Even the Weeping

“Those who go out weeping, bearing the seed for sowing . . .”
     – Psalm 126: 6

Even the weeping bear seed.
Even the weeping.
Unknowingly,
unintentionally,
they nonetheless
bear seed.

O God,
bless the seed.
Bless the weeping.
Bring forth the world
you so steadfastly envision.

Move your spirit through us
to do the needed work,
the needed self-reflection,
the needed, necessary relinquishing.

Give us strength to persevere,
rest to regenerate,
and deep, deep wells of compassion
to care for whomever,
in this moment,
may be
the weeping.
