Day 1 (1/12/10): A Prayer for Haiti
Sobs-breaking, keening, shattering a world
already broken to bits.
My body, broken for you.
Ragdoll dyed with her owner's red....
My blood shed for you.
Jesus! Oh, Jesus!
Where are you now?
Where is the life in this death, Jesus?
How will resurrection happen this time?
Month 1 (2/12/10): An Answer
It didn't happen in three days-
May not happen completely forever-
But the resurrection has begun-
In prayers sent up
In supplies sent in
In money sent out
In every person who remembers
And acts toward the well-being
Of that devastated people.
Resurrection will happen
As long as we keep remembering
