December 28th

“See, I have inscribed you on the palms of my hands;”  Isaiah 49:16a

when the world drops us
(quicker than a hot potato)
by the side of despair,
gather us up, where
we find our faces
tattooed on your hands,
so that you see us
every time you hold
your palms before your eyes
in prayer and love
