What a strange artist’s studio
Clods of thirsty dirt
Awaiting water from below
Holy breath held
While nostrils and lungs form
Side of flesh and bone
Awakening as a partner
Unfinished yet deemed complete
Creation begins to live


O God of mysterious destinations
We step out in faith today
Into uncharted seas and on to unmapped trails
Trusting your dreams and promises

O Christ of open tombs
We tiptoe in grace today
Struggles behind and labors before
Following your footsteps and examples

O Spirit of adventurous energy
We dance in expectation today
Creativity blooming and imagination bursting
Hearing your whispers and laughter
