundle along week after week
day after day
moment by moment
moving through our lives
We begin again to find new rhythms
in Covid days that call us
to create patterns of connections
and begin the making-meaning
that gives purpose and direction.
And still the Great God issues the invitation
to each of us who hear Love's silent music
when acts of kindness
or patient countenance
play a melody of presence
that lingers in the soul
reminding us of God, the Living God
