The voice that was
Will you continue to torment us?
Enough that we are on our way;
Some of us run, some loiter;
to erect the Calvary
pointing in opposite directions
to the same place, so impossible
scarecrow, recipient of our casts-off,
word only becomes at last
—R. S. Thomas. Mass for hard times.
"The voice that was as the remains of a smile on the sky's face said: 'Listen.'"
Creator God, for the well-being of our earthly life
