The crystal clear

what is it that i would insist upon—
anchor in the weight of thought? 

would i lend my witness
to a confirmation of darkness? 

no 

insistence spills light everywhere 

i will not be hostage
to divisions
whispered speculations
titillations
of latest confrontations 

the crystal clear
sings its piercing protest—
silent amidst
cacophonies of
competing cries 

still small voice*
out-noising the noise
lucid truth
unsullied song 

you know the sound 

God sings you in the midst

—Joni Overton-Jung

*see I Kings 19:12
