Psalm 133

Here is a new take on Psalm 133 from Rachel Hackenberg.

Psalm 133

How very good and pleasant it is
when kindred live together in unity!

It is like a pianist
pouring beauty into the world
with every note, with every
phrase rehearsed, reworked,
with every scale
spilled deliciously
into a song
like a mountain stream
tumbling out over its banks
with the fullness of spring rains.

How very good and pleasant it is
when kindred live together in unity!

It is like a woman
quietly brushing her hair
indulging in the joy
of undivided
being,
a moment
without fracture
and contortion from life’s
carnival mirrors;
at peace with herself.

How very good and pleasant it is
when kindred live together in unity!
