Speech To The Unheard Voice.

Speech To The Unheard Voice


I sit on the porch waiting
For your voice.
”Speak Lord 
For your servant is listening.”*
The airplane drones above,
It is not you.
The distant train horn calls,
It is not you.
Cars rumble on the road,
It is not you.
Birds sing in the trees,
Closer, but it is not you.
Crickets chirp in the bush
Closer yet, but not you.
Do I hear you
While sitting on the porch?
No
Not today.
Is that a whisper?
I’m not sure.
Sometimes
I hear your voice;
More often not
The important thing is that
I come.


* From the Bible, 1 Samuel 3:9
