This time of the year, here on Vancouver Island,
power outages happen
and the waters which surround us, can be difficult
… even tempestuous.
In the United States, a difficult time is happening
as mail-in and absentee ballots are being counted
and social media which infiltrate conversations, airways, papers, can be difficult
… tempestuous even.
May the United States survive the storm
of the threat of violence
and the end of democracy
that the unknown-at-this-time election outcome brings.
This night and for however long it takes
before a final outcome is determined in the U.S. Presidential race
may we envision, imagine, visualize, pray for
Light in the darkness
Peace in the tumult
Rest for the weary
Hope to the hopeless.
not for long
