Staid in the cleft

Exodus 33:22 “…I will put you in a cleft in the rock and cover you with my hand…”*

My son in the cleft, Barren River Lake, Kentucky

My son in the cleft, Barren River Lake, Kentucky

……….

Like a chick nestled under hen

or a child tucked snuggly in.

……….

Like chirping birds in a mud-packed nest

or hibernating bears at winter’s rest.

……….

Like a bee hidden in flower’s bloom

or a babe secured in mother’s womb.

……….

Like a climbing kid who’s found a safe spot

find me staid in the cleft of the rock.

……….
