When God Spoke to Abraham

empty-bottles

When wind touches foliage
Some mistaken air for whispers.

They put their ears to open spaces
Waiting for advice, or perhaps
A semblance of want and leisure.

A purpose to contradict
The silence of their thoughts.

As quiet as the moment
Before God stayed Abraham’s
Hand.
