Contemplative Provocation

Monstrous storms rage
toss me into strange times.
Bewildered! I look around,
my limbs fall apart,
my chest melts like wax.
My tongue calls me to succumb -
flee to safer parts, be among friends.
Yet some deeper stirring
speaks within my blood,
“stay awhile, explore these times,
in faith look to the promises of God,
journey amid understanding’s torn veil.
Go where the inexplicable 
and undefinable reveal 
the wonderment of God”.
