God of Shadows, is another of my Collects in the Time of Virus. It reflects sorrow heard through news on the radio.
Thanks again to Ian Ferguson for his photographs taken in East Gippsland last month and used with permission.
God of Shadows,
give shelter to hollow, shaken humans
bewildered by sudden closure.
Sturdy structures shattered, hopeful trade ended,
meaningful work gone.
In the shocking silence where nothing can be said,
let birdsong be heard.
