psalm 19: drop by drop

the heavens declare your glory;
the depths speak praise
of your mystery.

every moment
your words issue forth:
ecstatic shouts bursting
through light years of creation,
secrets whispered from
the dark recesses
of my soul.

your wisdom is pure,
guiding my steps with
simplicity.
your teaching is love itself,
bringing the light back
to my eyes.
your darkness terrifies me,
purging my spirit
with delicious
emptiness.

please don’t let my speech
turn into buzzing
white noise, rumbling and
numbing the world
to your eloquence.

let my words be
worthy of yours,
dripping like beads of
golden honey into
our hungering
souls,
drop
by
drop.
