The Call

by Marietta Lea B. Rosana

I am but a speck 
in this web of life,
a wave of memories
inspires me to be 
a child of the earth 
called to be light.

The universe beckons me
to be a haven for our common home,
a delight on sunless mornings,
a ripple of hope for this wounded world.

Who am I? 
if not for the Seed that was sown,
if not for God’s love and mercy;
Sewn with sacred strands 
by the Divine Maker

I am called to become 
God’s earthen vessel.
