Counting the words

After Psalm 61

Counting the words
and descriptions
explained and listed,
a rock
a tower
a refuge
a tent
a shelter
and it continues:
a heritage
a presence
a love
a faithfulness
all of these words
these realities to embrace
these metaphors taking shape
on the plain consumed
by fire,
these words equating protection
these words defining safety
these words wrapping around,
