A Special Prayer for the Crisis in Ukraine
Pat Schneider Between the last war and the next one, waiting for the northbound train that travels by the river, I sit alone in the middle of the night and welcome angels. Welcome back old hymns, old songs, all the music, the rhyme and rhythm, welcome angels, archangels, welcome early guesses, at the names of things, welcome wings. I have grown tired of disbelief. What once was brave is boring. Welcome back to my embrace stranger, visitor beside the Jabbok. Welcome wrestling until dawn, until it is my hip thrown out of joint, my pillow stone, my ladder of antique assumptions. Welcome what is not my own: glory on top rung, coming down.
To Pray for
Peace among all nations - and an end to the ongoing war between the Ukraine and Russia which continues
