“to tell me something”

“to me doe thou incline thine eare”
– Whole Booke of Psalms lxxi.i,ii








to tell me something,
to see if I hear,
to try connecting
this way or that,
to proffer a hope,
to tender a care,
to see if the universe
listens you back.

to raise you, God,
a silvering eye,
moon-cut night
opening here.

not so much
a pushing back,
as pray your leading
into next,

mending something
needful here,
ridge-top cresting,
star-field near,
light into love
ours to bear,
God-light lending
strength to care.
