Jonah In The Belly of the Whale and Inside the Ark
Jonah
Inside the Belly of the Whale

Averse
to obey God's command
darkness envelop

the being
swallowed by the leviathan
of self.

Stomach acids digest
self's outer layer,
leave,

the inner kernel
on its knees
begging for salvation.

Inside the Ark

Out side a storm of hatred gathers,
         To beat against the doors of faith,
As two by two humanity enters,
         The Ark of God's Covenant.

Outside a storm of hatred rages
         Beating against the doors of faith,
Inside God's lovers sing praises
         Secure in His ancient Covenant.
