Advent

As a flame hollows out

a space in snow,

melt my coldness

with the warmth of your love.

As the sea

claims the shore

re-shaping the face of the land,

engulf me, mold me to your contours.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

As a stone, standing in the desert,

is sculpted over time by wind and sand

into a stark and eerie beauty,

mark me as your own.

As the motes dance

in the sunlit shaft,

and incense rises, making visible the light,

may I move to your joy, embody your love.

Church of St. Luke in the Fields, NYC
