SILENCE BLESSES ALL THE LONELY PARTS AND FILLS THEM WITH THE LIGHT OF BELONGING: August 9, 2019

“There is a loneliness that can be rocked.
Arms crossed, knees drawn up;
holding, holding on, this motion,
unlike a ship’s, smooths and contains the rocker.
It’s an inside kind— wrapped tight like skin.
Then there is a loneliness that roams.
No rocking can hold it down.
It is alive, on its own.
A dry and spreading thing
that makes the sound of one’s own feet
going seem to come from a far-off place.

Everybody knew what she was called,
but nobody anywhere knew her name.”

Toni Morrison, from The Origin of Others
quoting Beloved

LISTEN HERE

Let there be miracles.
Let there be healing of unknown proportions.
Let there be blind who can now see.
Let the lame be healed.
Let the demons be cast out.
Let the few fish and loaves feed thousands.
Let the waters be danced upon.

Let the demons be cast out.
Let the temple rise up in three days.
Let the stones roll out.
Let those who have sat waiting
for a blessing rise up from their mats,
and walk.
Let the waters of discontent
turn to the wines of fulfillment.
Let new skins be filled with new consciousness.
Let the chosen one walk the earth in us.
Let the beloved in us rise,
and the chosen in us
be resurrected.
