Blue Shadow Singing

Third Tuesday of Advent
Saint Lucy, Virgin, Martyr

Let us pray.
In your mercy, Lord,                                     
     dispel the darkness of this night.
Let your household sleep in peace
      so at the dawn of a new day
      they may, with joy, waken in your name.
Through Christ our Lord, Amen.
                                                                   Church Prayer

Breathing in prayer
During the still
Sleeping hour
Before light stumbles forth
Bedecked in azure and
Studded night.

I am a blue shadow
At the feet of God,
Praising syllables of
Dust tones descending,

Where all is tending,
Tending towards
Bones chalky
Our souls
Through vaults
Of night.
