Oh God alone
Who brought us this far
God our King
Master of everything.
I ask only for your surpassing presence.
Wash to grey all shades of waste.
Whet my tongue for exquisite taste
Of the shimmering nowness
Of eternity present.
Pregnant with life, in curious labor
Unaware the precious potential
Of this life, your life in me.
I am so tired of shyly hiding
From what I’ve never known before .
Projecting on tomorrow my “far-fetched” dreams.
Longings for rest and peace and tearless eyes
For sight of you to hold your hand.
This world awash like swallowed sand
Beneath a wave
Just there below, more real than me.
Rock of Eternity, Lover of soul,
Support of life and daily stroll.
