Where myself ends

Where myself ends                                                                                

Every moment I complete the perfect wholeness
and where myself ends, the other begins.

Myself is determined by the other –
my shape, position, duration; my capacity

and appearance. What do I ask God to change?
The moon’s course for my sake?

A star’s trajectory? The structure of a snowflake?
The scent of a jonquil? The whim of a schoolgirl

walking home down a footworn path? 
O petitioner, what are you prepared

to demand of God in order that your uninformed,
incessant and arbitrary wishes be granted?

O child of God, to surrender means to withdraw
your every request from the One Who made thee.
