Mercy…

divine-mercy

Mercy the eyes searching down into the valley for any sign of return…

Mercy the eyes of love awaiting.

Mercy the ears attuned to the cry of souls drowning in their stench…

Mercy the ears of love listening.

Mercy the lips inhaling/exhaling the names of the lost ones…

Mercy the lips of love calling.

Mercy the feet trudging through the ditch to rescue the bondaged …

Mercy the feet of love running.

Mercy the arms of strength magnificent lifting in resurrection the lifeless souls…

Mercy the arms of love lifting.

Mercy the embrace of extravagant love wrapping the broken in wholeness and healing…

Mercy the embrace of love encircling.

Mercy the love that invites us home.
