A poem for Lent

Into tthe desert
Speak to my heart O God 
For my heart longs to hear
Words different, other, 
strange, unknown. 
Shout in my heart O God
Your impossible words 
That my heart may hear
And fall silent. 

Lure me, O God, out into the desert 
Away, forgetful, unprovided. 
Let me hunger and thirst
Confuse my heart, empty my mind 
Let the stillness overcome me. 

Speak to my heart O God 
For my heart longs to hear You.
