Where myself ends

Where myself ends

Every moment I complete the process;
the perfect wholeness

and where myself ends, the other begins.
Myself determined by the other -

my shape, position, duration;
my capacity and appearance.

What do I ask of God?
To alter 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 seeker, what are you
prepared to demand of God

in order that your incessant
and arbitrary wishes be granted?

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