“Listen to the sound of my cry,
    my King and my God,
    for to you I pray.”  Psalm 5:2

hear the whispers
of hungry children;
give ear to the fears
of animals displaced
and terrorized by bush fires;
be attentive to those
huddled as drones
pass over their homes;
give ear to the
lonely, the forgotten,
the broken, the grieving;
tune in to those
who have no voice,
but whose hearts overflow
with worry and fears
teach us to listen
as intensely
as you
