Now the earth was formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters.  —Genesis 1:2

Whoever you are, no matter how lonely,
the world offers itself to your imagination,
calls to you like the wild geese, harsh and exciting —
over and over announcing your place
in the family of things.  —Mary Oliver, “Dream Work,” Wild Geese, 1986  

Announce yourself, Spirit of God. Hover over the waters of our lives, call to us like the wild geese, harsh and exciting. And welcome us into the family of things, into the still forming fabric of all that is. Amen.
