The Lord said, “Go out and stand on the mountain in the presence of the Lord, for the Lord is about to pass by.”

Then a great and powerful wind tore the mountains apart and shattered the rocks before the Lord,

But the Lord was not in the wind.

After the wind there was an earthquake, but the Lord was not in the earthquake.

After the earthquake came a fire, but the Lord was not in the fire.

And after the fire came a gentle whisper

When Elijah heard it, he pulled his cloak over his face

And went out and stood at the mouth of the cave.


From uncertainty

And the sting of unbelief


The whims of own understanding

And the

Canny designs

Of what is seen at first glance

From the manifests of the arm of flesh;

Rampant scenes-captivating

And the unsettling antics

Of the scarecrows

Grant me depth

To dispel

Intriguing pull of that which fleets


All that counterfeits

Give me vision and sight;


To behold substance beneath screensaver

Hold me still

O gentle
