day 253

For you have been a refuge
         for the poor,
   a refuge to the needy in
      their distress,
   a shelter from the
         rainstorm and a shade
         from the heat.  Isaiah 25:4

in the family
          (and pets)
   hunkered in classrooms;
in meals
      handed out to
      rough sleepers;
in neighbors
   keeping an eye
   on the newcomers,

you are,
as you always
have been.
