Like many of the Psalms of lament in the Bible, this poem combines disillusionment and hope. Rather than the psalm format, though, I have chosen to locate it in the pre-Jewish myths of Zoroastrianism.
Ahura Mazda kneels in the sand
Patiently building a castle.
Grain by grain it rises.
Towers of trust.
Gates of welcome.
Living spaces lit with laughter.
Banquet halls full of sharing.
that a single stomp
can reduce the castle to rubble.
