the flower on the freeway

inspired by Psalm 139
~ and a flower ~
Deborah Beach Giordano

No matter what I do
or where I go,
You are there, Most Holy One.

I cannot escape Your love;
though I may long to slink away,
to sit and sulk
and cover myself
in a blanket of resentment –
even there You will find me,
bringing Light into the darkness.
