Holy for Sunday Whirl #76

Thanks, Brenda, for the wordle prompt!






the ambivalence of holy
hovers in a dazed state
while incense breathes fear
and flaps empty prayers
at souls who scurry to
seek a soupcon of tenderness
and a thimble full of water
the ambivalence of holy
becomes empty of essence
