Sunday Psalms: Fictional Narratives & Poetry Inspired by the Psalms, Proverbs, & Other Biblical Works

Archers Gather

Archers gather ’round this quivering soul.
Arrows fly
Straight at my fragile
Heart.

Stalking plague snakes through
Bodies,
Death inhabits night.

And yet some invisible force
Rises up,
Dulls soaring blades,
Quenches pandemic disease.
No hocus-pocus trick,
No magician slight-of-hand.
Hope is my camouflage
Wickedness finds no resting place.

He that dwelleth in the secret place of the Most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of Jehovah, He is my refuge and my fortress; my God, in whom I trust. For He will deliver thee from the snare of the fowler, and from the deadly pestilence. He will cover thee with His pinions, and under His wings shalt thou take refuge: His truth is a shield and a buckler. Thou shalt not be afraid for the terror by night, nor for the arrow that flieth by day; for the pestilence that walketh in darkness, nor for the destruction that wasteth at noonday. A thousand shall fall at thy side, and ten thousand at thy right hand; but it shall not come nigh thee. Psalm 91:1-7 (ASV)

Question to Ponder: When/how have you been protected?
