Beyond the Grey Sky

A meditation based on St Francis of Assisi's Canticle of Creation/the Sun:

Beyond the grey sky
sits brother sun
but his heat drives brother wind
and draws the waters
into clouds.

Those clouds, our sisters,
that shield the sun
bear the water, 
sustaining sister water, 
to the parched earth;
mother earth.

From earth we came; 
to earth we return,
but all through our lives
we are watched over
by you, our Father God;
unseen, all seeing.

Grey sky may loom over us
but brother sun shines on,
and your love for us
is more constant than the sun,
with no beginning and no ending.
Praise you.
