a scrim of clouds (the sparrow pray)

“Even the sparrow finds a home, and the swallow a nest for herself,
where she may lay her young, near your altars…” – Psalm 84:3

a scrim of clouds your crossing shade,
a boldened love to dare the way,
a world to brave enough the day,
a stranger come, a heart awake.

a threshold reaching step to make,
a turning in our soul to trace,
a god eureka lifting praise,
a calling meet, a courage stay.

a sacrifice of days to grace,
a cross to empty, giving made,
a temple for the sparrow pray,
a cup to pour, a faith to raise.

_________

(for those seeking sanctuary in houses of faith
and refuge from those pledging to live under God.)
