the heaving surf of traffic
the tide of timelines,
we prepare with prayer—
seeking true thoughts
finding a secure rock.
Called to hear, we listen:
the sounding resonance of Soul
guides and consoles us
filling consciousness with Truth.
Touching the heart and the mind
Love comes through the Comforter
gently, patiently, persistently,
commanding the wave. Until
the sea is settled—
an assured calm within and without
stretching not just to the far shores
but to the depths—a divine balm
calls us out to witness Christ’s reign,
to prove right here God’s domain.
