On June 23, 2016. Descent

(for cyd.  for Vocations)
The descent beckons you will leave me There beside that porch the pale white afternoon wanes
Round a well of prayers, stones you struck remind me of your fullness. I need your light to sustain me breath Days and  minutes,  I gather them, Those beams crossing the altar those days of fright those days of  tiredness
In that hour, your affectionate embrace gathers my heart to yours;  tight – indestructible neat, eternal
You are half of me Close, like equal halves of the same heart Close, one, steeple of hope
My breasts ache every time you leave My heart breaks in your silence
I cry unto Thee, my Lord, my God!
And the while the candles burn I sink, but into delight, open Pray - till you return.
