A Poem and a Prayer

Peace, one and all…

In a Hand More Beautiful Still

There is beauty in the way
light dances upon each green leaf,
and majesty within
each peal of thunder.

Love stands behind each new thing
and each new moment,
like a shining pearl
held in a hand more beautiful still.

Beloved, may I become naught
but mouth and tongue and lips.
May all that I am become
love’s kiss upon Your bright face.

Merciful God

Merciful God, help us this day
and in each new thing we face.
May Your love shine forth
with the rising sun,
and may the glow of each new evening
find us all in the embrace of Your forgiveness.
May we find You before us
wheresoever we may wander,
and may each homecoming
see us arrive always at Your door.

Abdur Rahman, 14th June 2011.
