Lie down in chaos

Anselm Kiefer - Man under a pyramid

He gives His beloved sleep.
(Psalm 127:2)

The bed decked in a week’s laundry, and
a million miniscule things left undone,
Sleep still says, “Rest your weary head.
The day is long, tomorrow longer,
and after that who knows.
For now, this minute, lie down.
In chaos, be still.”
So I am still,
and the chaos does not overwhelm me,
and the chaos will not overwhelm.
