Trinity Sunday

“We could say more but could never say enough;
    let the final word be: ‘He is the all.’  Sirach 43:27

tempted to keep
saying more, let
your silence be all
the language we need;
tempted to offer
lectures, let
the soft breath
of our loved ones
be all the whispers
of grace we need;
tempted to turn
to the powerful, the
celebrities, the tartuffians
to set the world straight,
let your weakness
be all the strength we need.
