Poem: Complaints

Proper 20 Year A
Psalm 105: 1-6, 37-45, Exodus 16: 2-15

There was water everywhere.
Water in the sea creating a barrier.
Water piled high to give a safe escape route.
Water in the cloud leading through the desert.
Water in the dew, evaporating into flakes.
Water from the rock to quench their thirst.
And all this in a dry, dusty desert.

There was food at significant moments.
Food prepared to set them on their journey.
Food to sustain them in their escape...
