Lent 2

You are right on time, O my God and my Peace,
breaking through the clouds to catch my attention
and cheer my troubled spirit. You are right on time,
Perfectly Unexpected God, waking me up from sleepwalking,
interrupting the course of carelessness -- the autopilot --
with which I was stepping into this day. Ah, you!
You are ever timely as you deepen my breath and
turn my head, saying "Wait. Don't miss me today.
Take me in and be satisfied. Seek my radiance,
and be radiant yourself with enduring peace."
