Across the Waters by Raymond A. Foss

The spirit, that which landed on the Christ
like a dove, on them at Pentecost,
like tongues of fire, living,
there at the beginning, before there was…
blowing across the waters, blowing,
quickening, the breath of life
the third face of God,
like the Father, like the Word,
Holy Spirit there,
blowing across the chaos,
the waters, the firmament

Breath on me now, give me renewed life,
wash over me, living water,
spirit of my brother
giving his all, sacrifice, pure
come down from heaven,
across the dark waters
fall on me, fill me, call me
I am here, Lord,
waiting for your voice
living, growing, teaching,
calling from within me
