blessed be the ONE who catches rain spilled over

WHO

can hear the bleating

of an injured

lamb, one who reaches with

cleaved hooves and heart

straining to catch

the rain

before it falls

upon

the younglings.

WHO

hears the exhaled cry

of lambs

fighting to heal

wounds

impaled by barbed wire

scarred over

but tight when stretched.

WHO

catches rain

overflowing knock-kneed

limbs

pathetic

flailing to capture

pain before it

drenches

unscathed

babes.

WHO

but my Savior

outstretched

arms and pierced body

a sieve

sheltering

them

from mud-sunk hooves

through prayers

of

saints

*****

Benedictus

Sanguis

eius

pretiosissimus

*****

He who was seated on the throne said, “I am making everything new!”

Then he said, “Write this down, for these words are trustworthy and true.”

Revelation 21:5 (NIV)
