day 46

O my God, I cry by day, but
         you do not answer;
   and by night, but find no
         rest.  Psalm 22:2

in the little girl
at the bus stop
   who smiles, 'hello!';
in the barista
who hands us a
   cuppa, winking,
      'it's on the house';
in the neighbor
who knocks on
the door after
   dinner, offering,
   'how about a piece
         of cake?';
in the grandchild
falling asleep in
   our arms, singing,
      'i love you'

you speak,
                but
are we listening?
