Lent - Day 16


god or the gods, the unknown,

that which imagined us, which stays

our hand,

our murderous hand,

and gives us


in the shadow of death,

our daily life,

and the dream still

of goodwill, of peace on earth.


flow and change, night and

the pulse of day.

An excerpt from "Mass for the Day of St. Thomas Didymus"
