Wadi Qelt

Wadi Qelt

In a deep and narrow gorge
the wadi winds its tortuous course
in a cliff face pocked with caves
monks ensconced in steep enclaves

Elijah was fed by ravens
praised the Lord, beheld the heavens
Down a steep and winding path
What good is being a polymath?

Wadi Qelt a holy place
I feel God’s serene embrace
past are now my life’s transgressions
I embrace my sins as lessons.
