“I did not speak in secret,
    in a land of darkness;
I did not say to the offspring of Jacob,
    ‘Seek me in chaos.’
I the Lord speak the truth,
    I declare what is right.”  Isaiah 45:19

no enigmatic codes,
no clandestine meetings
   in alleyways,
no mazes without an exit,
an invitation
to find your grace
   in whispers of peace
   and light-filled truth,
not in the chaotic
spite of bitterness
words of denigration
of your children
