A Poem To Sit With
19th Sunday of Ordinary Time
August 7, 2016
J. Janda


Faith is the realization of what is hoped for
and evidence of things not seen.
(Second Reading)


Noah

Noah left
his
fear in the

ark with
only
a rainbow

for surety

something
he
could not

pocket
or
cling to

only witness
after
storms—but

that was
enough
to him and

all who
keep
promise
