Tears of God

Hear a story:

Rough storm breaks.
Sitting on thick dark ocean
amid surging waters
a Storm-Petrel cries,
now with broken wing
from devouring fears, fashionable doubts, 
powerful passions, wayward belief.

An Gèadh Fiadhaich 
soars, searching, seeking, 
tender tears fall, calls;
“Ìosa Crìost mends your wing,
renews mind, soul and heart”.
Come fly with me through every storm.”
What song now will the Petrel sing?

An Gèadh Fiadhaich, Scots-Gaelic for the wild goose. A Celtic name symbolising the wonder of the Holy Spirit who moves untamed by humanity.
