The evidence of solitude
So much time You spent this advent
in strict seclusion, apparently
to end our strict seclusions -
the evidence of solitude lifelong
and (we're taught) aeons longer;
in the shade and marrow
of this house of bones -
'til You get a foot in the door
promising to swing it wide
to the multitudes; to ecstasy and sorrow;
to death and decay; to Self; to God.
You intervened - constant Companion;
working Yourself into exhaustion
to change the equation.
Where once were two -
self on one side - universe on the other -
now there's an indistinct, yet powerful, volatile third -
a method and an option opened
to penetrate and redeem
the reclusive, drop soul nature of every human being.
O child of God, all He's asking
is that you share creation with its Creator.
