For Thy Will Be Done



a flock of buntings
with
their majestic feathers glowing
red, blue-green, and yellow
swarming through
the
joyful atmosphere
swirling back and forth
in every direction
like an accordion motion
rendition of Gabriel's Oboe
thus
we give God
all the praises
lord
i
extract
all my faith
from thee
for
thy will be done
