string prayer

According to some,
at its most basic—
at the ultramicroscopic level,
consists of oscillating strings—
movement and energy in vibration—
all in resonant relationship to all

which makes of creation a music we see—
in which we live and move and have our being—
a word, maybe,
made more than flesh—
encompassing the great dissonances
and great harmonies—
the melody and the cacophony
of what we know creation to be
amidst all that we don’t.

So our God, we pray—
peculiar vibrations rippling out into space and time
interacting with all others—
relating to all others,
and effecting change.

Attune our vibrations, we pray,
to who You are,
that our contribution to all that is
might be ever in Your name.
