humaness ~ written November 30, 2008

When it happened,
ended there was
darkness, your light
taken from this place

Before then, I had held
a radiance within
but now in this black
I am not even a flicker

And so (in secret)
you sent to me
your light
it touched my face

Caught in my ear:
“Those who mourn are lifted to safety
    The poor have hope, injustice shuts its mouth
        What did you expect, only good and no trouble
            Your God is no further than the closing of your heart”

So with heart in open
palm waiting, I sit
a mere creature with glints
of heaven inside
