HIDE AND SEEK
A meditation based upon Psalm 55
Sometimes it feels like the Divine is playing Hide-and-Seek with me
and I want to cry “Olly, olly, oxen free”
Do you know what that means?
It’s from the German “Alle, alle auch sind frei"
Which means, "Everyone, everyone also is free"
Yep, that’s it. I’m calling out to you, Divine, to be free,
for both of us to be free
out in the open, where we can both be seen and heard
Then I won’t have to endure my heart’s Whirling Dervish
Then I can cease running around trying to find you in your hiding place
We can join hands and skip along together
until we find the perfect camping spot
out in the wilderness
where there is no violence or sorrow
no greed or oppression
There we will watch sunrises and sunsets together
while I tell you everything
and sing to you, your favorite songs
Then, I will, once more, know peace
