Slower Than Ordinary Time

What comes after the sudden stop

when reality and desire collide?

When your prayers are unanswered

and your heart feels like stone?

When the breath has been drawn from your lungs

and your limbs have turned to water.

When no path is seen, no answers come.

No blessings fall, no streams refresh.

Time has sped up.

Time has slowed down,

caught in the mire of dismay.

All is not well with the world.

Stephen was stoned.

Jesus was crucified.

And death still ravages life.
