Today the prayers overflow and overlap
Tragedy, Celebration, Sickness, Joy.
It is hard to know where to focus.
Too many things to hold together.
No overarching metaphor
No sense to it at all.
My mind darts from one thing to the next
Shifting from wonder and delight
to sadness and bewilderment
Lord, be present in the all of it
Like a child, may I see this whole world
safe in your hands.
