What does thunder know

Foundations not of stone but of earth

and bone and air

the holy wind


not ashes here but embers


ready to be blown into being


who can know 

what they will become?


but time is not ours.

what does earth know of dust?

or bedrock of sand on the shore?

what does thunder know

of a whisper that fills frail lungs?


time is not ours

but His,

as dust and bone and breath are His

and so,

in time

with Him

we breathe.
