Early Advent, 2015

 

An Early Advent, 2015

 

It is in this

here, this

now, this

aching,

dream-strewn

shimmer,

that I dare

to raise

my spirit

and summon

a prayer

that has passed

through all

that has passed

through me,

gathering

an urgency

I can not bear

contain: COME!

 

COME!

in my every

opportunity

to soothe

to anoint

to heal

to grace.

 

COME!

in my thinking

in my writing

in my speaking

in my doing.

 

COME!

In my dreaming

in my living

in my hoping

In my loving.

 

COME!

Inspire us.

COME!

Embolden us.

COME!

Sustain us.

 

Until in a riot of glory,

in a full blossom of peace,

the world can sigh

and begin to heal.

 

Kimberly M. King, RSCJ
