Awaiting



Awaiting                                                                                         

This attempted leaving of myself,
journeying inward;

down the rough-hewn passageways,
bearing the torch;

shaping and paring the heart;
genuflection; dissolution,

the chastening of the flesh,
narrowing of the gaze,

brooking of the burden,
elevating the chin,

erecting the spine:
harboring and dwelling within,

tending the fire; awaiting
His gaze and grace.

O child of God, silence and exaltation,
by turns.
