Simile

Cover my heart, O God,
like a cloud covers the sky,
and hide my brokenness
until your love rains with healing.

Light my way, O God,
like a fire blazes in the night,
and burn my fears to dust
so each spark guides like a star.

Bring me out with joy, O God,
like a spring breaks free from water,
and wash the soot & strain
from cluttering an outpouring of life.

on Psalm 105:39-41
