thunderstorm

water and thunder and fierce joy

write patterns in the sky,

and the sound of a ferocious love

rends the earth around me in a terrifying explosion.

I am lost, irrevocably lost,

and yet-

in chaos,

found, too,

where the pastures are green

and the shepherd stretches out his arms upon a tree.

an explosion and a peaceful pasture,

an easy yoke and a savage grace,

a carpenter and a lord.

Tell me who he is,

this lion, this lamb,

this thunderstorm, this kitten,

this king who carries redemption in his palms.
