“I do not occupy myself with great matters,
or with things that are too hard for me.
But I still my soul and make it quiet,
like a child upon its mother’s breast;
my soul is quieted within me.” Psalm 131 v. 2,3
searching for solutions
to unsolvable problems,
Busy chasing after illusion,
Oh, that I WOULD gather
up the scattered fragments
and return to the center.

the king of Moab from the eastern mountains:
‘Come, curse Jacob for me;
Come, denounce Israel!’

How can I denounce those whom the LORD has not denounced?
God of curses
God of blessing
Who calls to me this day?
