By Sister Sarita Vasquez

O God, how you permeate our humanity.
Your Being is threaded
into our very marrow
and vulnerable though we be
how these threads play
in our deep secret places
a music not our own.

This melody calls to us
to leave the known
and safe places
for the green meadows
beyond the dark valleys.

Shall I go?
